The navigation aspect of your blog should also be clear and user-friendly. People hate to hunt for information on a site and will be tempted to leave in case they do not find what they are looking for easily. Make sure that the most popular pages on your site are easily accessible from your secondary navigation.

Site Speed

This is an aspect of websites that have become important following the Google Panda update. Indeed this is a factor that big G now uses in order to rank websites.

Indeed the purpose of a website is to inform your customers about the existence of your company and it will be stupid to miss this information. To make things easier for your visitors you might want to add a contact form where they will be able to contact you from your website rather than opening their email client.
