    I wonder how much this has to do with good color use and design principles like balance and focal point. Because that's about all you can see in that short of a time.

    So in my opinion it's a valid study but even if the site looks like a plie of manure and the content is what the user is looking for, they'll still hang around. A study like this cannot proove anything about content. and a website is a mix of many different contributing factors

    I can agree to that as I'll hang around if it provides me with the content I am looking for, couldnt care about the how the site looks. What drives me away and keeps me away is pop-ups, I hate them :mad:

    I think if a site looks decent, you do wanna stay.

    However, I really can't stand sites that look like crap and please please I hate animated gifs especially annoying ones that reapeat over and over again.

    When I site looks ugly, I sometime question the source of information.

    Well there is that too but I think it all depends on the topic of information being provided, well for me to question its source - I find this with SEO sites that have bad designs :rolleyes:

    Here is the link to the original article at Nature:

    http://www.nature.com/news/2006/060109/full/060109-13.html

    I have found that I definitely respond quickly to websites. If I am just browsing, I can be driven away quickly. I have always put it down to uninteresting content, but this suggests my gut reaction is playing a bigger role than my logical appraisal.

    It cannot hurt to ask for immediate reaction to a design . . . instead of a reasoned one.

    Sad to sasy, but my existing sites would have benefitted from a quicker review
