The US Search Awards is in association with headline sponsor SEMrush, it is regarded as the premier celebration of SEO, PPC and content marketing in the US and celebrates and rewards the expertise, talent, and achievements of the search industry.
The awards attract hundreds of entries from the leading search and digital agencies from across North America and to those based elsewhere around the globe who are delivering work for the US market.
The 2018 awards were presented during a gala dinner at Treasure Island during Pubcon Las Vegas on Wednesday, October 17, 2018.
The US Search Awards follows the success of the UK Search Awards and the European Search Awards, which were launched by British events agency Don’t Panic in 2011 and 2012 respectively. Both awards have become key celebrations for the search industry in those territories. Don’t Panic has also established the first search awards in the Middle East & North Africa, the MENA Search Awards.
It is “truly a huge honor in the SEO industry to even be a finalist”. The competition is fierce, and the criteria is stringent! Hundreds of Top Digital Agencies from around the world are judged in over 31 categories. According to the US Search Awards, the judging criteria is based on many factors including “clear objectives, creative and effective implementation and tangible, demonstrable results in the campaign award categories.”

Winning the “Best Local Campaign” for an SEO client we love working with, and that’s right in our hometown was truly amazing!!
Why Infront Webworks Competes for National and Global SEO Awards
Infront’s SEO and Digital Marketing team submits the work it does for clients for consideration in renowned award programs like the US Search Awards, to raise the level of service we provide clients. To compare our SEO and SEM strategies, techniques, team, and performance to other agencies that are we respect in the industry for doing world-class SEO and SEM client work.
In short, reputable, non-biased, awards like the US Search Awards provide Agencies in Digital Marketing and SEO the opportunity to gauge the work they do for clients against the performance of other agencies that perform at the highest levels.
The reason Top SEO Agencies in the SEO industry work so hard to be transparent, trustworthy and effective is that our industry, unfortunately, does carry a stigma of lacking in those characteristics. Things like the industry awards, certifications, ambassadorship, and case studies all contribute to raising the bar for SEO Agencies that want to be among the best. It separates us from the fly-by-night SEO companies that bombard companies with sales calls and auto-dialers, selling SEO without even having a competent team inhouse to fulfill the work they are selling.
