Your content should make your visitors happy. This is what Google suggests mostly. When you are writing an article, make sure you are writing it for humans not search engine bots.

#4 Maintain Quality in Website’s Design

Design quality of the website is as important as the quality of the content. If you have wonderful content on your blog and it is awkwardly designed template, what’s the point of creating wonderful content. It should be served to the visitors in a proper way.

Suppose you have prepared a nice dinner for your family and how it would be if you can’t serve it to them properly?

An ideal web design should be easily navigable, screen adaptable and fast loaded. Google also released a list of 25 mobile designing principles for webmasters recently.
