Leave a comment and win $100 cash!

In the month of October and November, the BestTravelWebsites.com will be holding a contests where we will  give $100 in cash to the user with the most comments!. The contest will start on 7. October  (today), and will end 30. November, with the winners being declared on 1. December.

To leave a comment you don’t have to login, you just have to leave your e-mail address and pick a username.

A couple of rules:

  • No links and advertising in your comment. (example, this method has helped me, here is my affiliate link, bla…bla..).
  • Inconsequential posts such as “Lol,” “Yeah,” “I agree,” or “great post” will be considered Spam and will not be counted.
  • If you post a number of identical comments on different posts, they will be counted as inconsequential comments and will be deleted!

We have a lot of regular commenters that have intelligent things to say and really make the site more engaging. It would be cool to get more people involved in the discussion.

The Winner Will Be Announced, And Will Get an Introduction On My High Traffic Travel Blog here (if wanted)

Contest closes November 30th at 12 noon EST

I am so excited about this :) . Even if you are just reading this, post a “thank you comment please.”

  4. Jools Stone says:

    Interesting comp here, though it could encourage some of the more sophisticated/crafty spammers out there! What’s the scope of it? Is it any post on this site? Thanks, Jools.

    • mmatchev says:

      Thanks Jools for the comment. SPAM will be NOT tolerated here. We have “akismet” and it’s filtering 95% of the garbage comments automaticaly, the others are approved/deleted manually. Quallity is very important for us.

  5. Devesh says:

    Hey mmatchev

    Awesome idea. Thanks for this great contest.
    btw. You can try comment captcha plugin, it will only show captchas to those who add links or use spam words in comments.

    PS. Did you got my mail?

  6. A. Tatum says:

    Cool!. This is my first time here, but I’ll be keeping an eye on this. This is the first comment contest I’ve seen.

  7. Claudia says:

    Love the idea of this contest. I’ll get on it immediately.

    Thanks!

  8. mmatchev says:

    A. Tatum and Claudia, Welcome to the top commentators contest, on the homepage of the website at the right side bar, you will see the scorecard with the current comment contest leaders. Wish you good luck!

  9. Adam says:

    It sounds like a good idea for a contest..what if there is a tie? Is it then your choice which commenter to award the $100 to or do you split it?

  10. Traveler says:

    A quote for the day:

    “When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money”.

  11. mmatchev says:

    Adam, this is a good question and to be honest, I haven’t been thinking about this. Fair would be to split it I suppose…

  12. Keely Capel says:

    Great Idea Milan, it seems you have everyone eager to get started. Hope you don’t get spammed to much though!

  13. RonLeyba says:

    • Natalie says:

      @mmatchev, I am afraid I am going to have to duck out of the competition. I am back at work now, so need to earn the pennies rather than reading someone else’s website. LOL

      It was a good competition though. Thanks for that M and well done to RonLEyba

  24. mmatchev says:

    Today is the last chance to be a part of this! The blog comment contest is ending very soon!

  25. mmatchev says:

    Without any further delay, I am pleased to announce the $100 Cash “Comment Contest” winner.

    With 113 comments the winner is @RonLeyba, she will get $100 in her PayPal account today.

    By the way, I receive huge spam comments too, as of today it shows that in last 2 months I have recd. 14,154 spam comments. The spamm comments were trapped by Akisment (WordPress anti-spam plugin). I hope no genuine comments were trapped there too, because I couldn’t check mannualy everything marked as spam.

    My congratulations to @RonLeyba and to all the readers who participated. Even though the first comment contest did not generated response as much as I would liked, there are more contests planned in the next months with different structure

  26. RonLeyba says:

    Thanks for the prize Milan and thanks Natalie for the good competition.

    I just got back from being sick and its nice to know that I won the competition.
