As a judge for this contest, I couldn’t wait to see who won. Andy Beal has just released the results and standings of winning entrants for the SEM Scholarship Contest, worth $10,000 in prizes and cash. The winner is Jeff Horsager who wrote an article called Increase Conversion Rates with the Google Website Optimizer?
I can vouch that deciding was tough because I was tough on the entries. Andy’s announcement includes how each article ranked as far as traffic and popularity as a result of marketing and promotion efforts. They were, however, voted on the basis of content alone. Judges were not given access to analysis data.
I’m proud to say that Cre8asiteforums has donated $100 cash to the winner from our ad revenue, in our continued committment to supporting education for search marketing.
