GrokDotCom’s got a lot of nerve when it comes to testing links. We told you — ever so subtly — to stop being a “more on.” Then we questioned the value of using generic calls to action (e.g, “click here“). Sure, we’ve shared our formula for writing persuasive links, but that doesn’t excuse flaunting our clients’ landing page optimization results. So, we’d like to make it up to you. It’s your turn to put the experts to the test.
With the help of our esteemed colleagues, Copyblogger Brian Clark & SEOmoz founder Rand Fishkin, five winners will have a single link tested on the landing page of their choice. The goal is simple. We want to show how words alone can make a big impact on conversion, and to help you make more money online. The contest is free. Anyone, in any industry, can enter.

So, if you have a better suggestion for a title, or would actually like to enter the contest, let’s hear it in the comments…
UPDATE: Regarding traffic, we’re looking for landing pages with 2,000 visitors per day, but we’ll consider pages with 1,000+ visitors per day.
[Winners will be announced Thursday, October 11th. Results and analysis of the winners' hyperlink tests will be posted a few weeks later. We're shooting for October 31st -- Halloween.]
