I am happy to congratulate our very talented blogmaster and SEO designer, Thomas McMahon for being selected by the Web Marketing Association as a judge for the 2006 WebAwards competition! This is impressive as employees from companies ranging from Disney to Organic to Warner Brothers have participated as judges for this program over the past 10 years.
You can be sure Thomas will bring a very unique perspective to his judging with his deep web design, SEO and blog experience. In fact, there is a new category for blogs this year. Maybe next year they can add a category for search marketing web sites!
The Web Marketing Association’s call for entries will continue until May 31 and winners will be announced September 20th, 2006. To see the kinds of prominent agencies and corporations that are involved, here’s a list of WebAward winners from 2005.
Getting awards for your web site used to be a popular traffic and link building tactic in the late nineties up until 2002 or so until everyone started doing it. Now online web awards have have pretty much all died out except for 2 or three of the most prominent and credible programs. WebAwards is one of those few programs.
If you and/or your clients have a great web site or blog, visit the WebAward.org site and enter. It could be a great online and offline promotion opportunity.
