 A message fromBenjamin Yoskovitz from Standout Jobs

MONTREAL, (RUSHPRNEWS) 05/30/2008 -A few days ago we received some very cool news — we’ve won an award! Specifically, we’ve won SEOMoz’s Web 2.0 Award in the Employment and Jobs category.

If you’re not familiar with SEOMoz, it’s an extremely popular and well-respected resource led by Rand Fishkin focusing on SEO, social media and social networking. If you’re looking for ways to rank better in search engines, build traffic, links, etc. you should check out SEOMoz.

Their Web 2.0 Awards are given out annually to the best Web 2.0 sites on the Web in a host of categories. They used nominations from people (although we didn’t nominate ourselves), as well as their own research and analysis. And then they use a panel of judges to vote on the best.

They rank the sites on 5 criteria:

  • usability
  • usefulness
  • social aspects
  • UI & design
  • content quality

We ranked 5 out of 5 stars on each, except for social aspects (only 4 out of 5 stars).

And who did we beat out?

Well…everyone else, since we did get 1st place, but the runners-up included CareerBuilder, Monster and Mployd.

As the winner, SEOMoz also did a short interview with me about Standout Jobs.

Although being recognized for being “Web 2.0″ is cool — the most important thing is the criteria SEOMoz uses to judge the sites. We’re trying to build a usable, useful and quality experience for employers and candidates. Being acknowledged for those efforts is great.

I’d like to thank the folks at SEOMoz for giving us the award. Here’s hoping we can continue to impress and improve for the Web 2.0 Awards in 2009!
