There are many reasons why visitors landing on your site may not be hanging around for long. I am going to highlight some of the common pitfalls many websites are guilty of doing.
By fixing or changing some or all of the reasons below, you could see your websites conversion rate improve considerably.
Conversion rate optimisation might be seen as a separate specialism from SEO, but it’s clear that CRO is fundamental for a truly successful SEO project. It’s all very well bringing in shed-loads of relevant traffic but if that traffic isn’t resulting in conversions and making some mulah, your client will soon be questioning the ROI you’re bringing them.

If three of your main competitors are frequently conducting tests, they will be collating extremely valuable data on how visitors react to their web page design.
Depending on whether your glass is half-full or half-empty, Google’s policy from the beginning of April 2008 to include your landing page load time in your Quality Score will either be seen as an opportunity to do the right thing for your web pages or bury your head and curse AdWords for charging you more per click.

There have never been more ways to understand human psychology, or a bigger desire to do so. There are now books for fat people, thin people, smokers, romantics, pickup artists, you name it. You can buy a book on how to stop procrastinating, and also a book on why you should procrastinate. Every possible side of every argument is at your fingertips, and people are devouring them at a rapid pace.
One aspect of a good website design and resulting conversion rate is to make sure your website’s most critical information and actions are placed in a visible location (without scrolling) when a user comes to your website. I will explain where this is and how its helps improve the return from your website.
