We’re Bursting With Pride – SEO Sherpa Wins Three 2018 MENA Search Awards


I am proud and delighted to announce that we have won three prestigious awards at this year’s MENA Search Awards.

Winning Best Large SEO Agency, Best SEO Campaign, and Best Use of Search – FCMG highlights our commitment to excellence and our dedication to delivering success for our clients.


According to the official MENA Search Awards website, the awards celebrate the “expertise, talent and achievements of the search industry.”

The flagship event ensures only the best work in SEO, PPC, and content marketing is recognized.

This year’s winners and nominees include leading search and digital agencies such as Kubix Digital, MediaCom Worldwide, iProspect, Bruce Clay, RBBI and Latitude Digital Marketing, among others.

To be shortlisted for the 2018 MENA Search Awards was an undeniable honour considering the pool of talent shortlisted this year. So, on the night of the 20th September, we were beyond thrilled to hear our names announced as winners of “Best Large SEO Agency,” “Best SEO Campaign,” and “Best Use of Search – FMCG.”

MENA Search Awards Best SEO Campaign

As the judges commented, SEO Sherpa won these awards due to our ability to “demonstrating excellent strategy” and “delivering impressive results… that had a large impact on the business.”

In fact, here’s exactly what the judges had to say about SEO Sherpa:

Best Large SEO Agency

“SEO Sherpa’s campaign not only delivered impressive results on a tight budget but had a large impact on the business. The judges were left impressed and noted the strategy & execution to gain these results.”

Best Use of Search – FMCG

My team and I couldn’t be more proud of such recognition from esteemed industry leaders and peers.

These awards confirm the hard work put in by each member of SEO Sherpa, day in and day out. None of this success is possible without each team member playing their respective roles in delivering success throughout this past year.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to these achievements.
