Small improvement: fewer clicks

Feb082008

A number of EveryBlock users have pointed out that it can take too many clicks to get from your block page to the information you’d like to access, particularly in the case of information on other sites: business reviews and Craigslist missed connections / lost-and-found postings.

As a result, we’ve tweaked our site today so that business reviews, lost-and-found postings and missed connections all click through directly to the relevant Craigslist or Yelp page, without having to go through our own “detail” page, which was more of a hindrance than a help.

We’ve considered making the same change for news articles and city press releases but decided against it for now, because there’s a lot of value in the fact that we’re creating an archive of location-specific news reports in Chicago, New York and San Francisco.

Please keep the feedback coming!
