We are delight­ed to announce that Linkdex won Best Inno­va­tion Soft­ware for Enti­ty Search last week at the Euro­pean Search Awards in Berlin. The award goes nice­ly with all the oth­er awards in the UK, Europe and the US we’ve won before. At the same awards, our very own Bas van den Beld won “Euro­pean Search Per­son­al­i­ty of the Year”, which shows that peo­ple and plat­form are a great com­bi­na­tion.


Nat­u­ral­ly, we would like to con­grat­u­late the run­ners up in the cat­e­go­ry along with the oth­er award win­ners of the night. Also, we feel like win­ners with clients like Mon­ey­Su­per­Mar­ket win­ning best inte­grat­ed and best PPC cam­paign.

Jim Banks, Glob­al Head of Bid­d­a­ble Media at Cheap­flights, and judge at EU Search Awards 2015 explains the rea­sons of why Linkdex won the inno­va­tion award in this video:

Ear­li­er this month, Matt Roberts, spoke about his love for Enti­ty Search:

(With Enti­ty Search) … we’ve got a very pow­er­ful slice of the web for SEO and PR pro­fes­sion­als to exploit. The key ben­e­fits of this data include:

Top­i­cal Author­i­ty – The authors that rank for large num­bers of key­words on a spe­cif­ic niche might be con­sid­ered ‘top­i­cal author­i­ties’ by search engines. Enti­ty Search finds top­i­cal author­i­ties.

Trust – The authors that rank for large num­bers of key­words are trust­ed along with the domain they write
winner-badge-300x300on. In an age of domains being dis­avowed and domain trust being crit­i­cal, are there bet­ter mea­sures of domain trust and author trust than top­i­cal author­i­ty, traf­fic and rank? Enti­ty Search finds writ­ers that are trust­ed by search engines.

Audi­ence – Then there’s traf­fic itself. If you want to work with authors that have an audi­ence then know­ing their con­tent ranks and has a con­sis­tent audi­ence on the top­ics that inter­est you is price­less. Enti­ty Search finds top­i­cal author­i­ties.”
