Hello everyone.

I am trying to use those nifty "read more" links on my blog. My goal is to leave just a small amount of content to catch the reader's attention and interest them enough to click "read more" - I also think this method will increase the amount of posts I can fit on the first page. However, isn't reducing the amount of content on the first page a bad thing?

When I say reducing the amount of content, I mean making less content visible because of the use of the "read more" links. So for SEO, is it a better option to not use "read more" or does it not really have any affect?

Advice is appreciated. Thanks!
