Considering everything it takes to get visitors to your site in the first place, does it make any sense to have measures in place that are actually driving them away in a heartbeat? Absolutely not, and there are certain easy remedies for these missteps. Let’s take a look at some of these and the way you can fix them.

Why people abandon your site and what to do about it

Here a number of reasons commonly found for site abandonment, and what you can do to fix it.

    • Site takes too long to load – Some studies indicate that you have as little as 3 seconds to get your site loaded, or a majority of people leave. Your main goal is to make sure that your site loads quickly, and gives you a chance to be viewed.
    • No mobile – We are increasingly a society connected to our mobile devices. A full 50 percent of us now search via mobile, and about two-thirds of email is currently opened there. Enough said?
    • Is your site experience difficult? – If you make your visitors jump through a bunch of hoops to go where they want to be, you’ll learn that many won’t bother. Take a close look at this.
    • Site security questions – If your visitors are nervous about the security of your site, they’ll be unlikely to enter any sensitive information there, like for instance a credit card number… Look into putting appropriate site security badges to help with that.
    • Awful navigation – If you can’t reasonably get around your site without bringing on a headache, you may need a navigation makeover. Make it as simple as possible to get to the important parts of the site your visitors presumably want to go.
    • No purpose – Why does this page exist? If they can’t tell that in an instant, they will dump you for another. Don’t confound the issue by having scads of ads all over the page, most of which take way from the point.
    • Nothing to see here, move along – Nothing is worse than arriving hopefully on a site to see content that’s old and out of touch, no social interaction and no one commenting or worse, answering those comments. I know what I would do: how about you?
