The Google eCity Award recognizes the strongest online business community in each state. These cities’
businesses are using the web to find new customers, connect with existing customers and
fuel their local economies.
Google and independent research firm Ipsos MORI analyzed the online strength of local
small businesses in cities in all 50 states. The city with the highest scores in each
state was designated a 2013 Google eCity.
Across the country, businesses that are online expect to
grow 40 percent faster.
