For search engine visibility and remain a part of the challenge, participants must have
- 500+ words per post
- two or more images per post
- two or more embedded links to other challenge participants in each post
- publish at least three posts per week
- Follow me (@pinklotusbud) and Isabelle (@romanticisa) on Twitter for updates
The more media variety you have in an individual post, the better the search engine visibility.
Participating content must be dated June 1st through September 1st 2018.
Embedded links must be included in all participating content.
THIS PART IS IMPORTANT: Embedded linking is when you link to related content from other challenge participants within the context of your post versus at the very end. Here is an example below:
Linking to other bloggers
You can link to other content by highlighting the words or title that you will link and selecting the chain icon (depending on the Content Management System you are using- I use WordPress) or you can do it manually using an a link “<a href=”http://Summer100.me”> Linked Title goes here </a>”
FB & Guestbook links
Link to other participants consistently. You can find the links in the Summer 100 Guestbook or in the FB Group. The better your content and the more content you have, the likelier others will link to your posts. See Post Themes.
There will be an ongoing list of all participants that will be updated each round and shared via a google spreadsheet along with other challenge updates. See the list of participants here.
Each participant must meet the guidelines above in order to remain on the list.
Sign Up is from May 1st through May 25th
Challenge Begins June 1st
So How Does This Go Exactly
This year’s challenged with progress in “Rounds” where each round will be equivalent to approximately two weeks. As long as you average 5.5 posts per round, you’ll move on to the next round.
- Round 1- June 1st through June 15th
- Round 2- June 16th through June 30th
- Round 3- July 1st through July 15th
- Round 4- July 16th through July 31st
- Round 5- August 1st through August 15th
- Round 6- August 16th through August 31st
Those who do not progress to the next round or just didn’t participate may still contribute to the challenge at your own pace, participants won’t be required to deep link your posts, your link will be removed from the list of participants, and you won’t be eligible for prizes at the end.
However, feel free to continue to post to the Summer100 Guestbook as long as your post meets guidelines.
As long as you are participating with some consistency, I’m sure other participants will continue to link to your posts. Remember it’s all about community and growth! Be creative and have fun.
What do you need to do
Number of posts needed per round
- Sign-Up for the blog challenge.
- Write awesome posts while deep linking to fellow sex blogger challenge participants.
- Publish about 5.5 (</=) posts per round: For example, if you post 8 posts in round one and only 4 in round two, you’d still be safe to move on to round three because (8+4)/2 rounds equals 6 (greater than 5.5).
- Post your link in the Summer 100 Guestbook
Comment, Like, and Share the posts of fellow participants. Comment on participant’s actual posts. Tweet links. Tag participants in your IG stories. Share on your other social platforms.
That’s all. Isabelle and I will handle the rest.
Support Equals Success
Support equals success. Last year was such a success because each of us supported one another through visiting, commenting, and sharing one another posts. I know 2018 will be even more successful.
When posting via social media, use #Summer100 to make your content easy to find and follow.
All new post should be added to the Summer 100 guestbook and if you are a part of the Facebook group, you should add it there as well. The guestbook is perfect because anyone can access all the latest Summer 100 content regardless of participation. Post that do not meet criteria will not be approved to post to the guestbook and yes, we will be checking.
Do your best to Tweet or Retweet content from all challenge participants that meet criteria guidelines.
Posts that include affiliate links are absolutely welcomed. I assume that we all are very open to receiving income through our blogs. After all, we’ve worked so hard and we absolutely deserve it. If not, this may not be the challenge for you. As long as you exercise ethical practices and don’t spam others, this should be good.
Enable pingbacks on your blog so you can get an alert whenever someone links to your blog. (HOW TO ENABLE PINGBACKS ON WORDPRESS)
Producing one hundred post within 90 days is definitely a challenge. Fortunately, it’s not a requirement. Last summer the average was about half of that and the challenge still turned out amazingly well.
You’ll have plenty of support and encouragement. Certainly use this as an opportunity to be creative, be controversial, establish your niche, and collaborate with other bloggers.
This challenge is perfect for neo and marginalized sexbloggers who want to boost visibility. That is why I created it and it has worked amazingly for me 🤩.
We’ll be sending out post ideas, recommendations, tips and hacks throughout the challenge.
