Data from analysts Hitwise shows that traffic to the MI5 and Home Office websites rocketed last week, when the official national security alert level went from ‘severe’ to ‘critical’. You’d think something like this would merit special, strong treatment on the sites’ homepages, to help you get where you wanted to go. But don’t expect more than an unobtrusive text link… which, in the case of MI5, even comes ‘below the fold’.
They should have used this. 🙂
