If it has links to internal or external sources, then make sure all of these links are fully working. You should periodically check for broken link and remove/replace them with new pages.

  • Your Website Lacks Content.

Gone, the days of having a website with just general information about your business. Customers today are spending more and more time on the internet, and they tend to search information about different products and latest market trends to feed their information hungry brains.

Testimonials


  • I contacted Whitehats through their website and was immediately served by a customer service agent. I briefly explained my concern and gave my contact details. The same day in the afternoon I was contacted by an IT engineer and we scheduled a date for a visit to my apartment. Upon arrival the next day the engineer was polite, professional and confident and got the job done in an appropriate manner. I’m very satisfied with the service provided by Whitehats and plan to contact them in case of any future services. Therefore I would also recommend them for any IT related services.
