How rankboostup.com started, how it changed, how it evolved. Everything you need to know about us!
January 2008 - The Beginning
Rankboostup started out as Alexaboostup.com in the 1st January of 2008.
It was one of the first websites in the world which offered website traffic to website owners.
It was simple; Enter your website, your referrer and number of hits you want to receive and alexaboostup.com will deliver those hits as promised.Increasing your Alexa Rank too, which was a big ranking signal in 2008.
July 2008 - Traffic Exchange
Alexaboostup.com evolved into a full traffic exchange in July 2008, the first traffic exchange ever created.
The idea of a single place where website owners can come together and exchange their website links spread quickly and alexaboostup soon became a website with some decent traffic being exchanged.
But the first owner of the exchange decided to shut down the service due to personal reasons..
Alexaboostup ... The Parked Domain ?
After letting the domain expire, the new owner of alexaboostup.com decided it was best to use alexaboostup.com to create a website about .. boosting, Alexa Vega (a celebrity) and ... phones.
What a horrible use of an amazing domain which had a large number of backlinks because of the popularity of the first website traffic exchange.
But alexaboostup had to emergy again, stronger and better than ever. It would not be silenced for long. It was too big an idea to be confined to eternal doom as a parked domain.
Born from the Ashes in 2012 - A Traffic Exchange With Auto Surf!
Alexaboostup finally got a new owner who purchased the domain and gave it a much needed injection of creativity.
The legends say that this was the same owner that owned alexaboostup all the way in 2008, but we will never know!
What we do kow is that an auto-surf website traffic exchange was re-built on the website.
This was still early days in Traffic exchanges but they were still unfriendly and difficult to use. Alexaboostup changed all that and made it simple to understand.
2013 - New Owner New Alexa Boostup
Alexaboostup then went through a period of change with 2 different versions in just 2 years.
This was because a new owner took over the website and had some grand visions for the site.
The new owner turned alexaboostup into one of the dominant forces in the traffic exchange industry.
At this time - It was focusing mostly on Alexa Rankings and worked perfectly to increase Alexa Rankings for website owners with an easy to use dashboard system.
But a new owner was ready to take control after just a single year.
2013 - Flippa Auction
Alexaboostup was then acquired by Boostup International PTY LTD in Australia.
The Flippa auction was a grueling affair - but alas we came out the victors.
Holding the reigns to a traffic exchange which promised to be the greatest in the world!
But the task ahead was not easy. Some difficult challenges brewed for us..
2015 - Rankboostup Was Born From 'Alexa' Boostup
Alexaboostup was a brilliant website.. the best website at increasing alexa rankings.
However Alexa was changing their ranking algorithms.
There was speak of a threat that was received from a multi-billion dollar corporation because of the use of "alexa" in the domain name.
It was time to let go of the domain and the concept of Increasing Alexa Rankings..
It was time to re-invent alexaboostup.
The first step was to rename the website and start focussing more on providing a traffic exchange service rather than an alexa boosting service.
Increasing Alexa Rank was becoming more and more difficult with recent changes to Alexa Algorithms.
Rankboostup.com was still able to efficiently increase alexa rank but it was time to take the vision of the traffic exchange in another direction.
Finally a new website with a completely new dashboard was created. It was launched in November 2015 and was now called rankboostup.com
