Award winning search marketing company Search Laboratory Ltd [] is expanding rapidly and has recently moved to new larger premises. More than doubling its turnover in the last three years and recently winning a Best Employer award, this company really is a Yorkshire Rose.

Search Laboratory recently moved into a beautiful two storey, self-contained former chapel in North Leeds. The move was critical to the company’s growth, with major new clients being taken on all the time, there has been an ongoing need for more staff and more space. The new property is a testament to the company’s success as for the first time in five years the property is owned. The office was officially opened by Fabian Hamilton, MP North Leeds with over 100 people in attendance.

Ian Harris, CEO said: “We love the new offices, it’s such a great place to come and work every day and it’s exciting seeing the place fill up week-on-week”.

The company is growing on a monthly basis. In the last three months they have added eight new employees. “Creating jobs in the local area is important. We also employ a number of students part-time from the local university. It’s important to help people gain skills on the job; this proves invaluable to their studies and when they graduate”, says Ian, “West Yorkshire is the place to be for internet technology companies”. He advises, “The lights are bright in Leeds for technology, there is no need to head to London”.

Search Laboratory specialises in maximising profits from their clients’ websites using search engine marketing. Their services include: ‘pay-per-click’ (PPC) advertising [], search engine optimisation [], conversion optimisation [], and social media []. The company differentiates itself by focusing on multilingual campaigns and by helping businesses break into overseas markets. Working with clients of all shapes and sizes, including major high street B2C brands and global B2B technology giants, Search Laboratory is extremely ethical in its approach to business in a market where many underhand methods are used for short-term gain on Google.
