As the World Wide Web continues to grow so does the demand for professionals with SEO skills and experience.

In fact, a recent study from SEO platform Conductor reveals that there is a 112 percent year-over-year increase in LinkedIn profiles that list SEO titles and skills, while SEO job postings on have increased by 1900 percent. But where are these jobs located and how much are these search professionals being paid? Luckily, a new Conductor infographic has the answers.

Best Cities

It is no surprise that New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles are the top cities for finding SEO jobs, however, some of the other cities positioned within the top 20 list may be a little more shocking. For example, the study found that San Jose and Cleveland both list more SEO jobs than some larger cities, like Phoenix and San Diego.

Top Titles

SEO professionals come with a variety of titles, with the most common being SEO/Marketing Manager. The study found that the next most popular title is SEO Specialist, followed by SEO Analyst/Strategist and Director of Marketing.

Average Salary

Perhaps the most intriguing part of the study reveals the average salaries for SEO professionals. While the most popular SEO job title (SEO/Marketing Manager) is compensated with an average salary of $63,978, professionals that hold the Director of Marketing title average the highest salary at $94,836.
