Hi all,
I'm new to the group and I needed a little advice.  I own a company
that specializes in real estate marketing.  We'd like to help our
customers get on the web, but just aren't that savvy at this point.  I
wouldn't be opposed to hiring someone to handle our web business, but
I'd like to make an informed decision.  Most of the ads I've seen
offer a "GUARANTEED" top five listing on the top engines.  Why is this
hard for me to believe?

Are there any books or sites out there that could better help me
understand the ins and outs of search engines, site submission, etc?

Thanks so much for your time,

No-one can offer this as it is impossible.

what they might be doing is:

1) Sponsored listings (that sometimes appear before actual listings)

2) Doing this on the craziest keywords. 3-5 words long that anyone could get
easily enough.

No. The minute they're published, they're out of date. I've put a list
of SEO resources together at   you could
try there for info.
