Blah-Blah Text: Keep, Cut, or Kill?

Cherry-pick from Jakob Nielsen’s Alertbox for October 1 on Blah-Blah Text: Keep, Cut, or Kill?.

Summary:

Introductory text on Web pages is usually too long, so users skip it. But short intros can increase usability by explaining the remaining content’s purpose.

Enjoy being inspired by Nielsen’s writing for the web.
