Should I Continue Working with an Ignorant SEO Client?

A High Rankings Forum member has run into a bit of a rut with one of his clients who was "'brainwashed" by an SEO that editing the meta tags (and repeating keywords) would result in great rankings. The original SEO wants to get his client back, but doesn't know how to best approach this. Is it even worth the hassle?

While this is posed to the High Rankings Forum for member advice, the general consensus is that "only you can make this decision." In other words, it may not be worth the hassle to keep this particular client.

Jill Whalen makes this argument as well:

Clients don't tell you what to do. You tell them what you're going to do.

Otherwise, they don't need to be a client. If they already know what they want, then let them do it. They obviously don't need you since they already know everything.

Would you stay with a client who refuses to acknowledge reason and considers spammy (short term success, if at all) tactics?

Forum discussion continues at High Rankings Forum.
