Wondering how big the market is for SEO/SEM, anyone have any fresh, trustworthy, hard numbers?


Google's total advertising revenues were USD$23 billion in 2009



Too much... :) in regards to SEO. 95% of seo is in the actual planning and design of a site/application. The rest is just building backlinks and promoting.

As for SEM, I would est 95% of what google makes per year to be from that. Try researching that figure.
