We are in no way affiliated with the Search Engines and We in no way influence or control the Search Engine’s decisions associated with their Algorithms.
- Changes to the Algorithms and Policies are not always provided with notice or adequate time for United Web Services to adjust the SEO Services in order to prevent a temporary or permanent reduction in YOUR Site’s Traffic and Placement. Additionally, competitive actions of third parties and changes in keyword popularity can rapidly affect the Traffic and Placement of YOUR Site. These variables could lead to unpredictable fluctuations in YOUR Site’s Traffic and Placement, which We anticipate could affect YOUR Site on an ongoing basis.

While We use Our reasonable judgment based upon experience providing similar SEO services, We do not guarantee that Our judgment will be the best course of action for YOUR Site, will not result in Penalties to YOUR Site or that YOUR Site’s Traffic and Placement will increase (or will not decrease) as a result of Our exercise of judgment in providing the SEO Services to YOU hereunder.
- Increased Traffic and Placement in no way guarantees that YOU will derive increased sales, revenue or sales conversions from YOUR Site, or that such increased user traffic will represent the quality of customer or target audience YOU are trying to reach. Such increases are largely dependent on the content of YOUR Site, the products and/or services YOU are providing, and other quantifiable and unquantifiable factors not under Our control. We will use reasonable efforts to increase YOUR Site’s Traffic and Placement, but in no way guarantee that YOU will derive increased sales, revenue or sales conversions as a result of Our SEO Services or any other Services hereunder.
