Default Does Anyone Know About This Company?

I have heard from a friend about a Company that does SEO and charge per results only, does the on-page, content etc, charging only for the rankings achieved but has someone here actually used it? I am not sure if I can post the URL here please sorry if its not allowed: carlosmarruffo.com.

I came to the site and spoken to a guy who sent me a prices table for some keywords I wanted and told me I will have to pay when the keywords reach Top50, Top20... Top10 etc, I would like to know if someone has ever used or heard of these guys and tell me your experience before I use their services, there must be a catch right?

Thanks in advance

Ingrid

I haven't used the company, but I know a fair amount about SEO, and I can tell you that getting to #50 is MUCH easier than #20, and that's MUCH easier than #10. Once you're at the bottom of the first page, it takes much more effort to move up to the sites which are "above the fold" or visible without scrolling. If there's going to be a "catch" I bet it's doing a bunch of easy or black-hat work to get you to #20, taking his fee, and then dumping you as soon as the going gets tough.

Well SEO services charges should be fixed once depending upon the work need to be done. I didnít get what's there in it to charge separately for keyword ranking at Top50....Top20.....Top10 and then at last for 1 Top position. Fair is to take charge for keyword ranking at once. Ultimately goal is to see the keywords at top position and not simply at Top50, Top20 or Top10.

I will suggest you to go for whole SEO services and not for just on page, off page and simply keyword ranking. It will cost more to spend money and time on just simply some of the SEO services and not all.

I don't like to bash the competition...and I honestly don't know anything about them so they could be great...but they're optimizing their website for "seo expert" and they don't rank top 100 on Google, Yahoo or Bing for this keyword. That's not a good sign, but it could just be that they just recently started optimizing for it.
