SEO by the SEA : Best Search Engine Research Blog of 2007

SMS Text

While some of us are writing about Sugar Ray singing at Yahoo or Google founders swimming in the Atlantic, others are deep into their bookmarks and databases, analyzing patents, algorithmic trends and obscure search technologies … giving us all a glimpse of things to come in the future of search engines.

Nominees for the Best Search Engine Research Blog of 2007 were :

And the winner is…. SEO by the SEA!!

Bill Slawski’s endless research on search engine patent filings has unearthed some intriguing plans by all of the search companies and brought reason to projects like Google Universal, Personalized Search or Yahoo Paid Inclusion.

Instead of being reactive to the changes in search, Bill’s patent filing coverage helps us become more proactive, analyzing the trends which may happen, and preparing for them. Thank you Bill for all of your hard work, and to all of the nominees in this category.

    Bill and his writings are very worthy of this award. Thanks for all the research Bill, congrats!

  • Bill

    Thank you Loren, and thanks to everyone who voted for SEO by the Sea.

    I love going through the patents and white papers, and getting some hints at what the future might bring us, and even more getting a little insight into the thoughts and ideas that might help shape what we see at the search engines.

    It’s great being able to share that information, and to, as Loren notes, become a little more proactive rather than reactive.

    The other nominees in this area are ones to subscribe to if you haven’t already, and to watch. It’s an honor to have been included with them.

    Thanks, again.

    Congratulations Bill!

  • Christina Niven

    What can one say to really thank Bill enough? I can’t imagine anyone enjoying the grind of going through those patents–which is why we are all lucky to have such a nice guy do our grownup reading for us. Not only does he do the heavy lifting, he is one blogger who always responds to comments, and in the most considerate manner possible. If you’ve never left a comment on Seo by the Sea, go do it now and you’ll see what I mean.

    Thanks Chris, Linda, and Christina.

    I do consider myself fortunate to be amongst the group of folks who were nominated for this award, and the many folks who do wonderful jobs of researching search related issues in depth who weren’t.

  • Ken Teegardin

    SEO by the Sea definitely deserves the credit. The amount of detail in Bill’s post is amazing. Pure Gold.

    Congratulations Bill, and i hope you will be the next winner for 2008 awards. But i have a suggestion for you that yet search engine not cache the duplicate content but you have to allowed the copying of content with live link of post. So that all the peoples come to know about you.
