Security: Anybody (e.g. your competitor) can see what your customer reads, clicks on your website or what info he/she submits to your server.
SEO: Your SEO ranking would severely suffer
Usability: Your customer must be informed that it is not a secure site and instead of viewing your Home Page,
your customer tries to 'bypass the denial page',
and only experienced ones can get to your website. Forget about old customers ➛ the old-school dogma: you must read the manual before doing anything!

1-21. If your competitors get you down in the search list or your website has some tech problems then we must repeat daily, weekly or monthly some of the steps listed below as a common SEO fight. The frequency depends on the competitiveness of your industry.
We have a few business websites. The SEO is great on 2 of those.
Following (Geo-location sensitive) sentences in my SEO contracts (with my customers):
1. Google/Bing search phrase: "Watsonville lock shop" → Pajaro Valley Lock Shop
2. Google/Bing search phrase: "HVAC Carbon county Utah" → Air Temp Heating & Cooling LLC
As the search result on the first page, in the Business Section: My websites have the 1st and the 2nd place respectively or 1st [TSPN]
These SEO results keep my customers happy!
Time Frame and Success definitions
Success measured by [TSPN]: Your business/website is among the top 10 entries of the first search page.
The Predefined Search Phrase(s) should be included in our contract. Time Frame: 2-8 weeks after completion and testing of your PRODUCTION or completed website.
Success and Time Frame depend on the competitiveness of your industry!
For Example, we worked few days and after one-week success was achieved on the following search phrase ”furnace carbon county Utah”
brings my client's website to the second line and the first map pin on a Google map search. You can try it just copy the phrase and paste it to the address bar of Chrome browser
What can affect or destroy Success? (in order of severity):
Domain assigned (DNS A-Record) or relocated to a bad (black-listed) public static IP address.
Your competitors (web developers) work harder and more consistently.
If two competitors start to fight dirty on media or the Internet - they both lose ranking (TSPN)!
Negative remarks or complaints from your customers or ANY Negative Social Media remarks related to your domain name to which the SSL Certificate was assigned.
Expired SSL certificate (affects mostly Google/Bing search). Starting in 2018, SSL is the major requirement for SEO!
The period your SEO is neglected. We charge $50-$250 per month to fight for your TSPN.
Google is the most flexible and progressive company. It changes SEO regulations constantly. Those changes do not affect your TSPN significantly but if you neglect your SEO
for a long time and do not follow the Google changes → you may not see your website on 1st page.
Changing CMS converting your website to a different system 'never affects' the Success, if such changes have been made by a professional webmaster
trained in the SEO field.
