Congratulations to the winners, and many thanks for everyone who participated in our contest.
This is how the algorithm works:
The fist thing I want to make sure of is we all understand that Judges are the ones who actually decide the winners, we -as organizers- are not part of this! We consider the average of points given to each entry is the winning pass based on Judges opinion, so it’s absolutely not a random process, Judges build their opinion based on the quality of entries.
The second step is to give each winner his/her place, points will be given based on valuable comments and interaction, how many tweets your post got, and as a bonus there is 10 points for each review of the contest sponsors. After that we give the levels based on the points for each our 15 winners.
I just thought to give you a hint about how we’ve got the results. If you would like to see the table of results and points, click here for PDF.
The Traffic Generation E-book
As we planned and stated before, we will include all the winning articles in one e-book, this will allow us to create a great source for everybody to lean from. The e-book will be hosted and available for download on the organizers blogs as soon as we are done with it, hopefully at the end of May 2011.
