Traffic is always important for every website, and we all take many steps to increase traffic for our site. In research, it is seen that most of the people try to ignore the big post and procedures. And no person reads the whole procedure unless he needed. Big posts make users boring and make it difficult for them to find the exact result he has been searching for. 

But everything is not possible to keep small. Well, there’s a way, you can add the “Read More” button to your posts and pages. This button hides the big paragraph and doesn’t open until the visitor wants to.
