Why take part in the 2013 Survey?

Do you know how your services and fees compare to other SEOs? Ever wondered which channels other SEOs use to acquire new clients? Do other SEOs find citation building as much of a chore as you do?!

This survey aims to cast a light on issues such as these and share the findings so that we can all benefit. By taking part in the survey you help to make sure this data is as robust as it can be so that you can effectively compare yourself against the industry averages.
