    What do you see?

    Michele Walk, who along with Kathleen helped me out on some social media things and who now works for Engage, links to an interesting post at Mashable about eye tracking of Facebook pages performed by EyeTrackShop Inc.

    Here’s the image of what people see on a Facebook page:


    I’m pretty sure I can’t afford their services, so tell me, what do you see and what to you first look at when you visit the Legal Insurrection home page?

    Only one “beef” for me: needing to click thru the “read more” link on every post after the five most recent. Pixels are cheap, the posts could be displayed in full.

    I check your latest post and then check out the video du jour. (Loved the Ronettes week and now the Lovin’ Spoonful. YEAH!) I’m not thrilled with the Alan Grayson ads, but I figure you have no control over those. I keep coming back daily; need I say more?

    First I open up a post’s comments section and scan for entry’s by Cowboy Curtis or LukeHandCool. Those are the posts that always interest me. All else is fluff.

      Haha! Be careful 49erDweet. A man is known by the commenters he reads!

      I’m tickled you’d say that and I always look forward to some good reading when I see your avatar. I would just disagree on “fluff.” I get a kick out of almost all the commenters and I’m impressed by their knowledge and humor.

    My eyes flit over the banner, then to the title of the bloc, then to the FOCUS button and then to the title of the first post, and on down.

    I believe that studies show that people who are used to reading from left to right, top down, look first at the upper left-hand corner and then the left column. On the internet, readers are most comfortable with left-hand navigation bars. Inexplicably, many blog templates put this info on the right.

    In regards to your page, I read the headlines, who the author is and then read the articles. I visit your site about three times per day – very early morning, lunchtime and evenings thus, I generally read all of your articles.

    FYI – I especially enjoy your legal opinions and comments on legal matters and have been impressed by your judicious control over the number of legal articles you publish as well as how you make legalese understandable to someone like myself who tries very hard to avoid any type of contact with all things to do with the profession of esquires. No offense, and I am sure none is taken. 😉
