With each project, we endeavor to innovate, utilizing the latest techniques and staying abreast of contemporary SEO developments. This award is a testament to our team’s commitment to excellence and serves as a powerful motivator to continue excelling in what we do. Koen Leemans, SEO specialist
The European Search Awards are a key date on our calendar. We work hard on our entries, but as you’re up against some of the biggest international agencies, it’s always a little nerve-wracking! To come out with two wins is huge, and it’s wonderful to see both leadership and client teams recognised for their forward-thinking work. Victoria Patten, Marketing Manager
Winning the Best Large SEO Agency award at the European Search Awards is pretty much the pinnacle of awards you can win – it’s a super proud moment for me. We’ve come a long way as an agency in the last 10 years (it was only three years ago we won the Best Small SEO Agency at the European awards), and I know awards don’t define us, but they do help guide us along the way. And for me, this is an indication that we are heading in the right direction. Nick Redding, Managing Director
Winning an award at the EU Search Awards is a priceless reward for our teams who work hard every day to push innovation even further. It proves that our technology remains at the forefront of the SEO industry. Thank you to Don’t Panic Events and to the judges! François Goube, CEO
The European Search Awards are the first major awards that we have won as a business & demonstrate that we are very much on the path to growth, supported by recognition from a range of industry experts & people we really respect. We look forward to what the future holds for Cedarwood Digital & also entering the European Search Awards in 2023!
