'Click' Here to Enter Book Giveaway Contest

September 10, 2008 7:30 AM

In January, we named Hitwise research guru Bill Tancer to our 12 to Watch list at TelevisionWeek. The list looks at the 12 people we think will make news in the TV business in 2008.

A quote from that article is now on the book jacket of Mr. Tancer’s book “Click,” released this month by Hyperion.

I happen to have an extra hardcover copy of the book, and I love to share books and pass them along. In this case, I thought it would be fun to run a contest, with the prize being this free copy of the book.

The book is all about what we search for online. So I’m going to give away a hardcover copy of the book to whoever comes up with the most interesting and clever, as determined by me, five-word statement about Internet searches. That’s it. Those are my only guidelines.

Go ahead and submit your five-word statements about Internet searches in the comments section of this blog. I’ll pick the winner and then you can e-mail me your mailing address for the book.

Oh, and if you want to enter another “Click” contest, click here.
