  • All fees are non-refundable.
  • All fees, services, documents, recommendations, and reports are confidential.
  • Info Com Click has no control over the policies of search engines with respect to the type of sites and/or content that they accept now or in the future. The Client’s website may be excluded from any directory or search engine at any time at the sole discretion of the search engine or directory.
  • Due to the competitiveness of some keywords/phrases, ongoing changes in search engine ranking algorithms, and other competitive factors, Info Com Click does not guarantee #1 positions or consistent top 10 positions for any particular keyword, phrase, or search term.
  • Google has been known to hinder the rankings of new websites (or pages) until they have proven their viability to exist for more than 6 months. This is referred to as the “Google Sandbox”. Info Com Click assumes no liability for ranking/traffic/indexing issues related to Google Sandbox penalties.
  • Occasionally, search engines will drop listings for no apparent or predictable reason. Often, the listing will reappear without any additional SEO. Should a listing be dropped during the SEO campaign and does not reappear within 30 days of campaign completion, Info Com Click will re-optimize the website/page based on the current policies of the search engine in question.
