What are these Jump Breaks .

When someone open your home page they can see lots of posts with some information ( part before Jump break ). So you can atleast show 5 posts without making the page too much longer. visitor doesn’t have to scroll down to see the next post. when he see a interesting post he will click on the post title or Read more button. then it will open a new page. that means another page view. that’s good for your blog traffic and adsense. new page views means more impressions to your account.
