This is the subhead for the blog post

We’re down to 32 brilliant contestants in our third annual Most Influential SEM tournament! Round 1 featured the usual smattering of upsets, plus strong momentum for the #ppcchat crew, Third Door Media brigade, and some of the best independent agencies in the industry.

We’re especially looking forward to a few of this round’s tilts (voting runs through 9 am PT on Monday), including:

Brad Geddes vs. Chris Sherman

Joanna Lord vs. our own Joe Kerschbaum

– #ppcchat stalwart Melissa Mackey vs. defending champ Mona Elesseily

As always, you can vote daily for your SEM favorites. The Sweet 16 crew will be announced Monday! Good luck to all.
