The Hard Truth – We Are Women in SEO

Our extraordinary Top SEO Women list has been one of the most visited posts in the history of Top SEO Women, with over 2700 unique views. From a marketing standpoint, it's great publicity for the nominees, wouldn't you think? I thought so, which is one of the main reasons I started this thing in the first place – to give my fellow SEO women more publicity.
