How to get rid of visitors
Last week we asked readers for tips on how to cut the
traffic on personal web sites. We got quite a few ideas. Here
are some tips contributed by one reader:
- Building a business website? Make visitors complete a
registration form before accessing the actual site. Demand as
many details as possible, including the names of their
parents and their shoe size. Make sure that if one detail is
missing, the visitor will have to fill out the entire form
again; there are sites that allow a visitor to make slight
corrections in the form. You can't afford to allow that.
- Building a personal website? Remember to detail all of
your special hobbies on the site, especially if they include
watching Seinfeld and surfing ICQ. Don't forget to include
as many pictures as possible from your last trip to the north.
Make sure all the pictures are on one page. Don't give
visitors a chance to choose what picture they want to see -
they might miss one - especially if you made a mistake in
entering the size of the pictures and failed to make sure that
they would be of scanning resolution, creating a file of over
at least 200K.
