I'm writing a presentation on general Web design and want to talk about
home pages. One topic is whether people enter the site or leave when they
see the home page.

Someone might enter because the site clearly right, or at least possibly
right. She might leave instead because it's actually not what she needed,
or because it's too confusing to spend the time to figure out if it's

Do you have favorite terms for any of these situations? I think of leaving
the site upon seeing the home page as "bouncing" off of the site, and I
like "entering" for the opposite.

Discuss with the group, or send answers to me for summary.

thanks                          -- hs
