The idea for Dragon Metrics was hatched in 2011 at The Egg Company, a multinational digital marketing agency with offices throughout Asia Pacific. It was working with clients such as eBay, Amazon, and Salesforce in China and throughout Asia where we discovered the need for a truly global SEO tool.
In contrast to the majority of SEO tools which focus on English or Google-dominated regions, Dragon Metrics offers world-class support for Google but adds a suite of exclusive features and technology specially designed for massive, yet massively underserved markets such as China, Korea, Japan, and Russia.
Today, Dragon Metrics is used by some of the biggest multinational companies and global agencies in the world, as well as small to mid-sized businesses in over 50 countries around the world.
