Yep, sites do all sort of cryptic things to indicate the page continues elsewhere. Mostly those efforts confuse me because the clues (and that's the best I'd call them) don't use plan text. Wonder how many "regular shoppers" understand bread crumb symbols >>>, for example?
It would be interesting to catalog all the commonly used methods. No doubt traffic decreases (plummets?) after page 1, but it would also drop in the lower part of a very long page.
I'm the kind of guy who is still confused by those cryptic, but now universal, symbols on a tape player, ¦¦, >> etc And "EURO" type traffic signs sometimes baffle me...at high speed!
There MUST be a better way!
They need to know what you got before they get there!
If not you need to convince them to use the search because you have what they want, no matter what it is they want.
That is a free one on me, next one cost money. ;)
I think I'm going to try to get about 50 products to a page and if it goes above that, i'll go to the next page. If I have over 100 products in a subcategory, i'm going to try and break it down even further and create more subcategories. That's the best solution I can think of at this point.
I see a lot of:
Page 1 2 3 next >>
Also, what if page one took a long time to load because it had 50 products on it. If you have to wade through 5 pages to get to what you're looking for its going to become a drag (problem with amazon imho, even after search)
