What if you owned a paid directory site and every day you received emails upon emails stating that someone wants links removed. As they stacked up in your inbox, whether they were pleasant or they were sternly demanding you cease and desist, would you just want to give up?

Late last year we set out to discover the top tools, tactics, and trends of the online marketing world. With the help of our partners, over 3700 participated in this year’s Industry Survey.
Today, Moz is proud to present the results.
Shifting demographics and salaries
This year’s data was analyzed by Dr. Pete Meyers, Moz’s Resident Marketing Scientist.
One area we’ve tracked for several years is the demographic makeup of professionals working in the online marketing industry. Among the shifts the survey has revealed is a rise in the number of women working in the field.
This year’s respondents were 28.3% female, up from 20.7% in 2010, although theses numbers indicate we still have a long way to go.
The survey also examines salaries, as indicated by the graphic below showing the median salary by role of respondents around the world. The full data set (see below) contains even more granular information.

It surfaces five important pieces of data about your business:
First, the tool shows you where you have missing listings. These are places your business should be profiled. Simply click the “create listing” button to be connected to the different platforms and begin rounding out your citations.
Here, the tool has found an unclaimed listing and gives you the ability to claim it via the “claim listing” button. In the yellow box, you’ll note that … Read the rest
