Research into the Wix SEO Hero Competition

It's a little early to be looking at links, but for now I looked into some content metrics and have now added some data on the tweets around SEO Hero as well. I've just added the hosting location of the websites as well.

What CMS are people using in the Wix SEO Hero contest?

I wanted to see what CMS competitors were favoring. Not surprisingly, WordPress came out on top. This is based off 126 websites active at the time I checked on my competitor list.

SEO Hero Competitors Server Location

Server location for all SEO Hero competitors that I have run across. This does not indicate where they are from, merely where their website is served from. My hypothesis was that most would try to be located as close to where the judge will search from as possible, which is New York, New York.

Google's Autosuggested Phrases

Update: Less than one month since the start of the contest, some new and interesting autosuggested phrases have appeared that include "seo hero wix", "seo hero contest", and "seo hero challenge".

For "seo hero", what currently shows as of 11/28/2016 are unrelated terms such as "seo heroku", "seo heroku app" and "seo herold". I expect this to change as the contest goes on and there is more content, more links, and more searches likely related to Wix. My prediction is by the end of the contest, "Wix SEO Hero" will be one of the autosuggested phrases. The list below was again from 11/28/2016 and was made by running the term through keywordshitter.com and also manually grabbing from autosuggest.
