I get asked this questions a lot, “How do you add a Read More Link in WordPress?”
First, what is a read more link? A read more link is something you can click which shows more information. Sometimes this information is displayed by a drop down and other times you are taken to a new URL.
How do you Add a Read More Link in WordPress to a Post or Page
It is very simple. All you need to do, is login to WordPress and then navigate to the post or page where you will be adding the read more link. Once you are there, you simply click the read more button. The button looks like a sheet of paper that is cut in half.
Once you have clicked the button and added the read more link, you simply save or publish the post. You can then return to the main blog roll page and see your read more link in action!
Please note, adding a read more link can be very important for SEO. By having more content on a URL (and not sitting on the main blog roll page), it helps that URL get indexed and link to more often.
