With that in mind, following are 10 of the easiest and most common ways that people ruin their blogs. Avoid them!

  1. Too many ads
  2. Blinding colors or colors that are too light to read
  3. Pop-up ads – make them go away!
  4. Keyword stuffing – you’re not fooling anyone with that list of keywords stuffed into the sidebar or footer.
  5. Clutter – where’s the real content?
