Company History

BrightLocal was founded in 2009 by Ed Eliot and Myles Anderson.

Having spent 10+ years working for large media and internet businesses we wanted a change and relished the chance to use our knowledge to help local businesses grow through effective use of search marketing.

BrightLocal started out as a search agency providing local search services to a range of local businesses in and around London (UK). However, we soon ran into issues as we tried to grow the business and take on more customers.

We felt swamped by the scale of daily tasks facing our team. We needed to automate repetitive tasks such as running audits, tracking rankings, identifying citations, submitting to local directories, and monitoring reviews. We looked around to find specialist tools to help us but we couldn’t find any. Sure, there were lots of general SEO tools but none which focused on the needs of digital marketing agencies and local businesses.

So we decided to build them for ourselves. Then we showed them to a number of friendly SEOs in our network and the response was unanimous: “awesome…can i use them too!”

And so the BrightLocal toolset was born.

Since then we have grown to 120 dedicated staff in four countries, serving more than 50,000 amazing customers world-wide.

And the journey has only just started.
