SMX Search Bowl: Nominate Search Marketers To Take On Search Engines In Quiz!

SMX West - Santa Clara, CA February 26-28th, 2008For years, a conference idea banging around has been a trivia quiz involving the search engines. For our SMX West search marketing conference this Feb. 26-28 in California, we’ve got it happening! SMX Search Bowl will have teams from Ask, Google, and Microsoft competing against each other to test their knowledge of search and search marketing. I’m pretty sure Yahoo will be stepping up to take part, as well. The fifth team is being assembled right now. We’re taking nominations for search marketers to be on that team to take on the search engines, so please help out!

Rand and his team at SEOmoz kindly stepped up to take on the challenge of compiling the nominations. It’s pretty easy. Just go to his post about the process here and leave the name of someone you’d like to see as part of the team. Sure, you can nominate yourself. No, don’t nominate me, as I get to have fun as the quizmaster. Leave off nominating employees of the search companies or those from Search Engine Land or SEOmoz.

If a person gets two nominations, they’ll be on the short list for the voting process. Yes, you can second yourself! Two people will be selected to form a team. These will be for people who are agreeing to go to the show, of course. If they don’t already have a ticket (having purchased one or because they are a speaker), they’ll get one of our networking passes that give anyone access to SMX Search Bowl, as well as the "Tailgate Party" beforehand, lunches, and other networking activities.

You’ve got through January 28th to nominate people, so get moving. As for SMX West, check out some of the past posts and information below for more about it:
