The most important thing
to know ABOUT US,

is that we’re committed to getting people to know ABOUT YOU.

Our software

It is near impossible for companies whose websites comprise hundreds, or hundreds of thousands, or millions of pages, to manually optimize their websites for organic search. Within minutes of set-up, which requires no integration, the RankAbove platform determines where and how to improve your website’s search performance. And within hours, it lets you accomplish what takes even the most seasoned SEO agencies (and even other tools!) months to do.

Our history

When RankAbove first launched 8 years ago, companies were tackling SEO by hand or individual tool sets. SEO had taken on a reputation of vague promises and immeasurable results. Our founders, Mayer and Eli, created the first automated SEO solution, and it immediately brought transparency and manageability to the world of “big data” that is SEO. We believe the proof lies in our cadence of signing on – and keeping on – some of the most recognized brands in the world.

Our analysts

Our senior analysts have been optimizing websites for over 12 years – and have been optimizing them at RankAbove for 8! They live and breathe SEO: which elements of a website Google’s algorithm is looking for, Google’s human evaluators are looking for, how best to optimize each element, and the relative “weight” of each element when it comes to the bottom line – what will improve rankings, traffic and revenue. It is these analysts who are behind the development of our platform.

People to Know
Mayer Reich

Mayer Reich

CEO / Founder

Read bio
Mayer co-founded RankAbove after noticing a common need among customers at his search marketing firm. They all struggled to effectively optimize their websites for natural search. Two years later in 2009, RankAbove launched its platform. And the rest…is history.
Since then Mayer’s become an ambassador to the Israeli digital media sector. He’s spoken to several foreign delegations with the aim of expanding the Israeli tech footprint overseas. In 2003 he moved from New York to Israel, and lives in a suburb of Jerusalem with his wife and five (!) children. He’s obsessed with tech (and whiskey – we’re not sure which more) and cracks jokes like there’s no tomorrow.
Eli Feldblum

Eli Feldblum

CTO / Founder

Read bio

Eli dreamt up—and continues to improve and innovate—the RankAbove platform, after noticing how much better his PPC colleagues had it with their bid management platforms. He holds a visionary role in the SEO industry, leading research and introducing new search methodologies. Before founding the company with Mayer, he was Director of Marketing for Didit.com and VP Marketing at Sunny Group. Eli’s helped a long list of A-list companies make (and maintain) their names online: MTV, Match.com, American Express, AT&T Wireless, Forbes, as well as John Kerry for President 2004, and lots more. This guy is a search marketing guru if you’ve ever seen one. (We highly recommend his Need-to-Know SEO Webinar.) Eli lives (and hikes and bikes) in NJ, with his wife and two kids, and works out of RankAbove’s NYC office.

Ilana is at the helm of all things Marketing at RankAbove. Since joining the company in 2012, she’s successfully externalized the brilliance that defines us as a company, and as a technology. Ilana’s job is two-fold: she advocates RankAbove as the ultimate SEO solution, and SEO on a whole as a vital marketing solution (to those who have yet to learn!). Ilana’s marketed innovative products and technologies in industries ranging from Beauty to eCommerce. After 10 years in Tel Aviv, she’s now back in New York with a newfound appreciation for everything America has to offer, including Cream soda, Ziplock bags, Amazon.com, and so much more.

Michael leads our team of Account Managers and makes it his personal business to ensure that each customer achieve the results they signed up for, if not much greater ones. Michael joined RankAbove back in 2007, and it is thanks to him that customer onboarding, management and delivery is seamless. It is also largely thanks to him that our rate of customer retention is outstanding (if we may say so ourselves). Prior to joining RankAbove, Michael led all Marketing activities for several divisions of IDT Corporation (NYSE: IDT). A Brit by origin, Michael lives in a suburb of Jerusalem with his wife and four strapping lads.

Kalman joined RankAbove soon after the company’s inception in 2007 (yup – another old-timer!) and has played a vital role in the company’s growth. The results that he’s achieved for everyone from SMBs to Fortune 100 companies have earned him a mark as one of the most skilled SEOs in the industry. In addition to customized search strategies, he’s a master of online marketing, overall site optimization, and of spotting and investigating hidden trends in the Google results. He’s basically Sherlock Holmes. And a volunteer firefighter and medic.
