Chunking your content is good strategy anytime, but it's especially important when you're writing for the web. Research has shown that reading online is much easier when information is presented in small, digestible chunks. Information Mapping's Chunking principle is simple and effective. It's too bad so many writers ignore it and create screen after screen of dense, featureless "walls of words." They're building barriers that discourage visitors to their sites. Applying the Chunking principle helps you work with the way your readers' minds work. It's an important step towards developing successful web content.

THIS IS THE FIRST PRINCIPLE OF THE INFORMATION MAPPING® METHOD: THE CHUNKING PRINCIPLE It tells us to group information into small, manageable units. • Use 7 plus or minus 2 items per chunk. • For complex information, limit chunks to 5 plus or minus 2 items. • The Chunking principle is especially important when you write for the web. Here’s a link to the time test that shows you how the Information Mapping® Method makes it much quicker and easier to find the information you need.
