Readability: Why does the number of words in the Siteimprove platform differ from the number in the Page Report?
By Sean Needham
When words and long sentences are identified for Readability, they are based on what our machine learning algorithm determines as content. (See Readability: How has Siteimprove identified content on my page?)
When looking at Readability issues in a Page Report, you will see results for the entire page content, and not only what our algorithm determined as content.
Therefore, depending on how well our algorithm performs on your pages, there might be a discrepancy between the numbers we show in the platform, and what you see in the Page Reports.
