    That’s great Jen, one constructive suggestion though. I tweeted it @comscore but didn’t get a response. Since the re-design went live I’ve found myself clicking the “view plans & pricing” button more often than the “go” button. I think the two might be too close to the search field/confusingly similar. Overall though very positive experience on the new UI.

    Oh no! It would be helpful to see a screen shot of how your page is showing up, because maybe there is a zooming issue. If you want you can certainly send that over to and they’d be happy to check it out. Otherwise, happy to hear that the overall layout works better for you. P.s. tweeting @comscore doesn’t reach us! Try @compete next time 🙂
