    • Hey Mohan,

      I just outsource it, buddy, my design skills are not awful, but… best left to those with experience.

  14. Hi,

    Nice infographic and helpful to have various site responsiveness elements together. And the next challenge is yet to come, mobile responsiveness for our sites.

    • I think that challenge is already here, jury is still out on whether it's worth adding AMP to your site though. Best to stick with responsive for the time being is my thinking.

  15. Thank You Chris Naish,I think i am late to this site found that i can learn a lot about blogging from here.Thanks again for the article and the info graphic help us to understand the way easily.

  16. Great post Chris,

    Blog traffic is one thing every webmaster wants in a large quantity, and most times, it’s seen as the most difficult side of building a successful blog. However, there are various little things that if properly taken into consideration, will boost your traffic beyond your imagination.

    One those things is to increase the perceived value of your blog, and make it to be very user-friendly. This is because if you don’t give your users an awesome experience on their first visit, there is a very big possibility that they won’t visit again. And remember, we all want those returning visitors, they’ll definitely make the search engines to know that we’re really providing value on our blog.

    The infographic here already highlighted all the important things to pay attention to in order to enhance a blogs usability. And from experience, one of the most critical things to work on is a blog’s loading speed. If your blog delays to load even for a seconds, it’ll instantly turn your visitors off and also affect your search ranking.

    Furthermore, it’s also important to ensure your blog is very responsive as the infographic also stated. If all the tips mentioned here are well implemented, there’s no iota of doubt that your blog will become successful.

  17. Hi Chris, another fantastic topic which I always love.

    Your website speed and performance is what makes or breaks your blogging success and Google started giving more importance to faster loading websites.

    If you are running a wordpress blog it's really easy to increase website speed and performance at the same time it's also easy for you to install unwanted plugins and themes that can only degrade your overall website performance.

    So make sure to install only essential plugins that don't affect your website speed or loading times. Also put a limit on your plugins usage I highly recommend you to keep them under 15 plugins or less so you can reduce the burden on your hosting.

    When it comes to increasing your website performance and speed your website hosting plays a huge role. Ever since I moved my site from shared hosting to manage to dedicated hosting my site speed skyrocketed. It's now taking no longer than 2 seconds to load.

    Thanks so much for this post Chris, great infographic. Keep rocking.

  18. It’s really awesome information. Now a day’s digital marketing is booming for all industry. Digital marketing is the service of promoting the products and brands in the world of Internet Marketing to reach customers.

  19. I’ve experienced, first hand, how slow loading reduced traffic. This happened on an e-commerce site I was managing. I had to apply some strategy to increase the speed on Gmetrix.
