And the winner is….

I rarely write about the search marketing industry here, focusing mostly instead upon search related patents and papers, and an occassional event. There are some happenings and posts that I do want to point out though.

I was asked to be a judge in the semi-finals of 2007 Rubber Chicken Award for Humor in the SEM industry, and the winner is chosen by you as the voters. There were some very funny posts made over the course of the year, and unfortunately only 10 finalists were chosen amongst those nominated. I think the winners are the folks who get to read all ten, and I’d like to thank all the nominees for making the decision of who the finalist were so difficult.

Search Engine Journal is holding its third annual awards, the Search Blogs Awards of 2007, and I would like to thank the many folks who nominated SEO by the Sea in a couple of categories, and me in another. SEO by the Sea was nominated for:

Best SEO Blog of 2007
Best Search Engine Research Blog

I was nominated for “Most Giving Search Blogger,” though I have to say that I don’t know how that is defined. I do know that I’m surrounded in the category by a great bunch of folks, whom I respect and admire.

It was an honor to be included as a nominee amongst so many fine sites and bloggers, and I think that there are many other blogs and bloggers who should be included amongst those listed in the many categories.

  1. Congrats there B, glad yer having some ‘fun’. I was looking for the ‘Cranky Ranter’ category and just couldn’t find one anywhere. Like yourself I tend to veer away from the ‘regurgitated’ news stories that make the rounds in the Blog-o-Shere and as such likely have a more segmented readership. On that note, it seems we both covered the awards season (my own skewed approach as always). Though I have been reading SBS since aught-six this year was particularly enjoyable as we got to play together now and again.

    Needless to say you have my Vote in the often droll world of technical search, but it is nice to see more and more blogs that delve into the stickier areas. I look forward to more of the same in 2008. There was plenty to work with this year and next should be just as exciting.

    Thanks for all the late night fun!

  2. Hey, Dave.

    Thanks. Not having a Cranky Ranter category was a major oversight in my book. Nice awards coverage, and congrats on the Rubber Chicken Award nomination and finalist status.

    Thanks for the vote! It is good to see that there are more people jumping into more technical aspects of search.

    A toast, to a fine 2008.
