I went through and found all the <strong>Local Search Pros</strong> that have been nominated - the ones I know anyway. (So sorry if I missed anyone.) These are all great guys that do lots of good things for our industry.

<strong>But my vote goes to Mike Blumenthal</strong>, because I don't think anyone does more to help SMBs and the industry with Google+ Local problems than Mike does. He doesn't have many votes so far, so go give him YOUR vote of confidence and appreciation for all he does!

To vote, simply click on the "VOTE" button. You can vote daily and the voting ends August 5, 2012 at 11:59 PM PST.

<strong>VOTE!</strong>

<a href="http://influencers.smallbiztrends.com/small-business-experts-2012/reese-ed/">Vote for Ed Reese</a> </strong>

ADDED: Vote for Darren Shaw
(Sorry Darren, thanks Phil)

Apologies if I missed anyone else that was nominated. There is no "Local" category or anything, so I just had to go through TONS of pages and try to find names I recognized.

Hat tip to Gail Gardner at GrowMap for the inspiration to do this post. Her post is here: <strong><a href="http://growmap.com/small-business-experts/">Small Biz Trends Small Business Influencer Awards: My Recommendations ~ Links for Easy Daily Voting</a></strong>

I second Joy's vote - you should be on there, Linda, damnit!

Thanks for getting the word out. All I can say is I'm flattered to be in such good company.

BTW, last I checked Darren Shaw was nominated, too :)
