In this Quick Tip, I will be answering a question from the President of the Fat Disorders Research Society about “Read More” tags. – You know, when you are reading a page of information and each article has a little link at the bottom that says Read More….

This “Read More” tactic is used on websites all over the world and there are some very good reasons:
