    Many hosts do, but to be honest you shouldn't really be looking for one. Hosts aren't search engine marketers - their SEM offerings are invariably bolted on to their packages to make a quick buck at the expense of people too inexperienced to know what they are providing is totally useless. We're talking stuff like automatic search engine submission, something that has a value of absolutely nil.

    Some hosts partner with one of the engines to provide pay per click advertising through your hosting account interface, but that's not realy a value added service either.

    Steer clear of this and make your decision based on hosting factors - that's what the web host is (or should be) good at.

    I agree 100%. A large chunk of my clients are people who got these "bolt on" packages and found no results. Some of them waited a year or more (at 150-200 per month) before they called me.

    One in particular sold banner impressions and clicks (nothing to do with SEO) as a part of their SEO package, and didn't even deliver the promised amount of clicks. They submitted their site to google, yahoo, and ask once a month. For 160 dollars. Complete rip off.

    Choose a real SEO, and ask him for references or examples, or you could get the seo book and learn it yourself, and save a lot of money.
