Nominate a red crab in the 2007 Search Blog Awards!

Nominate the red SEO crabToday Loren asked for selfish nominations, thus everybody posts a call for action.
So did I:

• Best search related pamphlets
I hereby selfishly submit my blog.

To no avail:

Sebastian, we’re not going to have a category for Best Pamphlets, but good try :)

There’s no such thing as a Best Crabby Search Pamphlets category just because my blog would be the sole candidate? Ok, I understand that. Really. I didn’t even swear. Yet.

So here’s my call for action. Nominate your favorite blog (that’s mine of course!) in any of the following categories that match:

  • Best SEO Blog
    You’d expect more marketing stuff from an SEO blog.
  • Best SEM Blog
    You’d expect even more marketing stuff, as well as PPC and whatnot. I suck on both.
  • Best SEO Plugin for Wordpress
    I never wrote a WordPress plugin. Actually, this year I hate WordPress because they messed up the database structure in version 2.3 without providing any documentation or at least a reasonable migration procedure. Also their coding standards suck ass and make me puke whenever I see WordPress code.
  • Best Search Agency Resource Blog
    My employers don’t blog.
  • Best Link Building Blog
    Link building pamphlets are rare nowadays.
  • Best Social Media Marketing or Optimization Blog
    I don’t game social media.
  • Best Local Search Blog
    I’m happy when I find my shoes before I leave the house, hence I can’t give any advice on local search.
  • Best Video Search Blog
    I watch x-rated videos only. Probably posting geeky clips doesn’t qualify me.
  • Best Mobile Search Blog
    When I’m on the road I usually search until I give up and ask a cabby for an escort. Cheating this way makes sure I’m not always too late, but doesn’t qualify me for mobile search consultancy.
  • Best Google Blog Not Owned by Google
    I’m not in Google news.
  • Best Search Engine Corporate Blog (owned by the search engines)
    Although I’ve developed a tiny search engine years ago, I fear that smutty results don’t count.
  • Best Contextual Advertising Blog
    My organic traffic is cheaper, and probably as reliable as PPC campaigns.
  • Best Affiliate Marketing Blog
    I sold two Seobook subscriptions recently, does that count?
  • Best Search Engine Community/Forum
    I visit Sphinn and the Google Webmaster forum and never will launch a new forum again.
  • Best New Search Engine of 2007
    See above.
  • Best Search Engine Research Blog
    I revealed that Microsoft plans to relaunch Live Search as porn affiliate program, why eBay and Wikipedia rule Google’s SERPs, and more SEO research like that.
  • Best Search Linkbait of 2007
    When I try it, folks bury it.
  • Breakout Blog of 2007
    I’m blogging since 2005 but moved my blog away from blogspot this year.
  • Best Search Conference Coverage of 2007
    I don’t even attend conferences.
  • Best Search Conference Coverage in Photos
    See above.
  • Best Search Marketing Facebook Group
    Facebook killed my account for spamming or so.
  • Most Giving Search Blogger
    I can’t give away a fraction of Bill Slawski’s great insights.
  • Best Independent Search Blog (not owned by media company or marketing agency)
    What does that mean? Ok, I’m in.
  • Best Search Blog Post of 2007
    I wrote a dull book on redirects, and more.

Oh well. Instead of nominating my stuff better convince Search Engine Journal that they really need a Crabby Pamphlets Category. Or try Category #16 at Performancing.

Update December/28/2007: YAY! Thank you all! Now you can vote for my pamphlets in the “Best SEO Blog of 2007″ category at the SEJ Search Blog Award 2007 contest. Here are the candidates:

It truly is an honor just to be nominated together with these great SEO bloggers.

    I nominate you for best Sui Generis Search blog. That’s a fancy legal term I learned that means ‘one-of-a-kind’ and I think it encompasses the whole crab/pamphlet/coding thing well. I mean, I just referred a prospective client to you for info on 301ing an old forum to their new one ;). If not, then best Technical search blog.

    Gab, thank you for the kind nomination and the referral. :)

  3. Thanks for all the ego food! on 9 January, 2008  #link
