Search Marketing Agencies driving rapid growth of gShift’s integrated SEO software system as company turns its eye towards enterprise market
Toronto, ON – April 23, 2013: SEO software provider gShift Labs was named today to the prestigious Branham300 list of Canada’s top Information and Communication Technology (ICT) companies. gShift, whose Web Presence Optimizer™ software is quickly becoming the industry standard for SEO agencies and in-house teams, also made Branham’s list of “The Next 50 Canadian ICT Companies.”
Celebrating 20 years, the Branham300 highlights the top Canadian and Multinational ICT companies operating in Canada, as ranked by revenues. Privately held gShift, a leading SEO technology software provider, earlier this year announced it achieved 104 percent year-over-year revenue growth in 2012. According to Forrester’s US Interactive Marketing Forecast, 2011 To 2016, the SEO technology market will exceed $600 million in the United States alone by 2016.
“Making the Branham300 list is a terrific milestone for the team,” says Krista LaRiviere, Cofounder & CEO, gShift Labs. “Our growth to this point has been driven by the immense pressure SEO agencies and in-house teams are under to sift through large quantities of SEO data on a daily basis to make the best decisions about how to improve a web presence for organic search and measure and report on the results.”
LaRiviere says that an SEO software system is becoming a mission critical business application for search marketing agencies interested in scaling their businesses, improving operational efficiencies, and proving ROI to end clients. With the convergence of SEO, Social Media and Content Marketing, agencies need an SEO software provider on the leading edge of organic search that can provide all the necessary data in one complete system.
Accompanying this release is a video announcement in which LaRiviere provides a fuller description of gShift’s SEO software system and the powerful combination of keyword data and insights it provides SEO agencies and in-house teams.
