Category Label in Sidebar Important or Not ?

Mar 5, 2008 by     6 Comments    Posted under: Experiment, SEO Tips

WordPress Category

After checking stats via Google Analytics I have decided to make some changes on my site. I made some renovation with this blog. This is to improve my SEO ( Search Engine Optimization )  as well as to fulfill my aim to reduce my bounce rate. Currently I am having about 75% Bounce rate based on Google Analytics. If I can pull this down to 50%, it will be a good indication that what I am doing is good. My plans are mentioned below :

  1. I will remove the category links at the sidebar , This is because I have been influenced in by this post [ What Every Blogger Needs To know about categories ] , With this I could be able to follow the suggestion of most SEO practitioner , That in order for your site crawl to be effective BOT should find your content in only 2 to 3 clicks.
  2. I will make Must Read Articles at my Side Bar ( To Do )
  3. Blogging Articles both for basic and for advance users ( To Do )
  4. I will feature also the great SEO Tips that I made. ( To Do )

Updates June 07,2008 : I have Put back my categories. After changing my category pages
