The answer is quite simple: Not on your web site.

Unless you have an amazing web site or you’re a billionaire, it is very unlikely that people spend much time on your site. Sorry, but people are spending their time other places.

What this means is that their experience is shaped by other web sites. How does your web site compare? Are you making the same design decisions? How about the same design mistakes? You’re just a tiny little grain of sand…

So, where do people spend time online these days. Here’s the answer (top 6):

  • MySpace
  • Yahoo
  • MSN
  • eBay
  • Google
  • AOL

If you want to understand how people think about the internet, you should understand these web sites. You don’t need to master these web sites, but you need to know something about them. This will help you understand the minds of your customers.

As an internet marketer, this is critical advice. Dig into these sites and figure out how people interact with each other. Find out their wants, needs, and desires. Determine what drives them and how you can help them along the way.
