comment What is the name of someone who does not know how to use a computer or the web?
"Novice User" is the best term. It is important to remember that users are multi-dimensional; they may not be experts on computers, but they are good at other tasks. You have to focus on the person first, then the technology.

comment How do you know when an interface is complete?
@blunders Ha! I guess you are right. I just wanted to stress that user interaction should always be the driving force behind interface design. I suppose I could revise my statement to "a interface is complete when everything works exactly as a user would expect it would."

comment Labeling an advertisement
There is still need for the label, even if they don't pay attention to them. Labeling ads ensures that there is no doubt in the mind of the users. The placement of the label doesn't matter, but it needs to be there just because it's what users expect. In my experience, ads really don't need to be labeled unless they look like actual content that could fool a user (like a fake news article that was just a promotional). Generally, the ad label is put there for the owner to show a distiction from the ads and their own content.

Basically, look at it as this: The user always acts in a way that is logical to them. If they are making mistakes, then there is a disconnect between the her and your product. You have to bridge that gap. Again, watching what she does (or doesn't do) will give you invaluable insight. Also, ask her to "think-aloud" so you can see her thought process.

You see, the proximity you set on the page doesn't really matter if the user isn't getting it. Also, there are pages that break the rule of search bar in the top right.
