You should ask them fro their techniques. Knowing up front is better to avoid paying for black hat SEO services.

The problem I have with those companies is that the google algorithm changes every couple months or so. 'Apparently' no one is supposed to know how the algorithm works except google, so what can the SEO companies do for us that we can't do for ourselves just by reading the guidelines provided by google themselves?

*sigh*

I would dearly love to know if anyone has truly benefitted from any SEO company.
