Search Marketing Blog Awards Announced

Lee Odden on Jan 7th, 2008     Blogging, Marketing Industry News, Online Marketing

Updated! See Below:

Search Engine Journal began announcing the winners of it’s 3rd Annual Search Engine Marketing Blog Awards today. Voting covered 19 different categories ranging from best conference coverage to best SEO blog. With that many categories, I’d be surprised if Loren posted them all in one day. It’s great link bait with this post as a testament. TopRank Blog was nominated in 4 categories which have yet to be announced.

The votes tally was interesting as quantity is not what wins, but quality. In other words, some blogs received far more votes than others, but their average score was lower than those blogs getting lesser votes with a higher average. This should be a consideration for participants next year to guide the way they contact their networks to draw attention to the voting. Congrats to all! I’ll keep a running tally of winners and runners up below as they are announced:

Loren Baker’s Search Engine Journal has recently taken nominations for best search marketing blogs in a variety of categories. I am happy to say TopRank’s blog, aka “Online Marketing Blog” has been nominated in 4 of the 19 categories.

Thank you to friends and readers of Online Marketing Blog for nominating us! You can now vote for TopRank’s blog (5 for best!) in the following categories:

  • Best Search Conference Coverage – Category #16
    As an official media sponsor for blog coverage of: SES, ClickZ, SMX, Pubcon, SIS and eMetrics plus 14 search, PR and marketing conferences blogged in 2007, TopRank’s Online Marketing Blog is against exceptionally tough competition but we hope the work our team has put into providing coverage of sessions, photos, videos, after conference parties and interviews was helpful enough to rate a 5. :)

It’s here. It’s finally here. The last BIGLIST seo blog reviews post of 2007. In all, we’ve reviewed over 700 SEO, PPC and Social Media Marketing blogs with only 400 or remaining. Who made this final BIGLIST post of the year? Read on:

  • Digerati Marketing - UK based Mark Cook uses a blog as his company website and writes about all aspects of marketing online ranging from viral marketing to search engine optimisation (yeah, with an “s”) and some white/black hat for good measure.
  • Stomper Blog – A new blog from Andy Jenkins and the team at StomperNet starts with a bang using entertaining and clever SEO tips on video packaged as “Going Natural 2.0″. It’s a straightforward strategy, albeit very nicely packaged, of giving away content as part of their efforts to promote Stomper Scrutinizer software.

BIGLIST Search Marketing Blogs Update 113007

The BIGLIST had some BIG changes this week dear readers. Our list manager went to work checking each link and each blog for post recency and 70 blogs didn’t make the cut. Ouch! We’re not strict, just make sure you post at least once every 2 weeks and the posts are mostly about marketing online or your blog will be removed from the BIGLIST.

Dropped and want to get back on? Start posting first. Then you know the drill: Links get noticed, Technorati favorites get noticed, Twitter followers get noticed. Plus if you do something special on Sphinn, StumbleUpon or on one of the blogs that’s already in, you could certainly let it happen organically.

With our U.S. readers recovering from heavy doses of tryptophan from yesterday’s turkey-fest, we wanted to offer up another sparky update on the BIGLIST of search marketing blogs.

In the past we’ve written about ways to get on the BIGLIST either as a result of us finding new blogs in the wild or noticing blogs linking to us.

To change things up a bit, another way blogs that cover SEO, PPC or social media marketing might consider hitting our radar is to either mark Online Marketing Blog as a Technorati favorite and/or following the weekly BIGLIST updates on Twitter.

This week’s update includes a collection of mostly new blogs covering that familiar territory of SEO and social media with some great representation from our neighbors to the North. Enjoy!

With Danny Sullivan’s categorization of the Search Engine Land blogroll, it really drove home the need to do the same with our BIGLIST of SEO blogs. The current alphabetization has worked for the first few hundred blogs, but now were near 500 overall. Unfortunately, it’s a very, busy time at TopRank right now so while a categorization of the BIGLIST is in the queue, it will likely be first quarter 2008 before we can get it rearranged.

If there are any brave souls who would like to attempt such a feat (categorizing BIGLIST), I would be happy to give you credit at the top of the list. Just email blog at toprankresults dot com.

Now on to this week’s update:
