– How many messages did you get from each of the sliders on the websites above? Do you know what the core proposition of each business was?

So, why are sliders bad for your website?

  • Visitors don’t use them
  • They slow down your site, which is bad for SEO
  • They force users to scroll to find the point of your website
  • Moving objects are too hard to focus on
  • They ignore a user’s need for control and self-paced reading
  • They lessen the importance of what really matters
  • They give users too many options, which makes it harder to make a choice
  • They lower conversion rates
