If you think that you’ve got world-beating SEO skills and you’re ready to prove it, then you’ll want to get involved in Wix’s SEO Hero Challenge before time runs out to compete for that $50,000 cash prize.

The team at Wix think that their web building platform has gained an unfair reputation for having SEO issues and they’re ready to put up their money to prove the critics wrong.

The challenge is simple: Set up a new website (it has to be have been set up no earlier than 16 November) and outrank every other competitor – including Wix’s SEO team – for the search term, “SEO Hero.”

There are the usual rules against obscenity, copyright infringement and black hat tactics, but aside for that you’re free to build your site using any website builder (including CMS software like WordPress), and it all comes down to which site ranks highest on Google on 16 March 2017.

The competition represents a bold move by Wix, especially as their own SEO team will be going head-to-head with SEO professionals around the world, all of who are free to choose the most advantageous platform. If Wix gets beaten by several competitors using rival software, it could get embarrassing.
