We’re scientists. We don’t guess; we look for evidence.


Search Laboratory was founded in 2005 by Ian Harris, a technologist frustrated by the lack of evidence supporting his company’s marketing decisions.

A trained mathematician, Ian knew that data and logic were the best tools for optimizing digital marketing campaigns and outperforming the competition. This approach persists in everything we do today, led by our analytics and data science team.
