History[edit]

Oleg Shchegolev and Dmitri Melnikov started out as SEO enthusiasts, interested in industry developments and new technologies, and wanted to create a tool to identify market trends and industry best practices.[10]

The software was released as Seodigger before becoming an extension of Firefox, then renamed SeoQuake Company in 2007,[14] before landing on SEMrush. In 2016, the software broke the one million user mark with customers in more than 100 countries.[10]

In April 2018, the company received $40 million in funding as part of a financing transaction co-led by venture capital firms Greycroft, E.ventures and Siguler Guff, in preparation for its expansion into various platforms of research, including those owned by Amazon, Microsoft, and Baidu.[15][16]

In June 2022, the company launched a beta tool for content generation called Content Outline Builder. The tool will suggest ideas on article writing and blog posts.[21] SEMrush also announced on June 27 2022 that their Backlinks insights data is now integrated with SurferSEO, a marketing tool focussed on content creation.
