I think I have a fairly good sticky ratio on my site, at 4.5 page views per visitor. It was about 2/3 rds higher when the US economy was booming. Just curious how some have handled trying to improve the ratio?

If we could only have all weekends it would be better. Looking at logs people seem to be more relaxed on the weekends when viewing my site. They actually spend more time looking for what they searched for.

I use bolded headings and try to keep the fluff down. Incude some action shots. The site content is more on the "how to" side. Most of the major content is above the fold. I also have a good search function, but it's not used as frequently as I thought it would be. Could be the location...upper right hand of page.


No major changes on site and navigation remains the same.
