Rank: 25   Ayima

Its proprietary tools can emulate Google's algorithms to assess search results

Businesses like Marks & Spencer, O2 and Aviva use this company to increase traffic from internet search engines. Founded in 2002, Ayima was put on hold in 2004 as founders Tim Webb and Mike Nott went to work for PartyGaming, where they met Mike Jacobson and Rob Kerry. The four returned in 2007 and Ayima is now one of Britain’s biggest dedicated search engine optimisation agencies. The company is expanding overseas and has three offices in America in addition to its London headquarters. Word-of-mouth referrals helped sales grow 93% a year from £737,000 in 2008 to £5.3m in 2011.
