What really is the meaning of an SEO Specialist? That is the big question, and it’s funny when they ask me -- what do you do for a living? there’s always a debate in my head on how to answer the question. Should I say: “I’m an SEO” and wait for my friend confused look?
Perhaps I should go with my wife’s answer, instead: “He organizes the search results for the website to get high rankings on Google.” You have to admit, anyone who can organize the search results is probably pretty cool.
Should I keep my answers brief, or should I take a little time and educate them a little bit about the awesomeness of SEO?
Many professionals during these days still realize it is difficult to explain to somebody in a completely different field specifically what they are doing or their expertise.
Then again, when my mother, a teacher, comes home and tries to share stories and challenges from her day, I feel like she’s speaking a foreign language. So maybe it’s the same for any profession.
In the SEO field, however, communication and clarity are important.
Hopefully, I will clearly answer the question: “What is an SEO Specialist?
SEO Specialist Definition
According to FreshGIGS, “Modern SEO specialists know that search engines are placing increasing value on quality content – which will invariably increase traffic to a site.“
I also found a video clip in youtube that explains what an SEO Specialist mean. Check this out!
Search Engine Optimization ( SEO ) is helping us to find products or services on the internet, Whether you are using Google or Bing. Those are the Search Engines that are showing us the results.
For me, an SEO Specialist is the one doing the optimization of the pages of the websites so that the search engine will label them as Good Quality content and reward these pages on the top of the search results.
Being an SEO specialist is tough because the search engines are always creating and changing their algorithms or the way they qualify a page to be on the top results. So the SEO specialist must keep up always on what is the latest update on the algorithm.
Take a look at the search result now for “Bayawan SEO Services“:
As you can see that the keyword “Bayawan SEO Services” -- Wpgio.com is ranking #1 on the search results. But before that, it will show you some advertisement.
The SEO Specialist will optimize your page to the top #1 result on specific keywords. Before you can just create an article publish it to add some keywords with Bayawan SEO Services then you are in the top results but now it is difficult.
For example, you want to rank in a different keyword like “Spanish Bread”, Then there is a lot of competition out there. Before you compete you should check first if your website has Domain Authority, Trustflow, And enough backlink signal that saying your content for Spanish bread is the most top of all content to be in the #1 results.
How much do SEO specialists make?
According to PayScale. The Average search engine optimization (SEO) specialist salary is ranging to $40,000 to $50,000 a year.
Now it is just an estimation on how much they are earning in a year. Mostly not all, I am seeing an SEO Specialist with other skills. So if you want to become one. Then you should be hungry for the task.
I am also teaching on how to become an SEO specialist, you should check out my articles about SEO.
Do I need an SEO specialist?
If you have a website and you don’t know how to do the SEO to increase your traffic on your website then the answer is “YES“.
If you have a website and too busy to do the Optimization of your website then the answer is “YES“
If you are like me? The very hardworking and fast learner then probably learning the basic in Search Engine Optimization will take you around a month. But the results are not just overnight. SEO is a long process but when you succeed you will have the best feelings in your life. You can harvest a bunch of traffic every month.
Is SEO a good career?
For me, SEO is not just a career. You must be passionate about it if you want to succeed. Learning SEO for your digital marketing will be the best way to start.
You can bring very good importance to a company if you can give them a million traffic on their website for free. You can bring paid traffic but it will cost you a lot of money. But in SEO, you need good content and optimize it for the users. Then Google will reward you for that effort.
More traffic means more leads. SEO is the best career for me.
