How the winners will be selected

On May 1st, 2007 we will make a search for "the keyword" on Google.com, MSN.com and Yahoo.com and combine the scores and subsequently determine a winner. The score is calculated by giving points to position 1 - 10 in each search engine. You will receive 10 points for a number one spot, and 1 point for a number 10 spot.

For example:

Your website: www.yourdomain.com

Rank in Google: 7 = 4 points
Rank in MSN: 10 = 1 point
Rank in Yahoo: 2 = 9 points

Total points for www.yourdomain.com = 14 points

If 2 contestants would end up with the same Total points then the contestant with the highest rank in Google.com will take the higher position. You can follow the the total points of this contest on our scorecard page.
