    How do you all feel about joining contests to get free SEO and webmaster content? I recently started telling everyone about a contest I'm hosting which is giving away over $300 worth of SEO and Webmaster content, yet no one seems to be interested in it. I was wondering your views in the matter.

    SEO is a comprehensive marketing technique that can easily go very wrong if not done properly. There are also practitioners and firms that don't do it properly on purpose, with the ultimate goal of getting what they want, rather than providing the services their clients actually need. With that in mind, there are two possible reasons for the lack of interest in your contest.
    1) Concern over the quality of the content being offered
    2) Concern over the value of the content being offered. SEO is an ongoing process, not "once and done". Without a marketing campaign to back it up, whatever gain, if any, the winner gets will quickly disappear. As a result, the $300 worth of content will be worth $0.
