  • This is a great infographic!! It just goes to show how aesthetics are going to really impact things like web conversion and social engagement! I know my habits tend to revolve around the sites and interactions that involve really large, yet simple images. Internet marketers seem to just now be learning about these things with eCommerce sites like Fab.com really playing up large singular images for their navigation. I think it will even go as far as having design be a ranking factor for Google in the future, would certainly take out a lot of web spam! Great share Jon! Now i gotta get more images on my own blog, http://www.localsoccernews.com

  • Also just took me an extra minute to find the tweet button! (I know my own dumb fault, but was looking for it in the share bar! Just a consideration…)

    • Yeah, that’s definitely an experiment in the making!  I like having it where it is now, but I think it could be easy to miss and confusing with the share bar.  Maybe I’ll just throw it in both spots and live with some redundancy!  Thanks for the feedback and the comment below 🙂
