Donna Fontenot of SEO Scoop has come up with a great idea for a select group of search marketers to shed some of those unwanted pounds and raise money for their favorite charity in the process. The project is called “SEOs Fight Fat For Charity” and has 11 search marketers committed to a “biggest loser” type of contest that runs from today till the end of March. The general idea is that whoever wins the contest, all the monies donated will go to his or her favorite charity.
Donna asked me if I’d like to be on board to which I originally replied, “Who you calling fat?” But in all seriousness, I do need to shed some pounds, especially seeing that SMX West is fast approaching, so I have jumped on board to compete with the others.
Skitzzo has started a charity meme designed to share link love with posters favorite charities in order to help them improve their rankings in the major search engines. The idea is copy the list of charities of the person who tags you and add five of your own, linking to them using anchor text that is somehow related to their cause.
