    I reckon Barry has been cheated!

    Average score for SER is 3.61 with more votes compared to SEL at 3.43.

    I demand a recount…


  • Barry Schwartz

    I did not cheat.

  • Barry Schwartz


    You said, I was cheated.

    No… SEL deserves this award more than SER. Much more.

  • Alfred Rovington

    All very noble but if you’re going to give out awards based on reader votes then surely you should honour those readers. Otherwise you are devaluing their input… You might as well just make an editorial judgement.

    SER scores a higher average vote than SEL (from a similar number of votes) and therefore wins.

    My heartiest congrats to Danny and SEL team!

    congrats to SEL, I think Sphinn is one of the best things that happened to Online Marketers, so props on that also. Consolidated all the good cool news in one place.

    Loren elaborated how is going to count votes at this post from yesterday. I also suggested a different metrics, but he decided for his. It’s not an easy to solve dilemma, but once you decide for one way of measuring, you have to stick to it.

    Oh and congrats to Danny and his team of writers over at SEL. It’s deserved, I don;t believe that anybody would doubt that. ūüôā
