Clue 2 In the Performancing Treasure Hunt

Yesterday was the beginning of the week-long Performancing Treasure Hunt with seven great prizes up for grabs. Yesterday we unveiled Clue 1 and provided an alternative method for entering the contest.

Today, we are announcing Clue Number 2:

Clue #2: “All the SEO girls want Rand Fishkin”

Ok. So what are you supposed to do with the clue?

Well, here’s a 4 step algorithm for how to use the clue.

  1. Do a Google search on the exact clue phrase.
  2. Visit any page on the Internet that shows up in the Google SERPS for that phrase.
  3. Once you are on the page, find only the *outbound* links in the article.
  4. Write down the first letter of the domains of any *outbound* links.

So that’s how you get started. The earlier you start searching, the better, because the less chance there is of SERP corruption by mischiefs;-)

Once you’ve collected all the letters for a clue, try to unscramble them into a word.

Each clue represents one word. All the clues together will represent a phrase. The first person to identify that phrase wins the grand prize.

If you need confirmation that you’ve found the *official* pages of the Treasure Hunt, send me, Ryan a private message.

    Ignore the post by Kiltak(geeksaesexy) – he’s just trying to throw you off

  2. Is it me or am I really missing some letters? Anyhow, I might just be extra dull today. Good luck everyone! 😀
