Using the same php script that I have been using for the lost series, this morning I changed up the intro page on my website. The php script was placed in the folder that contains every single map, detail, and zoom-in on my website (as well as some random maps I forgot that I had placed in the folder!), so each time a visitor comes to my website’s splash page they are greeted randomly by one of 1,423 (and counting) images.
See for yourself: https://nikolasschiller.com (hit reload to switch it up!)
I’ve changed it up because I found a lot of people visited the old splash page, but never clicked on the image to enter the website. This modification poses a question to the viewer “You’ve found my website, but can you find the image below?” which is a friendly way of saying, “Look around!”
Continuing on the observations I made before, one thing I have noticed is that people very rarely explore my website. They check the front page, but thats about it. Maybe this new intro page might foster some more exploration.
