What Works on an Author Webpage

I’m fascinated by the statistics generated from my mom’s author page (www.gailmartin.wordpress.com). Here’s how it falls out:

Read an Excerpt from Gail’s Book 130
Gail’s Advice for Writing Family Memorie 73

Media Attention for Gail’s Book 17

Press Release for the Book 3

Obviously the READ AN EXCERPT is a big hit. The excerpt that I put was a very short essay from the book about Mom’s pet badger. Everyone loves an animal story, so I figured it was a good one to get them to click further on the BUY THE BOOK link.
