Taken from the W3Schools tutorial:

function getCookie(c_name){if (document.cookie.length>0)  {  c_start=document.cookie.indexOf(c_name + "=");  if (c_start!=-1)	{ 	c_start=c_start + c_name.length+1; 	c_end=document.cookie.indexOf(";",c_start);	if (c_end==-1) c_end=document.cookie.length;	return unescape(document.cookie.substring(c_start,c_end));	}   }return "";}function setCookie(c_name,value,expiredays){var exdate=new Date();exdate.setDate(exdate.getDate()+expiredays);document.cookie=c_name+ "=" +escape(value)+((expiredays==null) ? "" : ";expires="+exdate.toGMTString());}

Then make your custom function:

function alertOnce() {  visit=getCookie('visit');  if (visit != 1) {	alert("Message");	setCookie('visit',1,365);  }}

And finally, perform the function when the window loads:

window.onload = alertOnce;

All of the previous code must go between script tags in the <head> of the document.
