Gainesville, GA (PRWEB) September 30, 2008
Visiongain, one of the fastest growing and most innovative independent media companies in Europe, awarded Red Clay Interactive the 2008 Bronze Search Engine Optimization award during their recent International Mobile Search Awards in London. UK-based Guava and India-based Puretech Internet Pvt. LTD took the Gold and Silver awards, respectively.
"It is an honor to be mentioned with the other award-winning companies that manage clients like McDonald's, Yahoo!, eBay and HP on a global scale," said Lance Compton, CEO of Red Clay Interactive. "It is a testament to the strength of our entire staff and the work they do for each of our clients, primarily through search engine optimization and its effect in the mobile search world."
With the popularity of smart phones, searching the Internet from a mobile phone is gaining prominence throughout the US and Western Europe. According to a recent report by comScore, almost 21 million U.S. and 4.5 million European wireless subscribers searched from their mobile phones in June of 2008 alone. This equates to a 68% and 38% increase, respectively, from the previous year.
"As 3G technologies and web-browsing capabilities on mobile phones continue to expand, the number of people accessing this technology will as well," said Compton. "We feel Red Clay is in a unique position to help companies reach this new group of consumers."
Earlier this month, Red Clay was also named a top five web development firm by topseos, an independent authority on search engine marketers. Compton attributes the success in search marketing to Red Clay's integrated approach. "Instead of being a technical firm or a creative firm, Red Clay is both," he said. "We are able to design websites for the best in usability, as well as build sites with the latest optimization strategies for search methods in mind."
"By offering full-service solutions, Red Clay is helping our clients reach the markets they are targeting."
