SEO Sherpa Shines at the Global Search Awards 2023 – Awarded Global Best Large SEO Agency!


It is with immense pride and delight that I can reveal that SEO Sherpa is the 2023 Global Search Awards Best Large SEO Agency.

In a prestigious awards ceremony held last week in Montmarte, Paris, SEO Sherpa took away the world’s most prized agency award and two best campaign trophies:

  • Best Global Large SEO Agency
  • Best MENA Campaign
  • Best Use of Search – Finance (SEO)
Global Best Large SEO Agency Award

This incredible achievement is a testament to the hard work and progress we have made over the past decade.

We’ve grown from a one-man operation, launched in my apartment 11 years ago, to a remarkable team of over 50 dedicated professionals across ten countries serving some of the world’s most reputable brands.

This victory signifies a monumental milestone for us as we stand tall (for this year at least) as the number-one SEO agency in the world!

About The Global Search Awards

Organized by ‘We Are Search,’ the awards are globally respected, attracting entries from the very best agencies in our field.

Winners are decided through a rigorous two-stage process led by an expert panel of judges, who scrutinize every aspect of a campaign. 

Among them are some of the industry’s brightest minds, such as:

  • Eli Schwartz, Former SEO Lead at Survey Monkey, Author of Product-Led SEO
  • Aleyda Solis, International Speaker for SMX, INBOUND, Mozcon, and others

The Global Search Awards are more than just a competition – they represent the vanguard of an industry driving the digital world’s evolution, shaping businesses, and making a genuine difference in how we perceive and engage with digital content. 

As SEO Sherpa, being part of this transformative journey and being recognized by this esteemed panel is an honor and a testament to our commitment to digital excellence.

Our Wins

Best Global Large SEO Agency

Cementing our position on the global stage, SEO Sherpa was honored as the ‘Global Best Large SEO Agency.’

This victory is particularly sweet for us, given it’s the first time an agency from the MENA region has been given such global recognition. The award serves as a testament to the quality of our work, our client successes, and the value we bring to our clients.

The judges hailed our “consistent client successes” and were particularly impressed with the substantial increase in customer lifetime value that our strategies have produced. 

They also acknowledged our dedication to nurturing industry talent through our quality internship program, which they considered a significant contribution to the SEO community.

This recognition reaffirms our dedication and tireless efforts in providing top-tier SEO services for our clients throughout the year, and it further strengthens our reputation as a premier SEO agency on a global scale.

Best MENA SEO Campaign

The ‘Best MENA SEO Campaign‘ award recognized our work with YAS Island, a campaign that underscored our ability to triumph over significant challenges. Tasked with doubling YAS Island’s organic traffic and revenue within a year amidst two planned website migrations, we delivered exceptional results that earned us this accolade.

Best MENA SEO Campaign

The judges highlighted the effectiveness of our holistic approach, which saw us successfully navigate the complex migration process to deliver outstanding outcomes. 

This win reaffirms our conviction that no challenge is too big, and every digital obstacle can become a stepping stone to success.

Best Use of Search – Finance (SEO): Large

Our campaign with Al Ansari Exchange, aptly titled ‘Converting Position to Profit,’ caught the judges’ eyes with its robust data-centric approach and attention to detail.

The strategic planning involved in the campaign was commended for being well-defined, remarkably structured, and focused on our client’s target audience’s position in the marketing funnel. 

The judges’ recognition is a testimony to our unshakeable commitment to strategy and our pursuit of delivering unmatched results.

What Does the Future Hold for SEO Sherpa?

These award wins are indeed thrilling milestones in SEO Sherpa’s journey. However, we view them as stepping stones to more incredible achievements and recognition in the future.

With our eyes set on the road ahead this year, we aim to extend our reach internationally, work with a diverse range of global clients, and continuously enhance and add to our services.

To our team tirelessly pushing towards higher peaks of achievement, our clients who trust us to guide them, and the community that inspires us, we extend our heartfelt gratitude. This victory is as much yours as it is ours.

We also extend our sincere congratulations to all the other winners at the Global Search Awards 2023. We are genuinely proud to be a part of this community.
