Hi everyone,

Our company is looking to get a SEO company to help increase our rankings. We had one company in a few times and we are thinking about going with them. I just want to make sure I go with the right company.

They have a guarantee that they will increase our visitors by 2000/month. Also they guarantee we will rank top 10 for at least 5 of the 15 keywords we choose. Now the price they gave us included an analysis of our site, optimization consulting, search engine and directory submissions and a link exchange system. With that they will initially get us 500 links and hand submit us to 20 directories and auto submit to 200+ SE & directories.

Now I'm not sure if that sounded right to me. Like first thats only 66 visitors a day. It doesn't seem like that much of an increase to me. Also that guarantee would be with google and yahoo for top 10 ranking. If they did get us 500 links would that put in effect the sandbox issue with google and throw us up at the top 10 ranking just to loose it 2 weeks after our contract goes out?

What is everyone else opinion? Is there anything I should look out for?

Thanks for your help.

It was also a daily struggle of maintaining because as other sites do the same yours go down a notch.

Right on! it's a daily struggle to keep ahead of the other SEOers.
