Help me ask for a raise!

I have tried to do some research on my position, but my position is a weird one. Lemme describe it.
Basically what I do is internet research on professionals for a kind of "consumer reports" magazine for professionals, which eventually gets produced by my company in a magazine which provides rankings of these professionals. Some of it is heavy data entry kind of stuff, but it involves alot of qualitative judgements about a particular person's skills. I also recommend stories to the editorial board. Additionally, I do customer service - talking with marketing directors of major law firms and answering their questions.
The company is doing well, expanding into other markets so quick that new responsibilities will definitely appear. Though my manager was planning to hire more people, since the job seems to be getting done quickly enough - partially due to me - she hasn't.
1. How would one determine the salary for this position? Closest thing I got is "data entry specialist" from salary.com.
2. What's the best way to make my case?
