10% of SEO’s work on over 200 websites each.

According to my last poll, twice as many SEOs/Webmasters work with over 200 sites than only work with 1 site.  69% of my readers work with between 4 and 50 websites, and 10% work with over 200 sites.

My last poll asked "How many websites do you work on?"

The results were:
1 site                  5%
2-3 sites           10%
4-10 sites         24%
11-50 sites       45%
51-200 sites       7%
Over 200 sites  10%

I was pretty suprised (or nieve) to think that most people were working with only 1 website…where in fact, most seem to be working with 11-50 websites and 10% of my readers are working on over 200 sites (I work with close to 400 sites).

Maybe the next time I get a call from a prospect, I should not ask "What is your URL" but rather I should ask "How many sites are you working with, and give a few of the URL’s to look at.

I wonder if the voters here work within only 1 industry, or several industries….can you imagine have 200 sites all on 1 topic?

    Jim, I didn’t realize you spoke Russian? What’s up with that?

    I don’t….but I guess someone is russia said something about this post….I seem to get a lot of bloggers from other countries blogging about some of my posts, those are trackback links….hope they’re saying good things…would hate to link back to someone calling me an ass. 😉

    The russian comment summarized your findings, commented on them as “interesting”, and posed the question: What exactly do they (that is you Jim) mean by “working with”?

    Thanks Michael!

    I’m really suprised by the amount of trackbacks I get from other countries…and I wish that the “translate this page” on the google toolbar did a better job…with most I just have to wonder what they’re saying….but I think it’s totally cool that this blog is referenced in other countries.
