80% Say SEOs Need Some Coding Abilities

Last week we asked if SEOs need coding capabilities based on a controversial Sphinn thread. The results are now in and I am surprised to see just about 80% of the responses said that to be considered an SEO, you need some coding abilities.

Here is the break down of results for the question, Do You Need Coding Skills to be an SEO?

:: Yes, Some Coding Abilities To Be Called An SEO said 100 respondents or 65% :: No, No Coding Abilities To Be Called An SEO said 33 respondents or 21% :: Yes, Expert Coding Abilities To Be Called An SEO said 21 respondents or 14%

I would have thought more would say that SEOs need no coding experience to be labelled an "SEO." Of course, having coding skills helps, but a requirement?

Forum discussion continued at Sphinn.
