Annual report number 13 + 14: My Success

Back in December of 2004 I started a new life from zero. I was 22 years old without any money, education or connections. I borrowed my mothers computer and started to learn HTML and internet marketing.

Each year I publish an annual report. Earlier reports are linked from the history section in my about page.

Selling the SEO business of TodaysWeb

As written in the earlier annual report I left my operational role of TodaysWeb when I moved to Sweden in beginning of 2016 to instead work for my swedish company Jim Westergren AB and Domainstats. Staffan became the CEO.

In April 2018 me and my family went to Malta to negotiate with Game Lounge and a deal was made in which they acquired the whole SEO business and a majority of all assets of the company but excluding N.nu and Redistats. I also became Head of SEO for Game Lounge on a 3 year contract. More details about the deal in my announcement.

Here for the first time ever I reveal just how fantastic the growth of TodaysWeb has been as a company since the start in the end of 2012 until I sold it 2018.

Domainstats

The company Domainstats International AB was registered in February 2017 and I had an investor giving 5 MSEK for 50% ownership. I set up an office in Täby and employed 2 programmers.

In October 2017 we started the major task of rewriting all the ~15K lines of code from procedural code to modern mvc. It was me and 2 other guys but I had to let one of them go in december. This rewrite also involved making a complete new design and setting up 7 new dedicated servers. It took around a year ... but we made it!

What I learned in 2017 when developing Domainstats:

Other new things in Domainstats:

N.nu

There are at the time that I write this 8 086 domains connected to N.nu websites which is great.

At the end of 2018 there were 2 swedish companies wanted to acquire N.nu but I turned them down - the future will tell if my decision was correct.

Some of the things done with N.nu during 2017-2018:
