May 1, 2012

Neustar Awards with First Quarter “Best of .Biz” Award

Neustar, Inc., a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information and analysis to the Internet, telecommunications, entertainment, advertising and marketing industries, announced today that Austin SEO company, ArteWorks SEO, is the winner of the first quarter “Best of .Biz” award.

Founded by CEO Matt Foster as a way to fund his law degree, ArteWorks SEO started as an Internet marketing and Web design firm in 1995, but soon shifted direction when search engine optimization (SEO) gained steam in the late 1990’s. Mr. Foster saw a market need for an SEO company that put a premium on integrity and delivered on its promises. With a focus on the future—its own and the SEO industry’s—Mr. Foster used a common sense strategy that soon had his clients at the top of every search ranking list. Recognized by as an award-winning leader in search engine optimization, ArteWorks SEO is known for achieving long-term results by keeping an eye on what's next in search marketing.

“Our .biz domain shows customers that we mean business,” said Foster. “ allows us flexibility in choosing a domain name that reflects who we are, is widely recognized, and is ranked well on the search engines. We’ve experienced tremendous success and growth using the .biz domain extension.”

Over the last 10 years, Neustar has built .biz into a quality domain space, which helps small to medium-sized businesses grow through better domain names and branding. As part of the anniversary celebration, Neustar will recognize 10 new small businesses each quarter of 2012 and let the jury of their business colleagues and peers vote on the quarterly winner.
