User Interaction vs. Length of Visit

This is more obvious than it is profound, but I decided to post it merely by relevance. Several weeks ago, I debuted the Crappy Graphs user submission tool. Since then, the tool has been used to post hundreds of graphs. These user submitted graphs have since attributed to about 100,000 views on the site.

When you browse user submitted graphs, you can feel that they were drawn by different people. This factor helps lower the barrier to interaction. The effect is just like displaying 20 comments after a blog post. New visitors can see all these voices and feel more of an urge to chime in.

With Crappy Graphs, visitors feel this effect and click around. They submit. All in all, this site is seeing a significant increase in visit length and page views per visit.

Note: Today’s crappy graph was drawn using the user submission tool!

    It is simply incredibly open-handed of people like you to present freely
    precisely what a lot of people would’ve distributed as an e-book
    to generate some money for their own end, and in particular seeing that you might
    well have done it if you decided. These techniques as well served like a fantastic way to fully grasp many people have a
    similar eagerness just as my very own to learn significantly more in
    terms of this matter. I am sure there are lots of more pleasant occasions in the future for people who view
    your blog post.

    This is simply pretty open-handed of you to present without restraint all
    that a number of us could have sold as an electronic book to end up making some money for themselves, primarily now that you might well have tried it if you considered necessary.
    Those thoughts as well worked as the fantastic way to be sure that most people
    have the same keenness just like my personal own
    to understand whole lot more with reference to this condition.
    I believe there are a lot more pleasant situations up
    front for people who view your website.
