Does Your Website Need a Pimp?

Once upon a time, there was a show that used to air on MTV, PIMP MY RIDE! It’s probably still been broad-casted but my days of MTV are over so I’m clueless as regards that. In case you didn’t get to see any episode, the show picks the car of a young folk in Los Angeles or anywhere else around Southern California, the car is totally out of shape and almost completely dejected. I say ‘almost’ because it still moves at least, though it looks like King Kong’s foot stool.

I’m sorry for dropping the word “ugly” on you like that, but if your website is hideous, users may not spend a minute even if it’s got good content. If you’re using a CMS (Content Management System) like WordPress, changing your website themes can really make a whole lot of difference.

  • PAGE SPEED & BACK LINKS

If a user refuses to visit the next page on Google because of time, you should already know you’d lose such user after 10 seconds of trying to load your homepage. A lot of websites which load fast have even better content than yours, so there’s no reason for a user not to ditch your retard website. This leads to a high bounce rate. Stuff like bad hosting, large image size contributes to this factor. On the other hand, optimizing your images, CSS JavaScript minification and leveraging on browser cache will help solve this. The Google page speed test helps you know how fast your page is and if it’s mobile friendly. Also, there is nothing more annoying than a broken link. Users get discouraged if this keeps occurring and it puts them off immediately. Of course, you won’t get them back tomorrow.

  • YOUR WEBSITE LACKS CONTENT

Creating meaningful content for your website is one of the best gifts you can give to your website. It helps to keep your audience engaged and they also want to check back for more.
