For those of you that have visited my site this morning, you may have noticed its been down. I’ve been upgrading the WordPress System from version 2 to 2.01. It’s supposed to deal a bit better with heavy work loads, so they say, we’ll see if its true. Can’t notice any other real big changes. Bit of a let down after uploading the new files at 0.08kbps!
I’ve also relooked at the navigation of my site, I have had a few requests for a more visible “Home” button. So at the top, in my site header, you will now see some more visible basic navigation buttons. Click away, I hope this lowers my bounce rate. Impressed hey? I’m getting down with the lingo. For those of you that don’t know, here is the description of this cool SEO word, as per Recommended Web Tools:
Bounce rate indicates what percentage of people ENTERED at this page and then left the site all together. Ideally, webmasters want visitors to continue visiting their site no matter which page they arrive on. A low bounce rate means visitors moved on to another page on the site from this page. A high bounce rate means visitors arrived at this page but were not compelled to continue visiting/browsing the site.
I have a question for all you developers, designers, and optimizers – why is my page rank still 0? Any ideas anyone? I’m getting good traffic, I have a good quite a few back links, but alas, my page rank, she will not change!
This is probably a very boring post to the average reader, but I hope it benefits some of you. If you haven’t upgraded your WordPress, it’s pretty painless, go to WordPress.org.
