In Memory of Hamlet Batista


There are no words to describe the grief and profound sadness that myself and so many others feel at the news of your passing. My heart and all of my love go out to Odette, Ethan, Josh, and the rest of your beautiful family.

You were the most kind, gentle, giving, and compassionate friend. You were an inspiration to so many. You shared your knowledge so selflessly and it was clear how much you enjoyed helping others learn and succeed.

Here are some words about you from Maura, who I know you loved *so* much, and from your incredible Ranksense team:

"Hamlet was an incredibly gifted individual. A U.S. Genius visa holder, he migrated from the Dominican Republic and co-invented Altruik’s Page Priority, an enterprise-level SEO software product that pioneered automated resolution of site architecture issues. Later he founded RankSense, our agile SEO platform that accelerates the typical SEO process. He was a visionary thought leader and inventor; a renowned SEO expert; a respected speaker; an author; an entrepreneur. More importantly, he was a thoughtful, patient and warm leader who put together an extraordinary team that will remain dedicated to driving his vision for better enabled, better connected customer platforms that link products, companies and cultures.

No words can express our sorrow over Hamlet’s passing, or our gratitude for having walked with him.  We’ve lost a humble, generous, brilliant soul, a mentor and a friend, but his legacy of service and excellence lives on in our team, in our dedication to you as our customers and as part of the tech and SEO ecosystem that he loved so much.

Let’s remember his light and keep his family and loved ones in our hearts as we navigate these difficult days.

- Maura Loew and the RankSense Team"

I feel so blessed and honored to have called you such a close friend.

Let's raise money in Hamlet's honor to help support his family during this difficult time. 100% of all donations will go directly to Hamlet's family.
