Leapfrogg Judges Search Marketing at The Brighton and Hove Web Awards Thursday 15 November 2007 PDF Print Leapfrogg Internet Marketing is proud to be sponsoring The Brighton & Hove Web Awards β and as a company with search at the core of their business - are delighted to be judging and presenting the βLeapfrogg Searchability Awardβ for the forth year running. The Brighton & Hove Web Awards celebrates the cityβs reputation as a leading hub for new media. Leapfrogg joins a select group of judges from local businesses, community organisations and public bodies commending excellence at the evening event. The βLeapfrogg Searchability Awardβ highlights the prominence of search engine marketing for website owners. Around 75% of Internet users find a website for the first time through a search engine or directory. Leapfrogg Internet Marketing is one of the UKβs premier companies in helping small to medium-sized businesses raise their profile in search engines and maximise the value of their websites. The winning website owner set to impress the Leapfrogg team will need to excel in both βon the page' optimisation, including textual content and usability, and βoff the pageβ factors including link popularity and in particular social media. The latter has seen massive growth in the last year and is now a fundamental aspect in search strategy. As this once small, low-key event has continued to grow in size and status within Brighton & Hove so too has Leapfrogg. Spawned out of Brightonβs new media industry in 2003, Leapfrogg first presented at the awards four years ago. In this time the company has jumped from a team of two to 13, working with many local business owners to realise their potential online. Leapfrogg hope the award will be an inspiration to other companies, both locally and nationally, yet to invest their marketing budgets in search. Rosie Freshwater, Managing Director at Leapfrogg, who will be presenting the award said: βWe are delighted to offer our continued support at an event which celebrates Brighton and Hoveβs thriving new media industry. Over the last four years we have witnessed significant progress in local business owners understanding and implementation of search campaigns; this award seeks to highlight thatβ. The Brighton & Hove Web Awards are created and hosted by local charity Sussex Community Internet Project (SCIP) and are part of the Brighton Digital Festival. Mark Walker at SCIP said: βNo other city, as far as we know, celebrates new media in this way. These awards are representative of Brightonβs reputation as a hub for new media. We are appreciative of Leapfroggβs continued support and expertise in highlighting the importance of search marketing as part of the awardsβ The Brighton and Hove Web Awards takes place on Thursday 14th November at the Sallis Benney Theatre, University of Brighton.
