Every month over 50% of Romanian internet users surf on websites optimized by five elements digital. In the last 30 days before the European Search Awards entry submission deadline, we administered over 80 million search engine visits to the websites of our clients. On the other hand, as SEO agency, we are still small, having a total team of just 18 members – roughly half of it working full time, the other part half time.

five elements digital has over twelve years of unique experience in SEO for newspapers, enterprise/corporate, classifieds and large/complex websites or the administration of 7-digit performance marketing budgets. But we also serve – successfully small companies with proven business-model and ambitious start-ups with challenging growth targets.

Until 2018 we worked nearly on exclusive contracts only and were over 10 years responsible for a larger set of leading national newspapers, magazines, and classified portals. This perspective of taking ownership and being a part of our partners operation and success for the long term is central to our services.

After opening in 2018 to the general market and even foreign clients five elements digital quickly grew to about 30 active clients with a portfolio of over 50 websites. five elements digital is Bucharest based, but serves also clients from the UK, USA and Switzerland and Germany.

We are extremely happy to have been nominated three years in a row finalist in the top 10 as “Best SEO Agency” at the European Search Awards (2020, 2021, 2022) and likewise at the Global Search Awards in the Top 8 (2021) – among other nominalizations in different categories. Participating at the European Search Awards is highly motivating for our team as they feel some recognition of hard (taking over a majority of #1 spots among 16k monitored keywords between two market leaders), often innovative (custom methodology and BI solution to track and report 16k keywords) and sometimes unusual work (doing SEO for several world leading FCMG brands by P&G from which several did not even have websites).
