    How much you guys spend on SEO per month?

    I am trying improve my site page rank 2 to page rank 4.

    I not sure how much I need spend per month roughly, domain is about 1 year old.

    My previous domain is 5 years old, I just migrate to this domain and google know about it.

    MY question is how long to actually rank up to page rank 4 from page rank 2 with how much spending should I make?

    What difference would that make? Personally maybe $20 on good months, usually nothing. The next guy can be blowing $10,000.

    Your questions are impossible to answer.

    Yep how much other people spend on SEO is irrelevant.
    How much is a SEO service worth to you?
    How much are your Keywords worth?
    How much are you likely to earn if your site is No1?


    Hold on, why are you talking about page rank?

    How's it impossible if you just answered it.
    Everyone has different ranges as you pointed out, maybe that's why he asked.
    Of course nobody is going to answer it, though.

    Because answer of "$0-$10,000+" is of no use to anyone. There's no exact figures that one could give to OP so they'd get what they want.

    I do my own direct SEO and it costs me nothing except a Fiverr gig every now and then or if someone is running a special promotion then I will use that service. It's always a good idea to mix it up a little.

    I have all of the software tools that I need and have probably spent thousands of dollars over the last 5 years. Some tools you can get for free but the best ones are paid and you get reliable updates such as with GSA, Scrapebox and others.

    So if you don't have the money to pay for an SEO service, you can easily learn how to do it yourself. You just have to put in the time and learn. There are a lot of free ebooks and methods you can download here on BHW.

    There is really no definitive answer to this question, it all depends on the campaign budget. A good infographic campaign can along go well over $300

    Right now I spend $800 / month to outsource then about $200 / month for my own tools / server / etc.

    So it's around $1000 / month if you really must know.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    I think that you are missing the mark in your thinking here. $ or £ spent on SEO is one thing to rank a site but to work to achieve page rank as opposed to ranking in the search engines is money that is probably not well spent.

    I'm not going to get into how much is spent by myself or those on my team because that is a moot point as some would have one site with an easy niche and want to rank a couple dozen KWS and others may have 40 sites in tough niches ranking tens of thousands of KWs.

    I dont understand why spending money and effort to grow PR? What about instead of doing this, work to grow the traffic. PR wont get you more money thats for sure.

    I have websites with PR 0 and are making 4-5k/mo. IMHO ur strategy is wrong.

    Exactly ! Why spend money to rank up the PR? Are you having any future strategy like flipping or using it for PBN etc? If not ,then directly jump on learning SEO and implement. SEO you cant be gauged with money, you just go one doing and on day you will see yourself to be doing $10000 SEO all by yourslef .. Then you can then put that amount of money to set things within a setup and go on building more vast array of sites.

    I do my SEO myself, and when I convert it to working hours, it is like $300 a month. Not too much, but for me enough to get what I need. Outsourcing could be cheaper, but I prefer it done this way.
