I rarely write about the search marketing industry here, focusing mostly instead upon search-related patents and papers, and an occasional 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 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 deciding who the finalist was 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 some many other blogs and bloggers should be included amongst those listed in the many categories.
