Book Reviews

The Chanticleer Read Reviews Page is Receiving More Traffic than Ever!

We are happy to report that Chanticleer Reviews’ new web site design is a great boon to those who have reviews posted with us.

The new format on the Read Reviews page is gaining new visitors by leaps and bounds with its easy scrolling format.  Visitors are lingering on the Chanticleer Read Reviews page longer and clicking through to read the entire review that has been selected.

How can we tell this? By watching Chanticleer’s Google Analytics screen. It’s more fun than TV! We can see exactly which reviews are being clicked on and read. Then we watch to see if the visitor continues on to the book’s Amazon page or, even more exciting, to visit the author’s web site. Watching visitors from all over the world click on reviews is thoroughly addictive. And totally awesome for the Chanticleer Community of Authors and Readers!
