SEO Tip #4

Create a simple lay out for your website. The easier it is to navigate, the more users will visit and return to your site. Google robots also travel through your website to look for broken links or complicated website architecture. But, think about it; it is not fun to go to a website and get confused because you only end up clicking back to the Google search results.

The easiest way to achieve a user-friendly website is to build a simple site map. Another solution, yet more expensive, would be to implement A/B testing. This testing enables to users to look at multiple versions of your site and give you feedback on what page or buttons are easiest to navigate.
