Section III.

Search Engine Optimization:

Ultimate SEO LLC’s search engine optimization services include both on page and off page optimization work.  Ultimate SEO LLC will require FTP and server access to your website to implement on page SEO changes.  Ultimate SEO LLC guarantees to meet or exceed off page link building requirements as describe in contracts or project charters.  While most links remain live for years, due to factors beyond our control on 3rd party websites we can only guarantee links will remain live for longer than 3 months.

If a link is removed in less than 3 months we will replace it with a similarly ranked site upon notification.

Ultimate SEO LLC may provide an estimated time frame or cost for ranking higher in search results; Such an estimate is only a best guess from past experiences and may not accurately reflect the actual amount of time or cost to achieve higher rankings due to factors beyond our control such as website age, website content, search engine algorithm changes, and other factors.

The leading factor that limits our ability to meet said goals has been the client’s alteration of our strategic plan. If a client deems it necessary to enact SEO measures without Ultimate SEO’s knowledge any estimate or ranking goals are voided.  Client actions taken to effect our strategic plan include buying links, removing and altering content, purchasing other domains with competing keywords, running PPC / SEM campaigns that include target SEO keywords and other actions normally undertaken by an SEO.

Ultimate SEO LLC’s primary objective is to improve your company’s search engine rankings, however due to factors beyond our control and constant changes in search engine ranking algorithms we cannot guarantee that your website will increase in rankings.  Ultimate SEO LLC takes every measure possible to protect your site from adverse effects of search engine optimization work, including following applicable industry best practices and closely monitoring SEO campaigns.

In extreme cases, barring negligent or malicious intent,  search engine optimization work can harm search engine rankings, including but not limited to lower keyword placement, lower website traffic, search engines deindexing your site, and search engine penalties.  Ultimate SEO LLC is not liable or responsible for any unintended declines in search engine rankings, lost revenues, lost traffic, lost opportunities, or any other damages that may result from utilizing our SEO services.

Design & Development:

Ultimate SEO LLC offers design and development services, both for web based projects as well as intranets, mobile applications, CRMs, and other digital marketing projects.  Ultimate SEO further offers services for security and data privacy.  We also offer SEO cloud computing and hosting services as well as the management of these sites and updates to them.  Not all contracts include all of these services.

If web design hosting is done via a 3rd party we cannot be held responsible or liable for issues arising from web hosting, site down time, improper backups, loss of data, or any other hosting related issues.

Ultimate SEO LLC will only utilize images when we have full copyright permission. Any images provided by the client are assumed to be the property of the client. All images and aspects of the website belong to the client and Ultimate SEO LLC is in no way responsible or liable for any issues that arise due to the images, videos, text, or other content on the client’s website. When a client requests that Ultimate SEO LLC utilizes stock images, photos, videos, or other media on a web design project, it is the responsibility of the client to follow all terms, copyrights, and licensing agreements for such media and is in no way the responsibility of Ultimate SEO LLC.  Clients own their site’s and are responsible for their content.

I understand that with certain projects there may be the need for Ultimate SEO LLC to order themes, additional code, pictures, videos, or other media from 3rd parties. I agree that I am responsible for these additional costs that may not be quoted in the original price quote and it is my responsibility to abide by any 3rd party terms or agreements for such items. I understand that should these additional costs exceed $250 I will be notified via email of the cost prior to Ultimate SEO LLC placing the order.

Ultimate SEO LLC makes every effort possible to meet the needs and wants of the client, and with all projects we require any special requests to be made upfront prior to beginning the project. Any requests that are made after the project will be billed at our hourly design rate, not to exceed $200 per hour, to make the necessary changes. I understand that I must submit any special requests in writing or electronically, prior to the start of the project, including but not limited to themes, layouts, colors, text, content, page copy, color schemes, logos, graphics, icons, and any other on page elements.

Any requests that I do not submit prior to starting the project and after that element of the site has been designed will be billed at our standard hourly rate. All packages include basic revisions, including small changes to the site which include swapping out images, changing parts of text, and minor edits as needed. Revisions will not exceed 3 hours of revision work unless otherwise stated in the project proposal. I agree to submit all revisions to Ultimate SEO LLC in writing within 5 business days of project completion, otherwise any revisions will be billed at the standard hourly rate.

Any major edits including theme changes, layout changes, color scheme changes, and large on site elements will be billed at our standard hourly rate, not to exceed $200 per hour, and are not included in the package. Additional pages outside the initial project quote will be billed at a rate between $75 and $150 for simple pages and a rate between $150 and $400 for complex pages.

I understand that when I enter into a design or development contact with Ultimate SEO LLC, the assumption is that the current website is coded properly and that all involved 3rd parties, including company employees and 3rd party vendors, have provided accurate information pertaining to the coding and elements of the website. The cost estimate for the new design/development project is based on the information provided to us by the client and applicable 3rd party vendors. Ultimate SEO LLC is not responsible for additional costs incurred due to inaccurate information or problems with your current site which are discovered during the design process. Such additional costs will be billed at our standard web development rate, not to exceed $200 per hour.

When utilizing 3rd party data or 3rd party coding, our price quote is fully contingent on the 3rd party providing data in the proper format, layout, and structure so that it may easily be integrated into the website. I agree that the price quoted for the design/development project may change based on changes in pricing from 3rd party vendors and/or changes in coding, software, API’s, or other pieces of software provided by 3rd parties.

In the event that additional costs discovered and/or incurred during the web design/development project exceed the client’s budget, we will notify the client in writing to ask how they wish to proceed with the project. If they agree to proceed we will provide them with a new estimate for the total cost of the project. If they do not wish to proceed, we will bill them for all current work already performed on the website and end the contract.

Due to the nature of development work, any costs and time estimates provided during the proposal process are a good faith estimate and may change upon the start of the project or during the project depending on any changes in scope, coding conflicts, or other issues that arise as the result of the development project.
