Best Linkbait of 2006 Nominations Open

SMS Text

Initially Search Engine Journal was going to include Best Linkbait as a category in our 2nd Annual Search Blogs Awards, but not all linkbait is done on a search blog.

In fact, some of the best linkbait of the year was outside of the searchosphere realm and made its way outside of the barrel (thanks to viral marketing, social optimization, and good ol’ press & public relations).’s Housewife Salary Calculations which came out on Mothers’ Day is a great example.

As for publisher oriented linkbait, who will forget Chris Hooley’s DrinkBait? Or the V7ndotcom Elursrebmem SEO contest?

So, as a follow up to the 2006 Search Blogs Awards Nominations and Awards (which are currently now up for voting), please take the time to nominate your favorite Linkbait campaigns of 2006 in the comment fields below.
