How many articles do you actually read from start to finish?
Chances are, like many people who are busy, you scan your way through them instead of reading line by line. Look around and you'll notice most of that scanning is done on mobile phones at the breakfast table, riding the bus or travelling the train.
Design your page layout so it's easy to scan.
Scientific studies have uncovered that people scan online content in an 'F-pattern'. What this means is your reader's eyes move across the top of the screen to read your important headline then straight down the left to view quick info such as bullet points and numbers. This is why many articles include a number in the title for example:
- The 4 essential steps to attract your customers
- 2 simple things you can do to stop letting yourself off the hook
Your reader's eyes continue to scan down then across to read bolded text and subheadings.
You've got seconds to catch your reader's eye.
If your reader finds nothing of interest in seconds they move on to someone elses content. This applies to all your online content including articles and adverts.
And just to demonstrate this here's the article you've just read...
