Time to vote – for your SEO personality of 2012

by Peter Young on December 12, 2012 · 58 comments

About a month ago we asked for your nominations for the SEO personality of the year, a festive competition we ran back in 2011. Following a huge volume of nominations we have wittled that list down to a list of 40 European based SEO’s. Our previous winner Sean Anderson is just one of the list, but other well known SEO’s such as Bas Van Den Beld, Martin Mcdonald and Joost de Valk are joined by new nominees such as Adrian Land (from Mydestination Info), Nick Garner and Aleyda Solis.

We are leaving this form open until Thursday the 20th of December and will announce the winner on the 21st of December this year.

This is tough, but James Agate was the first person in this industry that I really built a connection with, so this year I’m voting for him, for his top notch blogs, his advice and his general all-round good guy-ness.
