Wednesday's Website Tips


Many website owners use flashy splash pages that their visitors must sit through or click through. No matter how professional or catchy these splash pages are, they come with a price. Splash pages are risky business, and this is why you need to think before using a splash page.

Keep in mind that CNN has no splash page. If it were a great idea, you can be sure that they would have one. People go to CNN’s website for information, and that’s what they provide their visitors – information.

We know why some websites have them, but why do so many choose not to have splash pages? While they are used to impress and capture leads, most website visitors simply don’t like them.
