Inbound link contest winner announced! posted by Earn Money Blogging

A big thanks to everyone who participated in the "Inbound Link Contest".  We have a winner!  A big congratulations go out to Marija.  Thank you for all your hard work on this.  While we had a lot of people participate, Marija was able to win with only 4 links!  So it wouldn't have taken a lot to win this contest!  We'll be having another contest soon so stay tuned.

The whole purpose of this contest was to get our bloggers networking with other webmasters and to start to build up their inbound links which will help their traffic.  Even a few links can help you with the search engines as they will see you as more of an authority on your topic the more inbound links you have.

To learn more about marketing your blog check out this post:

Inbound link contest - Win $100! posted by Earn Money Blogging

To try and motivate our bloggers to get inbound links we're going to have a contest to see which blogger can get the most inbound links to their blog. The contest begins now and ends July 31st, 2008. To be entered in to the contest all you have to do is go out and get as many websites to link to your blog as you can and at the end of the month send us an email listing all those links. All links must be active from August 1st through August 7th when we'll be judging the entries - a winner will be announced on August 7th. All entry emails must be received by Midnight on July 31st, 2008. You can email them to

We're going to impose some restrictions on the types of links you can get so please see below for the full list of links that do NOT count.

To get started simply go to Google and find other websites and blog that are about the sports and teams that you write about. Email the website owner and ask them for a link by explaining that you think your blog would be a good resource for their readers. Or offer to write a guest post for them with your by-line and URL at the bottom of the article. Or offer to exchange links with them by writing a quick write up of their site and a reciprocal link back to them. Some webmasters will be happy to add you to their blog roll even if you don't give them a link back (which is ideal) but some may want you to link back to them - you can easily do this with a quick blog entry on your blog about their website.

To learn more about inbound links and marketing your blog in general check out this post:

Vonn Does It! U.S. Sweeps World Cup Titles! posted by Brent Blaze

This ought to silence the those annoying Swiss cowbells.

Lindsey Vonn captured skiing's overall World Cup title, after finishing 11th in today's slalom event in Bormio, Italy.

As I noted yesterday, this marks only the second time in history that an American man and woman captured the overall World Cup titles in the same year. Phil Mahre and Tamara McKinney were the last American duo to accomplish the feat in 1983.

Congratulations, Lindsey!

Bode Miller Wins World Cup, Kicks Euro Tail! posted by Brent Blaze

Now here's a sport we talk about much at WizSports: skiing. But we have a great occasion to now.

American skier Bode Miller clinched his second overall World Cup skiing title in four years today. In a sport thoroughly dominated by Europeans, Miller becomes just the second American since the legendary Phil Mahre to capture multiple overall World Cup titles.

Mahre, a Northwest native, captured three consecutive World Cups from 1981-1983.

But it gets even better.

American skier Lindsey Vonn is poised to win the overall women's World Cup title over Germany's Marie Riesch if she can maintain her current 157-point lead in the standings.

If Vonn wins, she and Miller would become the first Americans since Mahre and Tamara McKinney in 1983--a full 25 years ago--to capture the overall titles in the same year.

Very cool!

Trust me, Miller winning is driving the Euros completely bonkers. Skiing is "their" sport, right behind soccer. Think of it this way: It's the equivalent of a German baseball team coming over and whopping up on the Yankees or the Red Sox. It just doesn't happen.

Way to go, Bode! And good luck, Lindsey!

As a former high school and college ski racer myself, man, this has me jazzed!

(Note: Miller split his relationship with the United States Ski Team over training issues. However, he still races as an American.)
