Forrester Research projects U.S. consumers will spend $327 Billion online in 2016. With Google seeing over 3.5 Billion searches per day, which means every single query is worth ~$0.26. With SEO accounting for as much as 51% of the traffic being driven to B2B and B2C pages, SEO is far from dead - and continues to offer a long-term, sustainable ROI channel. Regardless of who you need to pitch SEO, your boss, your client, or even your business partner - it helps to be realistic. It's generally a bad idea to pitch an SEO campaign without first researching the keywords you're going to be targeting, and understanding who you're competing with... if you bet the farm on unattainable keywords, you're gonna have a bad time. Realistic SEO is still subjective, relative to budget, time, talent, and experience.
