Site Redesign: Side-Bar Switcheroo
It brought to mind a visual attention study described over at EyeTools Research. They used this eye-heat map to demonstrate that most people who are running ads on the right hand side of their blogs are wasting their time because most people never look there. I wondered upon seeing this wether that's because the right hand side naturally doesn't get attention, or wether people aren't looking at it when there are ads there.
At the same time, the left side doesn't get a whole lot of attention either. So who knows what it means. One way or the other, I think taking my sidebar to the left is a good idea. Any feedback on how it looks now?
