Hello,
I'm searching for good PR firms that have had recent successes taking an unheard of internet startup to a big name in a short amount of time.  Whoever gives me the best referral will get the points.

Thanks,
Nick

"taking an unheard of internet startup to a big name in a short amount of time"

SEO is long-term

You usually cannot expect dramatic results in months. It takes at least a year or two.

I'm personally hiring these people for my own company:

www.webuildpages.com

Also, Michael Duz (michael.duz@gmail.com) is a good professional SEO, but he is very busy.

www.webuildpages.com starts with content. As with many big SEO firms, they help you build a large site since large sites with lots of good free information rank better.

Well, I had hoped for some more thorough responses than what I was able to find in the top 20 in a simple google result...

Well - noone would post a new idea even if they have one when you had ignored all of the above answers...

I suppose I expected a little bit more effort and a few more suggestions for a 500 point question...

And how someone was supposed to know that:
1. you still need help
2. you had not abandoned the question
3. you care at all for the answers...

The main idea in EE is communication - noone is a mindreader.

nhtahoe,

Duz's advice is excellent here:

It still applies. He is a professional SEO, a guru here at Online Marketing.

Hope this helps.
