In respect to the services provided, there is or (shouldn’t be) any difference whatsoever.
The primary difference is within the connotation of the terms. The term freelancer suggests an independent or self employed individual who performs a specific function such a freelance writer. While the term Consultant suggests a more professional designation that encompasses identifying needs and outlining high level strategies or solutions to address those needs.
However, in respect to search volumes:
SEMRush Keyword Overview indicates that the term “SEO Consultant” is searched 4 times more compared to the term “SEO Freelancer”
There should be little to no difference in service however there is a difference in search.

No! No ethical SEO expert, freelancer, consultant, or Agency can guarantee SEO results. However an experienced SEO expert can interpret trends and identify opportunities and implement SEO strategies that should create a competitive advantage for you to leverage and benefit from.
The one thing that should be guaranteed when working with any SEO expert is that there is a measurable and improved ROI against SEO efforts. A reputable SEO expert will always be transparent and reveal all results of his work via reporting methods per your request.
Darryl's professionalism, knowledge and super quick response times was extremely appreciated when he was helping me set up my website. He helped me to design my site, provided me with excellent professional advice, and was always quick to respond when I needed to make any changes, and was especially flexible when they were sometimes last minute changes. I attribute the success of my business's website to Darryl's help. Thanks Darryl!
