The visual Content of most modern websites includes text, images and video - you should ensure that each is optimally presented. When dealing with text, you must ensure that your information uses familiar words easily understood by typical users. As a minimum, present all written words with appropriate grammar, correct spelling and proper punctuation.
Most measures of readability try to predict the number of years of education that a person needs to be able to easily read and understand the text. You should match the ‘readability level’ of your text to the reading grade level of most users. Generally, if you use too many long, unfamiliar words, and/or long sentences, your text will be more difficult to read and understand. Most readability formulas use word length and sentence length to predict reading ease. The average grade level for this paragraph is 8.9, with an average of 4.4 characters per word, and an average of 15.3 words per sentence. [see the Readability Score tile] Finally, ensure that your text is optimized (clearly represents your content), uses the best keywords for SEO purposes, and is unique (not plagiarized).
