A search engine optimization strategist or SEO strategist leads the company’s SEO strategy and is responsible for improving search engine visibility. One of the key tasks an SEO strategist does is improving organic traffic and organic conversion rate. Acquiring the top search position for primary keywords is what SEO strategist is focused on.

The main tasks an SEO strategist does are:

  • Develop SEO strategy, objectives, goals, and campaigns
  • SEO strategy implementation
  • Manage and guide SEO team
  • Resource allocation and budget allocation
  • Collaborate with other marketing teams
  • Tracking, reporting, and analyzing organic traffic, backlinks, and other important metrics
  • Maintain relationships with bloggers, influencers, and major drivers in the industry.

Dealing with SEO is complicated as it involves a full understanding of search engine algorithms. An SEO strategist needs a wide range of diverse skills to deliver the best results. A clear understanding of SEO, SEM, and how search engines operate are the core skills that are needed. Other essential skills needed are:

  • Strategy development and execution
  • On-page, off-page, and technical SEO
  • Content writing, storytelling, and copywriting
  • HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and programming
  • Keyword research, competitor analysis, and site audit
  • Backlink analysis
  • Design, UX, and CX
  • Analytics
  • A/B testing and CRO
  • Communication, collaboration, and teamwork
  • Project management
  • Ability to use SEO, analytics, and CRO tools.

Having experience isn’t just enough to become a top SEO strategist. It requires an understanding of SEO, a powerful skillset, and certifications. The education that you need to become an SEO strategist is a bachelor’s degree in marketing, business, journalism, or a related field. Once you have completed your degree, getting SEO specific experience is essential. Getting a strategic-level job right away is too challenging. You need intensive SEO experience and certifications to develop the right skills. Technical knowledge is also essential. You must know about SEO tools, CRO platforms, and UX tools and must have experience using at least a few of them.

Just like other strategist jobs, the average salary of SEO strategist depends on experience, skills, certifications, and portfolio. The average SEO strategist salary ranges between $50K to $73K per year. According to Salary, the average salary is well over $72K per year and it can go as high as $118K per year. PayScale has an average salary of $51K per year. This difference is mainly due to experience. An experienced SEO strategist who has worked with multiple organizations can earn well over $100K per year as opposed to an entry-level SEO strategist.

Hiring a pre-vetted SEO strategist has several benefits that you might miss when hiring directly. You can hire a pre-vetted SEO strategist in a few hours. All you have to do is check the database and hire the expert that’s right for you. It saves time. It saves a lot of resources that are spent in the job ad, screening, application interviewing, and selection. With pre-vetted SEO strategists, you quickly move to the selection process.

Pre-vetted SEO strategists are more likely to deliver exceptional results as they’re added in the directory after rigorous screening, testing, and scrutiny by the experts. You end up hiring an expert that will exceed your expectations.
