==> If the website content is old, update it so as to attract more buyers.
==> Filling in large white spaces or de-cluttering if it looks too busy: You should fix ads or images that overlap or bump up against text.
==> Make sidebar content similar in length to the main article.
==> Test all the menu options, tools, widgets, links and ensure you fix or delete any broken links.
==> Check how the mobile version looks like and if it is not too good, consider making it more mobile friendly.
