ask yourself this -- dbforums is a forums web site about databases, so why would someone wishing to have information about search engine optimization post a question in the forum for purchasing products and services related to databases? wouldn't you rather post that question in a forum about search engine optimization?
of course, search engine optimization is such an over-saturated niche, i suppose that if you went to google and searched for search engine optimization, you might get some, how should i put this, "optimized" results
but i doubt very much you'd be led here to dbforums
i would suspect that he might be here because he wants an unbiased opinion.
if he goes to one of those SEO websites, they are likely sut going to try to sell him something.
but your right SEO is SOOOO Over rated. google filed a pattent on their method so i doubt that anyone is going to be able to guarantee any results at all. plus, some companies use rather aggressive tactics and it ends up getting your site banned. google made a public announcement some time ago that it had blacklisted companies taht were trying to skew its formula by creating dozens of fake websites that pointed to each other in an attempt to create false affiliations, false importance.
there were several lawsuits over it.
or... after looking at his website, i suspect he is jsut trying to generate business and traffic to it.
