Fewer Words is Better – Blogging

Listening to the WebbAlert Video Podcast last week I learned that people that read less news papers, are actually reading less on the internet too.

The following study estimates that readers only read 18-28% of the text on a webpage:

 A different study says that once committed, a reader will read an average of 77% of the words based on eyetracking:  People like graphs and pictures and figures and stuff.

Basically, readers are choosy, really choosy with what they read, but if they commit to a subject, they will read most of it.

Expect every word my blog to be scintillating from now on.
