In the early days of search engine optimization, SEO had a hazy, poorly understood role in companies. Now, however, companies are understanding SEO's importance in helping them stand out and boost business.

Two-thirds of marketers say their budgets for SEO grew in the previous year, according to stats cited in the following infographic by Mavenlink. And an increased budget means companies can give SEO a more vital business role.

For example, 60% of marketers say the natural search team headcount will increase in 2013. By comparison, 45% said the natural search team headcount increased in 2012.

Moreover, 63% of executive teams say their familiarity with SEO business and metrics has increased in the last year.

So, what's the future of SEO, according to marketers? The top 5 search goals for marketers in this new years are to...

  1. Improve content development strategy
  2. Scale keywords
  3. Improve on measuring ROI from search.
  4. Increase social presence in the SERPs
  5. Have deeper analytics

    It's good to see that more of the C-suite feels they've got a better handle on SEO and SEO related projects. I think a lot of the red tape with enterprise SEO comes from the fact that not everyone really understands what is going no with SEO, or what kind of results they should expect to see. When you know just the basics of SEO you have a better idea about what is going on.
