It turns out only 1 in 5 people (20.4%) in the U.S. have heard of SEO! The survey also turned up an interesting gender difference: almost 25% of men have heard of SEO, but only about 16% of women have. Doing this sort of market research in the past would have been slow, hard, and expensive. Asking 1,500 people a simple question only costs about $150.
