Im looking for a national/world average. I know more and more companies are expected to spend a ton but I would like some sources that tell how much is expected to be spent on SEO. Thanks guys.

Hello Jack,

I was trying to find the article on emarketer.com. It was posted a few months back. However, the article stated that it expects Internet marketers will be spending at least $ 26 million plus on Search Engine Optimization. Social Media Marketing & Email Marketing closely followed.

You can also check out www.seomoz.org they just posted a blog about the future of Internet marketing. They got their info from forrester research. You can go to forrester research and sign up for their newsletter and they will keep you up to date on trends. You can also go to mequoda daily, they are also an online newsletter that provides great information on Interent Marketing trends.

I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
