I've designed a website with a blog section. My mates and I fail to come to an agreement.
My opinion : Left
I think it's better to place it on the left according some studies with heat map and according to the left-to-right reading. When you finish a text line, your eye comes back to the line on the left and find the read more link to access to the whole article.
My mates : right
They usually click on the right to access to the whole article. Why ? I don't know.
Probably linked to the fact that I'm left-handed and my mates ares right-handed ?
Another observation is that the position doesn't matter. In this case we have the read more link on the left (float: left) and the comment link on the right (float: right). It would appear that separating the two links isn't a good idea and it would be better to group both being careful to distinguish the most important "call-to-action" with a different graphic style.
What's your opinion about that?
