"But far the worst seo
services around are those that offer web design and seo
as a package, they're in most cases completely useless"

these days is almost all about articles"
No offence....but your totally wrong.
"I can fix up all onpage seo
on a small website in a few hours"
Your amazingly fast. 5 page site, getting the on-site SEO
in place would take me an average of 12 hours. And it isn't a one time job...if you are performing SEO
properly you would being going back on a constant basis to make changes based on performance.
