  • SEOptimise Wins Best Blog at the UK Search Awards 2011

    Last night 300 UK search marketers attended the Emirates Stadium, London for the very first UK Search Awards.

    With 16 categories and over 50 nominees, including SEOptimise for best agency, best travel search campaign and best blog, the event brought together some of the best agencies in the UK.

    The search awards started with a drinks reception followed by dinner, before the host – Andy Crane from the lunch time show on BBC Radio Manchester – started proceedings. With only two speeches from the all the winners who collected their awards, the ceremony went very quickly.

    The speech of the evening came from Majestic SEO’s Dixon Jones who simply said “Majestic SEO is f****** Good!” and walked off, but you have to agree with him, as it’s a tool that is used widely throughout the industry.

    The first UK search awards event will go down as a success, and hopefully will inspire more agencies and in-house teams to get involved in future awards.

    A full list of the awards and winners are below.
