The portion of your web page that the visitor can see without scrolling. It is the first impression your visitor gets and can influence the bounce rate and dwell time.

- landing pages that are used for conversion should have a CTA here
- always show a hint of the content from below the fold so the visitor doesn’t leave by mistake thinking he/she saw everything there was to see
