How long is the home page of your main site?
A few days ago GPWA member dannyx started an interesting thread asking about the different length of home pages. Two approaches were mentioned. One, the home page is a showcase for the website, attractive, not too long, and not too much text. And two, the home page is a long page with lots of text and keywords. For this week's poll, we ask about the length of the home page on your main site. Besides voting in the poll, be sure to share your opinions about the topic.  View poll
