6. WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS
PK SEO expressly disclaims any and all warranties as there are no warranties under services of internet marketing.
PK SEO makes no warranty or representation:
as to the position your advertisement is placed on a search result page, or the frequency and time of day that your advertisement is displayed;
for any specific result on any search engine;
as to the quantity or quality of increased traffic or sales to the Client’s Website; or as to Client Website’s ranking. The Client also acknowledges that search engines change their ranking algorithms on a regular basis and new sites and competitor sites may be being optimised and submitted continually.
While Google’s results are displayed on other search engines, PK SEO Services are aimed at increasing visibility and boosting traffic from Google.
Google does change its algorithm approximately several times per year and PK SEO is not responsible for the client’s rankings due to this algorithm change which is carried out periodically.
PK SEO will always work to maintain the Client’s Google rankings, but the Client acknowledges that PK SEO is not liable for any loss of business due to ranking fluctuations caused by Google algorithm changes as PK SEO is not in control of Google algorithm changes.
To add, if the Client has had any previous search engine optimisation work carried out on their website by another SEO organisation or company, PK SEO is not responsible for the Client’s ranking fluctuations that may have been caused by their previous SEO providers and not responsible for not being able to return rankings to an acceptable state due to poor SEO services carried out by the previous provider.
The client also acknowledges that refunds for attempting to return rankings that result in consistent low rankings are also not refundable. Algorithm changes which Google and other search engines alter through the course of the year can vary by many types of algorithm changes which can impact rankings. PK SEO again, does not control this and we are therefore not liable of changes in rankings due to algorithm changes. Competition can also influence rankings on negative levels which would effect client rankings. Again, we can not control these changes.
