SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Sep 26, 2012) - SEOmoz, the leading industry provider of search engine and social optimization software, was named the winner of Marketing Innovation at the 2012 Washington Tech Impact Awards. Moz was distinguished out of more than 160 companies nominated and was recognized during the WTIA banquet in the Washington State Convention Center, where the event hosted over 250 Washington business leaders.
SEOmoz makes software for marketers with a focus on inbound channels including SEO, social media, content, and community. Their software combs websites to find errors or missed opportunities and then makes recommendations based on best practices. Their SEO techniques help websites rank higher on search engine results, thus driving more website traffic for clients. With a current roster of nearly 17,000 paying subscribers and a monthly web count of over two million visitors to its very vocal online community, the company is a leader in the optimization space. SEOmoz is continuing to expand and recently announced the acquirement of social media analytic platform, Followerwonk. They also made two major updates in August to Mozscape, SEOmoz's metric platform that crawls and indexes over 60 billion URLs.
"We're honored that Moz was named as a top innovator in Washington State among so many great companies," said CEO Rand Fishkin. "These awards are such a great way to showcase all of the effort we put in to making SEOmoz a distinguished leader in the industry."
