EXAMPLES and REVIEWS

 

This page lists the sites on which this business (David Miller Web Designs) is listed and/or reviewed.

 

The list is here so you can see examples of what these listings and reviews look like, so you can see what these sites are on which we are (and you can be) listed, and so you can actually submit a review of our business if you are our customer.

 

Actually, anyone can submit a review, even if they are not a customer, but it is considered bad form to do so.

 

Here are the sites. There is a short descriptor next to each site's link, but the best way to tell what's on each site is to click on the link and check it out.
