Theme which is the backbone of every successful site. A theme is the Identity of your blog and moreover a theme is the thing which help you to stand out of the crowd. You must be agree with my point that when someone ask you about YAHOO, MSN, SANTABANTA and any big site then the picture comes in front of your eyes in not other then Theme. A quality theme attract more visitors as compared to messy theme. So what should be the features of a good theme -
1. Easy to Navigate
The Very first and the must have feature for your theme is the Navigation. How easily the visitor can navigate your content and how comfortable he feels while reading your content. Readers are Lazy so they are never in the favour of stressing his mind to concentrate on the contents and to fine the proper content.
2. Good Color Selection
Color selection must be very good. The colors must not be too much dark colors because they look childish. I always prefer light silver color which is the evergreen color and very eye-catching color also. user feel comfort when he see that this site is having proper color combinations.
3. Proper Sidebars
The Sidebar placements should be proper and the placements of different widget should be at proper place. Widgets helps the reader to digg more through your site like Facebook like box gives your reader a clear idea after seeing how much people are following you. The he would like to engage with you and became your loyal reader.
4. Font Selection
Fonts must not be too small or too large. The reason being that your reader don’t want to stick his eyes in the laptop to read your article if your font selection is too much small. I have seen too much sites which have very small fonts and for such site it is true that the readers loose the interest of reading very soon and he is not going to come back at that site again.
5. Loading Time
Loading time on which Google gives the stress. Google don’t rank the site which takes too much time to load because they wants to provide the content to end user as fast as they can. So if your site is taking too much time too load then there is bad news for you that Google don’t prefer those sites to come on first page.
Blog design must be unique and for this you will have to have the little know how of the coding. You can change your theme accordingly and make it unique.
7. Not too much ads
Too much ads distract the mind of reader and the loose the attention very soon. So make a plan and proper placement of your ads so that visitor should feel good.
So these are all the points we should take care if you have any other suggestion then please tell me in the comments I will update soon.
