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.
It is the end of the year which typically brings out many online contests that look to define the best of the best, whether that involve products, technology, blogs or something else. One such contest is Search Engine Journal’s Search Blogs Awards of 2007 which aims to define the best blogs in a variety of categories. There are 18 categories in this year’s contest, one of which is the “Best SEO Blog of 2007.” This blog (SearchRank Blog) has won a nomination for that category. In fact, we are among 11 other blogs competing for the best SEO blog of 2007.
Earlier this month, Mike Blumenthal put decided to put together an awards contest to find the funniest search engine marketing posts of 2007. Our post, “10 Signs That You May Be a Blog Addict,” published in April of this year made the initial nomination list and now has made its way into the top ten.
Time to vote for your favorite blogs and bloggers related to search and Internet marketing. Loren baker has assembled the voting after compiling favorites from comments on an earlier post. The SearchRank Blog was nominated under the SEO Blog of the year category. Wow – what an honor! Thanks to those who nominated us. Voting is open now and runs thru December 24th after which it will be closed. Good luck to all who were nominated. There is certainly no lack of quality content being produced on a variety of blogs in our industry.
