JuicyStudio measures the readability of your site. They are using reading level algorithms like Gunning Fog, Flesch Reading Ease, and Flesch-Kincaid to determine how readable the content of a site is.
It is based on mathematical formulas, so it should be considered how accurate it is applied to writing style – they favour short words in short sentences.
Still it can be a useful thing to determine:
- Gunning-Fox index – roughly how many years of schooling it would take someone to understand the content.
- Flesch Reading Ease – it is measured on a 100-point scale. The higher the number, the easier it is to understand the document.
- Flesch-Kincaid grade level – it is a rough measure of how many years of schooling it would take someone to understand the content.
