NEW YORK, August 15, 2018
– Inc. magazine today revealed its 37th annual Inc. 5000, the prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, with Rankings.io, LLC debuting at #858. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment: independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early national exposure as Inc. 5000 honorees.
Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared to prior years. The 2018 Inc. 5000 (listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 15) achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. This year’s list had an aggregate revenue of $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.

From our Founder & CEO Chris Dreyer
“857 places to go…”
From our VP Steven Willi
“We would not be where we are today without our steadfast dedication to process improvement as well as our talented and hardworking employees. From the very beginning, the only thing that has remained constant in our organization is change and our people have been instrumental in helping Rankings.io meet the challenges every young company faces. I know that each day I come into work, I’m going to be collaborating right alongside people who have invested 110% of themselves into making sure this business is successful and there is no better feeling than that.”
From our Executive Assistant Matt Martin
“I think one of the keys to Rankings.io’s success is the nature of our leadership. Chris embodies that old ‘first person in the office, last person out’ mentality, but more importantly, he instills a sense of ownership in every employee. We don’t work hard just because he treats us well or pays us handsomely (although those things are certainly true); we do it because it feels like we’re working for our company, not his company. The pride he takes in the company’s successes and accomplishments isn’t self-satisfaction, but is reflected on every staff member.”
From our Marketing Director Matthew Laurin
“I’ve been working with Rankings.io in some capacity almost since its founding and I’m amazed at how far we have come as an organization. I believe our success is a combination of grit, hard work, sacrifice, and an unshakable resolve seen in both our leadership and our employees. I feel like we’ve only begun to tap the potential we have and I can’t wait to see what the future brings.”
From our SEO Director Valentina Borda
“Our success is hands down attributed to the combination of our company values, talented employees, and our always improving systems and processes. In the Rankings.io workplace, we strive for radical transparency, positivity, responsiveness, and grit. These company values not only foster an excellent team of talented employees, but cultivates the trust and proactiveness that clients need from an SEO agency.”
