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. :)
