The Town of Ocean City has another award to add to the mantle, as Google recently named the resort town a 2013 eCity winner. The Google eCity Award recognizes the strongest online business community in each state, according to Google’s website.
“This is another positive example of how our community is thriving, both online and off,” said Ocean City Mayor, Richard Meehan. “Our local business owners do a great job connecting virtually with our visitors and our residents to promote all of the wonderful things Ocean City has to offer.”
Google worked with an independent research firm, Ipsos MORI, to analyze 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.
