As mentioned in the last post, I recently published a site for our trip to Maui. The site consists of 7 pages. When looking at how many times each page has been visited, the numbers are kind of surprising to me. These are the numbers (visits) for each page (at the time of writing this):
Napili Bay: 65
Bike Haleakala: 63
Old Lahaina Luau: 62
The Road to Hana: 52
The links to the individual pages are clearly laid out at the top of the pages, yet it’s clear that all but the home page, and the photos page are being passed over by most people. Why is that? Do people not see them? Are people not interested?
As a web designer this is especially interesting to me. What makes people click? Given that this site has not (as of yet) been picked up by any search engines… and the only people visiting it are people that I have referred (either directly, or through my blog posts), you would think that most of the pages would be visited at a somewhat equal rate. But, that’s not the case… some people don’t even make it past the home page. I find that a little odd.
