Sorry, this really isn’t a misconfigured page or a hidden page with goodies, it’s actually a research project. I’m tracking how many people click the link.
I’d appreciate if you’d leave me a comment below explaining one or more of the following:
- WHY you clicked this link–what did you expect to find?
- Did you click the link from the top banner of the blog or the sidebar? (Hardly anyone answers this one)
- Did you consider that the link might be malicious? If so, why did you still click it? What kind of justification, if any, went through your mind?
- Did you feel cheated when you found no cheese? Are you now more or less likely to click links like this in similar situations?
Thanks for participating!
If you’re adventuresome, here’s another link to click.
Here’s a link for ITauditSecurity members only.
People Who Found This Page
Did you know you’re in an elite group? As of 12/10/14, only 1.7% of people who come to this site have clicked the HIDDEN link to come to this page.
That surprises me. I would have expected at least 5%, but I guess since most people find this site through Google, they just look at the post that brought them to the site and then leave without looking around much. Or is it because people are not as curious as I thought they are? They certainly can’t be too afraid to click the HIDDEN link.
Less than 60 people have clicked the OTHER links directly above the People Who… heading above. I guess they only trust me so much, which is good.
Or perhaps, as Natascha noted below, readers of an IT security & audit site are more cautious. Maybe so, but I think the Google factor has more to do with it. Agree or Disagree?
