Are You A Search Geek? You Could Win A Trip To SMX West 2011

It’s that time of year again—and we don’t mean the holidays, NORAD Santa, or egg nog. No, it’s the official opening of the Third Annual Biggest Search Geek Contest sponsored by Marin Software. Grand prize is an Apple iPad plus a trip for two to the upcoming search marketing conference in San Jose, CA, March 8-10, 2011.

For the first time, this year’s contest is open to UK residents.

The quiz tests your Search IQ with 20 questions about all aspects of search marketing, including paid, organic, and the occasional history question such as this one from last year’s quiz: What was the name of Larry Page and Sergey Brin’s 1996 research project that laid the foundation for Google’s search engine?*

The winner must answer the most questions in the shortest amount of time. Grand Prize is an iPad plus a free trip for two to SMX West in San Jose, California, March 8-10 2011. The prize includes round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations, and two All Access Conference passes to SMX West 2011. The winner will also receive an award on stage from SMX West chair and Search Engine Land editor-in-chief Danny Sullivan, and will gain national recognition as the Biggest Search Geek for 2011.

Feel like you’ve got what it takes? Then head on over to the Biggest Search Geek Contest sponsored by Marin Software and get going—we’ll see you at SMX West in March!

    Ironic, even though you’re giving away iPads … The quiz isn’t compatible with ipads
