I wrote parts of this page: http://bit.ly/1cyKgcZ

The left hand navigation and the right hand navigation besides where it says "placepot" I wrote a basic set of ASP.NET web controls.

Guess which out of the two has more clicks?

It isn't the left hand side (which common sense and web design trends would dictate to be correct) ...

It is that nasty right hand side navigation (which is below the fold) that was demanded by other people in the business and we thought it would be never be used and has a few bugs because the XML feed that drives them has changed.

My manager and I were stunned.
