Once again, I'll be judging entries, along with a great group that includes Michael Bonfils, Chris Boggs, Shari Thurow, and Marty Weintraub, last year's U.S. Search Personality of the Year (see all the 2013 winners here). Search Engine Watch is also a media partner of the event.
Having judged a pair of these award shows now, the key to success here is in the details. Make sure your entry is well-written – that it answers all the questions asked of you, and clearly highlights your most impressive metrics and outstanding achievements.
The U.S. Search Awards ceremony will take place at Treasure Island on Wednesday October 8. Tickets to the event are $225 per person or $2,000 for a table of 10.
