Zeus, my stats show a marked decline when a page becomes "not that interesting any more". Would a fashion retailer continue to stock a product that people weren't that interested in any more? I don't think so - they'd clear it out to make room for the hot fashion items that sell much better. To take the example to an extreme, think of a fashion shop that only stocks items people aren't that interested in compared to one that only stocks the latest hottest fashion items. Which one would most people say is better quality? I think the latter.
Taking the pink/blue widgets example, my stats show that people don't like wading through lots of pages that are basically the same subject/product. They seem to prefer distinct, simple choices. One page on widgets that gives the option to buy it in blue or pink is better than one page for each colour.
