    Since most of our business is conducted online, and the fact is that I often do not know who it is that hires me for SEO, I'm thinking about adding a Terms & Conditions popup to my sites to mitigate risk and indemnify myself should someone want to sue.

    Do any of you use something like this on your site, and if so, how do you implement it? Simple popup?

    No, I have pages on each of my websites that contain legal information (copyright notice, TOS, antispam policy, and contracts for my services). If a lead wants to hire me, I have them answer a questionnaire (so I can get an idea of who they are and what they specifically want) before I send them my contracts (which contains and links to the legal information on the websites).

    Popup? Never.
    T&C/TOS page? Always.

    In the case of being hired for SEO work, I would have a signature footer in my email that says something to the effect of "by engaging our (/my) services, you agree to the terms of service at www.xyz.com, which are subject to change without notice".
    Then, just make sure that the TOS set out whatever you think will protect you from litigation.
