The Unofficial Fraggle Rock Site was founded on Sept 25, 2000 as Subcity's Fraggle Site. This personal web site was a very small site, however, we had a combination of features that no other Fraggle Rock site had including a picture gallery, character descriptions, item descriptions, and an episode list. Fortunately, those features led to people favoring our site and we began being indexed in several major search engines averaging around 20-50 hits a day.
During March of 2001, we wanted to step it up a notch. So, we registered FraggleRocker.com, got it hosted, redesigned the site, and began a search engine campaign. Before we knew, our site had blown up. We were listed in the top ten on every search engine and getting around 100 hits a day.
After reaching 200 hits a day, I decided that it was time to take it another step further. We gave the site a whole new design, titling it The Unofficial Fraggle Rock Site v2.0 on Sept. 3, 2001 (shown to the left). It was a success, and our hits shot up to 300 a day although never putting one cent into our marketing campaign.
From watching our stats grow to around 300-800 hits a day it was time to release The Unofficial Fraggle Rock Site v3.0 during June of 2003. We began selling vintage merchandise, built a great database of information, and presented a user-friendly and professional web site. We planned on bringing Fraggle fans what they wanted and set a goal to break our current record of 2,100 hits in one day.
As of 2004, we have reached new heights. We broke our previous hits record with 2,500 hits in one day, and we are currently reaching people from all over the world including countries that have never even aired the show. FraggleRocker.com has also gone a little corporate by merging with another company to sell licensed Fraggle Rock merchandise on the site. The new product line has been a hit, and the income the site earns from the deal fully supports the expensive costs of hosting and enormous bandwidth we use.
About the Creator
Hi, I am Tyson Craemer, the creator and owner of The Unofficial Fraggle Rock Site. Born in 1982, I was a huge Fraggle Rock fan. Although I was only five when the show ended its last season, the re-runs kept me going. Of course growing up, I forgot a lot of the things that were special to me, and Fraggle Rock was one of them. But one day while browsing the internet, I came across a Fraggle Rock web site. I was instantly hooked again and decided to make a site of my own!
Currently, I am a hard working student and full-time web designer. I own a personal freelance company called Evolved Pixel Designs and work for several firms in the Miami area. FraggleRocker.com the first web site I designed and always my favorite. I plan on continuing this venture well into my professional career.
