No design is perfect; the current template, “Ocean Mist,” displays links to other posts when readers read a full post, when they link from another site. Consequently, I expected, a few people might click on another post at this blog while they were here. Traffic to other displayed links has picked up by about 50%.
One surprise has been the increased traffic to the “Why Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub” page, which is the “about” post for this blog. Traffic is up by several multiples to that post. There are no particular revelations there. It’s just providing more information.
In those respects, the experiment with a new template is a success. Everything should be so easy.
