    Every business has certain tricks to make themselves look good. For example, some restaurants will get a frozen pizza from the grocery store and put it in the microwave. They make customers think they are back there making the pizza themselves. or they will give a food a stupid name to make it look like it's really special and expensive.

    in the seo business, are there any tricks to make yourself look good?

    I will give you an example. If someone's site goes up, you take all the credit. If someone's site goes down, you blame it on a "google update"

    any other ways to save your ass in tough situations or make yourself look good?

    If you have clients then provide excellent reports.
    There is software available for this.

    Reports to attract clients "Here's where your website is now - here's your competition"
    and monthly update reports which you send with the invoices.

    Plenty of options for this kind of thing - but all the best ones cost a little

    I'm afraid if you are not good you can't do any better. What happens at the long run? You surely get bursted!!!!

    Yeh maybe if you told them that the competition "blowed" the site up they might even believe you.

    This. No need to bullshit your clients. Do a good job, sound confident and act professionally. Make sure you're organised. Call them when you say you'll call them and deliver what you promise.

    Publicity - make yourself look famous (have many social shares)
    Original results - provide real examples and pure results
    Privacy - protect the privacy of your client
    Reputation - maintain your reputation by providing discounts for repeated customers ..

    And there, you become an authority in what you do...

    Good luck..
