2/21/2017 – The WIX SEO Challenge has entered the end of days for all SEO Hero competitors. New search engine optimization benchmarks have been demonstrated among the top 10 SEO Heroes―Ranking for very competitive keywords far beyond the scope of SEO Hero! Headquarters has witnessed both respectful & nefarious SEO methods utilized toward competition domains during the contest. HQ spends most of their SEO energy fending off rivals’ daily attempts to blast us out of the SERPs completely―after all this is just a game!
With less than 3 weeks remaining in the contest, who will be crowned the WIX Challenge SEO Hero? What will become of SEO Hero websites after the contest is judged? Will SEO Hero domains be on a one way trip to the search engine optimization boneyard? Will there be a supercharged spike of expired and deleted “SEO Hero” domains in the near future? Probably, but not without 10,000 disillusioned final stands―Welcome to the Matrix!
Optimization Heroes Unite!
Several months ago HQ extended an olive branch to the entire SEO Hero community. Our vision was to unite the competitors and welcome their contributions to the Heroes HQ blogs and forums. The ONLY content contributed from our more respectful competitors were a few one-liners and sad attempts to anchor their backlinks from our powerful competition domain.
The best heroes have been hit and pushed back in the rankings repeatedly with cheap Fiverr negative seo gigs, DDoS attacks, and software vulnerabilities/exploits such as rogue login attempts and a adversarial symphony of thousands of 404 errors… Page does not exist; but anyone can type in a browser —> creates a page that does not exist and we didn’t create it because: dang it, “we didn’t create that page!”
The WIX contest has brought out some of the best SEOs in the industry today. A tremendous effort was put forth by WIX’ very own official contest entry: giftedseohero.com, formerly seoheroschool.com. On one hand WIX provides this awesome challenge and the source is negatively attacked and somewhat ridiculed. Truth be told, WIX is good for SEO. Their website builder is responsible for helping to create thousands of successful business owners, media companies, and bloggers utilizing the WIX platform.
Dear SEO Hero competitors, your best search engine optimization contributions are self-created profiles and spun press releases/pure spam? Successful SEO can not possibly be measured by a four month contest. In a World of give and take, it seems anywhere “the take” is available, there won’t be any give given anytime soon. Successful websites can be created on any platform including WP, WIX, vBulletin, Drupal, and even straight up, good ole’ HTML coded sites with zero CMS platform integration.
Professional SEO, as with any marketing model, is all about longevity and this privilege is accomplished by networking, co-productions, and sharing/bridging/uniting of digital assets which in turn provide a better and broader user experience for all Internet consumers. Professional SEO is not shady tactics and spamming to the hills! What kind of SEO Hero do you wan’t to be?
