Redirect only once to specific page

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,
Once people arrive on my website, I would like them to be redirected to a specific page but only once. This means once they visited that page and go back to the main page, I don't want them to be redirected again.
So far I used this code : 
<script>
         setTimeout(function(){
            window.location.href = 'https://(mywebsite)';
         }, 30000);
</script>

But this means, once they visited the page and go back to the Main, they will be redirected again and again...

Any code to add to this?

Thanks

Instead of redirecting users, have you considered showing users a promotional pop-up?

Yes Paul I have tried but for what we need, I can't created a decent pop-up on Squarespace, so I created a Landing page. ( I need not only the email address of the visitor but also their name, phone number and more...)
I would like it to appear after 30 seconds tho.

To make the code run only once you could use a cookie or localStorage.

Instead of a one a done situation you may want to get fancier and have some kind of expiration or other way to reset your flag.

Yes, using cookie sounds great but unfortunately I am not good enough in coding. Newbie here.
Do you suggest any?
Thank you creedon
