Have you thought about how long the average person spends at your website or blog?
We live not only in a fast food culture but also in a fast information consumption culture as well. Attention spans are short. We must engage our audience quickly.
With so many competing sources of information, if we don't answer the questions people are asking quickly or fail to grab their attention, they will soon leave our website or blog.
This infographic by Virtues Media Group examines the attention spans of television, web video, radio and web articles. One surprising statistic: "4 seconds: The time 1/5 of all pageviews in 2012 lasted."
So please make your articles headlines and opening paragraphs very interesting.
