I am working on a web interface and I want to emphasize a portion of it and make it attractive for people to click on it, which will show additional content (with a 3d css flip animation).
The first version we had is a simple link text with an icon (not too attractive and maybe too general).
The second version is emphasizing the content (it will be a thermometer-shaped level indicator), but I'm not sure yet if the users will click on it. Before doing actual testing I thought about asking it here, so I can tweak it a bit if needed.
Would you click on the new icon?
Is there something I could do in order to improve the clicking ratio of the icon?
Edit: I've redone the button so it's either with the link and shown as a simple icon, or as a more emphasized button. New screenshot:
Which one would you pick?
