Barry Schwartz Wins US Search Personality Award

Published December 21, 2018

Two months ago, on October 18, 2018 in Las Vegas, I was honored to have been named the US Search Personality of the year by the US Search Awards.  I have to say, it was a very humbling night and I am still a bit in awe of the whole event.

As many of you know, I am personally very involved in the search industry - just go read my bio over here.  In fact, this is my 15th year anniversary of writing about search and SEO.  I'll tell you the truth - I still love doing it, every single day.  I love how things are constantly changing in the search space, both in terms of technical changes and policy changes.  I love the search marketing industry and the people within it.  It is a wonderful community and to be given this honor is beyond words.

Why did I take so long to write about it here?  Truth is, it has been a very busy year for us at RustyBrick and I wanted to let things calm down a bit before writing about this.  The end of the year is a good time to look back and reflect.  I might have to say that with this award and a few other things that happened over the year  - some that I cannot talk about yet - that it may have been the most successful year yet.

Some people have been asking me for photos and videos from the event, so here are a select few, you can find more over here.

The award itself, it comes with a tiara - no joke:
