Search Engine Roundtable : Best SEO Blog of 2007

SMS Text

Another year, another blog voted Best SEO Blog by Search Engine Journal’s readers. In 2005, Matt Cutts took away the award. In 2006, SEOmoz.

Search Engine Roundtable

For 2007, Search Engine Roundtable‘s team of Barry Schwartz and Tamar Weinberg continuously bring excellent coverage of SEO and webmaster issues as discussed in the various search marketing forums that they cover. Additional authors to the blog include Kim Krause-Berg, Robert Kerry, Carolyn Shelby, Chris Boggs and Benjamin Pfeiffer.

This team is not as prevalent on the blog on an ongoing basis, but do an impeccable job covering the search marketing conferences, acting as messagers, bringing the good word from the session panels to those who cannot attend.

Search Engine Roundtable does an excellent job of covering SEO, SEM and Contextual Publishing : but for timely SEO information and early bird coverage, it’s tops and with honor we name them Best SEO Blog of 2007.

SEOmoz & SEOBook

SEOmoz and SEO Book tied for second place in this category, with SEOmoz bringing in more total votes than Search Engine Roundtable, but an overall lower grade (50.8% of their voters rated them above average while 57.3% of SER’s rated them a 4 or 5).

SEO Book also had more overall voters than Search Engine Roundtable, but 52.7% of their voters rating them a 4 or 5.

Wolf Howl & SEO by the SEA

Michael Gray’s Wolf-Howl and Bill Slawski’s SEO by the SEA both had the most amount of voters rating them as a 4, and both broke 40% rating above average.

When we first started these awards in 2005, SEO by the SEA had just went live and we threw them into the mix because of Bill’s rep and the quality of the posts. It’s a positive sign to see that in a couple of years, two independent blogs written by one person and not a team (SEO Book also belongs in this grouping) have competed so well.

    Congrats to SERoundtable!

    Way to go guys…

    Congrats, Barry! SERoundtable is certainly on my daily must-read list.

    We’ve clearly got a lot of work to do – to go from Best SEO Blog of 2006 to having more than 1 in 5 voters give us the lowest possible rating is pretty tough. Hopefully we can redouble our efforts and work even harder in 2008 to provide quality content.

    Thought SEOmoz would have nicked it, but it would have been very tough to call 🙂

    This site is basically a classified with a revenue model of google.
    Technically or functionally this site of mine http://www.localhaat.com seems ok but due to poor marketing it has not taken off.

    Please help
