John Chow’s Blog Contest for Charity

I just found that John Chow is holding a new contest to give away $6,000 in CASH! $5,000 would go to the charity of your choice and $1,000 will go to you to spend however you want. If I win, I would give the $5K to the Philippine National Red Cross and re-invest the $1,000 in my Busby SEO Test activities.

The contest is being sponsored by XR.com. XR.com is a tiny url service that converts a long url to a shorter version. For example, this long url – http://www.garyviray.com/scorpio-predictions-for-2008-2009-busby-seo-test.html – can be shortened in XR.com and will become http://xr.com/scorpio-2009

If you sign up for an account, you’ll get access to statistics and find out how many opened the link. This can be very helpful in tracking campaign clicks sent through e-mail, social networks, and micro-blogging sites like Twitter, Plurk, among others. Try it out!
