What are The SEMMYS? From the site:
The SEMMYS are an annual awards event honoring the great content produced across the search and online marketing industry, initiated by Matt McGee.
Search Engine Marketing (SEM) has grown to include a variety of disciplines, including blogging, social media, reputation management, and much more. The SEMMYS attempt to include all these elements into one awards event.
I am definitely honoured that my article is one of the 44 nominees in the SEO category, which include articles from people like Aaron Wall (SEO Book), Vanessa Fox (ex-Google), Lee Odden (TopRank) and Joost de Valk himself.
How will the winners be chosen?
A selected jury of SEO experts will choose the finalists (3-6), which will be announced at SEMMYS.org.
At that point, you will be able to vote for a winner in each/any category. Public voting will be open for one week. When public voting ends, the winners will be announced on SEMMYS.org!
- January 19, 2009: Official Launch
- January 26: Judges’ deadline to decide category finalists
- January 28: Finalists announced; public voting begins
- February 2: Public voting closes
- February 4: Winners announced
With all these great articles I’m proud already to be nominated for a SEMMY! Of course it would be great to get to the final, but we’ll know this by January 28th. Stay tuned!
