Have trained thousands of people in Search Engine Optimization, it was nice to discover this infographic comprising research results in the SEO industry.
It is heartening to know, for example, that the average hourly cost of SEO services around the World is between $76-$200/hour. This is 10 times the hourly rate compared to working at McDonald's!
For 43% of SEO firms who charged on a per-project basis, their median SEO project pricing was found to be between $1,000 and $7,500.
And the most interesting data revealed in this survey was that there were a handful of SEO projects in the more matured economies like USA, UK and Canada where the SEO per-project cost exceeded $100,000!
As Google continues to unleash new Panda and Penguin algorithm updates in the attempt to thwart spammers, the SEO game will get tougher and tougher.
This is good news for those of us who continue to invest our time deepening our SEO knowledge. Because if you want to win in the search engine war, you need to ensure that you are able to create value to both Google and its visitors better than the rest of our competition.
