I will take on board the comments however I would still like to see their company within the first 3 pages of google for their chosen keywords
Um. Kind of true, but then again, maybe not so much! I've got a steady no. 2 in Google UK for - SEO consultant - , and I rank pretty good for it in Google USA too, database fluctuations allowing, which they mostly do. But I'm not even making a dent on the term - search engine submission - . I'm not in the top 500 in either Goog. I've only been seriously aiming at it for a few weeks, since I woke up to how many searches there are for it. My page on the subject details why it's a waste of your money, I'll hastily point out before I get leapt on - again - here, so I was thinking that if my alternative to what's out there gets eyeballed it'll maybe educated a few punters and they'll come see what else I have to say on matters SEO. I don't think I'm going to manage it with just on-pge optimisation, looks like a long time link gathering looms if I really want it. Makes me wonder if I actually do, to tell the truth!
So, how do you qualify the keywords I actually have? Are they the ones I really wanted, or are they just the only ones I could get?
Bit of both would be the answer in my case :-) I think really you have to establish a measure of trust between SEO and client, I wouldn't want to allow a client to get greatly in debt to me (cash flow) and I wouldn't expect a client to hand over his life savings on the strength of brief acquaintance. Do a bit, charge a bit, do some more, charge some more. Establish trust and a working relationship while you're doing it. I think it's unrealistic to expect someone to hand over significant money without that trust being established, and that's best built gradually over time.

Is there a back link to you there somewhere?

On the history page, and the talk page. ProjectPHP completely rewrote a good chunk of the article.
Just yesterday Wikipedia deployed nofollows on all external links. Previously they were on the talk and user pages only. It makes me wonder what happens when most of the Web 2.0 goes to nofollow in an effort to stop linkspam. Obvously, Google previously chose to count external links from Wikipedia because it helped their search results. If Wikipedia puts on nofollows, will Google choose to ignore them? There's no law saying that search engines have to honor nofollow.
Contributing to Wikipedia won't increase your link popularity. It never did.

That's easily solved. Make it plain that you expect money, give an indication of how much and for what, and it ends the phone calls from idiots. It's true that this will result in there being times when you wish for the phone to ring but they are less bad than those times when you're deeply involved in productive work and the phone rings... and rings... and rings... and every one of those calls is from someone uncouth and ignorant, people you wouldn't want to associate with in any way on a personal level and you just know they don't have any money to begin with.
