Last Call for Biggest Search Geek!

By February 6th, 2014

We have one week left to find the Biggest Search Geek, and competition has been fierce this year!

If you’re not familiar, Biggest Search Geek is a quiz contest that tests your SEM smarts. In our 6th year of competition, we’ve had over 3,500 entries from around the globe. Rich M from Australia is currently leading with a score of 75% correct, followed by Mihai P from UK/Europe, and Brian S from North America.

At the end of the competition, the person who answers the most questions correctly in the least amount of time will win a trip to SMX West, and their choice of an iPad, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One. Runners up and top 50 finishers will also receive prizes – including serious bragging rights!

We’ve had a lot of fun with this year’s contest – from wracking our brains for the toughest questions, to creating silly memes on our #whatshouldsearchmarketerscallme Tumblr. (Check it out!) And we look forward to presenting the winner their prize on stage at the SMX West opening session. (Also be sure to see our very own search geek and CMO, Matt Ackley, speak on Day 1 about what’s next for paid search in 2014.)

We hope you’ve had as much fun as we’ve had – and if you haven’t taken the quiz yet, make sure to do it soon! The contest ends on February 14 at 11:59pm PST.
