This is a serious blunder that is often committed by designers. They make the title first and then write the content. In that way the chances of irrelevancy increase. Title of the content should come first and then the name of the website. It will make your website easy to locate as a results of relevant search made.
Where to contact the concerned person? Site visitors often look for this section and if don’t succeed; decide to shift to some other website. Try to equip your site visitors with detailed contact information so that they consider your business as real and legal. There should be business address, email address and contact phone numbers for the convenience of site visitors.
