Jonathan, Luke, Steve and I were looking at analytics for ondesire.com last night. After posting the Premise page on Friday, bounce rate shot back up to 40%. The point of looking at bounce rate is to see how effective the landing page is, but several factors could be influencing the results – other than the project totally sucking. For one thing, analytics code needs to be added to the html for the video so it can be tracked.
Feeling superstitious, I altered the premise to be more focused and moved the character development off into it’s own link with an intro. I also won’t cross post any more analytics progress reports to http://artisthouse.com/domains_core/desire – it’s not relevant to the experience of ondesire to see all the wiring hanging out – it’s confusing enough just trying to communicate the concept. Showing the jury rigged tangle is what holyboners.com is all about.
