    I am starting a SEO company that will provide SEO consultation, and also backlink building services. Now while we are taking precautions to safeguard our customers, I am wondering what we can do to protect ourselves from legal action if a customer was to get de-indexed or experience negative results due to our service.

    It looks like most backlink service companies usually just have some sort of disclaimer on the bottom of their site, is this enough to prevent a lawsuit?

    Please let me know your experiences or where you received your legal advice around this.

    A written contract is the best bet my man.

    Contract = Security

    +1. Have a contract and tell that you won't be responsible for site getting de-indexed or something like that...offer a time period grantee.Like 2-3 months

    Thanks for the responses, and I agree that written contracts are the best option for customers who will be paying for full blown SEO consultation, but what about customers who are just ordering backlinks? Most of the time those these transactions are quick and require very little communication.

    Is a disclaimer enough for the link building transactions?

    Thanks again.
