    I always do that because it keeps it more organized in my opinion.

    I would say you need to implement the 'Read more' button because it is considered a call to action. It is a prove that your readers really care and want to know more about the subject. I would love to hear, though, about the contrary point of view from people who don't prefer to add it.

    Add new button will allow the viewers to read more about the contents. You should add it.

    YES! I have implemented this on all my niche websites and I have found that everyone likes it. People actually commented about it when I added this feature. ;)

    Definitely YES. The "Read more" button will bring your site more views. Plus you don't reveal all your content immediately on just one page.

    Whats your purpose? If you have articles on your homepage, then perhaps you would need to have excerpts followed by read more, which is the norm?

    I have found very interesting article that was very helpful for me. www(dot)smashingmagazine(dot)com/2009/07/28/designing-read-more-and-continue-reading-links/

    "Why "Read more" links are so important. They are important for several reasons, most importantly because they allow designers to compress content on the home page. By compressing content, you fit more content in less space. This means that readers can scan headlines more quickly and that you can fit more information above the fold.
    Also, "Read more" links allow website administrators to more easily track the most popular content. Designers who put entire articles on the home page may make it difficult for website administrators to track the most popular articles and understand what users want to see.
    The third and probably most practical reason for having "Read more" links on a website is money. Websites that monetize traffic understand that the more their readers click on links, the more likely they will look at and click on advertisements. "Read more" links can double or even triple the number of page views a website receives, making it more attractive to advertisers."

    I hope that will help you.
