(Asked whether we should remove the state motto heading from this state page because it makes the title redundant and seems to lack genealogical value.)

I wonder whether it would be a good idea to remove the abovementioned heading from this page. The page already has a title "Arkansas" above. This heading makes the page feel like a tourism site. I think that'll contribute to the page's bounce rate -- the number of users who come to the page, realize it's not what they want, and bounce off to another site. A state's motto "The Volunteer State," etc. doesn't seem to lend genealogical value, so I wonder if we should nix these redundant "titles" on state pages to free up the initial screen for genealogically valuable information that is otherwise pushed further down on the page?

Remove "Welcome to Arkansas, the Natural State" heading?[edit source]

I wonder whether it would be a good idea to remove the abovementioned heading from this page. The page already has a title "Arkansas" above. This heading makes the page feel like a tourism site. I think that'll contribute to the page's bounce rate -- the number of users who come to the page, realize it's not what they want, and bounce off to another site. A state's motto such as "The Volunteer State" or others don't seem to lend genealogical value, so I wonder if we should nix these redundant "titles" on state pages to free up the initial screen for genealogically valuable information that is otherwise pushed further down on the page?
