Welcome to the Readable.io Blog!

Readability-Score.com was first launched in 2011, as a home for a pet project of Dave Child, an enthusiastic web developer and budding entrepreneur. 

Initially a simple text analysis tool, the core functionality has remained free ever since the site was first launched, and since then a whole suite of useful readability tools has been added, including several new readability scoring algorithms, a readability API, and various automated alerts to monitor your website readability and keyword density.

In early 2017, the site moved to its new permanent home - Readable.io!

This blog is an opportunity to talk about language - to explore what makes text readable, to share tips and tricks for great writing, and to dig up the occasional curiosity from the depths of the dictionary.
