Nominate Best Search Forum

Jun 17, 2005 • 8:52 am | comments (15) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under SEO & SEM Forum News

In light of the MarketingSherpa awards, I thought it would be fitting for this site to hold a Search Engine Roundtable Best Search Forum 2005 Award. The first step is to nominate your favorite search forums. If there is enough of a response, then I will design a survey asking particulars about the nominated forums. The survey will be anonymous and work much like the MarketingSherpa survey. I will probably ask questions about forum style, friendliness, professionalism, homeyness and so on.

If you would like to nominate a forum, please either add a comment below or email

Nomination period will run until Monday, June 27th at 9am (EST).

Update: Please see named Best Search Forums Award - Continued...

SearchGuild :) Unique, friendly, lots of style, no sucking up, innovative, as home-from-home as you can get and loads of good professional stuff as well as the silly bits. /advert>

For so many reasons that is a cunning idea Barry. Nice One! I would nominate a forum but you are my channel to the foums so my nomination would be the same as yours.

There are so many good forums out there, each with its own slice of uniqueness. I would like to nominate Cre8asite Forums, because of all the booku's of briliant people over there making it a top-notch place to learn.

Well, let's put it this way - I don't think a single blog entry is really pushing the seriousness of the contest. :) You're basically just asking for an opnion, rathger than a formal voting process to take place. For what it's worth, I'm with SEW. :)

This is just the non formal nomination process. The voting process will be very professional.

Don't worry, Barry. There's plenty of interest, we're just all slow this week. I'm going to link on over, and hopefully you'll get some other noms.

JimWorld. The balance of what they tolerate and what they won't is very professional. I've secretly staked out a lot of forums and, seriously, many allow way too much and some are way too picky. Sometime annoying people have something to say, sometimes they really don't. I think the JimWorld people moonlight as college professors; they're very open-minded and equally as bright, and they can spot intelligent thought miles away hidden in the bushes. Also, of course, they're always right there when you need them and they will help you until you don't need helping, even if you're very new and very ... dense. Basically, they're all you need, in my opinion.

Hey, where do we vote? Can we do it survivor style, bocking people out? "SEO Chat - The tribal council has spoken. You have been eliminated". Would be well funny :)

I'd like to nominate

I have taken a shot at this - very unscientific, I admit, and prejudicial, but it may provide some ideas for your survey. I rank the forums by # of posts, to show where the action is.

I would like to nominate my favourite webmaster forum geekvillage,

I would like to nominate the controversial Black Hat Forums at - I am biased because i created them.
