SEO tips (not tricks)

Here are a few tips about the way people read website pages:

1. People avoid reading large blocks of text. Also, they tend to read the first and last paragraphs of an article. I learned that as a newspaper reporter.

2. Usually a reader's eye starts in the upper left corner but the eyes do not necessarily go straight down from there.

3. Navigation links work better near the top of the page rather than on the left side.

4. Check out these fascinating eyetracking sessions.
