5 Signs your Website is Boring
A website has become a necessity for almost every business and people love websites that are not boring. The subject matter of you website could be anything from Algebra to Zoology and if it is exciting your website traffic will come and stay. If your website is not exciting and your website is indeed boring you will be losing out on the traffic that does come your way.
But how can you tell if your website is boring?
Even accounting websites can be interesting and as we all know accountants can be some of the most boring people but their websites shine. There are primarily 5 signs that your website is boring and here they are.
Your Website is boring because it only has a landing page
Landing pages are valuable when it comes to online and content marketing but if your website is just one page then it is boring. One page is a great start for a website but to engage your audience more than one page is different.
However, there is a current trend to have a website that is almost like one page that scrolls down. These websites are popular but are actually a seamless string of webpages placed in a logical order. Part of the reason for this form of one page website because of the way visitors view it… from their phone
Your website is boring because it has few images and too much text
Modern websites are driven by images; we live in an era where pictures talk. Boring websites have very few images and very often, the images they have are boring pictures. Huge blocks of text are extremely off-putting for visitor and worse still, poorly written copy makes the website experience not just boring but painful.
Your website is boring if it takes a lifetime to load
We live in a world of instant gratification and that means we want things fast and now. Many websites have been poorly optimised and images especially weigh the website down. This is often just bad planning and poor website development and design. Creating a website that loads fast and gets to the point fast is a good way to make your website less boring
Your website is boring because you have out of date content
When people visit your website they have visited for a reason… they are looking for something. If they get to your website and find the content is out of date the website is of zero interest. Having a website with up to date and relevant content is not just vital to make your website less boring but is an important part of your SEO.
Your website is boring when it is has high bounce rates
The final sign that shows your website is boring is the fact it has high bounce rates. Your levels of boring can be measured! Traffic that brings visitors to your site that leave quickly or go nowhere within the website produces high bounce rates. The bounce rates are easily measured and if they are high it is the surest sign possible that your website is boring.
