Many times, when an SEO is just starting out, he or she faces the problem of how to write an SEO contract. I originally found an old sample SEO contract on a forum somewhere (sorry, do not remember where) and made a few minor changes to it. While I rarely have the need to resort to such a formal document, it is always handy to have around. Usually, I have an informal agreement with a client (consisting of a few emails back and forth), and that has always worked out fine for me. Still, there are some people that may require a much more formal agreement, so if you are need of one, you can download the one I use and adapt it to your needs. This is a MS Word document. All information that you absolutely should change is within parentheses. Make other changes as necessary to fit your situation. Download the Sample SEO Contract here.
