We aim to provide accurate statistics such as DA, DR and traffic at the time of publication. However, these metrics change periodically so there may be some variation over time.
The blog statistics on our website are for illustrative purposes only. We will fully discuss each project and obtain your approval on specific blogs and content before publishing any articles.
Pricing for each blog is assessed individually based on factors including DA, PA, traffic volume and DR. Some high DA blogs may be priced lower if traffic is low, while some lower DA blogs may be higher priced if traffic is significant. Our priority is to provide high-quality blogs that match your budget. We recommend discussing your project so we can recommend the best solution.
Some blog owners may revise pricing periodically. We retain the right to adjust our pricing accordingly even if statistics are not promptly updated on our website. However, we will inform you in advance during our initial proposal if any pricing changes occur. We aim to provide full transparency and get your approval on all aspects including pricing.
The DA of websites can change frequently, with some blogs transitioning from higher to lower DA, or vice versa, which may affect their alignment with our pricing.
We cannot guarantee metrics or link authority as these may change at any time and can take weeks or months to reflect on your website. We are not liable for such changes under any circumstances.
We will retain our custom-created links, assets, cloud pages, and stacks for a period of six months, after that we cannot guarantee that we can keep them available.
Due to the costs involved as we are simply renting space via external service providers, we can only maintain links to monthly retainer clients or we if have explicitly stated this fact in the order process.
We shall not be liable for delay or failure to perform our obligations due to an event beyond our reasonable control, including but not limited to, strikes, industrial disputes, failure of utilities, pandemic, compliance with law or governmental order, breakdown of plant or machinery, fire, flood, storm, acts of God, war, riot, civil commotion or malicious damage.
