  • For Content Director jobs, based on the Glassdoor Salary tool, the minimum average salary would be around $55,000, while the maximum average salary could be about $119,000. We do not know whether this applies to full-time positions alone.

Research Strategy:

Indeed does not allow us to search for full-time SEO Manager position salaries in the city of Chicago. Overall, in the state of Illinois, the average minimum salary for this job is somewhere around $19,000, while the average maximum salary appears to be approximately $118,000. This data has been provided in row 10 of the attached spreadsheet.

When it comes to Content Manager positions, although we can check to see what the average salary would be in the city of Chicago, there is nothing to indicate that these numbers solely apply to full-time positions. Nevertheless, based on Indeed, it seems that in Chicago the average minimum salary for this job is somewhere around $29,000, while the average maximum salary appears to be approximately $113,000.

As for Content Director and SEO Analyst positions, Indeed's salary tools do not recognize these occupations. To find out whether we could otherwise get an idea of what the average salary might be for these two positions, we went back to the job search page and looked at the companies that offered this type of jobs. Unfortunately, none of the companies in question mention anything about salaries in their job post. Although Indeed does offer an overview of the average minimum and average maximum salaries associated with specific jobs, this tool did not allow us to calculate the average salaries only Content Director and SEO Analyst positions.

There are only 2 SEO Manager positions in the Chicago area available on Glassdoor, so it was easy to get the minimum and maximum average salary for this position. However, our Content Manager job search returned more results and not all of them matched the given criteria. Therefore, we used the Glassdoor salary tool. Although we were able to find out what the average minimum and average maximum salaries were for Content Managers in Chicago, there is nothing to indicate that the data only refers to full-time positions. However, the average minimum salary for this position in Chicago is around $42,000, while the average maximum would be about $83,000. We tried to look at the individual companies instead, in order to get a more accurate view of the salary range. However, the only company that advertised a job to fully match the "Content Manager" title did not mention what salary they were offering for this position.

While there were no Content Director jobs on Glassdoor, based on the Glassdoor Salary tool, the minimum average salary for this position would be around $55,000, while the maximum average salary could be about $119,000. However, again, we cannot be certain that these numbers only include full-time positions. Additionally, it also seems that there too few reports to generate a salary distribution.

As far as the SEO Analyst position is concerned, one of the companies that matched our given requirements actually mentions their salary range on Glassdoor. At the lower end, they offer around $34,000 for this position, while, at the upper end, they offer $52,000.

Since we were looking for information available through LinkedIn, Glassdoor, and Indeed, we were unable to apply additional research strategies in order to get more accurate details regarding the salaries for each of these job titles. We used the Indeed and Glassdoor salary tools, but, given our focus on full-time positions in the city of Chicago, we decided not to include any results that excluded either of the two criteria. We did, however, mention these findings above. Definitive findings were included in the attached spreadsheet.
