It’s that time of year again – the annual SEMMY awards. In case you are unsure of what a SEMMY is, the phrase is coined of course from the television Emmy awards and is an annual online awards event started in 2008 to honor the great content produced across the search and online marketing industry.
I happy to announce that a post I wrote last April on managing your online reputation with Twitter has been nominated in the Reputation Management category. Our post is competing with 7 other nominees.
The first process, which is decided by volunteer judges Rand Fishkin and Chris Winfield, is to determine 3-4 finalists . After this, the category is open to public voting which will ultimately determine the winner.
So, if our post does make it into the finals and you think it is worthy of a SEMMY, please plan on revisiting the site once the public voting process has begun. If all goes well, that should occur next Wednesday, January 20th.
In the meantime if you want to know how to manage what people are saying about you or your company online, be sure to check out Using Twitter To Manage Online Brand Reputation.
