    White Vs. Black

    From your experience, which "color of the website" (background, overall color) do visitors prefer? Of course, I am talking about which color makes them to click more on ads.

    I prefer white as well. I think black could work well with the myspace crowd.

    White, with blue accents.

    Blue is good. What do you think about orange and blue accents?

    A good reason to not use black is that people browsing the web at work would not be happy to have such an obviously non-work related site on their monitor screen.

    But I think black would work well for sites offering say jewelery, fashion, movies, and gaming since it relates to the clothing style of the sophisticated buyers or can offer strong contrast between the shiny things being advertised on the site and the black background.

    It can get boring always using white as the background I think.

    I think you're a Bronco's fan.

    I think blue works because it makes blue links somehow more "clickable."

    Interesting statement, I never thought about it this way. On the other hand, I see a lot of dark/black work related websites too.
