9 SEO Tips for Attractive Search Engine Friendly Web Design

by Justin Briggs

Congratulations to Justin who led our five finalists with six votes from our panel of expert judges. While not the most trafficked entry, Justin took search-friendly web design to a new level and impressed our judges. Some of their comments include:

He has a nice keyword laden title, has links and diagrams, breaks it the content so it breathes and wrote with an air of authority and working knowledge.  He also scored points with me for responding to comments in a respectful manner.

…useful information! I especially like the illustration near the top.

I like the graphics and it’s mostly solid information…

…it’s really good content, well written and actionable advice.

Justin walks off with one of our biggest prize packages in the history of the contest–including tickets to both SMX East and Pubcon!

Let’s not forget to thank our fantastic finalists and everyone that took the time to enter the contest. Thank you!

Lastly, my heartfelt thanks to all of our fabulous judges for donating their time and also thanks to our prize sponsors. Without your support, this contest wouldn’t exist!

See you next year!
