    Question What percentage of the time you spend working on your sites is for SEO purposes?

    In a forum thread started yesterday by the-millionaire the following question was posed: "How much money you spent per month for seo?"

    The posts in response (there are about 20 of them one day later) indicate that most folks don't spend cash on SEO. But clearly many folks do devote time and effort to SEO.

    So, for this week's poll question I thought I would ask what percent of the time folks spend working on their sites is spent on SEO activities? And, please share what activities you spend time on where your principal rational is the results you hope they will produce in terms of better SEO.

    The potential list is long. Link exchanges, search analysis, ensuring links on your site are canonical, cross-linking projects between pages on your own site or sites, content and site structure created specifically with the SEO benefit in mind, etc. And then there are other sorts of activities that you might do half for SEO and half for folks once they get to your site. A lot of content work might fall in that category - in which case I would say count it 50/50 if half your motivation for the work is getting folks to your site through the SEO it generates and half is for visitors having a good experience once they are there.

    You need to expand the options at less than 10%. I'd have marked up less than 1%

    0% of time because I have various seo companies that work for my websites in content and backlinks.

    With me getting back in to it there is a lot that has changed and it seems to me a perfect time to get back in it. So with that I will be spending much more time in this area. I enjoy it like puzzles lol

    When I first make a website, I spend about 50% of the time working on SEO. I want to make sure I get the title and description as correct as possible, as well as what structure would give me the best SEO results in terms of header tags, internal menu links, etc Once the site is complete, I spend less about 10% of the time on SEO (which also includes link building).

    I don't think I have ever spent more than 10% of time for SEO. However, I have always tools to automate that job as much as possible. If I hadn't used the tool I would have required perhaps 20-30% of my time for SEO.

    Scouring the web I see many sites lacking basic SEO. I am talking about the basics like a page title, description, robot txt, some kind of content etc... These are usually companies who hire someone to build a $200 website. And you know you get what you paid for. I have seen sites with nothing on the front page expect pictures.

    For most of us here at least we know the basics.

    Just a thought
