Less and less users are visiting a website's homepageOnce upon a time, the homepage was a website's top entry point. But more and more users are discovering a website's content via search and social media without ever having to visit the homepage.

The traditional homepage isn't as important as it once was because, as CMS Wire puts it, every page is a homepage to someone.
