A well designed website can not only look nice, but can actually drive a user to the action you want them to take. However when done poorly, it can also be a visitors biggest deterrent. While the definition of a conversion is different to a blogger than, say, an ecommerce site, the principles of design usability and information architecture still apply.

Takeaways
1. How to avoid some of the biggest and most common mistakes bloggers make with their Web presences.
2. Real-world examples of blog mistakes (navigation, design, etc.) as well as those who are doing it right.
3. Actionable information necessary to maximize conversions while also creating a more visibly pleasing Website.
