Leslie, did you see Jeffrey Graham's article on ClickZ
last week? He wrote up a case study of how Lycos
re-designed their site *and tested it* specifically
with the advertiser in mind.


  Rory O' Flynn, senior sales information manager at
  Lycos, recently told me how his company redesigned
  its site with the objective of increasing user
  satisfaction and making advertising more effective on
  its network.
