And the Guest Blogging Winner is…

The Guest Blogging Competition has finally come to an end and today is the day where I have to announce the overall winner of the competition.

The winner of this competition is clear enough, the first runners up as well. However, it is kind of difficult to judge the third place winner because they performed equally well there.

Before we move into announcing the winners of this competition, I would like to quickly go through all the statistic of these articles.

1. Why 4G iPad reportedly slated to be sold by Verizon and AT&T

2. Control USB Port And USB Device With Freeware

3. Tech Tips For Teens – Safe Internet Browsing

4. Do you trust social media?

5. Top 5 Antivirus Software of 2012

6. How to Fight Spam

So now, can you guess the winner?

The Second Runners Up of this guest blogging competition goes to:

Why 4G iPad reportedly slated to be sold by Verizon and AT&T

Prize: BDLot DVD Clone Ultimate

A tough call here, but eventually we have our second runners up.

Article statistic

Organic Traffic: 29

Referral Traffic: 34

The First Runners Up of this guest blogging competition goes to:

Do you trust social media?

Prize: $30 + Auslogic Disk Defrag Pro

Christopher did extremely well especially the traffic which comes from He has a nice advertising there driving traffic to his article. If this competition is all about marketing your own article on your own website/blog, there is no doubt that Christopher will stand out to be the overall winner.

Article statistic

Organic Traffic: 15

Referral Traffic: 57

Number of comments: 10

Number of votes: 3


And the winner of this guest blogging competition goes to:

Top 5 Antivirus Software of 2012

Prize: $70 + WinX DVD Ripper Platinum

What I like about Amit’s article is not about the content, but it is the organic traffic that drives into his article. The keyword “Top 5 antivirus” is kind of popular keyword in Google Adwords and the best thing here is, the article ranked pretty well world wide. On top of that, he has a huge fan base from his blog and I think he deserve to be the winner of this guest blogging competition

Article statistic

Organic Traffic:93

Referral Traffic: 113

Number of comments: 34

Number of votes: 6


As for the readers, we have two awards if you still remember and the lucky voter of this competition goes to:

Kannan Sobti

Prize: Genie Timeline Professional 2012


And last but not least, the top commentator goes to:

Amrik Virdi

Prize: Auslogic BoostSpeed 5 Pro

Note: The reason Amrik won this part of competition is because there is only two participants of this competition and only one able to comment in the way that I can evaluate. Presenting the prize to Amrik does not mean I totally agree with the content of his comments because I find some of them pretty bias. However, I appreciate the time taken for him to write a long comment there hence I will say to him, Good Job!


As the guest blogging competition is already coming to the end, I would take any feedback of this competition seriously such as a suggestion on how to better evaluate the article. I here would like to thank the writers, readers and sponsors for this competition. Winners will be contacted via email.

    Wow! What a post Alan!
    This is truly a wonderful source of information and a learning experiences for anyone thinking about holding a contest. It sure looks easy from far, but it’s easier said than done- and hats off to you for having done it wonderfully- right till the end (even with the little down moments in-between!)
    Congratulations to all the wonderful winners, though I was so sure that Amit would win because of his awesome personality and the ability of reaching out to people and touching their lives in her own way! Yes, I do know most of them, while the others I have yet to check out.
    The prizes offered are wonderful!
