Article Pagination and Slideshows are Out of Control

Has anyone noticed how websites have been going overboard with article pagination and slideshows over the past couple of years? In an attempt to increase page views, they split what should be a single page into many pages.

Here is one example that I saw today:

Extreme article pagination

Notice how a simple article that is supposed to be about four points takes up nine pages! There isn’t even a link to view the article on one page.

If a website is going to use pagination or “slideshows” to deliver content, there should always be a prominent “view as single page” link.
