The Busby SEO Challenge ends in about 200 hours, and many Busby worshipers and SEO challengers already know that things are almost done. The last backlinks are in place, everyone is concentrating on what he does and on how other Busby SEO Challenge sites are reacting for this last straight line… Things seem to be uncertain at the present time for all Busby challengers, and none could clearly say who will win this contest…
Anyone in France is sure that the Sphereteam’s Busby SEO will be the one that will stand on pole position of the podium, on august 31st, and so am I, of course. Anyway, we know that our “friendly” foes from Indonesia, also believe they’ll do it, so, as I said nothing is done yet, for anyone of us.
We are not believers (France is not known to be a very “religious” country), and we know that fate has nothing to do with a challenger’s victory, only skills, knowledge and friends will do the difference. Anyway, since we know perfectly how the Internet world works – the Busby SEO Challenge one, too -, we have decided to do a little prayer to the Almighty Lord of the Worldwide Web… Google !
So here is the prayer that all Busby SEO Challenge devotee should repeat until the end of the Busby contest…
« Ô Almighty Lord Gooogle, who on this day
didst open the way of eternal Busbiness
to every nation, man and kangaroos
by the promised gift of thy Holy Algorithm :
Shed abroad this gift throughout the net
by the preaching of the Backlinks,
that it may reach to the ends of all times;
through Googlebot our adored guide, who liveth and reigneth
with thee, in the unity of the Holy Mountain View,
one Busby on top position, for ever and ever. Amen. »
« Ô Google, who on this last days of the unholy contest
didst teach the hearts of thy faithful sphereteam people
by sending to them the knowledge of thy Holy Secrets:
Grant us by the same Spirit
to have a right judgment in all SEO things,
and evermore to rejoice in this first position;
through the merits of your bot’s crawls, our Savior,
who liveth and decideth with thee,
in the unity of the same Spirit,
one SEO Challenge on top position, without end. Amen. »
« Let us pray that thy Googlish Divinity
may bring peace and victory to all the team.
Almighty and ever-living Goog,
you fulfilled the Challenge promise
by putting on us your Holy Hand.
May that Spirit unite the teammates and SEO on the Sphere
to proclaim your glory above Yahoo.
Grant this through your filters and sandboxes, your Gift
who made the power of your Holy search engine,
one Sphereteam on 1st, for ever and ever. Amen. »
« Let us pray that the flame of your Spirit
will descend upon our principles, “don’t be evil”
Father of the Internet,
millions web pages have appeared on this request
the false Indonesian believers who claimed to win.
Using your name, while true people gathered this prayer,
Opened to receive the Victory and Glory’s flame.
May it come to rest in our search history
and disperse the divisions of content and links.
With one voice around a single blog page,
may we praise your name in respect and everlasting love. »
« O Google the Holy Busby Lord
Who art light unto thine elect
Evermore enlighten the SERP.
Thou who art the only judge
Evermore enkindle our page.
Thou who art above Microsoft and Giver of traffic,
Evermore live in our Busby Challenge.
Thou who bestowest the perfect results,
Evermore replenish our Wordpress page.
As the Grandeur is thy symbol,
So forward our wishes.
As the Seocontest2008, so launch us heavenwards.
As a sitelinks, so grant our team Busby page.
As a duplicate content, so abate our temptations.
As an end of sandbox, so revive our languor.
As Pagerank, so purge our dross. »
« So, Ô Google, who art in Mountain View,
Hallowed be thy name and algorithm;
Thy kingdom come over MSN’s,
Thy will be done.
On Google earth, as it is in Google Sky.
Give us this day our Busby SEO Challenge victory;
And forgive us our greyhat methods
As we have forgiven the Indonesian’s;
And lead us not into only $2000 price,
But deliver us from the 2nd position.
For thine is the Internet,
And the SEO challenge,
And the decision,
Forever. Amen(e-nous la victoire) ! »
Besides, my sons and daughters, on this holy day where Google devoted children that we are made this prayer, we wanted the world to know that we respected the ten Google commandments, which are :
- Thou shalt use no other search engine before me.
- Thou shalt not spam or use unethical methods.
- Thou shalt not buy Adwords campaign for another competitor
- Thou shalt use good and fresh content, and plenty of backlinks
- Thou shalt not write dumb articles with foolish sense of humor
- Thou shalt not let anyone stole your banwidth without retaliation
- Thou shalt use Google Webmaster Tools and never Yahoo Site Explorer
- Thou shalt never have fun with holy texts
- Thou shalt use no 301 redirection
- Thou shalt never let your victory depend on a prayer rather than on your skills
So, if the Divine Google entity, or Matt Cutts, or any of the “angelic” quality raters do come to this page, please feel free to “manually” raise our rank, otherwise, we’ll have to do it the old way, which would be less fun.
But, I know, as usual, when I sing or tell a prayer, your answer is :
“Help yourself and Google will help you along the SERP”
