"A good way to check if the restaurant is any good is to check their restroom's cleanliness". If I am looking for a serious SEO or web design service for my customers after exploring some company's website I usually check their footer to see if it doesn't say © 2012 in the middle of 2013... that is a tiny but good sign that they are not 100% committed and maybe this service is not their #1 priority at the moment. It's not such a huge factor as for example response time but it's one of the details that matters to me.
