Becoming SEO Famous: Neil Patel, YOUmoz, SEM Scholarship

Posted by Michael D Jensen on May 10th, 2007

SEO Famous

I’m obviously not the authority on SEO fame (if I was I’d be famous), but I wanted to write about a few opportunities that can help you to become famous, at least in SEO. First, Neil Patel from ProNet Advertising has started his own blog with a cute domain, It’s all about this topic, and he gives you experiences and tips on things that helped him and others to become well-known in the industry.

We all know SEOmoz, but do you know YOUmoz? YOUmoz is SEOmoz’ user generated content blog where you get to be featured on SEOmoz. If your post is good enough they’ll even move it onto the main page. That should attract some attention to you! I thought I’d try it out, so I posted a YOUmoz article on Google’s Next Move: Movie Screen Advertising. It’s an interesting post that I think any marketer or business person would find interesting. While you’re there… give it a thumbs up (if you like it, of course).

Andy Beal of Marketing Pilgrim created a scholarship for search engine marketers (SEM Scholarship) that gives anyone a chance to show off your SEM/SEO skills by writing an informative article and then getting it traffic. The winner from the first scholarship was Ben Wills and I know he received a lot more than just those prizes. The scholarship deadline is past now, but subscribe to Andy’s feed and you’ll be ready for the next contest when it comes along.

So, who wants to be SEO famous?
