Experiment to Discover if One Page Themes or Full Page Themes Hurt SEO

We will be doing an experiment to discover if One Page Themes or Full Page Themes hurt SEO and if normal themes are better.

Do One Page Themes Help or Hurt or SEO?

For this experiment we will be using our current Full Page image them called Full-Width by STK on this site and our parent site 4mmmm4.com, to do this we will be adding our current statistics, then we will change the theme of the Online Business Reef to a more conventional theme like Customizr or another.

And then we will leave the Full-Width them on the 4mmmm4.com and measure the results over the month.

THE EXPERIMENT BEGINS

So now we will measure these from June 24, 2014 until July 24, 2014 and see if doing a couple of things will make a difference.

  • By changing the theme on the Online Business Reef, will we get more traffic.
  • We will make no changes to the control 4mmmm4.com site except to add some portfolio images and a few posts.
  • We will add only a few posts to the GchanMako site.
  • We will try and double the number of posts on the Online Business Reef

With these changes we hope to get as much traffic on the Online Business Reef site as the GchanMako site has. To do this we will pay special attention to key word research. Increase the amount of posts with those key words and also focus on writing specific content for online business entrepreneurs.

We will revise the stats on 7-24-2014 to see if our efforts and SEO has paid off,.I have no idea how this experiment will turn out and we are merely doing this to demonstrate on exciting principal every online entrepreneur should posses. And that is the ability to try new things, or go with their intuitions, and TEST them out to see if they will work. Then you expand on the things that work.

So we have decided on a free theme (to keep up with utilizing only low cost themes) called MH Magazine Lite which is a magazine style theme. We have set it up mostly and will start to see how it works out in driving an Alexa rating for us.
