On Web Readability & Formatting


Posted by Chris Cardinal Categories: Misc. Tech


It’s not exactly gadgets-related, but I’ve written up a piece with advice for increasing web readability and how to keep people from skimming your carefully crafted content. It’s over on my company’s web development blog and it covers some basic, generally obvious (and a few not-so-obvious) tips to get the most bang for your buck per reader. As you’re almost certainly aware, it’s a pretty significant challenge to hold someone’s attention on the web for any real period of time. Making sure they read the most important chunks of a large brick of text is critical and pretty darn difficult. But there are ways to make the skimming habit work for you and if you publish any content on the web at all, I hope you’ll find my post useful to you.

Thanks for the suggestions mate.Will definitely be useful when needed.

I like the concept of having skimmers, which I do a lot, being able to get the most out of a site. Design of web sites will never be the same, thanks,seriously.
