I. Services Provided By Zoek

• Zoek is not affiliated with Google, Yahoo!, Bing or any search engine. The fulfillment department utilizes several different methods for search query (keyword) selection, online directory creation, content creation and any and all other research and development that goes into properly preparing the client’s online business listing. The timing and success of obtaining front page placement on major search engines may vary depending on the client’s business location (i.e. City, State, Zip Code, etc.), competition in the area and market saturation.
• Zoek follows the guidelines of each online directory and search engine that we submit information to and create online business listings through and strictly adhere to the terms and conditions of these online directories.

• The Zoek promise states that businesses that are not found on the front page of local search results for at least two search queries (keywords) selected for their campaign within their contracted time will be warranted a modification to their campaign in the form of a one month hold on billing. This is done to carry out our promise of the results that our products and services should provide. Application of this billing modification will be implemented as follows:
A client may make a claim that they are not ranking 55 days after the contract was signed and returned. After notice has been received by a Zoek representative, the account will be investigated and billing will be placed on hold for one month if it is agreed that the business is not found on the front page of local search results for at least two search queries (keywords). The hold on billing will take place at the end of the initial contracted period of time. The campaign account will automatically resume billing and enter a status of recurring billing after the one month hold on billing is carried out. The account holder must contact Zoek each month to determine whether or not business listings are found on the front page of local search results for at least two search queries (keywords) in order for a hold on billing to occur again.
• The promise is effective on the date that the contract is signed and returned to Zoek. This may not always be the same day that the account holder becomes a client of Zoek and may vary depending on when the client returns the signed contract.
• If the client makes the decision to change their keywords at any time after the initial set up process in our provisioning department, the promise will restart from the day that those changes are noted.
