Understanding data from ClickDensity/CrazyEgg to help on redesign

I have a doubt about those Click Tracking apps and I would like to know your
experiences about that

I need to create a method, a logic to understand those numbers/graphics from
ClickDensity and comparing them with WebTrends data or Google Analytics.

Does anyone knows an article or something that could help?

Focus o f List

Hey there peeps,

I had a couple of suggestions from people to try and keep this list focused
on IxD and not let the content go off in all directions. This does not
happen often here b/c of self selection mainly but every so often a topic
like "should I use this color or that color" comes up. While this may have
"DESIGN" relevance it is rare that it has IxD relevance, so I'm putting my
moderator goggles on and will try to guide people in the right direction and
interrupt threads from time to time that just seem like they are too

Re: [IxDA] Why Left Search Buttons Perform Faster Than Right

I come in piece with a twist of humor...

Innovation is key and nowhere have I read in this string anyone frowning on it. Actually just the opposite.

However.... When someone portrays an article as fact, refers to their own site for reference and starts an email off with "Research has shown....", its logical for readers simply ask, what research? Show us, inquiring minds want to know.

And if you have NONE, ZIPPO, ZERO... that by far exceeds tapping on the glass for a response. That's pretty much sticking your hand in the cage...OUCH!

Dual search boxes

My state's web site


has two search boxes, one for the conventional search within the site, and another for their special keywords. For instance, if you enter DMV in the special keywords box, it goes right to Department of Motor Vehicles.

Shouldn't these just be one "Search" box?

Tips on selecting icons for web applications?

Hi there,

I'm looking for any resources or tips on selecting good icons for functions unique to a certain web application. I personally don't design icons myself, and think I could be successful using those already out there for purchase.

If anyone could give insight on a couple of things, that'd be great, too:

1) Should icons on a toolbar always be labeled, or will a user be able to learn them after using the application regularly?

UX Weekly, Take 2

UX Weekly is on its 44th edition, but I've been tinkering with what it's trying to accomplish, and how to accomplish it. 

The newsletter is subscribeable at uxwkly.com, and my thinking for it is available on my blog.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, opinions, critiques, and recommendations.

Just to get you interested:
