Imagine a one month old blog hitting thousands of visitors every day and a blog like yours (may be more than 6 month old) not getting much traffic or unique visitors?
How could you feel if that happens to your blog?
Your efforts, hard work all will vanish within a short time. If you don’t want to lose your first time readers or want to stick your old readers to your blog the best way is
READ the below content ;)
These are the major reasons to go away from your blog immediately. Don’t do these things and concentrate on overcoming them.
Why Your Visitors Don’t Visit Your Blog Again?
1. Boring content:
You are boring your readers terribly with your writing. OK you are working hard to develop your blog and updating it as often as possible though but it doesn’t mean your content is good enough.
You need to work hard to develop your writing skills, you have to make a habit of reading famous blogs to enhance your skills.
“Writing is the first esset for anyone who want to make their blog successful”, don’t you agree? It’s not only add value to your blog, but also creates a brand for you.
Don’t let your readers jump away to other blogs by having bad content or bad writing skills.
2. Bad blog design:
Most blog designs are terrible and are like one of the most useless websites. I skipped many blogs just because they have bad design/theme even though good content. No one will be interested to read your blog for a long time, if you have awkward blog design.Make your blog look simple, minimal and make it easy to read.
If you have a good and appealing blog design then your readers or first time visitors will come back to your blog even though you have appealing content (not every time though)..So, make them stick to your blog by having a good blog design.

3. You have a really bi….g domain name:
What if you enter into a blog having a domain name like this..
www.barbaradoylesmysteryintrigueandmurderwknd.co.nz (it really is there, check out if you want)
Even if you are an Einstein you can’t remember this name.. ;)
Then how can your first time visitors remember and come to your blog again if you have such a long domain name??
Make your domain name short or buy a domain name which is easy to remember and type if you really want to build a profitable blog.
4. Bad navigation:
If you have a bad navigation for your blog then you are running in dark forest without having a lamp ;)
Your readers will easily run away from your blog if you don’t have proper navigation.
Quick ways to fix your bad blog navigation:-
- Crazy fonts drive your readers crazy: Never use crazy fonts which are tough to read. Use easy to read fonts in your blog. And don’t make your font size too short or too big. Use medium font sizes and your readers should be convenient to read your content.
- Don’t use too many sharing buttons: One proper plugin is enough to cover your blog content to easy to share. Moreover if you use too many sharing buttons if effects your blog loading time.
5. Not enough updates:
One other major reason for not getting unique visitors or leaving your blog immediately even the old readers is – you are not updating the blog often.
What if the same readers come to read your blog after 5 days and find the same content which you wrote on “How to Eat Human Brains Without Spoons” :P
Will they read it again? They will go away immediately. So try to update your blog at least twice or thrice a week.
And yeah, don’t forget to welcome your first time visitors. :D
