Talk of Manchester Business Awards - Best SEO Agency

Best SEO Agency 2015/16/17

In December 2015, we were awarded “Best SEO Agency” at the Talk of Manchester Business Awards. Beating off some stiff competition from other, long established SEO agencies in the Manchester area, we picked up the acclamation in a formal, black tie ceremony at Manchester’s Mercure Piccadilly Hotel. We have since retained this title for two consecutive years – the only company to ever do so.
