Nicosia, Cyprus (PRWEB) September 2, 2005
The rising stars of online marketing are no longer just professionals with post-graduate degrees, but programmers and webmasters with the knowledge and know-how to optimize a site's ranking on key-word search engines.
The $7,000 MSN Search Engine contest format is simple. Webmasters are asked to optimize their sites for the phrase "Online Casino BTDino," a search that currently yields no results. On February 26th, 2006, the webmasters who successfully crack the top 50 listings for this phrase will share in the $7,000 prize.
Earlier this year, BeTheDealer Casino sponsored the Google Fortuno Winnero Optimization Contest, in which hundreds of webmasters took part, generating over 132,000 (and counting) results for the phrase "Fortuno Winnero."
"SEO is one of the most powerful ways to promote products online," said Shmuel Ephron, CEO of BeTheDealer. "Our hope is to create an exciting and innovative opportunity for those with the ingenuity to operate these powerful tools."
While Google is currently the undisputed search engine leader, Microsoft's MSN Search is growing in popularity, and according to CEO Steve Balmer, will overtake Google in the not-too-distant future.
Leon Brodsky, CTO of BeTheDealer Casino and competition manager concurs. "With Fortuno Winnero, BeTheDealer discovered the internet's greatest Googler's. With BTDino, we'll uncover the world's best MSNer's."
Developed and owned by CV On Net, BeTheDealer's proprietary P2P software is protected by patent in the United States and a pending patent filed both in Europe. Operational since 2002, BeTheDealer is the only casino available that allows players to log on as the dealer and play directly against other users in a P2P environment.
