White Hat Media wins .Net magazine Search Engine Optimisation competition

White Hat Media, digital web agency and Search Engine Marketing specialist, has won the .Net Magazine SEO competition, beating off four other agencies to the top spot.

After one of the competitors dropped out, leaving five, the agencies were challenged by .Net magazine to get a website to the number one position on Google with the Search Phrase "crystalline incandescence" (in the speech marks). White Hat Media achieved this by getting its site to the number one position on Google with the phrase and beating the other four competitors to first position.

The competition was fierce and over six weeks the various agencies jockeyed for position with their sites. On the day though, it was White Hat Media that best demonstrated their expertise in the sector.

The article describing the approach of each of the agencies and what position they finished in can be read in the March 2005 edition of .Net Magazine.

At the end of the competition Jeremy Spiller of White Hat Media was interviewed by Mike Williams of .Net magazine and the full interview can be read on White Hat’s website at

Jeremy Spiller, joint MD with his business partner Kevin Elliott says ‘We were glad to be invited to enter this competition and show what we could do. Although the competition was not the same as working for a real client, we still had to apply the techniques of achieving a high listing including site and page optimisation, link building and online marketing that we have developed expertise and knowledge in over the years. The other agencies are all good and experts in the field and so we are very proud to have won.’
