Clients who have signed up for a maintenance plan receive discounts off the web designer’s hourly rates for website updates. The standard half hour maintenance plan is enough time to add about five photos and a few paragraphs of text. Clients on a APPTETA.COM web maintenance plan may send update requests via email (contact us for the correct email address). Routine maintenance which fits into the allotted time specified in the client’s maintenance plan is typically completed in about three to four business days. If a client on a website maintenance plan requests more than the scheduled amount of maintenance, he/she will be given a quote and, if approved, the additional work will be completed at a discounted rate of $85.00 per hour and the turnaround time will be based on workload issues. Clients who are not on any maintenance plan may request website updates at an hourly rate which will be agreed upon by client and APPTETA.COM and the turnaround time will be based on workload issues.
II. SEARCH ENGINE GUARANTEE
Most every client would like his/her website to rank high in search engine results for selected keywords, yet search engine results are determined by a multitude of constantly changing factors, third party search engines, and the amount and quality of competition on the world wide web. APPTETA.COM guarantees certain search-engine friendly techniques will be used in the creating of each custom website, such as keywords in the title bar at the top of the browser, the meta tags in the hidden coding behind the scenes, and alternate text behind some images. If the keyword placement in these three areas is not to the client’s liking, APPTETA.COM will change these three items to the client’s choices one time for free. Subsequent or additional changes will be billed at the standard hourly rate. Additional search engine optimization (SEO) services are available for additional fees.
APPTETA.COM cannot be held responsible for search engine results.

If any problem is discovered or error has been made, please report the problem to us immediately so we may take appropriate action. We cannot be responsible for perceived loss of revenue under any circumstances. Content changes resulting from a client’s error and/or problems related to third party vendors or technology, such as hosting servers or browser software may result in additional charges.
