  • The destination URL must be active and not under construction. The destination URL cannot link to an email address or a file.
  • Pop-ups are not allowed on the landing page.
  • Links to your website must allow users to enter and exit the landing page easily, and to return to the search results page or ad network by clicking once on the browser’s “Back” button.

Lead Generator System – Conversion Web Pages (Landing Pages)

  1. Only 1 complimentary landing page will be included with each Search Advertising service.
  2. All landing pages remain the sole property of Yobuz and may be modified at any time to correct errors, improve performance or for any other reason as deemed necessary.
  3. If your service is cancelled, your landing page(s) will be removed from our servers and the URL(s) will become inactive. This includes landing pages included as part of a package if any part of this service is cancelled.
  4. We will endeavour to create the highest quality landing page using the template selected and the information provided. All customers will be permitted one text-only change to their landing page copy with any additional changes subject to a fee.

g. Code Upload

Yobuz will normally only upload “Alt Tag” and “Text Link Tag” optimized code elements in cases where a web page is written in simple HTML. If a web page has been designed using dynamic server side languages (i.e. PHP, ASP, CGI) rather than simple HTML, uploading of non Meta Data elements will be the responsibility of the customer and/or their webmaster.

Customers who order Code Upload or other services which provide Yobuz access to make changes to their website, do so with the understanding that Yobuz is not liable for any errors which may occur in these updates. Although full care is taken when making such website changes, customers are expected to backup their website prior to providing Yobuz this access at each instance. It is recommended that you frequently update your FTP password after requested changes have been made.

h. Packages and Special Offers

On cancellation or pausing of individual service/s from a package – the remaining (those not cancelled or paused) service/s from the package will remain on subscription. The monthly price of the remaining services will represent their proportion of the package price, based on the full recommended retail price of the equivalent services (as at the time of purchase).

i. Search Engine Submission

All Search Engine Submission services include manual submission to 17 search engines, manual submission to four directories, the registration of a Google Local listing and automated submission to 100 further search engines. Please note that because of the nature of Google Local listings, we can only create one listing per top level domain. This means that if you order multiple Premium Submit subscriptions for the same domain, we will maintain one Google Local listing across these multiple subscriptions.

Google Local submission requires that your business have a valid street address. P.O Box address’s are not acceptable. If you do not provide this information the local submission portion of your service cannot be completed.

j. SEO Services with Ranking Guarantees

All premium Publicity with ranking guarantees, are made available as one time purchase, monthly, 6 months and 12 month subscription.

Ranking guarantees are only valid if target keywords are discussed in advance prior to purchase. All ranking guarantees are based on a minimum continuous service term of 6 months.

If any changes are made to the content, meta tags or any other modification delivered by Yobuz as part of the SEO packages, this will impact Yobuz’ ability to deliver the specified rankings and will therefore void all ranking guarantees.

Websites which fail to comply with the following guidelines are excluded from any ranking guarantees with respect to the SEO packages:

  • Where the submitted site is not the destination URL including 301, 302 and DNS redirects.
  • Without content which can be readily indexed by a search engine, including but not limited to sites which contain only images, frames or flash content.

  • Where the “robots.txt” file is set-up in a manner which disallows crawling by search engine spiders and web robots.
  • Where the website’s content is predominantly a duplicated version of content found on other website/s.
  • If the website contravenes any other listing and SPAM guidelines as outlined by Google and/or Yahoo! and/or MSN.
  • Websites which promote pharmaceutical, casino, gambling or adult content are also excluded from the ranking guarantee unless specified otherwise.

If a website qualifies for the ranking guarantee (based on the guidelines above) and Yobuz fails to have 50 percent of the agreed keywords listed within the top 20 search results on Google.com (including regional Google domains) after 6 months of continuous successful service, Yobuz will continue optimizing the website at no further cost until the specified rankings are achieved. This guarantee also covers any map based listings which can be integrated within Google’s regular organic results.

This guarantee will continue to apply for each consecutive month that billing continues after the 6 month mark. All times and dates are recorded in PST time.

Once ranking commitments have been achieved, the agreed billing cycle will recommence. Any rulings on the above terms made by Yobuz are final.
