Can't get clearer than that
Quaid, with a greatest of respect, I must disagree.
You're looking at the RG website with "print" eyes.
Here's what you
And here's what MANY long term web users
NOTE- I do not have any "ad block" software.
I've put those boxes there to SIMULATE what I see.
I automatically ignore ads on websites. Many web users do.
It's not even conscious.
AND - I'm not
anti-advertising. In fact, I write ads for a living
In the case of the 2 registration boxes... I seriously
have to search around,
and make my eyes look at every part of the page - before I see them.
So - here is my suggestion to you:
It's much less "print visible" than your current ads,
but much.. much more "web user" visible.
Because - it's where you'd expect
a "register" link to be.
If you made this design change, I bet your registrations will go UP.
