Many of you own a blog and always want to improve its situation; may how much developed your site is.

So in this article, I am going to tell you 5 quick, time-saving, easy and effective ways to improve the situation of your blog by making it more reachable with better content.
1. Tweaking of Your Existing Theme
The outlook of your site does matter a lot in today’s world as it influences hugely on your rankings. Even if you have limited content in your site, if the look is attractive and approachable towards the readers, it is bound to increase the traffic in your site.
So firstly, go through the whole site and write down all the basic weak points you notice. Try to change them. You can tweak your present theme which can help you a lot in changing the appearance of your site. Try to change your site’s typography and if possible, make or find a new logo. Always keep in mind that your articles are not appearing clumsy to the reader as the main attraction of the readers is always on your articles.
2. Test Your Site Speed
Do you have any idea how fast do your site load? If it’s slow, what is slowing down your site? If you do not have any idea about it, try a ‘Site Speed Analysis’ (Google it) today and isolate it out. Then the next step is to eliminate whatever is hampering your site’s speed and that’s it! You will increase your site speed drastically without even paying a penny or moving hosts.
If you have an idea which files are slowing your site down but you cannot remove them; then try to host them on Amazon Cloudfront or Rackspace cloud, or use CDN services to vastly increase their download speed in the site quite cheaply.

Most of the readers like to read out day to day content. Many of them are regular readers also in your site as there is something that is available in the static pages of your site.
If you check the traffic stats of your site, you will find that your static pages are quite popular but they fall out of date as they are not written constantly or frequently.
