The death of the home page has been greatly exaggerated
from Marketing Land
Talk to content publishers, and they'll often bemoan the fact that few visitors reach their sites through the home page any more. The real action, they'll say, is from "side door" visits directly to a specific story, via a link shared by social media, texting, email, or from a topic-centered search. This "death of the home page" wave became an accepted wisdom after mid-2014, when a leaked chart from
The New York Times
showed the steep plunge in that newspaper's home page visitors.
