After years of working in the search engine marketing industry and grooming search professionals for large agencies, Lee Blankenship opened up his own SEM agency in Atlanta in late 2004. A true startup story, Lee founded Search Discovery out of his house and hired his first employee in 2005.
With a strong reputation in the Atlanta market as a successful search marketer, Search Discovery garnered business referrals from friends and agencies in the area. The client list continued to grow. In 2007, Lee hired his next 4 employees and expanded his agency offerings beyond paid media to include search engine optimization and web analytics.
Hiring only innovative minds and industry leaders, Search Discovery created a client performance department in 2008. To augment its existing offerings, this team focused on blending web analytics, usability, and information architecture practices to better measure online behavior and optimize toward better post-click results.
Today, Search Discovery is a leading, full-service SEO, Paid Search and Web Analytics agency. Packed to the gills with talent, the Search Discovery team is over a dozen strong and is experienced with brands such as the Atlanta Hawks, ApartmentFinder.com, Turner Broadcast Network, PGA.com and more.
