adAge Power 150 Blog - #8
As of Janaury 18th, 2008, the Search Engine Roundtable is listed number 9 of the top 150 adAge Power 150 marketing & media blogs on the Internet. In fact, we would be higher if our PageRank score was restored to a PR7, instead of it's current PR4 - but number 9 is still a great spot to be in, within the adAge Power 150.

Editor's Notes: We adore the unusual editorial tactic for the winning Blog in this category -- instead of linking to news sites, the authors comment on and link to the very best new threads on search marketing on discussion boards all over the Web. So, it's a true insiders-insider blog, and a reflection of what people are realy talking about (vs what the media thinks.)
