    It actually depends

    You can offer them a bundle of services as part of SEO and ask them to decide which of the SEO services they will like to avail

    that ways, you both will be clear as to what you are delivering and it will be easier for you to decide on the price :)

    Thanks for the reply, I have no idea what the value of SEO/ SEM work is. Should I charge an hourly rate, or get paid by results. I have always worked for myself creating niche blogs. This is the first time I will be charge a client.

    I made a post in a similar thread concerning dentists a few minutes ago.
    Before calculating a fee you need to equate how much profit it will bring them
    from how much work it will take you.

    Well if you know your SEO you'll know how much traffic they can expect,
    all you need to find is their profit margins.
