  • Please note that We cannot guarantee any improvement in the performance of Your PPC (or other paid advertising), due to many variables including your website and its ability to convert and competitor activity, amongst many, which may also affect the Cost per Click and/or the performance of your campaign.  We cannot accept responsibility for any variation in the performance of Your website due to seasonality, competitor activity, design and usability and other marketing conditions outside Our control.

  • It must be understood that We have no control over future algorithm or policy changes by Google or other search engines, but We do undertake various checks and techniques to try to ensure that the risk of a future penalty is minimised. It is essential that You inform us of any link building or digital advertising that You may carry out independently; as these may carry risks of a manual penalty if the source of the link is from a site that is known for using ‘spammy’ (/ ‘Black Hat’) SEO techniques or accepting payments for links.
  • The performance of an SEO campaign relies on You (or Your developer) implementing any technical recommendations and/or uploading new optimised content within a timely manner (typically 2-4 weeks). Any delay in carrying out these tasks may seriously impact the effectiveness of a Service and could even result in drops in rankings e.g. if duplicate content or ‘spammy’ links are not removed. Delays may also hold up later phases of the Service/s. In such cases when You or Your developer have held up the progress of a Service/s; You will continue to receive monthly invoices according to the agreed schedule.
  • For PR and/or Social Media Campaigns; the timing and placement of Your content on third party and media sites cannot be guaranteed.  Therefore, the performance of the Service/s will be judged against the agreed plan of activities to create and place content, (as well as Our knowledge of the journalists and influencers in each sector). Our Contractors will provide more information which may or may not include the following; estimates of the likely hit rate from the planned activities and then report on the actual amount of content placed and the engagement with the published content (regarding audience reach, social shares, click throughs and traffic to your site, links generated etc.). If applicable the Contractor may also determine the commercial value and ROI of the coverage (as compared to buying the equivalent media space through advertising).
