What do these two websites have in common?
Both of these website are missing a huge amount of traffic to their sites by not empowering their home page. They both have 0 content on the home, take 2 clicks to get to any real content on the webpage.
Ammon calls these splash pages, he related them to a grocery store, with a mime in front reminding people that they are at a grocery store, but not allowing anyoneto enter for 10 minutes. How often are your customers going to return to your grocery store? These websites are loosing lots of ranking power and annoying a lot of their customers.
