Thought you had enough of the greatest Internet Marketing posts of 2007? Well, unfortunately, your reading list has just lengthened. Matt McGee over at Small Business SEM has compiled his own list of the “best posts of 2007” in a site with a brilliantly and cleverly chosen title, the SEMMYS (Search Marketing Emmys). In addition to a bit over overlap from my previous post, Matt covers other categories pertinent to search marketing, including local search, search technology (e.g. robots.txt, IP questions for hosting, etc.), small business, analytics (he dedicates a whole section to this one!), rants, and funny posts about the search marketing industry in general.
I’m pleased to announce that I will be judging the category on Blogs and Blogging along with Michael Gray. Since I love blogs about blogging (really, I do!), this is the perfect match. (Thanks, Matt!)
I’m also pleasantly surprised to see that seven blog posts of mine on three blogs have somehow been nominated in six different categories. Here they are, in no particular order:
- Top 6 Ideas for Incredible Viral Content (Viral Marketing, posted here on Techipedia)
- How to Use StumbleUpon for Your Business: The Definitive Guide (Social Media, posted on the 10e20 Blog)
- Analytics on the Cheap: 6 Free Stats Package for the Startup or Small Business Owner (Analytics, posted on the 10e20 blog)
- Using Paid Search? Here’s How You Can Maximize the Impact of Your Ads (PPC, 10e20 blog)
- Online Publicity and Link Building: An Eric Ward Webcast (Link Building, 10e20 blog)
- Ethical Link Building Incentives (Link Building, posted on Search Engine Roundtable)
- Impact of Changing Registrar Data on Search Rankings (SEO, Search Engine Roundtable)
So while you’re reading these posts, I’d love to hear your feedback on your favorites, and I’d also like to thank Matt for arranging these awesome awards and for web developer David Mihm (the man behind the sleek SEMMYS web design) for creating such an appealing site. Seriously, it rocks.
It will be an exciting next few weeks while we — and then you — choose the best posts of the year.
