5 Most Awful Blog Designing Mistakes

So many blogs have failed due to bad (blog) design mistakes that they made. If they would have just taken some more time and put a little more effort into their overall design, their blogs might have done much better, but instead they decided to rush it. If you are in the process of designing your blog or already have a blog and don't know if it was done correctly, then you should know some common mistakes to avoid. Let's take a look at 5 that can easily hurt your blog.






Mismatching colors

A very noticeable design flaw in a lot of these poorly design blogs is that they don't have matching colors. It might be a pretty obvious tip, but a lot of people decide to use their favorite colors instead of choosing a good color scheme. Although your favorite colors might look good to you, they might not to other people. So check out some color schemes before just randomly choosing colors that you like.


Crowded Pages


Keep your pages clean! Blogs that put so many things on their pages just end up hurting themselves. There should never be a reason that you have a sidebar, search bar, 3 banner advertisements, subscription call to action button, internal links, multiple widgets, your archive links, and a pop up add all on the same page. It makes it way to crowded and your readers can't focus on just one thing. You should have a goal for each page. If you want them to sign up for a subscription, then put that near the content and maybe one other thing. If there is too much stuff to look at, they don't look at anything.

Site Structure That Spiders Can't Crawl

You have to make sure to design your site with search engines in mind. If a search engine spider is going through your site, but is unable to access multiple pages, then those pages won't be indexed and your site won't be ranked higher. Spiders use links to get to new content and to check for updates, so use internal links, site maps, and a good navigation system to ensure your rankings.


Images That Are Not Optimized


Images can create a lot of problems if you don't properly optimize them. They will be increased in size, won't be able to be indexed, and will not allow people connected to slow internets get to your site. You should always ensure they are as small as possible to increase your loading times and then you also need to use the proper tags so that search engines can recognize them.

Hard to Use Navigation


Navigation is an essential part to a blog. If your audience comes to your site but then has a hard time finding any content, then how long do you expect them to stay? You should have multiple ways for them to get to the right content. Using your main navigational bar, having sidebar links, footer links, search bars, and anything else you may want to implement will ensure that your viewers look at the content they want.
