I have this awards page on the Search Engine Roundtable where I put the various awards the blog has one, and some select testimonials from those people in the search industry that have a name.
Tim Mayer, of Yahoo, the Vice President of Product Management at Yahoo! Search, just gave me a testimonial to use on the blog.
Search Engine Roundtable is one of the very few blogs I check several times each day for search industry news. Barry’s timely news posts and accurate, concise insight quickly keeps me up to speed on all things search. Whether you’re an SEO, SEM, search engine employee or just someone who follows search, I highly recommend you read Search Engine Roundtable.
Wow – thanks Tim!
More about Tim? Well, he is an old man, when it comes to search… A great bio is at PubCon:
Tim brings over 10 years of search experience to Yahoo! with previous roles at Overture, FAST Search & Transfer, Inktomi and Thomson Corp. Tim was previously Vice President of Web Search Products at Overture where he led the product direction of the web search product as well as managing the major web search affiliate partner relationships. Prior to Overture, Tim was Vice President and General Manager of the FAST Web Search division including the core search technology and the alltheweb.com search destination.
Before FAST, Tim spent two years leading product management and product marketing in the web search division at Inktomi. Before entering the web search area, Mayer worked at Thomson & Thomson as the project manager of the SAEGIS and NameStake search platforms.
Other testimonials I have are from Danny Sullivan (Search Engine Land), Brett Tabke (WebmasterWorld), Gary Price (Ask.com & ResourceShelf), Rand Fishkin (SEOmoz), and Andy Beal.
Who knows, maybe Matt Cutts of Google would give me a testimonial? Maybe?
