It's time to face the music!

Certain websites may benefit from having music or other audio clips, but proceed with caution! Music that automatically plays upon entering a site can be very off-putting to your visitors. This can have them leaving your site before they even have had a chance to go through it.

Remember that people might be browsing the internet from a place where sound is unwelcome (an office, library etc) or they might have their own music playing and yours will only interfere.

We suggest adding a music widget that allows your visitors the control needed to turn on and off your music. Yola's MP3 player is a great solution! Please see these instructions: Adding Yola's MP3 Player

Your 100% right!!! People that may be listening to music might be browsing and then click on to your website and then there music gets interrupted. Also, someone might have there speakers up loud and they don't know it and then all of the sudden hear some very loud music and it will make them exit out of the website right away. Great idea Sanja!

Music on entering a website Yuk, the same goes for flash websites I reckon. Drives people cannot concentrate on the content with your eyeballs changing sockets and eardrums hammering with some of them.
All a big No No in my book.
