Regarding SEO consultants... Does anyone have any 1st hand/personal
knowledge of an SEO consultant that they've used and can vouch for. In other
words do you have any insight or working relationship with one that you can
provide a reference for.

The following poster mentions Highranking.com" but I'm not sure if the
poster has actual knowledge or if the poster has seen the site/person
somewhere and is simply passing the name along. 

The reason we ask is that we've talked with a few SEOs/SEO companies from
google searches, and we're now really sure that we're getting the "best"
information from the "best" people!!!

For what we're researching, we can't afford to rely on, "word of mouth"
information/pseudo knowledge!!!

Thanks for any help/assistance with this.

Yup. Google's indexing is intelligent enough to validate the quality of
linkage. If your link is one of 200 on my link-for-all page, it will
count for practically zilch with Google.
Jill Whalen ( http://www.highrankings.com/) is *very* knowledgeable
about SEO stuff, and publishes a free newsletter. If you want to
understand the state of SEO today, you can't do much better than to read
Jill's entire site, front to back (and then start over again, 'cause the
state of the state will have changed by then.)
As others have already said, it comes down to this: create meaningful
content in a well-designed site, and you'll have the best *long-term*
search engine results. (Of course, that's like telling folks that, if
you cut back on calories and exercise more, you'll lose weight -
