Global Internet company YourAmigo has been selected by leading publisher Red Herring, as one of the top 100 technology companies of the year, for its next generation Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) technology.

YourAmigo is a global provider of SEO services to large internet B2C, B2B and information websites, including Sony, Reebok, Thomas Cook, Orange, B&Q and Sky.

Traditional SEO uses manual methods to modify software code in webpages to improve rankings in the organic listings of internet search engines. These processes are limited by their time intensiveness, resulting in few pages being optimised and an inability to keep up-to-date with changes to the website content and changing search ranking algorithms. YourAmigo has solved these problems with a scalable technology service which allows its SEO practitioners to fully optimise large websites on an on-going basis.

“We started life as a developer of our own search engines which we sold to companies like the Tribune Company and McGraw-Hill, but then turned our business towards helping websites to perform to their optimal potential in the internet search engines” said YourAmigo CEO, Rahmon Coupe . “We are generating significant revenue for our clients by using our unique technology to rank all our clients’ website products highly in Google, Yahoo, MSN and Baidu. These products were previously largely invisible to the search engines, but now they rank in the top ten results”.

YourAmigo has changed the SEO world by using its intelligent technology and a Pay-Per-Click (PPC) business model where they share the risk and reward with their clients.

“Companies are already spending lots of money on search engine advertising, yet the main search results account for 85% of all clicks, and you cannot pay Google to be in this valuable area which is only based on search relevance. Our technology service has successfully increased our clients’ natural search revenue by over 800% in many cases” said Mr Coupe.

Red Herring evaluated the hottest technology companies on the basis of technology innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition and financial health to arrive at the Top 100 innovators.
