The idea for Dragon Metrics was hatched in 2011 at The Egg Company, a multinational inbound marketing agency located in Hong Kong. It was working with clients such as eBay, Amazon, and Salesforce in China and throughout Asia, we discovered the need for a truly global SEO tool.
In contrast to the vast majority of SEO tools which are only concerned with English or Google-only markets, Dragon Metrics offers world-class support for Google markets, but adds a suite of exclusive features and technology specially designed for massive, yet massively underserved markets such as China, Japan, Korea, 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 and startups in over 336 cities and 47 countries around the world.
