Greenlight, the UK’s leading independent search marketing agency has been ranked in the 2008 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA survey. The agency achieved an overall ranking of 88.

The survey is a league table of the 500 public and private technology, media and telecommunications companies across the EMEA region, that have achieved the fastest rates of revenue growth during the past 5 years. Greenlight’s five year growth rate was 1,748.82%.

This latest award follows Greenlight’s success in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 list, where the agency ranked 14th amongst the UK’s 50 fastest growing technology firms.

Greenlight works with over 50 of the UK’s leading brands, providing specialist SEO (search engine optimization) and PPC (Pay Per Click) services, for the likes of Asda Walmart, and Co-operative Financial Services. Recent wins include NatMags and ghd.

The agency’s in house team of PhD qualified computer scientists develops a range of proprietary technologies that can be applied to client campaigns. These include paid search tools Quant™ and Adapt™ which optimise ROI on paid search advertising campaigns. Greenlight has also recently developed SearchSentry™, a platform that helps companies protect their brands online following Google’s decision allowing advertisers to bid on their competitor’s brand terms.

Warren Cowan, CEO and founder of Greenlight said: “To be ranked 14th in the Fast 50 is already a great achievement for Greenlight. To then be awarded 88th place in the Fast 500, which looks at companies across the EMEA region, is the icing on the cake. We are delighted to have been recognized in this way.”
