Westborough – The town of Westborough will be feted tomorrow at the South Street Diner by Google as the digital capital of Massachusetts.

According to Samantha Smith, a Google representative, Westborough will receive the eCity Award for its position as the strongest online business community in the state.

The company, along with independent research firm, IPSOS, analyzed the online strength of local small businesses in cities in all fifty states, she said.

“We looked at a variety of factors to determine the leading cities and towns across the U.S., including the likelihood of small businesses to have a website, use a blog, promote themselves on a social network, sell goods directly from their webpages and whether they had a mobile-friendly website,” she noted. “The winning cities exhibited strong engagement and potential for growth within the digital economy.

To acknowledge this award, Google will be sponsoring an event at the South Street Diner,?40 South St., from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The diner was chosen, according to an email, for its “great digital footprint.” Food items will be given away during the event and local and state officials, including US. Rep. Jim McGovern, are anticipated to attend.
