The Search Engine Journal has begun announcing the winners of this year's Blog Awards awards. There were in total 19 categories which ranged from the best conference coverage to the best SEO blog.
PageTraffic Blog had been nominated for two categories. See PageTraffic Blog Gets Two Nominations at Search Engine Journal Awards!:Vote For Us. We heartily thank all our readers who voted for us and they would be glad to know that we have ranked fairly well (6th) for both the categories we were nominated for, namely:
- Best SEO Blog of 2007
- Best Search Industry News Blog of 2007
The votes tally for this year has shown an interesting trend that it's not the quantity, rather it's the quality that matters. The tally shows that even though some blogs accumulated a greater numbers of votes their averages scores were not as good compared to the blogs which got lesser votes whose average score was higher.
And the award goes to…
Best SEO Blog of 2007: Search Engine Roundtable. SEOmoz and SEO Book followed as runners-up.
Best Search Industry News Blog of 2007: Search Engine Land. Search Engine Roundtable was ranked second and other good rankings came from Marketing Pilgrim, WebProNews and Search Engine Watch.
