How to write for the web
It's been two months since I published this article and as promised I'm sharing the user engagement statistics:

Scrolls: http://goo.gl/TvNhc8 Clicks: http://goo.gl/pqtysf Hovers: http://goo.gl/hdAw6c

Page views: 5,000
Average time on page: 11 minutes
Bounce Rate: 60%
Source: http://goo.gl/SiZd6F

Hypotext plugin installs: 156
Source: https://goo.gl/uSvQpw

What did I learn? My readers like when I write big in-depth articles but end up reading more of it if I show them only a skeletal form of the article and let them choose which parts to expand (hypotext). Heatmaps show that people did use the feature and weren't confused by it. I'm amazed that people spend an average of ~11 minutes on this article. I've never had that sort of success on my blog. Another highlight for me was that the bounce rate on this page was 30% lower than on our average blog post which means that after reading my post people aren't sick of me but many of them are looking for more of my content which is awesome.
Our research shows that only one in five people read web content word for word. Majority scan, skip and only read key items of interest.

Interesting. Providing the option at the beginning of the article removed the devaluation of the hidden content in search? 

If you have any time I would truly appreciate the opportunity to discuss this further!

Ok, I admit it, did some negative SEO attacks on https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ just to raise awareness of geograph.org.uk though sublimnal advertising. It was a risk as there are so many sites Googlebot could of picked... https://www.google.com.au/#q=site:https:%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Fwebmasters%2Ftools%2F+inurl:siteUrl

I wonder if Google treats your clipboard as a signal. I just realised Facebook snoops through it...

Is that in G+ pages or external suff?

data-* attributes are a standard way to extend elements for your own data uses.

Who's from Germany or Romania? Any observations around that date? I've dropped a lot on the 6th, likely due to increase in number of deep results we show up for in Google.

Nothing special here, in Romania. Site: tourism niche.

Well, that comment does mitigate the somewhat sombre tone of the quoted one +John Mueller. :D

Shinji is excellent but not for everyone. Firstly, this is not the type of restaurant where you just turn up to check it out. My recommendation is to peruse their menu and more importantly prices before you make your reservation. The restaurant is tucked away in the corridors of the legendary Raffle's Hotel. It's a bit of a mission to find it. Once seated you get a fully dedicated chef to yourself and everyone is overly courteous. Still, I felt that this is a get in, enjoy your food, pay and get out type of place. Don't expect to make strong connection as you would with an owner of a, say, Greek or Italian restaurant. I tried their top menu item and found it to be a wonderful, flawless experience from preparation to taste. Am I glad I went there? Absolutely. Would I be back? Unlikely. I found that a local sushi/sashimi restaurant provided a close, if not as exclusive food experience for around $80 per person. Shinji was $450.

Pretty good, tropical bar atmosphere with great views. I recommend afternoon and evening hours.

Try their pork sliders and prawn toast. Char siew bun is also quite nice but maybe have only one as it's quite sweet and filling. For vegetarian option I recommend kai lan with mushroom. Great service, clean place with bright, upbeat atmosphere. I'll be back for sure.

Great pies with gluten-free choices too, which is pretty rare.

A great aquarium, even better when when visiting off-peak. Queues and crowds can be quite distracting when trying to enjoy the serene aquarium experience.

Delicious! One of the best sashimi experiences I've ever had. Super fresh seafood. I found service a little stiff and laggy but the food and atmosphere completely made up for it.

Beautiful interior, lovely atmosphere, attentive staff and fun, tasty dishes. Their seven course degustation was delightful.
