Andy Hagans is a pretty good link builder, much better than myself. He came up with an idea to throw a contest, to get links. The contest is simple; give Andy a link baiting idea that works and you will earn $1,000. He posted the details at BizNicheMedia Link Baiting Competition: $1,000 Prize.
What is link baiting? Nick Wilson has a great post on it which he titled The Art of Linkbaiting.
But if you think about it, this competition that Andy is holding, is a link bait, in itself. So which idea will work best? The ideas posted in the competition or the competition itself? Hey, it got me to link to it. :)
