MaxCDN is one of the fastest CDNs in the world. A CDN makes your website fast by taking a copy of your website and delivering it from the closest servers to your website visitors. For example a user in London loading a US website will be slow, so what they do is allow that user to load the site from London, making it fast for them. Check them out at www.maxcdn.com.
MaxCDN is very easy to recommend, because JobMob has been using their service for almost 4 years, since November 2010.
Almost $2800 in prizes, everything you need to take your blogging to a whole new level.

While the Judges' Choice prize winner will also win:
The Judges' Choice prize will be the overall favorite guest post as voted by the contest judges (who will be announced later), regardless of how well the guest post performed in competition for the other prizes.
The idea behind this prize is that sometimes the contest has great posts that for whatever reason don't perform well, and this is a way one of them can still get some recognition.
For the latter two, I'll use random.org to pick winners from the list of contestants *who didn't win any of the 5 major prizes.

Our classic recipe-
Once your guest post is accepted as an entry, you’ll receive an email telling you exactly when your guest post will enter the contest and to compete for visitors.
After each guest post appears on JobMob, it will enter the Contest Rankings.
The Contest Rankings are determined by the number of unique visitors to your guest post during the 7 days after the post was published on JobMob.
That page will be updated frequently during the contest, and notification of those updates will be published on the JobMob Facebook page.
…is the author of the guest post appearing at the top of the Contest Rankings at the end of the contest, with the other grand prize winners decided based on their guest posts' rankings.
In case of a tie, the winner is the writer of the guest post with the most comments/trackbacks, Facebook Likes and Twitter retweets (in that order), so encourage your friends to link to your post and share it as well.

Easy – just follow the instructions and rules on the submission form.
One important new detail this year: there is a hard submission deadline.
Contest submissions will close once all 25 spots are filled or we reach the deadline of end-of-day, Monday July 21st. So act fast!
To help you act fast, also new this year: bonus points for submitting early. You'll earn an extra 25 points for every day remaining before the deadline when you submit your entry. For example, if you submit on July 11th, you'll earn 25 points x 10 days = 250 points that could go a long way to helping you on the contest leaderboard. Last year, the difference between 3rd and 4th place was 4 pageviews (=4 points), so this can make a big difference.
