Large storms revealed the trees, branches, and pine cones that are about 10,000 years old. They had been buried under 16 meters of sand all this time.
Hat tip to Phil.
- Only 1% of the people actually click on a slide, which almost always was the first slide;
- People simply ignore your slider, because it triggers banner blindness;
- They slow down your site, negatively impacting your SEO and conversion rate(!!);
- They don’t always work well on mobile devices,
- They push your content down, which Google recently mentioned yet again is not smart;
- It dilutes your message, because suddenly there are multiple messages on your homepage.
Convinced yet? Let’s abandon the notion of using slideshows/sliders/carousels on websites and make the web a nicer place to browse!
