blog2006winner.gif Thank you all for voting, we won the best blog award from MarketingSherpa in the category of Search Marketing. We actually did not win by popular vote, we "were second-highest. However, they did nail the highest percent of "Excellent" ratings -- vs 'Not Bad' and 'Blah,' and that's what matters." Honestly, I was hoping we would compete against Search Engine Watch (a blog I write at), Threadwatch, Matt Cutts and other more well-known in the category. I suspect we would not have won if some of those blogs were in the running.

It is still a huge honor to take the win for "Best Blog on Search Marketing."

Search Engine Roundtable
Bloggers include: Barry Schwartz, Benjamin Pfeiffer, Chris Boggs, Kim Krause, Shawn Hogan, Ignacio Hernandez, Morgan Carey, & Dan Thies

Sherpa Note: This is the second year in a row for this group Weblog to win the Search category. Notably, the voting for the entire category as a whole was fairly even (aside from one obvious ballot stuffer). The guys did not get the highest total votes, they were second-highest. However, they did nail the highest percent of "Excellent" ratings -- vs 'Not Bad' and 'Blah,' and that's what matters.

I just updated the post to attach the winners logo, and I hear they are sending me another mug. :)

Congratulations! :-) Search Engine Roundtable has been my favorite SEM blog for a while now and I don't see that changing - keep it up!

Hum. Think we should tell someone there that I am not a guy? :) "The guys did not get the highest total votes, they were second-highest."

Well deserved award for all of you! This 'ballot stuffer' allegation sounds interesting though - could only happen in the SEO Blog category I guess ;)

Congrats :D

Congratulations. You're the only search engine blog I read every day--much more hands-on information without clutter or industry blather that the average site owner doesn't care about and excellent culling of the important stuff from WebmasterWorld and other forums. Well-deserved award.

Guys and Gals, Thanks so much. I could not have done it with the support from the other authors and you readers. It means a ton to have won this award. Thanks again!

Congratulations! You would have won even if you had competed against those blogs mentioned.
