LOCAL search and directory engine, produced by SPH Search, was presented with the Digital Market Award by Fast Search and Transfer, a subsidiary of Microsoft and a leading provider of search technologies at its annual conference, 'Fast Forward 09', held in Las Vegas from Feb 9 to 11.

SPH Search was one of two companies that were selected to receive the award, with described by the Fast selection panel as 'breaking new grounds'.

The award recognises companies that most effectively use search to embrace the digital economy and evolve their traditional business model to find new revenue streams and increase user fidelity.

Said Paul Jansen, CEO of SPH Search: 'The digital space has been growing phenomenally and it's only natural that people will need trusted guides to help them navigate through this. That is why we created Rednano. More than that, Rednano is also helping those not on the Internet to get on it and make money from their presence there.

'We launched just 10 months ago and Rednano traffic is growing at an encouraging average of 50 per cent month-on-month. In fact, the growth is accelerating quarter on quarter.'
