Rediff pushed it’s redesigned site, a few months back and the design was in all respect, the boldest ever decision taken by any content company – i.e. to go minimal and promote the ‘*broken* search box.
So what was the impact of redesign? Did it increase the pageviews? Unique Users?
Well, data does the talking.
Average page per visitor increased since July
Total Visits shows signs of recovery
So what has come down?
One of the most important stat (for a content portal), i.e. the number of Unique Users. The savior is that there hasn’t been any significant drop and one might expect a bounce back, now that pageviews are showing some signs of recovery.
So here is the question – has redesign worked for Rediff? Or are pageviews an after-effect of ‘those extra clicks’, visitors have to go through, owing to the ‘minimalistic’design?
The real-$ impact will be known in the coming months when Rediff will announce it’s quarterly report, but overall the site doesn’t seem to do too bad with the redesign.
Having said that, will the redesign revive Rediff? What’s your opinion?
