Thanks to all of you who completed the first Search Engine Land reader survey! We’re still tallying up the results, but here are a couple of top-line stats you may find interesting:
- Nearly 30% of you work at a search engine marketing firm or full-service advertising agency; more than 25% of you work for a company as a search marketer.
- Where did the time go? Nearly 65% of you said you’ve worked in search marketing for more than 3 years, nearly 40% said more than 5 years!
- And for our prospective advertisers, 85% of you said you approve, recommend or authorize purchases for your clients or companies.
We’ll post more of the information about our readership to the Search Engine Land advertising page in a couple weeks when we’re done crunching the numbers.
