Yeah I have hired and fired many SEO firms in my time. Cookie cutter responses are everywhere.
We "out source" single components of it.
And too play to close to the "rules" you might find that you are getting hammered bye those that "really" know how to bend them.
I just had a guy on the phone giving me a sales pitch and ask him why his site was only PR 3 he said " whats PR? LOL I said get back to me when you have an Answer for Penguin. (which confused the hell out of him, it took about 5 goes to even get the word.)
internetheaven I like that methodology. Give them the facts and vet the answers from that. If they don't pick up the 24 th April ( which was not the greatest day for a couple of my sites.) then move on.
You have to have at least a base knowledge to be able to even ID someone whom can help.
I'm looking now and its not easy. As soon as you mention you have been doing SEO for many years they tend to move on.
