If you are asking why do I need paid search or marketing automation certificates if I will be applying to a SEO job? SEO for most companies is one piece of the whole marketing landscape that includes in most cases, social media marketing, PPC, SEO and marketing automation. SEO specialists will be working closely with other digital marketing channels and they need at least a basic understanding of how those other channels work. The other benefit of having PPC certificates is that smaller companies tend to hire one in-house marketing individual to manage all their digital marketing channels, being at familiar with the PPC channels will increase the number of jobs you can apply to.

SEO certificates are not must to gain SEO knowledge, all the information your need to learn SEO is available online however they can help you with three things:

  • As the education system is not caching up yet they will give you some credibility and increase your chances to land an SEO job
  • They will streamline your learning curve and test your knowledge
  • They will increase you commitment level to learn SEO and chase it as a career especially if you pay for some of those courses
