    Probably over $100 Billion I'd guess. That is a HUGE industry that is largely in the shadows. Huge.

    I'd question the veracity of their 'current day' figures.
    Ibisworld, who I've always considered reliable (and indeed have relied upon) have digital agencies as a whole now at only $14bn, and web design at $24bn, so, if you accept that, I struggle to see how 'SEO' alone will be $80bn in just 4 years time.

    Someone has their figures wrong, and my bias says it's not ibisworld.

    Along with this news there will be more services popping out. But everyone will have their piece of cake.

    Does "SEO" include all online marketing spend?

    The industry has definitely widened. Now we have ecommerce sites, apps, softwares, niche sites etc. Every year so many jump in to make the money out of this and almost everyone leaves too. $80 billion might be a bit too high but it is expanding.

    AlphaGo's performance was really shocking in the match with Lee Sedol! And I think when a few years later G applies advanced AI in search engine, NO one get a chance regarding blackhat seo. Only content matters.

    Unsure if SEO will get bigger. A little maybe but not huge amounts.

    Online marketing as a whole entity? Well that's just gonna keep on trucking!
