Where do you tend to gravitate when finding someone's website for the first time? (Other than the homepage, of course.) I made this mainly because I just noticed that I always tend to go to "about me" pages first, and I was wondering if that was a tendency shared amongst other people...

I usually beeline to an art page if they have one, but otherwise I generally go to their about. It gives me an idea what they're into, what they're like, and possibly what goals they have for the site.

I don't mind scrolling down to page 14 or whatever of search engine results so I don't usually enter sites from their home page. For personal sites, after reading whatever page I land on, I'll go back to their home page and take a look at that and then find their "about" page.

I just find it fascinating what people are interested in and what they share.

Usually the about page. I guess it's all dependent on what other pages they have, too. If they had a page filled with pictures of oranges, I'd probably go there first.

i visit the about me page first so i can get a feel of the 'voice' that's being spoken through the site, if that makes sense! but after that, i love exploring people's projects and things they're working on.

Checkout the homepage, a bit of an underrated aspect of a site tbh. Then I do one of the options mentioned on the voting poll which depends on context, like maybe I want to check out the history of an artist or find a interesting topic on the blog. It could be anything!

If I'm on the new website that I've never been before it's likely that I discovered it during my search about my hobbies / tutorials so I'd like to see their projects first if I'm interested in the said website.

I think if there's an Art section or some other clearly indicated project then I go there first, About comes second. Shrines also generally take priority, I wanna see what this user loves enough to make a whole shrine to it  :ozwomp:

It varies, but I typically want to learn more about the Webmaster(s) running the site so I'm often drawn to their about page or blog first. Sometimes I take a gander at their art gallery first if it's an art-focused site.

Quite interesting results. I guess I am a bit different from the majority. First thing I enter is either the gallery and ocs, or the links page. I am generally more interested in seeing, and discovering sites and cool links as well as peoples art and creations than most other things.

Interesting vote results! I almost always go for the About page, followed by the art page followed by the links page - all for similar reasons to what others have said above!

I keep a short-term per-page hit counter running and the most clicked tabs on my site tend to be (with the most clicked at the top and with more generic titles)
