Definition of results

“A Top 10 ranking” means that your selected search term or key phrase will be placed in the first 10 results on Google.co.uk within 10 -20 weeks of the optimisation techniques being uploaded to the customer’s website. Although Google’s results are displayed on other search engines e.g. AOL, Yahoo etc, the work that is carried out by SEO Maintenance is solely aimed at increasing visibility and boosting search engine ranking on Google.

SEO Maintenance stress that it is not possible to give any guarantees for any specific result on any search engine, nor can we quantify the level of increased traffic or sales, as a result of the search engine optimisation campaign. Advertising online is an unpredictable market place and SEO Maintenance can give no guaranteed positioning.
