    They all deserve the award. I voted for Local SEO Guide.

  • David Mihm, Small Biz Website Designer

    Both Matt & Mike Blumenthal consistently put out thoughtful, and actionable content, whereas some of the others like Screenwerk and Kelsey Group are more “news” or “industry” oriented.

    Naturally, as an SEO rather than an analyst, I much prefer the former. Well-deserved win, Matt! Congrats to all of the nominees.
