Industry News: SEOmoz Survey, Search & Social Awards Launched

Couple pieces of industry-related news to pass along: One is about an industry-wide survey and the other is about a new industry awards; both have just launched today.

First, SEOmoz has announced the 2010 SEO Industry Survey — an update of the industry survey they first did in 2008. There are questions about the types of services you provide, which services are more or less in demand now, your background and training in search marketing, what SEO and social strategies and tactics you use, and so forth.

You can take the survey here. It took me about 10 minutes to complete. You don’t have to reveal your identity, but you can provide an email address at the end if you want a chance to win an iPad or some other prizes. The survey will be open for one month.

Second, Search & Social has launched the 2010 Search & Social Awards, which are similar to the awards that Loren Baker used to run on Search Engine Journal. In these awards, you’ll be voting in categories such as Best SEO Blog, Best PPC Blog, Best Blog About Twitter, and even Best Hair in SEO (for real).

Voting is open until May 1st, so you only have about 10 days to vote. Plan on spending about 10 minutes here, too. Winners will be announced at the upcoming Search & Social Spring Summit in Tampa, Florida.

I should mention that Search Engine Land is nominated in the Best SEO Blog and Best Search News Blog categories. Our sister site, Sphinn is nominated in the Best Search Marketing Community category.
