Vote for the 2006 Search Blogs Awards!

SMS Text

Voting for the Search Engine Journal’s 2006 Search Blogs Awards are now open.

Please take the time to rank and vote for your favorite search engine blogs and bloggers!

Vote Now!

In most of the categories, we ask voters to rank the Search Blogs which you read from 1-5, 5 being the best. One other category is voting for one entry. One is a write in.

Voting will be open until December 24th. On Christmas Eve we will close the voting and announce the winners after the holiday season is over.

We will also be issuing some Search Blog Achievement Awards to blogs and bloggers who we feel are special and do not fit in one certain category.

Here is a list for the nominated blogs in each category. Blogs were nominated over the past week by Search Engine Journal readers ((I’ll be adding in the links to these blogs over the next few hours).
