SES Awards 2008

Since 1999 Search Engine Strategies (SES) has been the leading international conference series for webmasters, digital agencies, online marketers and corporate decision makers. Over the years, SES has guided search marketers of all skill levels through the fast changing and complex world of search — the single fastest growing marketing sector. In celebration of the event's 10-year anniversary, SES San Jose 2008 will incorporate the first annual SES Awards.

The mission of the SES Awards is to inspire innovation and encourage new ideas. The SES Awards honor 15 outstanding search marketers and will be judged by a panel of industry experts and the SES Awards editorial staff.
