No, they read the text, although many read it quickly, others took awhile (maybe they're slow readers, or maybe they were trying to take in all of the limited information). There were a couple of visitors who quickly scrolled up and down the page, then left.
Not picking on this comment or the poster, but seems most appropriate for my remark that if one is in a competitive niche and is offering nothing REALLY NEW (similar re-hash regarding red widgets) as regards other sites, that back (your lost buck) button is highly exercised.
What engagements can be made in page display, content, or presentation to get the visitor to NOT click away? That's the burning question for every site out there... and the one that needs to be addressed. And how does any of the above factor into Panda?
