Now you can add your splash page to your favorite social site/blog easier than ever.
Recently added the Gigya script to the site to make it easier for you to add to
social sites or blogs.
I just added it and did a test run for Blogger and noticed that there is still some
work needed to make it look correct. This could be something to do with the
way Blogger post are. Simply editing the post and deleting everything above
the table tag helps.
More fine tuning may be required to make it fit the context of your blog.
A nice feature that may help. I would like to know if you want it to stay
or not. Leave your comments.

This is a post in response to Tim Linden’s latest contest for
Video Splash Pages where he is giving away a Flip
Mino Video Camcorder.
Tim posted about Splash Page Heatmap Testing on his blog.
I find this to be something of interest to know about and it
is one of my favorite posts that Tim has posted.
The basics is that a heatmap tells where people click on
your page. This can be a useful thing to know as Tim
discribe in his post.
Supersurf Splash page Heatmap test
As you can see with Tim’s testing most people are cliking in the top right corner. He found out that noone has clicked on the close button. My thoughts on this is maybe because they clicked to continue to the new site in the traffic exchange that the viewed the page in.
I find myself clicking the stop button if it is late and I didn’t mute the speaker and my daughter is a sleep. That
is about the only time I do, but there are some other occassions too.
Looks like there would be more testing to do than just
heatmap testing as Tim isn’t sure how many of the
viewers that clicked on the AKH link has joined or not.
Until Tim’s post I didn’t know about heatmap testing.
So I had to do some more investigation in this type of
testing. I found some sites that offer software for this
testing. Most of the sites require the purchase of the
I haven’t used this type of testing yet but after reading
the post I did look into it and found a website where
I downloaded software so I could give this a try.
If I find it useful I may include this some how in with
Thanks for the information Tim.
