Why Jim Boykin and The Linkspiel Rock!

7 Jan

Well, that’s because both Jim Boykin and Debra Mastaler’s The Link Spiel won a Search Blog Award in the Link Building category. Congratulations to both! I can’t think of a better result than these two finishing in first place together, because I’ve been reading both blogs since the moment I started to read about SEO.

While Search Engine Journal already covered the overall results, here’s the list of all the nominees in the Link Building category with their final scores:
1. Jim Boykin (3.2)
2. The Link Spiel (3.2)
3. Wiep.net (3.04)
4. Eric Ward (2.99)
5. Martinibuster (2.92)
6. Justilien (2.87)
7. LinkJuicy (2.77)
8. Link Building Blog (2.62)

Although I am really amazed, impressed and delighted at the same time to see that -if you look at the averages- I finished third, I think that the results are a bit biased because of the way of voting. I’m sure that this was a bit unclear for at least some folks (although Loren explained it crystal clear). I also think it’s impossible to believe that 25% thinks Eric Ward’s blog only deserved a single point. Nevertheless, I’m still honored that my six month old blog was nominated for such an award in the first place :)
