The nomination period for the Search Engine Watch Awards has now closed. The final round of voting will begin March 22 or 23. Anyone subscribed to one of Search Engine Watch's newsletters will receive instructions via email on how to vote. We expect to announce the winners by February 6 or earlier.

The 5th Annual Search Engine Watch Awards will recognize the best in search during 2004. Reader votes greatly help Search Engine Watch's editors in deciding which search engines deserve to win.

Search Engine Watch members have a special role in the awards. They can nominate search engines to be put forward before all Search Engine Watch newsletter readers during the final round of voting.

Ready to make your voice heard? Then nominate search engines for each category using the form below. This nomination round of voting will be open to Search Engine Watch members from March 15 through March 18.

After the nominees have been determined, the final round of voting will occur from March 22 through March 25. Anyone subscribed to one of Search Engine Watch's newsletters will receive instructions via email on how to vote. We expect to announce the winners by March 31 or earlier.

You can learn more about the awards and see last year's winners in the Search Engine Watch Awards area of the site.

Voting Instructions & Form

To vote, use the drop-down boxes to pick up to three search engines that you think should be finalists in each category. If you only have one or two favorites, then just vote for them and leave the extra box or boxes unselected.

If you don't see your choice or choices in the drop-down boxes, then use the write-in box to nominate them. Optionally, you can also offer comments as to why you like the services you've listed.

Remember, we're looking for the best in 2004. Consider how your favorites have done over all of last year, rather than any developments in the past few weeks.

NOTE: If you are an employee of a search engine company, we ask that you not vote for yourself
