The GinzaMetrics Story

The idea for GinzaMetrics was conceived in the boardroom of one of our clients.

Forty people were packed into the room to discuss the best way to scale SEO across the dozens of sites that this client owned. Representatives from the client’s brand managers, IT leaders, advertising agency and content production teams were all having a heated discussion about how to create high quality web pages in a scalable fashion and how to decide what keywords to target in the first place.

Existing solutions included either cheap one-off tools or overpriced, clunky tools and neither option provided this client with the information they really needed, when and where they needed it. It was in the middle of this discussion that we envisioned a powerful, yet easy-to-use SaaS web application to solve all of these problems in a way that took into account the complexities associated with large scale SEO projects.

Ginzamarkets, Inc. has received funding from Y Combinator (Summer 2010), 500startups, and several other seed stage VC firms, along with a number of prominent angel investors.

Today, GinzaMetrics has grown into an international product utilized by agencies, large brands, e-commerce, lead generation firms, and startups in hundreds of countries and employees in more than 10 locations. With the valuable feedback we gain from our clients, we are improving daily on a product that will transform how companies market on the web.
