Google has announced their 2015 eCity winners, and our home town of Norfolk has topped the list in Virginia!
Google describes the award thusly:
Google’s eCity Awards recognize the strongest online business community in each state. These cities’ businesses are using the web to find new customers, connect with existing customers and fuel their local economies.
The report was created by looking at which cities in each state had the most companies using Google AdWords as a percentage of the population of a given city. From that shortlist, a random sampling of businesses in each city was analyzed and rated based on factors such as whether or not each company had a website, blog, or a social network presence. More on the methodology here. The city with the highest overall rating won. Go Norfolk!
