Manaferra Wins “Best Use of Search” award at Global Search Awards

Following our double shortlist nomination for the Global Search Awards 2021,  we are super thrilled to announce that we walked home (or rather stayed home) with one prestigious award. 

Wednesday, July 14th, 2021 was an amazing day for our team. We won the Global Search Award for the best SEO campaign in higher education.

Winning is not everything, but we can’t deny that this award was actually sort of a nice feather in our cap. It also comes hot on the heels of our recent shortlist for two awards from the European Search Awards, which further adds to this tally. After all, it brings huge validation to our team and puts another official stamp of approval from certified experts in the industry. 

A reminder of what Manaferra has  been nominated for: 

  • Best Small SEO Agency
  • Best use of Search – Third Sector (Higher Education)

Here’s what our Co-founder and SEO director had to say about the win:

“Following an exceptional year of growth for Manaferra, the award we’ve earned is another firm confirmation that we’re headed in the right direction. Amidst a fluctuating search landscape and aggressive pipeline goals, the campaign was really impressive, yielding 1,423% increase in organic leads and +447% in organic traffic. We all felt this was a fantastic standout entry and very well-deserving of this win.”

Granit Doshlaku, Co-Founder, SEO Director


Taking place annually, the Global Search Awards is a celebration of the leading agencies and campaigns in SEO, PPC, and content marketing. The awards are highly competitive and highlight industry leaders who are actively exhibiting outstanding growth while offering superior digital strategies to their clients. The panel, consisting of renowned industry experts, selected all entries based on a rigorous two-step process and several aspects of the marketing campaign.

“I was completely swept off my feet when I saw Manaferra’s name on the screen, announcing the winner in the Best Use of Search- Third Sector category. In moments like this, we come to realize that our hard work and sleepless nights are just a small price to pay for such a recognition and prestigious competition. We are incredibly proud of the work we have been able to do for our clients and the outstanding outcomes we have achieved.”

Faton Sopa, Co-Founder & CEO
