(PRWeb UK) November 19, 2010
Impact Media, a leading Hampshire SEO Company, were presented with the Best Use of Organic Search award at the prestigious DADI Awards ceremony on November 12. Their efforts in helping Merlin Cycles increase search traffic by 190% secured the accolade in what was a highly competitive category.
The DADI Awards reward excellence throughout the digital industry. There are categories covering website design, innovative campaign strategies and search marketing amongst many others. Each year they attract submissions from the top agencies throughout the UK. Each one is then judged on their individual merits before the awards are handed out at the ceremony in Leeds.
This year Impact Media were named as finalists in the Best Use of Organic Search for their SEO work with Merlin Cycles. Since taking over the optimisation of their site in 2008, rankings and traffic have continued to improve. This included a 75% rise in organic visits within the first 12 months; a figure which has consistently increased since then, reaching a huge 190% this year. Thanks to these impressive figures, the judges at the 2010 DADI Awards chose to give Impact Media the top prize.
Amongst the contingent who travelled to Leeds for the ceremony were the Managing Director of Impact Media, Ben Norman, Head of Search Sam Stratton, Sales & Marketing Manager Rob Arkell and the Search Specialist for the Merlin Cycles account, Andy Williams.
On receiving the award Ben Norman said, “This is a fantastic achievement. We have received a number of awards in the past, but this is probably the biggest. As an SEO Agency it is important for us to get industry recognition to show off the good work that we’re doing here.”
Ben continued, “Collecting this DADI Award is the perfect reward for a lot of hard work that has been put in by Andy on the Merlin Cycles account as well as the rest of the Search Team. Congratulations to everybody at Impact Media and hopefully this can now spur us on to even greater achievements in the future.”
