They want someone who can design them a nice website while also optimizing it for search engines. There have always been web designers, and there have been "search engine optimization" experts for a while - but companies are now looking for the combination of both skills. Of course, it does make you wonder if things are moving in the wrong direction when people are designing websites for search engines, rather than the other way around.
