The results are in and I couldn’t be more excited to announce Inc. Magazine has once again named WebiMax one of the 500 fastest growing companies in the United States. Coming in at #104, WebiMax is proud to be recognized among a prestigious list of U.S.-based, privately held, and independent companies for the second consecutive year.
Apart from the criteria listed above, companies were chosen for the list based on their growth the past three years. The September issue of Inc. Magazine shows that WebiMax experienced a 3,367% growth during that time and accumulated $8.7 million dollars in 2012 revenue. These numbers wouldn’t be possible without the best group of online marketing minds in the business and fantastic clients.
When I started WebiMax in 2008, we were a start-up with four people. Today, we employ 125 online marketers and are recognized both nationally and internationally for a full array of Internet marketing services.
The most exciting aspect of the Inc. 500 list is where we are headed. We are stronger than we have ever been as a company. I am very fortunate and proud to have developed a team of dedicated, experienced and driven employees. Without the team that WebiMax has built, we would not be able to accomplish the accolades we have received. I look forward to what is to come in 2013 and beyond. Our focus is around growing new channels of opportunity and expanding our reach on an international scale.
Be sure to grab the September issue of Inc. Magazine for the full list, and contact us anytime to learn about the people and services that make us one of America’s fastest growing companies.
MOUNT LAUREL, NJ (AUG. 23, 2012) – Inc. magazine this week ranked WebiMax No. 1 in New Jersey as the fastest growing private company on its 31st annual Inc. 500 | 5000 list. There are approximately 153 New Jersey based private companies on this year’s Inc. 500 | 5000. The full list of top companies in New Jersey can be found here, courtesy of Inc. magazine. In addition, WebiMax ranked No. 37 overall in the United States, with a three-year sales growth of 5,651 percent.
Kenneth Wisnefski, New Jersey-based entrepreneur and founder / CEO of WebiMax, said “I am pleased to announce WebiMax is the fastest growing private company in New Jersey according to the Inc. 500, a highly reputable and respected name worldwide in publications.”
Wisnefski founded WebiMax in 2008 as a small startup and has since grown the company to employ more than 300 New Jersey residents in its four year history.
The 2012 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 21 to November 15 and on Inc.com), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. To make the cut, companies had to be founded in 2008, and have achieved a staggering minimum of 770% in sales growth. The Inc. 500’s aggregate revenue is $15.7 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,431 percent. The companies on this year’s Inc. 500 employ more than 48,000 people and generated over 40,000 jobs in the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 500 | 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at http://www.inc.com/500.
“We work with more than 800 clients worldwide and employ over 100 employees in our company headquarters, based in Mount Laurel, New Jersey,” states Wisnefski. “WebiMax’s growth is a result of our highly innovative products and services offerings, in addition to our success in delivering high quality services to our clients.”
While the company has always been headquartered in New Jersey, Wisnefski indicates that he has been approached by other towns and municipalities across the United States to relocate WebiMax but Wisnefski continues to turn down these opportunities.
“Ever since 2009 when our growth skyrocketed nearly 1,000 percent, year-over-year, WebiMax has received generous offers to relocate our business however we remain based in New Jersey and will continue to operate out of this great State,” states Wisnefski. “Being the number 1 fastest growing private company in New Jersey is an honor for us and I thank those at Inc. magazine for this accolade.”
The 2012 Inc. 500 | 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2008. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2011. The minimum revenue required for 2008 is $100,000; the minimum for 2011 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons.

Google Inc. claimed last week that rival Microsoft’s search engine Bing stole their search results. A report surfaced last Tuesday, February 1, when Google claimed they ran a trap operation to test if Bing had in fact stolen their results. And of course, what happened? The mouse got caught! Google changed their search algorithms to display fictitious website in their search results for bogus words such as “hiybbprqag” and “mbzrxpgjys”. When they used Bing to search for these scrambled words that would have made Noah Webster have a heart attack, the same exact search results populated on Bing and they did Google.
Anyone could imagine the look on the Google search team’s face when they noticed the results. Because of this, Amit Singhal, a member of the Google search engine algorithm team labeled Bing “cheaters”. A Microsoft spokesman quickly responded in an online Blog that this was “nonsense” and Bing “does not copy Google search results”.
This is not the first time Google’s ears perked up over this. In October 2010, Google claimed there was a significant overlap in the top 10 search results of random search terms as there was in Bing. This early onset of actions gave Google some months to test their hypothesis and it looks like they stated their conclusion very clear last week.
Bing’s response to these accusations is that they use many opt-in programs including the Bing toolbar, which helps them “clickstream data” which is a common tool used to rank websites.
More reports should surface in the coming weeks. These allegations and the he-said she-said chatter almost seems like the two heavyweight boxers performing their typical stare-down contest when they are weighed in weeks before the match. It seems like right now we’re all just waiting for the fellow in the tuxedo to come into the ring and announce who’s in which corner.
