How the Ardour for Ardor Started
It was the small things that made the journey worthwhile.
Hi, my name is Kris Reid, founder and CEO of Ardor. I am originally from Brisbane, Australia. I studied software Engineering at the Queensland University of Technology. Pretty much, as soon as I graduated, I moved to London to work in Finance for some very big names including Euroclear and Visa Europe.
When the financial crisis hit, I lost my job as near everyone in finance and headed back to Australia with my tail between my legs. I had always built desktop applications so I wanted to learn web programming. I decided to build a simple online game called Mob Warrior. As the game came to fruition, I thought how do I get people to the website to play the game. I started to learn about search engine optimisation. This marked the inception of what will be Ardor.
05 April 2010 autobacklinkservice.com was started. This was our first backlink service. A very simple Forum Profile backlink Service. The service was working great! A few months later we acquired a domain from another backlink service backlinkservices.com. Then a few months later bluebacklinks.com.
Running 3 different brands became unsustainable. We needed to amalgamate under one brand 27th of September 2011 Ardor Backlinks was born!
Ardor Backlinks grew and grew fast
Completely remote business all with remote workers
Moved to Davao and opened our first office at Matina Crossing.
Ardor Content founded our Content Development System
Started the foundation of higher quality links under the brand Ardor Ranking
March Ardor Media Factory was launched
Focused on high quality link development
Business exploded! We quickly outgrew our office and needed a new location
Opened a 2nd office in Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Expanded our services to include full service SEO
Developed more efficiency in link building with an ever expanding team
Had significant growing pains and finding the right people
Eventually found the perfect solution with very experienced, professional remote staff in the Philippines
Continuing to expand our SEO products / services and team
This year has had dramatic change already. We’ve disbanded the Phnom Penh office with everyone in Cambodia now working remotely. We’re continuing to expand with remote workers having to leaders of our linking team working remotely, leaders of our content team working remotely and all new SEOs also remote.
Rapid growth with more people handling lead generation, full-service SEO and improved business model. We need to improve efficiency in communication and business processes.
It’s going to be a super fun and exciting year ahead with much to do and plenty to learn.
Full Stack SEO Specialist
“I’m from Toronto Canada, and have previously worked in editorial, web development, technical writing and project management. At Ardor, I bundle those skills together to develop new products, improve the workflows of existing ones, and help client websites exceed their targets. Outside of work I’m into weightlifting, creative blogging and mountain biking. Such hobbies help keep me sharp – SEO is constantly changing with new updates, trends and strategies. Every week seems like a new chapter in an ongoing adventure story”.
“Bitten by the Travel bug and happy about it. Nuts about productivity and positivity. A huge fan of internet and mobile technology. Anime Fanatic. Wholeheartedly believes that "small daily improvements are the key to staggering long-term results." Oh, and when plan A doesn't work, the alphabet still has 25 more letters. Let's stay cool!”
