So share here your view on reasons why visitors leaves a page quickly...
Steve seemed to have nailed this one. Another thing that tends to bother me is the flash spokesperson some sites have. Although most give the option to pause or close the flash object, it still becomes annoying when they pop up on every new page you browse on the site.

My personal hate and turn off is music that plays that you cannot turn off. It is so easy to put an 'off' switch that there is really no excuse for bombarding your visitors with your own horrible musical tastes!
LOL, I agree with the musical taste things. Just because you like Britney Spears doesn't mean I also like her. Well, you can turn off the music but it will still be loading, right? So it will still hurt if you have connection with limited bandwidth.
One thing not mentioned is lack of content. Usually I land on a page when looking for "X". I'm quickly gone if I can't find the information for "X" or worse, I'm presented with information for "Y" instead and told how much better it is than "X".
