Searchmetrics Company Information

How It All Began.

Early Searchmetrics Team

Although the company was founded in 2005, the idea for Searchmetrics originated in 2001 as founder and CTO Marcus Tober finished his diploma thesis in computer science. At the same time, Marcus also worked for a large online price-comparison website—a very competitive industry. Saving time through automation and using data to gain an advantage over competitors was absolutely key.

Marcus focused on automating SEO tasks like crawling competitors, backlink analysis, rank tracking and content optimization — manual tasks that detracted from time he could spend on more creative analysis. That early experience with SEO became the driving force behind Searchmetrics.
