Keep It Simple When Writing For The Web
Last Update: May 02, 2017
Keep it short - most people tend to skim content when reading online. Use lots of headings and bulleted lists to make it easier for people to hit the high points. Keep it simple - remember that you're not writing for your high school English teacher! It's best to write at a sixth to eighth grade reading level so it's easy to understand. Here's a great tool you can use to check what grade level you're writing at: http://writingtester.com/ I tried it on this post, and found out I was writing at a sixth grade reading level, with a readabiity score of 61. The higher the readability score, the better. Give it a try!
