For practical reasons Tall Poppies Web Design and any honest SEO company out there will not offer a guarantee to make your web site #1 or #2 on Google, Yahoo or MSN with organic SEO. It is not possible to make a claim like that - be aware of anyone that tells you otherwise!
How long before I can expect results?
If your website has been online longer than six months, has links to it from other websites, and has had regular new content added, then the chances are pretty reasonable that your rankings can be improved with the search engine within 2 weeks.
If your site is brand new, it may be indexed and searchable for some key words within a few weeks and in local searches - but it can take up to six months at least to rank well for very competitive key phrases and to see real SEO impact.
To rank well requires patience and sustained effort. Playing the long game to achieve lasting success is ultimately the best strategy!
