iLounge launches Buyers’ Guide Bloggers Contest

iLounge today announced a new 2005 Buyers’ Guide (Spring/Summer) contest just for those of you with blogs. The contest is simple. We’ll publicize and award prizes to three blogs that spread the word about the new Buyers’ Guide.

Our grand prize winner will be picked on straight numbers: the blog with the most referrals to our Buyers’ Guide 2005 page will win a pair of Shure E5c Earphones (valued at $500). We will also select two second place winners randomly from the pool of all blogs with 25 or more unique referrals, so virtually anyone has a chance to win. Each of these second place winners will get one set of Etymotic 6i Isolator Earphones (valued at $149). All of these prizes were donated by All you need to do is insert one of the contest badges onto your blog’s page - with the code that lets us properly count your referrals.

Blah, I posted about the guide the day it was released and has probably already been snatched up by readers.

/me devises a plot to get back in the running for this.

Anywho, what would be code that properly counts referrals? A simple link?

I’m wondering the same thing… you could just make your webpage automatically redirect to a frame web page, with the top being iPodlounge’s website and the bottom being yours… and the user wouldn’t have to do anything… not sure if there’s really a legit way to calculate real clicks…

If you want to enter the contest and be counted, your best bet is to follow Steps 1 and 2 on this page and do not mirror.

Or better yet, continue to mirror, but don’t publicize the link on your page - just let people find it through iPodlounge.
