Searching is the second-most popular online activity after email and this campaign is designed to enliven people’s everyday search experiences. We wanted to create a compelling mechanic that would motivate and excite users while driving traffic and increasing query volume on Live Search.
This is not the first time Microsoft ran contests to promote Live Search. They have done it several times, the last time we covered it was in July 2007, which contains links to past contests as well.
