SEO Code of Ethics
As a competitor in the international SEO industry, WebiMax takes great pride in our ability to provide our clients with superior service and results they can come to expect to receive from a #1 rated SEO firm. Unfortunately, the industry is virtually unregulated, and has received somewhat of a bad name due to unscrupulous firms that resort to questionable, “black-hat” methods to enhance their client’s visibility. Once these firms are caught, they become banned from the search engines, significantly impacting the reputation of their business.
At WebiMax, we have made it one of our organizational goals, in addition to our commitment to our customers, to bring a positive name to our industry by promoting “white-hat”, ethical optimization methods. Without resorting to questionable and unethical practices, our ethical approach to SEO enables us to offer our clients peace of mind, something that is not listed on a contract but engrained in our methods.
The following values govern our everyday practices:
The WebiMax SEO Code of Ethics:
