So, a while back I was concerned about the huge number of people on BifSniff Cartoons who only stayed for 0-30seconds. It was consistently up over 80% going as high as 86%... I looked around some stats of sites and blogs that have open stats... can't remember which ones now, but BoingBoing was one.. anyway all the research was somewhat comforting - they were all really high for the 0-30 second visitors. If you look at Boing Boing stats even now, at time of writing it's currently 78.4% Comforted, but still not happy, I made some simple changes to the site to try to keep people longer - one major change was the '5 things to do' on the homepage. I realised our home page was very passive so I put some simple links to stuff on the homepage to engage people... Anyway, it's hard to judge cause and effect, because there was other stuff happening at the time, but since the changes we're down to 68/69% for the 0-30s. I have some other vague long term plans for further stickiness, because I want to see that number reduced even more... I want people hanging around longer and getting to know us better! In the long term we hope to develop some interactive BifSniff stuff and the like, but any further short term stuff we can do I'd love to hear about it. Anyone want to share ideas, or share stats, or just discuss in general?
