2007topsearchmarketer.jpgMy good friend and Marketing Pilgrim contributor Gareth Davies of GSINC has put together a list of the Top 40 most influential people in search marketing for 2007, and he needs your help with the voting.

It’s not supposed to be an official poll–just some Christmas fun–and Gareth will donate $500 to the winner’s charity of choice.

The top 40–of which I’m flattered to be included–is made up some names you’ll likely recognize, including Neil Patel, Rand Fishkin, Danny Sullivan, Jill Whalen, and Christine Churchill.

And if you think Gareth has missed someone from the list, he wants to hear from you.

You have until December 31st to cast your vote for me your favorite search marketer.

  • Brian

    I am voting for Soulja Boy

  • Small Business Marketing

    I vote for Al Gore, he is the father of the Internet.

  • Brian Chappell

    @ Brian

    I looked for him on the list but for some odd reason he didn’t make it :-0

  • Zen

    Voted for you, Andy (do I deserve a link now?) 😛

  • Gareth D

    Hi Folks – if there is anyone you want to suggest for the ongoing people of search list there is a submit form at the bottom you can fill in. Al Gore might be pushing it for a search marketing resource though 😉

  • Futon-Matt

    Congrats on making the poll.


  • Andy Beal

    Thanks guys – it appears I’ve conditioned you all to expect links for good deeds. 😉

  • Syed Abbas

    Rand Fishkin Rocks ! He’s got my vote. Love, One of the greatest and fresh SEO resource out there.
