How Big Is The SEO Industry In The Internet [Infographic]


I’m not a SEO expert but once in a while I blog about SEO-related stuff with the purpose of helping others learn about SEO and to share some of the new information that I learn about it. For those who aren’t familiar with SEO or Search Engine Optimization, according to Wikipedia – is the process of improving the visibility of a website or web page in a search engine’s “natural” or un-paid (“organic” or “algorithmic”), search results.

SEO is big business in the Internet. But how big exactly it is, is a question that even most people who are in the SEO industry can’t give a clear answer to. BlueCaribu, a digital marketing agency recently released an infographic called “How Big Is The SEO Industry In The Internet” which shows some statistics on the global SEO industry.

    Lol it’s pretty interesting to know that Phil is one of the top countries interested in SEO. I suppose that means were really into internet marketing and ecommerce.

    When I started freelancing actually bought a couple of books from amazon to help me learn the ins and outs of freelance writing. The art of SEO book on the pic was one of the ones I almost bought for SEO research but I figured since it’s a constantly changing field, a forum or a website on SEO might serve me better.

    Nice post.
