The Guardian is now revealing a “Deeply Read” list, statistics on which Guardian articles readers spend the most time with. (This concept is widely known in the industry as “dwell time.”) Says The Guardian: “[We] created a metric that looks at the ‘attention time’ from readers compared with the length of the piece.” Translated: articles that score well can be considered top performers because readers probably read slowly and carefully and got to the end.
