Just my thoughts

What's on your logout page?

Closed Loop Marketing posts a very well thought out article regarding the page a Web site presents when a user logs out.

Sandra Niehaus writes:

Let’s put ourselves in the shoes of a site visitor for a moment. … Now she’s done using the site, and logs out.

And sees, however briefly, the logout thank you page. Here is a transition state, a zone where the visitor’s attention is not yet focused on a new task. Here’s your opportunity. What will you say?

In addition to a critic of some excellent examples, Ms. Niehaus also creates a nice table of optimization guidelines. Definitely a good read. I am also interested in reading the book she references:
