Busby SEO Challenge : Still believing

The Busby SEO Challenge contest ends in less than three hours and an half, and all our Busby eyes are peering at Google’s results, especially on the Busby SEO Challenge official DC ( to check if things are moving, and in which order the Busby contest final podium entrants will be…

Each teammate/challenger of the Busby SEO is crossing his/her fingers, either in front of their screen, or while sleeping (it’s late in Western Europe, now), still believing that things will move at the last moment, and give us the victory on this SEO Challenge… And the hope could come from Google.com !

On my last check on Google, our Busby SEO Challenge had jumped to the 1st position, Google displaying our last article’s snippet, which shows it crawled our Busby site recently. Now, just let’s hope that other Google DC, especially the “official” Busby one, will align on this, giving our Busby SEO Challenge, the final victory…

As I said on my article about our prayers to Google, French people are not believers, and even if some of us are crossing their fingers (or clenching our buttocks, as we would say in France), that doesn’t mean we are superstitious. We just believe that our all-contest long efforts, and also the last ones, will pay. We know that we’ll manage to be first in the next few hours, the only incertitude concerning the Busby SEO Challenge last straight line, is whether or not we’ll do it on time :)

Google will be the only judge, but we clearly hope that the recent moves on Google.com will be reverberate on this “bad” DC that the Australian have chosen. Waiting for this, and still believing until the last minute, here is a screenshot of what we have now on Google :

Good luck to the Sphereteam, and good luck to others !
