In November 2017 — just 8 months after launch — the website ranked well in Google searches (with over 90% of traffic coming from organic search) and surpassed 60000 monthly pageviews.
I was co-owner and one of the 2-person team that created the project. Development and server stuff were done by George Jipa. Content adding and SEO was teamwork. We also created two themes that were accepted in the WordPress.org official repository.
