LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — The city of Lexington has been designated a Google eCity for the online presence of businesses located there.

Lexington is one of 50 cities across the country, one from each state, to receive the designation.

Google says the cities were chosen after analysis by an independent research firm to look at the online strength of local small businesses. The city with the highest scores in each state was designated a 2013 Google eCity.

Lexington Mayor Jim Gray says the award confirms what people in Lexington already believe — that the city has a high level of digital innovation.

Google Small Business Engagement Director Scott Levitan says 97 percent of Internet users are seeking products and services online. He says businesses that use the Web are growing twice as fast.
