Uniqueness of a Homepage is one of the most important things, if someone visits your blog and sees that it looks like any other website of your niche, why will he want to return, what is special about your blog?So make your homepage unique, so that it stands out from rest of your niche.

Making your blog homepage unique does not mean that you should put all sorts of widgets or applications or flash software to make it look like a Collage of Colors, offer widgets that suit your blog, do not unnecessary widgets or tools that do not match the content of your blog.Have lesser widgets on your homepage (learn how to add widgets only on article pages and not on Homepage in Blogger) have a compact look to it, nothing should be sticking out or be out of place.Make your blog symmetrical.

Have a Good Theme
If you are running an informative blog or website, then have a good solid theme which is pleasing on the eye, like the theme we have on our blog, a simple two color theme that is also attractive.If you are running an entertainment Blog or website, then you better use more attractive colors and innovative banners for your blog homepage.

No Ads
Do not have any ads on your Homepage, if you want to, then limit it to just one ad in the homepage as you do not want people to think you only about making money.Also you do not want people to leave your blog from your homepage, you want them to check out the articles you have on your blog, not leave to another website through an ad.
