HRS was established as a hotel reservation system in 1972 by Robert Ragge in Cologne. Originally situated in a vegetable shop, the family started their business by arranging hotel rooms for business travelers around the world. Eventually, it became known as the first public hotel reservation system in Germany.


Due to the high level of competition in the hotel booking field, an outstanding website is of the highest importance. When trying to reach new potential customers, top search engine rankings are crucial for attracting them to Furthermore, HRS wants to provide even more relevant content on their website to help interested visitors with their booking decision.

Before HRS discovered Searchmetrics as the best analysis software available, the company used another tool that could only retrieve rankings. Soon, they found that this was not enough − HRS realized that they needed software that would also be able to assist them by providing optimization suggestions and in-depth analyses.


Searchmetrics offers a wide range of analysis functions to HRS and provides an excellent overview of their website performance. This flexibility allows HRS not only to control rankings, but to optimize keywords, compare the relevance and evolution of desktop and mobile usage, and analyze content. For deep keyword analysis, HRS uses the Research Cloud and the Searchmetrics Suite project area.
