I learned a very simple yet important rule in web management today. To some it might just be a way to conserve the appearance to the page, make it look a little neat. In this world of SEO optimized web pages the basic currency is now your page views.
The use of the extended entry is now being widely promoted. To some this might be called as the "read more" link. What does this do? it gives you the chance to force your user to click through another page. clicking through another page means more chances for you to serve ads. the more chances you get, the higher the chance that particular reader might just click on an ad .. ka-ching.
So kiddies, lesson for the day is , conserve your words, force your readers to want for some more.
