Don't you just hate those websites with information spread across several pages?

    It's fucking annoying when you're trying to find something or you're doing some research or even just reading some random crap and you have to wait for the next page to load because of these stupid idiots spreading articles across pages. I've got a fast connection so that isn't the problem, it's the reading a few words and having to click to get to the next page.

    I see this more and more and I appreciate it helps with bounce rates but ffs at least give the option to load the full article.

    Most of the time I don't even bother with such sites and just go straight back to Google.

    The problem is there are more and more of them around, they're usually crap anyway but so frustrating.

    That is a good way to increase your visit counter and site owners love to do that.

    It's morons who want to lower their bounce rate. It's the same people who put an autoplaying youtube video on the page at full volume, so you are forced to actually click on the page.

    What's another thing? It's hard to find the link to reach to the next page, since it's hidden with all those 'iLivid' ads!

    I agree 100% buddy! Just take a look at most authority sites and you will see their all starting to
    do this and its so annoying. Between the horrible pop up ads that never load to the article tables
    that skip a page or wont move on to the next page....gah hate it man.

    Don't get me started on mobiles. I've recently came across a site, well this was a while ago now, where over half the screen was covered in an AdSense ad that you could not hide. There was a button to report it but it didn't do anything to remove it. It made reading the information impossible due to the way the website was designed. You could only read 2 lines at a time... This was on a SGS4 screen which is 5.0 or so inches large...

    What I hate are those sites that now turn articles into slide shows, where each slide is just a couple sentences and there's like 30 slides. I just want to read the article, ffs.
