In a 2014 ranking of the Best Local SEO Companies, performed by e-ventures Worldwide, Big Oak was ranked #15 nationally. As with most awards and recognitions, you should take them with a healthy grain of salt; but it is always nice to be recognized for doing something right. Rather than link to the list with other competing SEO companies, I have provided a screenshot of our placement.
As for the authenticity of the research by e-ventures Worldwide, you can read more about them on their site. I pulled this image from their home page that speaks to their credibility and how they provide rankings.
Here is our ranking as we were listed at #15 for Best Local SEO companies. We would love to speak with you (call us at 1-804-741-6776) if you are interested in becoming a locally-focused client in our Richmond, VA market, or anywhere else in the country.
