The time to see results will vary based on many factors such as the age of the site, keywords targeted, etc.

I've worked on sites where it's taken a week to see results and others have taken 8 months.

As long as you see steady increases, you are good.

Usually u can get results faster when working with a company, but remember it's not all in the traffic. Make sure you also covert website visitors into customers on your site, because if you fail to do so, even a 100x increase in traffic from search engines won't help you.

Having email capture and optin magnets usually helps the conversion process, but thats a whole other story

What site specifically do you want to optimize anyway? Maybe i could give you some more specific pointers then

Well any internet marketing company needs SEO services to well optimize and promote the site, and make their site search engine friendly.

SEO is the on going process, it can't be stop,but through SEO activities like on-page and off-page optimization you can make your site at higher position in search engine results.

Great point. The conversion aspect is often lost and not taken into consideration. People focus strictly on the traffic. Conversions are just as important.

It depends on the company and what they are doing for you. It also depends on how competitive your niche is and whether or not your site had any rankings/traffic before they started working on it. And many other things. There's so many factors that it's impossible for anyone to give you an exact answer.

ya seo companies do show results but you need to do a quick check about that company..like what all methods they'll be using, what previous projects they undertook and what were the results..& regarding results i would say that seo requires continuous efforts. You'll be out of serp's if you stop doing it..
