Ed McMahon didn’t show up at my door or anything, actually I found out via a trackback from some splog that copied their site, but apparently five of my blog posts from 2007 are candidates for a "SEMMY" award. What’s are SEMMYs?
Well, SEMMYs are the brainchild of Matt McGee of Small Business SEM, who pulled together an all-star panel of judges to help with the project. I’ve been nominated in several categories, including "Best Rant." (Shocking, I know…)
Apparently there will be some kind of public voting, once the judges have named the finalists in each category. Unlike some of the other candidates, I am going to hold off on saying anything terribly offensive about Vanessa Fox being a really hot babe, but not as hot as Jennifer-With-The-Double-Entendre-Name, and stuff like that. Nope, I’m gonna behave myself. This isn’t the Beavis-n-Butthead blog.
Some folks have complained that the process for selecting candidates wasn’t fair, and that’s probably a fair assessment, since it doesn’t look like they had a whole lot of time to construct an elaborate double-blind public-nomination system. You can complain about anything. What I do know is that they put together a nice reading list for me, and for that I am grateful.
Think of it as the "Cliff’s Notes" version of the SEM blogosphere for 2007. If you’d like to read the posts that were nominated from this blog, here they are:
- How To Get More Pages Indexed With Nofollow (SEO)
- Google Proxy Hacking: How A Third Party Can Remove Your Site From Google SERPs (Google)
- Why Google Can’t Just "Dump" PageRank (Google)
- Mastering Both Kinds Of Link Building – Authority & Reputation (Link Building)
- Web 2.0 & SEO: Must We Piss In Every Public Fountain? (Rants)
That’s about half of my "serious" posts from 2007. Maybe I should write stuff more often.
