11 Leading Website Conversion Killers [INFOGRAPHIC]
Posted on June 23rd 2013
You’ve got it going on with your keywords. You’re ranking high. The traffic is coming now. Web-a-palooza. Party time. Cha-chiiiiiing.
Not so fast Master Webmeister. It seems visitors are bugging out before they click a single thing.
This buzz-kill problem is called “bounce” in web speak. I call the culprits “website conversion killers.” You probably couldn’t care less who calls what what. It’s simply infuriating to see your incoming traffic come and go like lightning bugs.
Realize: Getting found won’t get you far.
You want visitors to click and stick.
After being involved in the creation of websites since—well—since websites were created, I’ve come to recognize the website mistakes that discourage new business prospects from getting into the website or getting any closer to becoming a customer. I’ve written about them on my blog, "The Point," and also in an article at Convince and Convert, but now I’d like to present the ugly truth about the web’s leading conversion repellents in a new infographic.
I hope you like it and I hope you share it too.
A great big thank you to the talented designer Marco Giannini, whose work is showcased here at www.infograficanimata.it
