with a slight increase in those touting for SEO
Not sure about "slight". There's quite a lot of sleight these days. You know the type... "You can't beat capricious Google, everyone is doomed, SEO is dead, but I took on a client suffering from just the thing you mention, and now his sales are up 50%"
Classic sales patter: establish bond (in this case, commiserate with problem and show matching Google hatred), self-vouch for experience in sorting problem, de-emphasise alternate solutions. Rinse and repeat.
