UX Myths that Hurt SEO – Whiteboard Friday


In today’s Whiteboard Friday, Rand talks about some negative UX myths that we should probably ignore.



  1. Dang, this was great info. Confirms a lot of the thoughts I've had about the same myths, especially good to hear about the "above the fold" myth. Thanks for another great whiteboard Friday Rand!

  2. With regards to the social sharing buttons… Giving people way too many options can be very distracting. It's a known fact that when people feel even the slightest bit of confusion or "hassle" when trying to do something, they'll end-up procrastinating or better yet, not do anything about it at all. That said, I find that giving them 1 – 3 options brings in more conversion. Although there are definitely some special cases, this strategy seems to be working perfectly for those people who use it.

What say you?
