    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.
    Comfortable Visitor 4 Factors that Make Visitors Feel Comfortable

    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.

    Un-Structured Blog

    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.
    Conclusion
    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.

    I think popup ads are the biggest problem on some blogs. No one likes popup ads.

    Navigation is also an important factor. A visitor should be able to find what they want immediately without spending time searching for it. Visitors are so impatient that if they do not find what they are looking for instantly then they will leave your website.

    So your navigation should be properly arranged into categories and sub-categories. It is also a good idea to display popular posts prominently so visitors can get access to your best material easily.

    I think site speed and pop-up/ads are the most important!
    As people get annoyed and leave your website soon resulting in increased bounce rate. Nice points, btw (:

    I agree with you but if you have two post with same content, which one will you prefer to read. Of course with well organized because your eye likes it to read it.

    No one like to read which is unorganized. I don’t…. :)

    Nice points though I am wondering, you didn’t talk about the content and its quality in the above points. The very reason any visitor come and visit your blog is for the quality and informative content. You will find many well established blogs providing excellent quality content but are very high on advertisements as well.
    Thanx for this writeup, though.

    lots of advertisement decreases page load speed and user experience, one must avoid these things mainly.
