Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) work and Search Engine Marketing (SEM) are activities offered collectively under the SEO label by WebDirectStudio and each are subject to the individual agreement reached with each client.
SEO work is governed by many factors which are outside the direct control of WebDirectStudio and indeed, any other SEO company. Therefore no reputable SEO company can guarantee particular results. WebDirectStudio however guarantees improvement provided in a client’s website organic search engine results provided all of WebDirectStudio ’s advice is followed. Ranking results will be performed once or twice per month, as agreed by both parties. Results are based on listings on Google, Yahoo! and MSN results.
Search Engine Optimisation does not include Search Engine submission unless otherwise agreed by WebDirectStudio and the benefits clearly defined. Monthly reports (where applicable) will be circulated to clients within the first five working days of each month. The delay is inevitable in order to take into account metrics which accumulate over time and have a built-in timelag.
Please bear in mind, your website's ranking with a particular Search Term will rely on both the relevancy of that term on your pages, and the popularity of that term on other websites. Both SEO Set Up and Updates will probably require FTP access to the website and its content management system or a contact email address for someone who will upload changes as requested. This may not be necessary for off-page SEO/SEM work.
Your website should be hosted on a reliable server, based in the country of Search Engine interest, with constant availability, for optimimum results. Should WebDirectStudio recommend changing your host or server, this is to protect the interests of your website's ranking within the Search Engines. WebDirectStudio cannot be held responsible for slipping or unsatisfactory Search Engine Ranking results if SEO suggestions have not been adhered to.
WebDirectStudio cannot be held responsible for problems or additional costs arising due to any errors made by third parties, or failure to maintain a current copy of your own website. (Back ups can be made at your request.)
Payment Terms are 7 days from receipt of the invoice.
