research strategy

We started our research by looking for data on the exact job positions on Indeed, Glassdoor, and LinkedIn. This strategy produced few results for some positions, and a huge number of results for others. We then proceeded to manually count the number of job openings for the given positions to ensure accuracy. As for the salary ranges, we ensured that they were for full time positions by using the salary tools to choose this criteria. We also counter checked with a few salaries for part-time positions which were around half of the full time positions' salaries.

Research Strategy:

We leveraged the Indeed.com, Glassdoor.com and Linkedin.com job platform to find the currently open job positions for SEO managers, Content managers, Content directors, and SEO Analysts. In order to find the current open jobs, we used the ''anytime' job age filter on Indeed and the 'past/last month' job age filters on Glassdoor and LinkedIn. In addition to this, we were able to narrow our search on each platform by inserting 'HOUSTON, TEXAS' in the location field and also making sure it's for a full-time job by clicking the 'FULL-TIME FILTER' button. Although this full-time filter search wasn't available on LinkedIn, we made sure we read the job description to find if it was a full-time, part-time or contract position. Our focus was on the exact job title assigned, with no variance or deviation, so we had to go through them all and count up which positions matched the requested job title, as our search showed positions that were similar, but do not match the requested job title. Some job positions turned out to be unavailable on the job platform, and we believe that it was because we adhered strictly to the job title. For instance, our SEO analyst brought result like SEO specialist which we didn't include. Also, the Content director brought result like, "Director, user experience", which although is the same job description, it was a different job title so it was excluded.

For the average salary range, we leveraged the indeed.com and glassdoor.com platform to get the average salary for each city. The indeed.com platform doesn't have salaries specific to Houston, Texas but we assume that the salary range in Austin, Texas, and Houston will be the same because salaries don't usually vary by city but by state. We believe, therefore, that the salary in Texas will be general to all cities found in Texas, with little or no variance. We found the average salary listed on the Indeed and Glassdoor platforms by adding up the salaries and dividing by 2.

Calculations:

  • The average annual salary for a SEO manager in Houston, Texas is $62,520 (as listed on the Indeed.com platform) + $78,170 (as listed on the Glassdoor platform) = $140,420/2 = $70,210
  • The average annual salary for a Content manager in Houston, Texas is $56,352 (as listed on the Indeed.com platform) +$68,710 (as listed on the Glassdoor platform) =$152,888/2 = $76,444
  • The average annual salary for a Content Director in Houston, Texas is $94,589 (as listed on the Indeed.com platform) + $96,536 (as listed on the Glassdoor platform)=$191,125/2 = $95,562
  • The average annual salary for a SEO Analyst in Houston, Texas is $51,874 (as listed on the Indeed.com platform) + $53,323 (as listed on the Glassdoor platform) =$105,197/2 = $52,598

Research Strategy:

We started our research by looking for the given job positions on Indeed, Glassdoor, and LinkedIn. However, doing so resulted in a huge number of results. So we refined our search to get the exact results which largely decreased the number. We then proceeded to manually count the number of job openings for the given positions to be accurate. As for the salary ranges, Indeed did not have enough data and showed no results regarding the salary range for the positions of SEO Manager, Content Manager, and Content Director. The cells corresponding to these values have been entered with N/A due to this reason.
