There are legitimate SEO companies out there. They do not rip people off and they do not engage in crappy link building. I know because I ran an SEO company for many years and we never engaged in the type of crap that people frequently told us they paid big bucks for, nor did we do link building. Unfortunately, that is not the situation today for probably at least 70% to 80% of the remaining SEO companies. Most of the legimate companies got tired of pissing into the wind and moved on to other things.

Just last month I picked up a new AdWords client with a 10 page website who told me he was paying $100 per month through Network Solutions for SEO.com to do monthly search engine submissions. He was quite surprised when I told him search engine submissions have been obsolete and worthless for at least 10 to 12 years.
