Here's Why Nobody Reads Your Content
and an intriguing....solution?

+Dan Petrovic of +DEJAN talks about the wall of text problem. Our content needs enough text to make its case, be relevant and useful, and for search engines to get a good semantic sense of what it's about and what it should rank for.

But study after study shows that most visitors don't read all the way through longer articles.

Dan proposes a halfway solution: give readers the quick sound bites they crave, and hide the details behind an expandable "hypotext" link (which he demonstrates on the linked page). 

Be sure to expand the last hypolink in the "Thought Leaders" section to see some of the pushback from other content experts such as +John Mueller and +AJ Kohn. Some of them think the solution isn't hiding text but rather learning to write for the web, a still largely-undeveloped skill set.
