Every year these things run there’s more and more competition. I have to say, there are some really, really excellent blogs in these lists. Competition is fierce in the SEO category and some of the categories are no brainers.

Search Engine Journal Updates Design

I bumped into Loren Baker of Search Engine Journal in the press room here at SES Chicago and he mentioned something about updating the SEJ design. By the looks of the screen capture above, it’s a pretty nice upgrade. Loren mentioned that the design was by Chris Pearson, the same fellow who worked on SEOBook.com and Text Link Ads.

Nice job Chris and Loren!

T-Shirt Link Bait

Lee Odden on Mar 6th, 2006     Blogging, Link Building, SEO

The Search Engine Journal “Search Engine T-Shirt Contest” will be announcing winners soon. Be sure to check out the entries in the comments section of this post.

This contest is a good example of clever link bait. It also shows some of the creativity on the part of SEOs in the industry.

Spreadshirt is providing the shirts, RustyBrick is providing the design and the judges are listed here. I’d share some of my favorites, but since I’m judging, I’ll wait on that until after Loren announces the 10 winners.

SEJ Visits Google Japan

Lee Odden on Feb 23rd, 2006     Google, Marketing Industry News

Loren Baker of Search Engine Journal and John Scott of v7n recently took a tour of the Google offices in Japan. You can view photos here.

“Google Japan does have a similar feel to what Google offices are popular for : airy workspace, a pool table, well stocked snackroom, and those Google colored stabilizer balls you always see rolling around the Google offices.”

They were able to visit with Google reps and discuss everything from local search to censorship. A little on Matt Cutts too. Sounds like a great visit.

Loren will be covering the upcoming Search Engine Strategies conference that is coming to Tokyo, Japan April 20-21.
