    How many hours do you guys work on your sites per week?


    No.
    I mean work.
    I dont mean do something and then coming and plebbing on the forums.
    I mean solid focused and uninterupted seo work.

    about 10 minutes. Unless i have a new site to build or new pages to put up, then in that case, its a matter of seo'ing those pages, putting them up then leaving them alone.

    If you consider getting backlinks (or searching for good ones) part of the seo process, then probably add another 10 minutes a week to that for my existing sites... lol...
    Although i do have an offline business that takes up 10-12 hours of every day.

    heh.. i spend more time on seochat than actually seo'ing my sites..

    On average, about four hours per day - seven days per week - I am addicted. This is content writing and normally yields two or three pages of original content on a good day. (not quite solid... i work to a stopping point then take a quick break... write a couple of paragraphs or do a little research then go do something else for a few minutes - check email, refresh a forum thread - then switch back to work)

    Truly working on the site I spend about 1 hour per day. However, when I go on a backlink or email campaign I have spent 10 hours a day for many days in a row. When there is work to be done... I get it done. If not, I am continually upgrading my knowledge on the forums and other places on the Net.

    Am i the only one that does 16+ hours a day on here?

    I can see how you do only one hour wit becuase you seem to do it as a hobby but Egol, how do you get away with 4 hours a day?

    I suppose what i lack in knowledge i make up in hours.
    I am very suprised at some of your answers.

    The rest of the day is consumed by other things... responding to tech questions from website customers (an hour or two - but sometimes this produces new content)... researching, prospecting, snooping for ideas (a couple of hours)... and I teach at a university nine months per year (and that activity is also a content source).

    I spend an hour and a half a day. I don't have any purely AdSense sites (in fact I use AdSense pretty infrequently). I imagine if that is your business you may need (or can) spend more time.

    The more SEO time I do, the busier we get, the more that needs to be done (orders, customer service, offline marketing), the less time I can allocate to SEO.

    I have stepped up my PR efforts in order to diminish my reliance on SERPs. Eventually this will get me out of the SEO circle and allow me to budget an exact amount each day for SEO.

    I am the same way as EGOL -- addicted. I add content, tighten up design, work on SEO, do directory submission, approve directory submission on my sites, approve article submission, add to article section, add to directory, etc.

    I spend 4 hours a day (7 days a week) working on my own projects.
    I work 16hr/week for my primary SEO client. The rest of the time is spent working for other clients and keeping me updated on the knowledge areas relevant to the work I do. Last week I tracked over 80 working hours, somehow I still got plenty of time to my wife and daughter.

    I work on my sites 7 days a week however i dont have the concentration to spend more then 3-5 hours in one sitting...usually have lots of breaks in between but usually try and do at least 8 hour day if i can but being self employed i work when i feel like it.

    Probably about 2-3 hours per day on just SEO work - building content, backlinks, etc.

    The rest is usually spent on business management, customer service, forums, new concepts & developments, etc.
