Leader in Digital Presence Management Recognized for Excellence of its Own Online Presence

TEMPE, Ariz., April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: LLNW), a leader in digital presence management, today announced it received Official Honoree accolades for its website (www.limelight.com) awarded by the Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences for the 17th Annual Webby Awards. Recognized as one of the most advanced websites in the professional services category, Limelight's own multi-channel digital presence is reflective of its vision for helping organizations present an effective and consistent story across all digital touch points.

The company used its own Limelight Orchestrate Digital Presence Platform to create an entirely revamped digital presence, including personalized content, extensive video and an engaging storytelling methodology.  The site incorporates responsive design, allowing it to display accurately and effectively on any web, mobile, social and large screen channel. The company's massively provisioned network delivers the site's content, including video, ensuring blazing speed and user experience anywhere in the world.

"Limelight's website engages the visitor with a compelling and streamlined experience across platforms," said David-Michel Davies, executive director of The Webby Awards. "We selected Limelight as an Official Honoree because we found the website to be expertly designed to not only inform, but engage and initiate interaction."

The Webbys are the leading international awards program honoring excellence on the Internet. The Official Honoree distinction is given to the top 10 percent of all work entered that exhibits remarkable achievement. Out of 11,000 entries from over 60 countries and all 50 U.S. states submitted to the Webby Awards, the Official Honoree status is awarded only to work that exhibits that of an industry leader.

"We make it our mission to help customers better engage their digital audiences. For this project, we utilized the same tools, processes and expertise we provide our customers commercially, to instead create an awesome Digital Presence for ourselves," said Kirby Wadsworth, chief marketing officer at Limelight. "Of course, I am thrilled with the Academy's recognition. Moreover, knowing the entire effort took just 90 days from start to finish makes this honor even more exciting. Having managed many complex, time-consuming website projects in my career, I was simply astounded at the speed and ease provided by these powerful cloud-based tools. I want to thank the entire team in marketing, professional services, and operations for a job well done."

The 17th Annual Webby Awards will be held on May 21, 2013 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.
