Google names Norfolk Virginia’s 2015 eCity

Virginia’s 2015 eCity has been named and it is… NORFOLK!

The award goes to cities with strong online business communities. That means Norfolk is rich in businesses that use the web to find new customers, connect with existing clients, and fuel their local economies.

“Google’s selection of Norfolk as an eCity demonstrates the continuing commitment of the city and its business community to grow a responsive, inclusive, customer-focused economy that thrives not only in Virginia, but across the globe through the power of the Internet,” said Mayor Paul Fraim.

Google based its results by researching economic value provided through Google’s AdWords, website and social media presence, blogging and e-commerce from local businesses.
