I'd imagine your contribution just got lost in the sea of giveaways - I doubt even the big contributors got very much traffic from that contest, there were just too many prizes!

@Courtney - It might help increase traffic, but my experiences show it doesn't do much. People would talk about the contest and link to me, but then only two people would enter and it was pretty laughable. It didn't work for me when I had low traffic, but your experience may be different? I hope so!

You mentioned blogs without alot of traffic don't do well with contests. You don't think a contest would help to increase traffic on a low traffic blog?

Yeah, I've just ran my own contest and it achieved what I wanted - a few link backs and an increase in traffic. It just depends on who you target and how successful it becomes. I suspect like what Travis said, it got lost amongst the prizes.
