Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 20, 2009
TopSEOs ranked Portent Interactive among the top 10 search engine optimization (SEO) and pay per click (PPC) companies for 2008. Portent was the #10 SEO company and the #8 PPC company. The top 10 firms were selected after a year-long competition that included over 2000 other search companies.
Portent is a full service internet marketing company. Search engine optimization and pay per click marketing are a huge part of their services set, though.
"Search engines generate over 75% of everything that happens online. Just about everyone starts at a search engine when they're shopping or researching. So it's always been a tremendous part of our work as an internet marketing company. We're excited to be recognized by TopSEOs," Ian Lurie, President of Portent Interactive, said.
Portent brings several unique advantages to their SEO and PPC clients:
Their toolset, PythiaSEO, is a powerful suite of tools that finds and reports roadblocks to a strong search engine optimization campaign. PythiaSEO crawls sites like a search engine and then generates reports as to 'crawlability'. The Portent team then uses those reports to improve site visibility in search engines.
Their analytics system, PythiaAnalytics, is the first narrative-driven web analytics toolset. It measures a site's visibility in search engines, revenue, return on investment and social media visibility, and then compares that to events in the life of the business and the web site. PythiaAnalytics connects the narrative to actual site performance.
And the Portent team brings together veteran, expert copywriters, search analysts, pay per click specialists and internet marketers together to create SEO and PPC campaigns that are a real marketing asset in any organization.
The TopSEOs competition included client interviews, competitive analysis and a careful examination of each company's core competencies, said Jeev Trika of TopSEOs:
"We compared customer satisfaction, the depth of knowledge in the field, reporting methods, practicing internally what is preached to clients, and additional discrete competitive advantages. Each core competence was examined in great detail over the course of the year. In addition to that, we interviewed customers of each entrant on four separate occasions during the year, to be able to provide the real measure of customer satisfaction. During the interviews we enquired about the status of the project, the quality of services being performed, and the status on the return of their investment. These companies experienced a one year scrutiny of their processes and methodologies - they certainly showed consistency and ability to perform."
