    That is all they make? Glad I work for myself and don’t have to punch a clock for someone else.

      I was just going to say HOLY MISSILE’S – I’ve actually considered taking a job for first time since 1999 for personal/life changes, but the pay is PATHETIC. Actually, predictable I suppose based on the sheer ignorance of what serious MISSILE SEO-SEM consists of.

  • RvE

    Nice numbers. Hope it grows high in Holland too.

  • J S

    Low numbers are for the working level marketing people. The big salaries are at the Director level. Typical pattern and amounts for any Fortune 500 corporation.

    The workers in the “strategiest” catagory .. are they technical degreed programmers and developers or just a mid-grade between link-farmers and managers?

  • George

    Thanks for the good survey and detailed list of SEO salaries but these salaries are very less according to the profile and hardwork used by Seo’s . SEO is one of the most difficult profession in this world because you are directly competing the #1 company of World is GOOGLE and you have to be update on very frequent basis to rank in SERP.
