The benefits of categories

After moving over to my new categorisation method of having them listed up the top there (eg. Blogging, Dating, Spirituality, etc), I discover that the most popular category is 'Dating'. Now that the category is so obvious, visitors are exploring them. In just the past 24 hours, I've had a number of people accessing the dating category, with 2 of them spending a large amount of time exploring all the articles.

Interestingly, the most popular article of all time is 'How to make your Asian girlfriend eternally happy', with a lot of people finding it by searching for related terms. There must be a lot of people out there searching for information on asian girlfriends and how to make them happy. I might have to do a few more articles on this.... And dating in general.

So the benefits of 'obvious' categorisation is that it shows your visitors what kind of content is available on your site/blog, and leads them to view more of it. The Categories drop-down menu I used to have was useless. In fact, I'm not even sure anyone actually looks at those drop-down menus on the right there, 'cause no one seemed to go to any of the content they pointed to. This new form of categorisation is much better.
