What is your job title...?
Actually I normally say Graphic Designer, web designer, Multimedia designer, web developer, programmer. A mouthful like that tends to avoid any further questioning.

These days I'm simply an 'Internet Marketing Consultant'.
Search engine marketing goes far beyond optimization. I never use the term 'positioning' because you cant 'position' a web site although you can move it up in the rankings but never have I told a client "You'll be at number 3 position for this term and number 1 position for that term".
When you throw in paid listing management, when you advise clients on email marketing, branding, web site strategy, useability issues, conversion ratios and ROI, the titles change even more - so 'Internet Marketing Consultant' seemed the best bet.
Hey, it's a 9-5 that's fun so I don't complain.
Thankfully, not too many people find that resource ON google, so I can stick to SEO management and not SEM management. Besides, SEO spelled out - just sounds more geeky.
It's good to be geek.
I hire web designers, and am happy to do so. But I know that owning FP does not a designer make...:)
That covers the broad range of services that we offer to our clients.

Whatever works for the given task. We wear many hats during our tenure. That is what the ole' hat rack is for! ;)
When talking with customers, my boss refers to me as the "computer manager", since it's a small company and I basically do all the technical computer work there (though the website is the majority of it).

Also I was hoping to get CEO on my card but got SEO instead.... ;)
It’s sad but true that titles do make a difference to ones business image - just in the same way a business address can reflect a companies standing.
Its all in the "eyes of the beholder" as they so fondly say.

UKGimp is getting close.
Gave up with the titles after the explaining the difference to the 100th agency -- they still didn't understand, but don't get me talking about agencies;(((
Guess it depends upon how much you need to impress
sole trader = CEO or MD -- in a business setting
sole trader = Web consultant -- to a client
sole trader = Has that bloody client paid yet? -- to my wife
sole trader = Dad have you finished working yet? -- to my daughter
sole trader = Coming for a pint? -- to the neighbours
How about JAWS (Just a web specialist) it's got a nice ring to it:)
some people just call me “chavo”.
i prefer to call myself “web as”, which in spanish means “web ace”; but “web as” is homophone of “huevas”, which here in mexico, translates to lazyness… so people always end up thinking i’m lazy. :o
