MountainWest Capital Network’s Utah Top 100, which recognizes the top businesses in Utah, names SEO.com to the Emerging Elite. This is the second in-state award within in the last six months for the search engine optimization company.

SALT LAKE CITY – SEO.com capped its record year with one of the highest achievements for young Utah businesses. MountainWest Capital Network selected the Internet marketing company as one of 12 newer “Emerging Elite” companies at the Utah Top 100, an event recognizing the fastest-growing businesses in the state of Utah.

“It is truly an honor to receive this award,” said David Bascom, CEO of SEO.com. “We have worked hard to be successful as a company, but there are so many other great companies here in Utah, I feel like we must be doing something right to be recognized in this way.”

The Emerging Elite were selected among companies less than five years old that had significant increase in revenue, and also showed considerable promise for future success. The Utah 100 was determined by the percentage of revenue increase from 2004 through 2008.

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert addressed the Utah Top 100 crowd that gathered in the Grand America Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City, and told them their success is providing the backbone of strength that Utah needs to be competitive with the rest of the world.

“I appreciate the good work you all do to make Utah the great state it is,” Herbert said. “My No. 1 priority as the governor is to grow the economy. You are the engine driving the economy, and we are here to highlight those that are making that effort.”

The Emerging Elite award comes after both PromotionWorld and TOP SEOs recognized SEO.com as a top 10 SEO company in the country, and the Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum named the search engine marketing firm among the Top 25 fastest growing Utah businesses under five years old.

In the last year, SEO.com’s monthly revenue has increased more than 300 percent; the company moved headquarters to accommodate its rapid growth; and it acquired Graphics.net to offer full-service Web design along with an array of SEO services. Since its launch in June, 2007, SEO.com has hired more than 40 employees and helped numerous clients climb to the top of the search engines. Currently, SEO.com has more than 100 clients that range from small businesses to Fortune 100 companies.
