Welcome to WebmasterWorld Forums. Many SEO's are now moving to a pay per click system. By doing this, your clients are only paying for results, and if you are getting good click throughs, you also get compensated well. A good starting point would be to look at the popular pay per click engines to see what they are getting per click.
Utilizing this method will require some sort of logging program so the client and yourself can view the stats at any time to verify the number of clicks.

That means I am responsible for the ranking and the choice of the best keywords!
Do you now any company that is combining these kind of result oriented price modells with a startup-fee?

I am not familiar with these SEs could you give me some URLs please?
I have a suggestion myself: Comparing SEO with banner-ad we could make the following calculation:
Banners in Germany: Euro 25-50 TCP (price for thousand contacts)
50 Euro is for highly target group focussed banners. The Link on a SE Result-page is still better because the person was looking for a specific product or solution...(so there is never a higher focus)
We have a CTR of about 1% that means one visitor on the customer's site would cost about 5 Euro. (10 Visitors cost 50 Euro)
Ergo: 5 Euro for any Click on Top-listed links to customer's site. Does this sound reasonable to you??
5 Euros per click sounds very high to me, but could be right if it is a very competitive keyword in a profitable business and if we are talking of a top 3 ranking.
Like drbill I suggest that you read the entire PPC discussion from beginning to end and also the discussion about the SEO business.
btw: are you familiar with that swedish special food: it's kind of a fish they leave in wood-barrels and its fermentated? soere....fish or something. Someone told me about it and I couldn't believe..*g*
the auction is to decide whom of the customer they will toprank on a certain keyword but the pricing depends on the click.
so the auction decides who is willing to pay most for the later clicks...
