We may have an absolutely sublime design. Sometimes the attraction that the reader feels is found elsewhere. Good content highlighted by a few essential elements that will make reading your blog enjoyable, can sometimes do the trick. These tips are not new revelations or miracle solutions, just a matter of common sense. But, when we start a blog, we often look for perfection and we are attracted by the novelty and functionality of a software. We seek originality at all costs by forgetting the basics. Here are few tips for “How to improve your blog in 2017”. These tips will guide you to basic improvement to your blog.
TAKING CARE OF HEADER
If your site has a customizable header, you fill it properly. Question size first, if your header is 850px wide, we take all the place, stretch its design, make something visible. I have often seen small images that seem lost in the middle of all this space. We try not to exceed 350px in height so as not to bring down much of the page. To measure a space on a web page, because with your double decimeter for pixels that will not be possible, an extension is used on the browser: MeasureIt (Safari) – MeasureIt(Firefox) – Page ruler (Chrome).
WELL TO STUDY ITS SIDEBAR
After making toy with all the widgets you discovered for the first time, came the time to make the point between what is useful of what is superfluous, between what works and what attracts no visitor.
Do you need two sidebars? If one is enough, we regroup everything. Do you need to show the latest articles while they are there left in your blog? Is your sidebar extending far beyond the content of your page? Group some resources or your “blogroll” in a tab, on a dedicated page. Do you need a calendar if you do not set up events or are not a bed and breakfast site? Fort is to think that not. Clean a maximum to leave only what is IMPORTANT
CARING FOR SOCIAL NETWORKS
Are your social networking icons Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and your RSS feeds are visible at a glance? Some of them are at the top of my site + at the top of my sidebar + at the end of each article.
MAKE IMAGES A GOOD SIZE
Try to use the same standard in each of your articles. Images that are the same size and fill the space allocated to your main content. Having a nice image per article preference at first makes you want to continue reading. To crop or resize your photos or images you can use PicMonkey or Pixlr very practical online tools. No need to have Photoshop for that!
CHOOSE GOOD COLORS
One or two dominant colors are chosen which complement or reinforce each other and keep the rest white, black and gray.
One tries to obey a certain logic: the links of the same color, the buttons that call for an action also. So unconsciously the reader who comes back to your blog knows instantly where to click, which item is interactive.
JUSTIFY OR LEFT ALIGNED ITS TEXT
Its text blocks are always adjusted in the same way to give a unit. If your texts are aligned to the left continue with the following. The same applies to justified texts. Avoid focusing as this makes reading more difficult.
DETERMINING THE SECURITIES
You can use the plugin to assign a particular font in your h1, h2, h3 … Let the text in a more readable as possible neutral font (Arial, Georgia, Verdana, Didot) but you can highlight The titles of your articles or those that organize the paragraphs of your articles with a particular color or font.
DO NOT SATURATE KEYWORDS
Precision and quality are preferred to quantity. This avoids that the space allocated to the keywords in the article becomes an extended paragraph of words put side by side without interest, besides that forces you to synthesize your ideas and to organize your site and your archives.
