Interesting article about SEMPO. Since I was just nominated for a spot on the SEMPO board, I think it’s time I start making my views known. There’s nothing worse than voting for someone who’s stand you don’t know.

As SEMPO, the Search Engine Marketing Professional Organization, embarks on its fifth year of existence, the group is growing into a mature, global organization.
So, any SEMPO member who would like to know more about me, just ask. You can e-mail me from the links in this blog or you can leave a comment. I don’t moderate comments (unless it becomes necessary for obvious reasons) so fire away. Over the next couple of days I’ll talk about some issues that I think SEMPO should be dealing with and I’ll try to lay our my qualifications. But first, I invite you to read Kevin Newcomb’s article from Search Engine Watch and leave any comments. I would especially like to hear comments on the new SEMPO Institute. Is this a valid substitute for an industry wide certification, or merely a building block to acheive the goal of certification? It isn’t any suprise to anyone who has talked to me lately that I feel certification is a key to moving this industry forward. I know it will be a tough road to ho, but it must be done sooner rather than later. Let me know what you think.
