Don’t you wish if someone would have told you what to expect when you first discovered this fascinating career choice? A lot of professionals started their career not knowing anything about SEO. If you had always taken the Internet and Google for granted, thinking that you would just enter a query, and get a response – Its time for you to dicover what’s beneath it.

What is SEO?

SEO – Search Engine Optimization is the art and science of optimizing your web pages to be found by the search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing etc. But why part art, part science?

The science part of SEO deals with technology and all the engineering & technicalities of a website such as code, information architecture & user experience etc.

While Art is all about understanding the business, and the customer behavior and try to positively influence it by adding value to them (in the form of a product, service or a solution) and getting value in return (as leads, sales or branding).

SEO plays a vital role in scaling up sales and accelerating the growth of a completely online business (such as or an offline business (such as KFC).

Why SEO industry is growing?

Is SEO recognized as a career?

Just like CCNA, MCP, OCJP and other professional certifications; for Digital Marketing (SEO is a part of Digital Marketing) we have International certifications from Google and Microsoft. That is a clear indication of the demand and future growth of this field. In fact marketing spend is slowly shifting from traditional media such as newspaper, TV, billboards and tele-calling (channels which are interruptive in nature) to Organic SEO and Social Media.

What skills are needed for a career in SEO?


As I already mentioned SEO is a mix of art and science, so if you come from the science background and are technical skilled, SEO can add a lot of value to your CV by making you get in touch with the practical aspect of the business. SEO helps you grow as a professional and learn new skills related to people management and internet marketing strategy building.

In case you come from the art / commerce background, then SEO may appear a little complicated due to the entire technical skill requirement. The good news is that – most technical aspects of SEO are easy to learn & implement.

SEO is a logical step ahead if you come from marketing or advertising background

The Web has changed the way companies do business, so to some extent today’s marketers and advertisers need to have at least some SEO knowledge if they want to be successful. SEO is also a great career for linguists, BBA, MBA, Statisticians & passionate writers.

Some Ugly Aspects of SEO field

Being dependent on search engines

In any career; except Government Jobs 🙂 there are many things that are outside of your control. Similarly for SEO its the dependence on Search engines. They frequently change their algorithms and what’s worse – these changes are not made public, so even the greatest SEO masters admit that they make a lot of educated guesses about how things work. It is very discouraging to make everything perfect and then to learn that due to a change in the algorithm, your sites dropped 100 positions down. If you want to have a long-lasting career in SEO field, you must learn to adapt yourself every week.  You must be patient as results are not instant between implementation and gratification.

Having no fixed rules

Probably this will change over time but for now the rule is that there are no rules – or at least not written ones. You can work very hard, follow everything that looks like a rule and still success is not coming. Currently you can’t even rely on bringing a search engine to court because of the damages they have done to your business because search engines are not obliged to rank high sites that have made efforts to get optimized. During the 2007 / 08 ; Google PR(PageRank) was everything and link building could guarantee results. You could build ‘x’ number of links with ‘y’ number of PR and most likely predict ‘z’ as the result. but ever since the Google Algorithm (Panda & Penguin) updates have come – the competitive landscape had shifted drastically.  A lot of sure-shot methods and formulas are either no longer used in the field, or no longer relevant.

  • Good article, a motivational one. Your SEO practitioner salary summary seems not reliable, because I have been seeing companies who are budgeting upto 8 Lakhs for a SEO manager, I remember rejecting offers from various companies, the least package which I got offered was 4.5 lakhs, with these facts it makes me feel kind of hard to agree with your salary summary. What do you think?

        • Dear Roshan, People misunderstand Online Marketing with Digital Marketing. They aren’t the same. Any Marketing is all about 2 things – The Message & the Channel or Medium. Digital Marketing gives more transparency and accountability to marketing spends – unlike TV & Newspaper Ads any Brand can “measure” what was the reach, engagement with the audience for the Ad. Thats why year on year budgets are shifting from TV & Newspaper to Digital channels. Digital Marketing is the future of Marketing. And the best part is – whether you are a management, Arts or a Engineering student; there is ample room for career growth in all of the 3 disciplines.

    Elbi Reply
    • Hi Elbi,

      There is tremendous opportunity in the Digital Media space. If you want to be on the Technical side of it – then you can either learn to develop Facebook Viral Apps, Mobile Apps for visitor engagement or learn the 4 popular CMSes so that you can deliver on-page SEO to your clients. Digital Media is a Mix of both Technical and Non-Technical skills and ideal for people who are not interested in hard core programming.

      Good luck

  • I have done Masters in Commerce and currently working as a SEO Executive in Mumbai, handling 5 projects and getting only 16k per month. I have 6 years of experience and accomplished both SEO trends (On page SEO and Off page SEO). I have also started building PPC campaigns (creating ads and managing) since 6 months. I have apprehension of using google analytics, webmaster, keyword tools, sitemap-xml, etc. What do you think about my experience and my background?

    Dolly Reply
    • Hi,

      If you are having 6 years of exp – then your current salary is low. I strongly suggest that you go for Google certification. Also, SEO constitutes just 15% of the entire Digital Marketing. Invest some time and money in learning the other 85% and more importantly understand how the Digital Marketing mix works for different industries. Don’t be a generalist, strive to be a specialist in your field.

    • Hi,

      Apart from SEO, there are different other “channels” & Tools in Digital Marketing such as – Social Media, Paid Search, Display Advertisement, Analytics, Mobile Marketing, Email Marketing. So the question you should be asking to yourself is – how to leverage one channel with another to best returns on investment. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

      Digital Marketing is a mix of Creativity, Art and Technology. So people from programming background help marketers in web design, landing page creation/ testing, data visualization, social Apps and many other activities. The typical salary for a 2 years old “techno-marketer” would not be less than 30-36k per month in Tier 1 cities.

  • its a really nice article. me too stumbled upon seo recently and have been thinking if I can make a career in it. I wanted to know, what role i would play with it or if it is a field, i could make a meaningful career for like 5 or 10 years.
    as of now, i know that i like building websites, have flair to learn to build passive income streams from them, help people build websites that make money, write good content. mayb as per ur advice, networking is the only thing i should do.. attend seminars or something.
    main problem happens when i am desperate to switch because the current career i am in sucks. kind of eats out the peace in u. but, i can wait.. would working for an seo firm help in achieving any of my goals? only then, it makes sense to move…

    would like to hear more from u.

Of course now, DM looks like most suitable opportunity for one with creative and dynamic skills but what about the competition. As of now need and demand for digital marketing is increasing soon there will be huge competition.
