Updates take place on either a monthly, weekly or daily basis depending on which Care Plan you use.

Find out more about our Care Plans here!

Our website backups are stored in at least two separate geographical locations using Amazons S3 servers.

Your new WordPress Care Plan will be up and running within 1-2 working days, from the date that you sign-up. We'll run through further details in our new client onboarding process and keep you updated as we add our monitoring services to your website.

Typically, any task that takes 30 minutes or less. This includes tasks such as adding content to your website, installing a new plugin, updating / adding images and more. Major design changes, feature or functionality additions are not included. For these tasks, we'll provide a quote for the time required.

Whilst every care is taken to ensure that websites are safe and secure, nothing you can do to a website will make it 100% safe and secure forever. Sadly, there is always someone out there with malicious intent.

However, in the unlikely event that your website does go offline, we can assist you with restoring the most recent backup to your website.

With our Maintain and Manage plans, we provide additional security clean-up services that are included in your plan's price. 

We provide a support ticket desk for quick response, turnaround and tracking of all support requests. You can submit all requests to help@infinity3.co.uk and we will reply within normal business hours.

Yes! We love WooCommerce websites and we are very happy to provide support for them. Due to the increased complexity and time required to assist with an eCommerce website running on WooCommerce, we would require the website to be on our Business plan.

Yes, we can assist with as many WordPress sites as you would like us to. Each website will have a separate Care Plan. We offer reduced monthly plans for clients with 3 or more websites. Please get in touch with us for more details. The discount is ideal for a business group with a number of websites, freelancers, agencies and more.

All of our WordPress Care Plans include high-Performance Website Hosting. This is hosting that has been specifically designed for WordPress websites, to provide a fast and stable platform for your site. You do not have to use this hosting if you are happy with the hosting company you have in place. We can support your website on any hosting company in the world, although we do recommend a professional WordPress hosting company as you will get better results.

Our support team are currently available Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm (GMT - UK). However, Care Plan customers have the advantage of 24/7 support, including evenings, weekends and public holidays.

All of our WordPress Care Plans include some additional support time each month. The level of time depends on the plan that you pick. At present, this time does not roll over. If you need a plan where time rolls over, please get in touch and we can discuss custom plans that are available from £299/month, per website.

Yes, you can cancel any time, (although we're confident you won't want to!) We just ask for one month's notice. There is no long-term contract here. Whilst we don't want you to leave, we do understand that sometimes business circumstances change.

In the unlikely event of you want to cancel your Care Plan, you can send an email to our support team and we will guide you through the process.

Our WordPress Care Plans were initially offered just to our own website design clients. However, due to our expansion and the success of the Care Plans, we're rolling out the offers to support your website even if it was designed by another company. Our simple ethos is that we want to help business owners with WordPress websites to keep their sites safe, secure and updated.

We'll need to run an audit before we can accept your website onto one of our Care Plans. The audit costs £199 and includes 2 hours of time to resolve any issues that we find with the website that need to be fixed before we can add you to a plan. You will, however, receive a discount on the first month of your new WordPress Care Plan with us.

Citation Cleanup

Yes, we visit Acxiom, Neustar Localeze, Infogroup, Factual and even Foursquare!

You are paying per location or per NAP.

If you have the logins for the properties, we can change them up. The problem is almost no one does. If not, it’s much harder to get the stuff changed, and obviously what we can do differs per directory so it’s not something that we “sell” as something we do on our sales page for the service. The top thing that we’re mainly concerned about is the biz name, address & phone which is really what’s going to mess up your results if anything.

Relationships mostly. We’ve been mailing directories for the better part of 2+ years. Day in, day out. They have come to recognise us, and are usually pretty accommodating for the most part. A small percentage of directories are harder to cooperate with. Usually, these types of places aren’t too important anyways in the grand scheme of things.

SEO Link Building

Each package of link building requires slightly different inputs. We will contact you after you have placed your order explaining what information we require.

This product accepts international and non-English keywords as long as they are roman characters (no Japanese, Chinese, Hebrew, etc). The articles can only be in Roman characters too.

Guest Posting

These are high-quality in-content links so this is a good place to use your exact or partial match anchor text, but ONLY if linking to a value-driven piece of content. Most of these publications have editorial staff who will nix links if they appear SEO driven.

There are a few types of anchors that we don’t accept:

  • Geo-based keywords (IE, dentist NYC, dentist in NYC) as many publishers do not accept these, they look spammy and don’t fit naturally into a sentence.
  • Adult, pharma, or otherwise grey niches
  • Sexual Orientation based niches
  • Casino / Gambling
  • Firearm-related niches
  • Foreign (non-English) keywords
  • Politics and International News

Domain Authority is a scale from 1-100 that rates the likelihood of a website being placed in search engine results. Domain Authority is on a logarithmic scale, meaning it’s easier to go from a DA10 to a DA20 site and more difficult to go from a DA30 to a DA40 site.

Yes. Backlinks to your website are like votes: the more websites that link to you, the better. Not all votes are equal. A link from a DA20 website to yours carries more value than a DA10 link. Both links help even if your website is DA30.

We guarantee to fix or replace any links that go down or bad for 90 days. This usually doesn’t happen, but we put this guarantee here for your protection.

Turnaround for this product is ~30 days. It has a longer turnaround than some of our other products because the entire process is manual. We could do it faster if we did it a cheaper way, but this product is all about quality. At times we can also deliver faster than 30 days, it just depends on the outreach period.

Guest blogging is not something new and many providers offer this service, but beware, there are many services that claim they are guest blogging services but in fact, are not.

Many other services have a blog network that they use for posting your article, where they own all the sites. This can leave a footprint, and for a white hat product like this, that isn’t what you want. We do not use a blog network to post your articles. All the sites we post to are manually contacted and are real sites.

Some services only include links to your site. We also link out to other non-competing authority sites to be as natural as possible.

Beware of cheap guest posting services – you often get what you pay for.

With this product we do not allow approval before posting, however, we have written thousands of these articles and our customers love them. These are high-quality articles written for a real audience, not SEO or promotional articles.

Guest post outreach is the process that we use to find target sites to post content on. We first identify where your post would be most relevant, find a large list of real blogs and websites that could be potential targets. Then we vet them for quality – making sure they are real sites and have good metrics (based on Moz Domain Authority or traffic via SEMRush). We then pitch ideas to the blog and they agree on a suitable topic. We write a quality article and they publish it!

Press Release Service

Writing the press release usually takes between 2-5 days. If you selected the option to approve it, you will need to do that before going to distribution. The distribution should take 7-10 days. You may receive extra links even after you receive your report.

If you are using keywords as anchors, or a phrase containing any keywords we recommend nofollow. If you use naked anchors (http://www.yoursite.com), you can leave it do-follow.

Of course! Please get in touch via our Contact page and we’ll send a sample report for you.

Yes, you must approve it before it goes to distribution. You will be able to see it / edit it / request changes.

Sorry, we do not accept foreign keywords and the target site must be in English.

High Powered Links

If you are building links to your main site, we suggest higher quality link building like Guest Posting. These are more suited for reputation management campaigns or boosting 2nd tier properties.

With our regular link-building service, we go out and build you new mini-authority sites every time. With high-powered links, these sites are already established and have authority.

Yes. We have enough inventory for about anything we’ve worked with in the past. If for some reason we don’t, we’ll let you know.


We try to get as close to your niche as possible. We have a lot of inventory so we should be able to get close.

OBL varies a lot, just like any site. Most only have a couple of links in the sidebar, probably less than 10 OBL however we don’t have a specification on it.

Over 15,000 sites and growing. We only place your links on the best ones.

The average DA is 20-30 but will be at least 15 for every site!

To keep things natural, we suggest focusing on natural, branded, and benign keywords pointed to high traffic pages to drive as much authority as possible to those pages in the safest way possible.
