Brad Geddes Voted Most Influential Figure in SEM
I rarely like to brag, but prefer to just put out great content and let people make up their own mind about a someone’s influence and credibility.
This is probably the reason I really hate it when people call themselves an expert, guru, or master. To me, those labels only apply when another person or entity applies that label to you – it should never be self-given.
However, for this one occasion I do have to brag.
PPC Associates put together a 64 person bracket to vote for the most influential figure in SEM. The bracket included many heavyweights such as:
- Bill Gross (invented PPC)
- Larry Page (Google CEO)
- Danny Sullivan (Editor in Chief of Search Engine Land)
- Andrew Goodman
- Chris Sherman
- George Michie
- and way too many more great people for me to possibly list
Over the course of a few weeks, more than 46,000 votes were cast. In the end it came down Joe Kerschbaum (CEO of Clix Marketing) and myself.
And I’m happy, and a bit humbled to say, I won the entire tournament.
PPC Associates did a great job running the tournament and even made a video to capture some moments in the tourney:
Special thanks for David Rodnitzky for organizing everything.
