What I learned…
- Start as early as possible, don’t get lazy!
- MSN can’t read 301 redirect to non-www using htaccess. I’ve waited for two months to take effect but nothing happen, though I’m still lucky that I manage to get the #2 rank at the end of the contest.
- Yahoo has a problem on ranking a website which is currently listed on Yahoo directory. Don’t redirect (301) your domain to you contest entry, NOYDIR seems not working and contiues to ignore by yahoo bot. I added 301 two weeks before the contest end and my rank decreased and almost vanished from the first page . I decided to take off the 301 redirect two days before and luckily again I finished rank 5 though my Google decreased by 1 rank.
So, as you can see, I am glad having do quite good, but mostly I am glad that so many people gave their unconditional support. Thanks to all, specially Jehzee “The Rising Superstar Blogger” and the rest of the gang who help my backlink (Batang Yagit, Jemme, Flaircandy, Cecile Maris, Mikko, Gleen, DOST Scholar, Sherwin, Edpudol, Tyrone, Kenneth, Whin, Moymoy Palaboy, William Hushburn, Roopio). If ever this list is incomplete, kindly post a comment so I can include you on the list.
