I think competitions can work well on blogs. I announced one on my luxury travel blog only yesterday afternoon and, as a direct result, already have 150 new Facebook 'likes' and it hasn't be 24 hours yet.

I agree to a point. They can work, as long as you accept that a large percentage of your entrants are just competition fans and probably not the audience you are targeting.

Yes, I agree... but what it does do is increase your number of fans/followers/likes/etc. that then makes you seem a more credible entity, and thus gives you a bit of 'leg up' in gaining momentum with 'real' fans/followers/likes...

I agree. You have proven it true. However, I also agree with mark, likes may mean anything. In addition, haters also have to like to be able to comment. So just monitor what these likes bring you in the coming days.
