Been watching a couple of my theme sites. Whilst my doorways have had limited shelf space, the theme sites are starting to bring in the qualified traffic.
They are moving up, moving up, moving up! Slowly, over time they will be on the first page. These sites have not appeared to be negatively affected by movement around them (algo changes or re-indexing). My doorways have all dropped (to varying degrees)
This fits into themes: doorways are much more susceptable to movement and ripples around them then a consistently built themed site.
How quick is access in this forum!!! Brett - excellent job.
Are your theme pages pulling from a broader set of keywords? What I have found is there are fewere 'all star' pages, but there are more in lower rankings across the board. Pages that used to get buried, now show up in the 40-100 slot and pull a little traffic here and there.
Speed is addictive in a forum system - thanks Pete.
