If you can kindly refer me to the right contacts (e.g email addresses, phone numbers, IM, skype ID) of experienced, successful Internet Business Gurus (SEO or webmaster experts), I would greatly appreciate it.
Many thanks in advance.
I would suggest you to check in some web master forums. Do not just jump on to conclusions. Ask for references to see if they have strong knowledge plus experience. Take all contacts physical address to on-line forum references. Just in case if they are wrong guys you can sue or intimate in those forums which will ban such people. (search for some examples in Google)
I do suggest you to check SEO consultant review sites where you can find the reviews and can help you find someone who suits your requirement. for example: http://www.findseo.org/Portfolio-Europe.html
Lastly Google your requirement and search search till you find..
Hope that helps
