SEJ Blog Awards 2007Search Engine Journal has finally finished posting all the awards for the best search blogs of 2007. We are very proud and appreciative that we won two of the five categories we were up for nomination for. We won for one of the most prestigious awards offered, the Best SEO Blog Award and for our hard work in conference coverage with the Best Search Conference Coverage Award.

I am also personally extremely delighted Search Engine Land won three awards, being part of the Search Engine Land team - it matters to me. Search Engine Land won the Best Search News Award (very important to me, since I am the News Editor), the Best Search Marketing Blog and Sphinn won Best Search Marketing Community/Forum Award.

I thought I comment specifically about each of the two awards the Search Engine Roundtable won.

Best SEO Blog of 2007 Award: Finding new nuggets of SEO advice each day for the past five years has not necessarily been an easy task to do. But with the aid of the community from the forums we cover, it has not only been hard but it actually is a lot of fun. Like I have said time and time again, it is the community that makes up this site and our content - so the community deserves this award.

Each day, I research several search marketing forums looking for unique SEO topics to write about. With the help of Tamar Weinberg, Ben Pfeiffer, Chris Boggs and Kim Krause - we are able to bring these threads to you in a concise, readable and tactical format. It is an honor to win this prestigious award, the best SEO blog of 2007.

Loren Baker, of Search Engine Journal, said:

For 2007, Search Engine Roundtable’s team of Barry Schwartz and Tamar Weinberg continuously bring excellent coverage of SEO and webmaster issues as discussed in the various search marketing forums that they cover. Additional authors to the blog include Kim Krause-Berg, Robert Kerry, Carolyn Shelby, Chris Boggs and Benjamin Pfeiffer.

Best Search Conference Coverage of 2007 Award: We basically invented search conference live blogging, starting back in 2003 with SES Chicago. Since then, we have covered 30 search conferences, consisting of over 1,000 sessions. But we still had steep competition from the likes of Lisa's team at Bruce Clay's Blog (very worried about them), AIMClear, DD and of course, TopRank - all of them deserve this award as much as we do. But the award really goes not just to the Search Engine Roundtable, Bruce Clay, AIM Clear, David Dalka and Lee Odden but mostly to the writers, the people who lose feeling in their finger tips while typing lightening speed.

Those people include (and I can't thank them enough), cshel, Li Evans, Rob Kerry, Marty, DaveR, Justin Davy, Avi Wilensky, Debra, Steve Krull, Lee Odden, Tamar, David Wallace, Chris Boggs, Ben P., Lisa Barone, Dazzilin Donna, Kim Krause and so many more.

With the most votes and the highest ratings, Search Engine Roundtable took this category to school! Thanks to the SER crew, and all bloggers who cover the search, publishing and advertising conferences .. you keep us tuned in when we cannot leave our desks.

I figured I end off this thank you by linking to each award and also the discussion on that award at Sphinn (since they won). Thank you again and as always, forum discussion at...

Thank you all and congrats to all the winners, nominees and to having such a tight industry!
