It’s finally here, Thesis! I’ve been waiting for weeks to make my switch to Thesis but I decided to just wait a few more days and do it today, so that I would have had around 2 months of blogging before I started using Thesis. Now it will probably be easier to spot any changes in traffic due to the Thesis switch. I must admit, I doubt it will offer much change traffic wise, as I already used the All In One SEO Pack before, but we’ll see.
Just a heads up though, I’m not completely done yet. I still have some work to do with my sidebars, I’m not happy with the way they are currently organized and I doubt that I will really need that big list of categories out there as well, so that’s one of the things I will need to fine tune over the next few days as well as trying to improve the pages that I link to in the top menu, so their content is presented in a better way, hopefully with an image and excerpt.
I’ve also changed my Top Commentators widget to show top 6 top 10 commentators instead of just 5 as well as resetting it once a month, so be sure to come back every now and then if you want to keep your spot in the top 6 top 10 🙂
I’ll of course be doing a review of Thesis at a later time once I’ve had a chance to really try it out and maybe also been able to determine whether or not it had a direct impact on my (search engine) traffic.
Please sound off in the comments how you like my new theme – but before you go rough, keep in mind, I’m not completely done yet 🙂
