Ibibo is running the Great Indian Blogger Hunt. Rs. 1.5 crore is up for grabs. Top 100 Bloggers will get paid every month based on their ibQ Score.
The blogger’s ibQ Score which determines the top 100 bloggers is calculated using three components:
* The Quality Score (QS) is a reflection of how readers rated a blogger’s blog.
* The Popularity Score (PS) is a reflection of how popular a blogger is based on a combination of page views, comments and number of fans that a blog has.
* The Activity Score (AS) is a reflection of the blogger’s consistency in posting new posts on the blog.
It is open to Indian citizens and residents of India who are above 18 years of age. See how the payout will be done. Their ad is figuring on Google Adsense units on several of my pages, so they seem determined to spread the word.
I just checked the rules that reveal that “the winners will be required to maintain and regularly update blogs on ibibo.com for a period of one year and the actual payment will depend on their performance metrics that would be told to them at the end of the contest.” Read the fine print carefully.
