If you are wanting your website or blog to reach the Apex in its Niche then I have one word you need to always remember and that word is “Easy”. Why is the word “Easy” the most important word to remember you ask? Well the word easy describes what many website and blog visitors like in a website.
People want a website that is easy to navigate through to find what they are looking for, easy on the eyes (a good looking site) and that is one that is easy to remember.
Now when you have your site designed from top to bottom with these things in mind then you will create a site with a better user experience and that will lead to visitors staying on your site longer and it will also increase the chances that that site visitor will return in the future as well as possibly telling others about your site.
This will increase the traffic (Visitors / People) to your website or blog and help it grow in popularity which will help your site to start climbing the rankings in the search engine websites and help it become a top site in its niche.

First lets talk about the navigation aspect of a website or blog. One way to keep visitors on your site and to keep them coming back to your site is to make it easy to navigate around. One mistake many site owners do is to lay the site out in what is the best way for them to navigate around in. Since you were the one who designed the site you know where to look so it seems like the navigation on your site flows well. Instead you need to look at the site as if you had never been to that site before and never seen a site laid out that way.
Ask yourself if you had never seen the site before would you be able to find what you are looking for on that site. If the answer is no, or not easily then you will need to do some site adjustments to make it easy to navigate for people who have never been on your site before.
Next you will want to design your site so that the colors, design and layout are easy on the eyes and will look good to new and returning site visitors. An aesthetically pleasing (good looking) site will help the visitors of your website or blog remember the site and enjoy the time they spend looking around your site. Always try to design from your visitors point of view when deciding what looks good and it never hurts to ask the honest opinions of family or friends. A good looking site will make a good impression on its visitors and a good impression can lead to return visits by that site visitor.
One last thing to think about when designing your site as well as choosing the domain name is to think about how to make your site easily remembered. Producing a good looking, well laid out and designed site is part of making your site memorable. Another thing that falls under that area is the domain name you choose to use. Always try to pick something unique that won’t be confused with another site but there are other things to think about when deciding on a domain name.
Think about how easily the name is to pronounce, how easily it is to spell and how well the name goes with the type of niche your website or blog is in. A good, catchy, easily spelled and remembered domain name can make a big difference in the growth of your site so make sure to put a lot of thought into your site’s domain name.
Now there are many things that can make a website or blog a successful one but the things discussed above can have a big impact on that success. Make sure to put some thought into all of these aspects of your website or blog and that will go a long way towards helping it reach the Apex in its Niche.
Good Luck and may your website or blog reach the Apex in its Niche!
