Bright Ideas to Promote your websiteMake Your Web Pages Easier to Read

Make Your Web Pages Easier to Read Computer screens are hard on the eyes, and their limited size forces users to scroll.  This makes reading online harder, slower and more uncomfortable than reading on print.  Following are a few simple tips that you can follow to make the experience of reading online easier to your visitors:

  • Write less:  Try to use at least 50% of the words you would use in print.  Once you finish writing, go back and try to further reduce your word count.

  • Use plenty of contrast: black type on white background works best, followed by white text on black background.

  • Use headlines to break the discussion into several paragraphs.  Breaking the discussion into small, manageable chunks, each dealing with a sub-topic of your discussion, makes things much easier for readers.

  • Online users don’t read, they scan.  Use elements that facilitate scannability:  bolding key words and phrases, and using bullet points are two examples of this technique.

  • Don't make your lines of text too long.  If lines of text run from one side of the screen to the other they will be very hard to read.

  • Try to convey one idea per paragraph, instead of bundling them in long, cumbersome paragraphs. 

  • Use hyperlinks to present complementary information instead of trying to include everything in the body of your article.  For example, if you are writing a piece about “search engine submission techniques”, you may touch the subject of  “keyword optimization” at one given point.  If you want to explain what “keyword optimization” means, hyperlink the words to another page where readers can find more about that subject.

  • Try to limit your discussion to one short page, instead of breaking your article into several pages.   Most people won't read through a long article broken into two, three or more pages.  If you have to write a long article, provide a printer-friendly page so that your readers can print the article and read it off-line.

  • Try not to use small fixed font sizes.  When possible, don't specify a font size at all, so that the default browser size (12pt.) will becomes active.   However, if you want to specify the font size, do it in percentage terms.   That way, your users will be able to select their preferred default settings, our use their browser's Text Size menu options to adjust the font size.  If you use fixed font sizes (points), they will not be able to do this.  If you absolutely want to use fixed font sizes because they better preserve the intended layout of your pages, use sizes of 10pt. or higher.

  • Use font types that are specifically designed for reading on the web, like Verdana or Georgia.bd14582_.gif (185 bytes)
