    Is that how most seo companies work?

    I'm about 5 months into seo with a company and it turns out to keep the PBN'S they built they want you to stick with them. Just wondering if this is considered a common practice.

    Thanks

    Typically they would own the PBN sites unless you had some other arrangement if they are using PBNs to rank your site.

    They are making private PBN'S for my site but they basically said to keep the sites registered and everything would come along with keeping SEO services going. If they could get a good roi going in the next month or two and expand out our keywords I wouldn't mind keeping the SEO going really.

    That is the name of the game for a decent SEO company; get the client ranked for KWs that will give him a return on his money that is consistent with his goals.

    If a seo company does what they promise you will never want to leave them anyway.

    In business in general, most companies want your repeat business as much as possible.

    For my local SEO/IM business, I want clients to work with me indefinitely as it's not only easier for me to keep clients than to get them, but I prefer building business relationships that will provide me with stable income for years to come.

    Well, that depends on the company. Some will keep the links permanently, others will take them away if you leave. You have to discuss that ahead of time before signing up with them. Unfortunately most people don't do that.
