six things that make me leave your blog fast

Every blog needs visitors, and those visitors need the best experience, or they may leave for good.

Why everyone visitors to your blog have different intents. It’s quite bad when they leave unsatisfied. That’s their expectations are not met. Or they meet a bad experience on the way.

It may not be that your content is poor. But many things can contribute to a poor visitors experience.

Let’s look at some of the most boring.

1. A dark background with light writing

Or even worse… colored writing on a dark background. Yikes!! Talk about mega eye strain and a headache! The thing is I, like most other people, am relatively lazy when it comes to websites. I want the information to be presented to me in the easiest way for me to read – if I have to strain to read your website then I’m not going to put in the effort and I’ll head off somewhere else.

Using a white background can be the best fit for your blog. It’s good on the eye.

2. click next to see more pages

Many bloggers use this trick to get more clicks, which only makes their visitors wowed to not visit their blogs anymore.

Bah this one frustrates me the most. If I have clicked through to your post it is because I want to read it. I don’t want to have to keep proving how much I want to read it by clicking again and waiting again for load times. I want to read it all in one go, right in front of me.

This honestly will make me leave your site straight away. I refuse to be baited into clicking more on a site just to improve their stats. There’s nothing I want to read bad enough that will make me click through on one of these.

3. newsletter popups you can’t click off.

If I have just landed on your site – haven’t even read the first sentence, and a pop up comes up asking me to subscribe to your newsletter, and I can’t click off the pop-up, then I’m going to be leaving your site.

You haven’t offered me anything of value, I don’t even know you yet, I don’t know what you’re talking about, I don’t know what your message is – and you want me to sign up for a newsletter? I don’t mind if you’re offering me something awesome… but just a newsletter?

There’s no denying it – like them or not, pop-ups work. But… and this is a big but… not all pop-ups are the same.

4. Ads blocking me from where I want to click.

Everyone wants to make a living from their content. Sometimes monetization can be against you. And set your readers in an incredible confusion.

Not only is this against the rules for ad networks like Google Adsense, but it is also incredibly frustrating. If you have an ad that shows directly below your drop-down menu, and I can’t click on the topic I want to read about because I keep clicking on the ad below instead, then I won’t be coming back to your site.

5. Constantly trying to sell me something

Again, I don’t even know you yet and you’re already asking for my money? Before I buy anything from anyone I want to know more about it than just the title and price.

You should be using your blog to show me how amazingly knowledgeable you are and prove that I’d be better off if I had your product, then there’s a higher chance of me handing over my money. Not so much if you berate me into buying it.

6. Over design.

It is common knowledge that clean, clear, and crisp website designs are the way to go. Increase your whitespace and make your blog visually pleasing and I’ll stick around to read anything you have to say.

If I’m struggling to find your blog post through the ten advertisements, eight blogging award buttons, six background images, four-link parties, and two pop-ups then I’m going to get a little frustrated.
