SEO Manager


SEO Managers are embedded into SEO client teams providing a mix of support and leadership across SEO retainers, working on a mix of analysis, campaigns and implementation for clients. They are responsible for a mix of SEO analysis and delivery including keyword research and targeting, competitor analysis, content and backlink audits as well as outreach campaigns and a number of other areas.

SEO Managers have a good grounding and understanding of SEO knowledge and act as a support or lead in delivering SEO expertise, client management, ideas, innovation and problem solving.

SEO campaigns are a team effort and SEO Managers work closely with more senior SEO team members as well as with our Technical Search and Media Content team. Together this forms a complete SEO team around a client to produce best in class SEO campaigns that deliver against client’s business goals and objectives.
