Readability is the ease with which text can be read and understood. Easy-reading text improves comprehension, retention, and enjoyment.
Research has shown that businesses and organizations waste millions of dollars by not creating texts that are easy for the average reader to read.
Readability is a ranking factor for Google
Google determines the reading level of your web pages and uses it in the ranking algorithm:
“Since Penguin 2.1 was launched in October 2013, MathSight has been analysing traffic data and has recently been able to confirm – to a 99.9% confidence level – that the algorithm is using the Flesch Kincaid and Dale Chall readability related tests as part of a combination of metrics to evaluate both linking and onsite content.”
