10 Tips on how to improve your user experience
Google places a lot of emphasis on the website user experience when it comes to ranking your site, better user experience better rankings, more traffic more sales! Here are my top 10 tips on how to improve your user experience.
1. Optimize the speed of your pages
By making images the same size, by using less plug-ins, by using a responsive theme that works on mobile just as effectively as on a desktop.

White spaces are useless to you and your website visitor, make sure that you make full use of all the available space on a page.
3. Bullet points
Use bullet points to create interest in your article
4. Make use of images
Use properly optimized images to break up content and keep your visitor engaged.
5. Use a catchy headline
In this day and age people click away easily, you don’t have long to catch their attention so think up a catchy headline.
Consistency is the key, so when you find what works stick to it.
7. Delete 404’s
Search engines don’t like to see a 404 or a post that doesn’t load, Google console can help you to find pages that don’t load.
Use hyperlinks to join up your relevant pages and outbound links to other authorative sites.

Make it easy for a user to contact you with a contact form at the header part.
10. Call to action
