Have you ever visited a blog and while you’re there you feel welcome and comfortable? There are lots reasons that make you uncomfortable when in any blog. There are lots of webmasters who try to make their site more attractive by displaying lots of flash, animations, videos email subscriptions box etc.
Do you really think your blog readers will like that? Ever think of it? No? Well, There are 4 factors I think that makes visitors uncomfortable on a blog, these are:
Blog Loading time:
When a reader has opened any page on your blog, and the page is rich with heavy pictures, flash, animations or videos then it will take lots of time to load up. Readers really hate slow blog or slow loading blogs. And its very dangerous for your blog, because you might have very few visitors due to loading time.
For this, try to compress your images with yahoo smushit or any other programs, if you are are using flash then you should know flash cant read by search engine bots. Sometime flash can attract readers but not always.
Too Much Advertising ( PPC and Banner)
By Advertising bloggers use to earn money through their blogs, but remember you do not overdo or collaborate on PPC ads (text) with banner ads that even seems your blog is only visible advertisements only from the article. Okay to collaborate but not to make visitors feel uncomfortable with the presence of the ads.
For this, arrange the ads, neatly either PPC (text) or any other ad banner.
The existence of Pop Up Ads
Pop ups are ads that appear on the new page. It’s also one of the reasons that make visitors uncomfortable blog. Pop Up Ads can only come from the widgets that you attach.
Unstructured Blog is a blog that does not mean neat as for example the distance between one content to another content is too far or too large widgets from the space that is supposed to be and passing the dividing line between the widgets and content and much more.
Make your blog as neat as possible so that visitors feel comfortable while browsing your blog, if your blog have too many ads a good idea is to cut the unnecessary ads that might annoying for readers.
