Google Inc. has named the city of Carlsbad as the “digital capital” of California in its annual eCity Awards program, analyzing the online strength of the small-business communities of all 50 states.

Working with the research firm Ipsos, Google scored cities’ small businesses on factors including use of company websites, blogs, social media, ecommerce and mobile technology. The top-scoring city from each state was named a digital capital, according to Google.

A representative of Mountain View-based Google presented the city with its award at a recent chamber of commerce event in Carlsbad.
