About Us

Search Laboratory is an award winning digital marketing agency specialising in Pay-Per-Click (PPC), search engine optimisation (SEO), conversion optimisation and website analytics.

We are a global agency with over 250 clients spanning 18 countries and from a broad range of sectors including ecommerce, fashion, technology,  B2B, professional services, gaming and many more. Currently managing search engine marketing campaigns in more than 35 languages, Search Laboratory employs a team of in-house linguists at its Leeds HQ. As multilingual specialists no one is better placed to help you increase the revenue you make from your website in global markets.

The company was founded by Ian Harris in 2005 in order to provide a more auditable, ethical and statistical approach to PPC and SEO, and to fill the gap in the market for a proper, linguistically faithful approach to multilingual campaign management.

Ian Harris, the CEO and founder, is a true internet innovator. Ian spotted the gap in the market for a robust PPC bid management system whilst acting as Chief Technology Officer for one of the country’s leading web translation software businesses. Ultimately identifying this gap in the market led to the creation of BidLab™ (our proprietary bid management software) and Search Laboratory. The highly analytical and ethical approach taken is unique – we focus on increasing revenue and delivering demonstrable results for our clients. Today, Search Laboratory manages millions of dollars, pounds and euros of our clients‘ online media spend each month.

We employ more than 180 full time staff between our Leeds, London and New York offices  including a large team of mother-tongue linguists and search specialists.

All members of the PPC team are degree educated and come mainly from a science or maths background. Our SEO team consists of talented individuals with a broad range of expertise including: Marketing, New Media, PR, Journalism, Creative Writing, International Business and English.
