Semrush, a leading online visibility management SaaS platform, announced winners of its Semrush Awards 2022, which celebrate the individuals and companies who outperformed competitors and showed incredible growth across digital channels.
“Unlike many industry awards that are limited to companies who submit themselves, Semrush Awards are about identifying the people and companies who are killing it in the world of marketing”
Historically, marketing awards are determined by a panel of judges tasked with evaluating a set of criteria and often the participants have limited transparency into the process. Driving forward the new era of marketing achievements, the Semrush Awards 2022 were created to showcase the industry’s top talent for the work they’ve done in a way that’s driven by statistics.
Backed entirely by Semrush online visibility growth data, winners are those who outperformed in the categories of omnichannel growth, organic boosters, position 0 invaders, community leaders, and organic traffic accelerators, as determined by Semrush, which relied on its web crawlers to identify unique domains within its database. From there, Semrush selected the top 10 individuals and companies across each award category who reached impressive levels of growth across social media, Google, and within their PPC strategies.
“Unlike many industry awards that are limited to companies who submit themselves, Semrush Awards are about identifying the people and companies who are killing it in the world of marketing,” said Olga Andrienko, Vice President of Brand Marketing, Semrush. “We pride ourselves on our ability to analyze websites and different channels to identify who’s grown the most and increased their online visibility and are committed to giving them the credit and recognition they deserve.”
Specifically, Semrush data analyzed various marketing and website metrics, compared them to different success factors, and cross-checked all data to ensure only quality content was taken into consideration. Brands and individuals were evaluated for the awards across various industries including education, food & beverage, health, beauty & lifestyle, media & entertainment, retail, service & technology, and travel.
