    No one can guarantee first page. Though, you should reply back “thanks, but I don’t need mid tier PBN links at this time”.

    Every big company does same..

    BT broadband advert on radio this morning "If your speed drops below what you were promised we will give you £20 everytime"

    End of advert someone speaks EXTREMELY FAST and says "you only get £20 if we cannot fix it within 30 days"

    Just a loophole in false advertisements, such BS.

    hahaha I feel bad for the customer service reps who have to explain that to the customer who feels entitled to their £20.

    I don't see anything wrong with this description - the keyword could be any keyword, including those ones nobody's looking for.
    There could be no guarantees in SEO except those guarantees that specific actions would be done, but you can't guarantee something you have no control of.

    SEO is a strange kind of beast.
    You promise to do the work but you don't guarantee that your work works.
    This explains why SEO clients last few months.

    Why not 1st place in google search, you only need to pay for that keyword and you have ad on top.

    It makes it harder for the customer to trust a new company though, doesn't it?

    The truth be told SEO is like a venture into the unknown. Google holds all the all the locks and all we do is try as many keys as possible until we find one that fits.

    Search results are volatile, unpredictable, and very arbitrary. You can't control it, but you can influence chances of positive outcomes.

    Why? Because no one owns or controls the Internet.

    Same with Wikipedia, because you don't own the articles.

    Anyone guaranteeing results isn't being totally honest or transparent.
