    Ok thanks sir, so the post containing the link back will be the official entry?

    Is it ok to post the link on March 1? So we can also have the key phrase that we can include on the post itself.

    Good Day Sir!

    root domain or main domain should not contain the keyword


    On the page title or the post name itself, we may include the keyword?

    Did I get it right?

  • Will the ranking be on the domain or the blogpost? To clarify, I’ll give an example:

    hxxp:// – ranked no. 1
    hxxp:// – ranked no 20

    will the domain be declared the winner?
