Something I have learned in my limited experience is that sometimes competitors can be of great help to you to achieve common goals. They have something to offer that is valuable or of a perceived value. After all, aren't most of us competitors here? And we manage to put that aside and help each other for mutual benefit. The SEO pie is large and for businesses that are established and have happy customers, there will not be an end to business as long as they can continue to deliver. I understand where you are coming from though and do not discount it at all.
