In late October 2006, the owner of [[Directory:Centiare|Centiare.com]] reached out to Kohs to form a partnership that resulted in Kohs promoting and marketing the alternative wiki directory at Centiare.  This effort gained strength through early 2007, but ultimately began to fade.  When Centiare's owner opted to pull the plug on the site, Kohs negotiated a transfer of the entire contents of Centiare.com to MyWikiBiz.com.  Thus, MyWikiBiz has undergone a substantial re-branding and re-purpose from its original mission.

[[Image:MWB article traffic.jpg|right|thumb|325px|Daily views of ''MyWikiBiz'' on Wikipedia]] Wikipedia articles about MyWikiBiz have gone through several stages of creation, deletion, and resurrection.  In 2007, an old version of the article failed to assert sufficient notability, but because many more sources had appeared by August 2008, one Wikipedia administrator named "Neil" believed that his rewritten version of the article met all the necessary criteria: being ''neutral'', ''reliably sourced'', and asserting ''notability''.  A few Internet trolls who inhabit Wikipedia attempted to block the article's publication, but level heads prevailed, and the article [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MyWikiBiz persists on Wikipedia].  MyWikiBiz promptly issued a [http://www.prlog.org/10111841-mywikibiz-gains-entry-into-largest-encylopedia.html press release] to commemorate the accomplishment.  Traffic from Wikipedia to MyWikiBiz witnessed a dramatic increase, thanks to Neil's efforts.
