EXHIBIT A – SEO SERVICES (to apply if added to the products list of Purchase Agreement)
Please find the appropriate terms that apply to your campaign listed below and depicted by a lowercase letter [example: a.), b.), c.), etc…] under the corresponding letter sections as found on the purchase agreement you signed.
a) SEO Services
SEO Phrases. DCM will research relevant targeted Keyword phrases to be utilized during the optimization process. DCM will endeavor to maintain 1st page search engine placements and work towards achieving additional 1st page placements by the first Ranking Report which is within approximately 3 – 6 months (Please refer to the Purchase Order for the specific number of guaranteed first page placements). The 1st Page Search Engine Placements may be maintained in one or some of the major search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Bing and their respective search partners within the Local Map section and/or the Organic Results section. Existing placements that have achieved a higher ranking in the process as a direct result of our efforts are therefore a part of our number of guaranteed placements. DCM does not guarantee any sales or traffic to the Client’s website or conversions into clients, customers, business or revenue to Client. Traffic and sales depend on the demand for the Client’s product or service, design and layout of the Clients’ website, call-to-action, and many other factors that are beyond the control of DCM. DCM guarantees the amount of 1st page search engine placements (Please refer to the purchase order for the guaranteed number of 1st page placements). Delays in the guarantee may arise due to Google, Yahoo, or Bing updates which modify the currently targeted SEO algorithm, the Client’s URL has been registered for less than 12 months, and many other outside factors not within the control of DCM to which DCM shall not be liable and in which case DCM reserves the right to provide a contract extension in either of these events. Any placements guarantee will be voided in some events/cases/outcomes/as a result of some actions (Please see Other Duties and Disclaimers for more details).
Digital Marketing Service Process/Timeline. It will take approximately 3-5 weeks to develop and complete updated on-page SEO code (set-up files) after DCM has received the suggested keyword form or list, written approval of Content created by DCM (if applicable), and proper access to the Client’s website (FTP or CMS administrative access if needed). If the Client does not have any type of tracking tools on the Client’s website, DCM may add a tracking tool. If such a tool may be installed at no additional cost to Client, no specific consent by Client is required. DCM may add telephone tracking numbers to the Client’s website, Google My Business profile and any paid ads campaign. If telephone tracking may be installed there will be no additional cost to the client for the local telephone tracking numbers unless incoming calls exceed 100 minutes per month. In the event of any overage the cost for each additional minute will be $0.08 per minute. If a toll-free tracking phone number is to be installed there will be an additional fee as stipulated on the purchase agreement. DCM’s Digital Marketing services do not include paid submission fees that some directories charge for inclusion. DCM is not affiliated with these submission services in any way. If DCM fails to achieve (Please refer to the Purchase Agreement for the specific number of guaranteed first page placements) the specific number of initial 1st page placements within the Local Map and/or Organic Results in Google, Yahoo, Bing, YouTube, and any other partnering search engines by the Initial Ranking Report, Client may obtain a prorated refund of its fees after additional service prices have been deducted and we have calculated the correct number of results not achieved.
Client Responsibility. In addition to those duties and responsibilities, it is the responsibility of the Client to follow instructions provided within the Service Agreement as well as the on-page changes email which includes optimization files and functionality reports that explain what needs to be applied, altered or updated. It is the responsibility of the Client to apply all necessary changes or suggestions given by DCM to assist with achieving better natural first page results, to include subscribing to paid directories. If Client does not implement some or all of the suggested changes or modifications or perform them properly, the search engine placement results may be adversely affected in which case DCM shall bear no liability for any guarantee or placement and which are not guaranteed notwithstanding any other section of this Agreement to the contrary. All of the Client’s website Banner Pages that have not been optimized by DCM need to have 500 plus words of Content relevant to the Titles and Meta Tags that should be set/developed by Client using desired keyword phrase for better results. For pages that have been optimized by DCM, the Content should also use Relevant Keyword Phrases that are used for that specific page (See On-page Change’s email for more details). If Client does not have the ability to implement the website suggestions/recommendations provided by DCM, the Client may ask DCM for assistance, which can be provided at an additional cost as mutually agreed. This local listing information is time sensitive and is an important aspect of the Digital Marketing service. The Client understands and agrees that the services provided by DCM are subject to significant time restrictions, e.g., “time is of the essence.” Therefore, if Client is requested to make any comments, approvals, or otherwise respond to questions asked by DCM by email, Client shall respond within 5 business days. If the Client does not respond within 5 business days to any email requiring approval of any information, data, or images, Client shall be deemed to have approved such information, data, or images and DCM proceed with its services.
Keywords. DCM will use the provided suggested keyword phrases and target areas as a guideline of importance/relevancy to the Client’s business. DCM may target surrounding areas up to a 15-mile radius of the business location, as specified on the Client’s Purchase Order. DCM will endeavor to maintain current rankings previously achieved by DCM, and work to achieve additional keyword rankings, but does not guarantee placements of any specific keyword phrases within the contract term. DCM submission process is performed in strict accordance with anti-spam guidelines established by search engines. The search engine spiders/crawlers will try to identify each Client’s website under Relevant Keyword Phrases as well as identifying keywords within the Content of the Client’s website.
Google My Business Service Process/Timeline. Client must designate DCM as Owners on their existing Google My Business Profile, where DCM will coordinate with the Client for any additions or changes that the Client may need to make themselves. If the current profile that DCM is assigned to as Owners does earn higher rankings (top 10 in maps), these rankings will be considered a part of the guaranteed results. In the event Client has a duplicated listing in Google with the same info, Client must contact Google and delete this listing asap, this could interfere with the entire ranking process. If ownership is not granted in a timely manner (within 10 business days of original request), the service will then be considered self-managed. DCM will provide updates and Client will make such updates on their own.
Other Duties and Disclaimers.
Client or Client’s agents for Self-Installation. If DCM is unable to apply the SEO code (set-up files) to the Client’s website due to functionality or permission issues even with correct access, the files will be sent to Client or Client’s agents for Self-Installation. The proprietary coding (on-page changes) applied to the Client’s website, listings and or landing pages, is the intellectual property of DCM until the Client has paid in full for the contracted amount. Absent payment in full, all such intellectual property remains within the ownership and possession of DCM. Upon receiving payment in full for the contracted amount the proprietary coding and programming become the intellectual property of the Client. Rankings are subject to change and without maintenance in subsequent years results will be lost. In the event of self-installation Client must notify DCM upon completion of upload so DCM can verify it has been installed correctly. In order for service to work effectively, SEO code (set-up files) must be added precisely and promptly. DCM will then submit the optimized pages to the search engines. DCM is not liable for lost placements, errors or non-delivery due to changes made to code by Client or Client’s agents. There is a $350.00 minimum charge to re-apply SEO code (set-up files) on Client’s website for any reason. If Client or Client’s agent make changes to their website and do not incorporate the DCM optimization codes correctly or alters or removes the code, Client is responsible for any delay, disruption, damage or inability in achieving placements and providing placement reports and such modification, alteration or change voids any guarantee or absolves DCM of all liability. If Client or an agent of the Client copies the meta data or content onto another website, the guarantee detailed in this contract, if any, will be voided. DCM reserves the right to use additional marketing means to help improve the visibility of the website and attract more visitors to the Client’s website.
Other Duties and Disclaimers.

DCM will not be liable for non-positioning and non-delivery of placements and positioning if DCM is not given access to add the necessary SEO code (set-up files) onto Client’s website via correct and accurate FTP access information or CMS administrative access information when necessary. If Client fails to provide accurate and complete website access in a timely manner or the access does not give DCM the ability to apply SEO code (set-up files), they will then be created to the best of DCM’s capabilities without proper access to the Client’s website. The SEO code (set-up files) will then be sent to Client and/or Client’s agents for Self-Installation. If DCM is unable to apply the SEO code (set-up files) to the Client’s website due to functionality or permission issues even with correct access, the files will be sent to Client and/or Client’s agents for Self-Installation. DCM reserves the right to extend the period for performance of this Agreement if there are delays in service timeframes due to search engine changes or updates which are out of our control. DCM reserves the right to increase Client’s rate with 30 days prior notice after the initial contract term. DCM will provide the Client with a contract extension and will not be obligated to provide a refund if completed work or ranking reports are delayed due to Google, Yahoo and Bing updates/changes as long as the guaranteed results are provided by the Initial Ranking Report, notwithstanding the fact that all funds and payments are and remain non-refundable. If the Client’s URL has been registered for less than 12 months, attaining the guaranteed placements may take longer than the initial contract term. It is strongly recommended that the Client continue to renew the Digital Marketing services to maintain the achieved placements. DCM will create custom articles and place them on the website’s root directory. DCM may also create a page specifically meant for link exchange interactions.
