Print your stories on one page. If I have to keep clicking to continue reading, I leave the page and I won't read any further.
AOL lures people into reading a story, only to have to click thru pages and pages to read the entire story. By the time I get 2-3 pages in, I usually quit because this is so time consuming and annoying. If I then see other stories that I may be interested in, I don't even bother, because I know that AOL is going to make me click, click, click.
...... Put the articles on one page.
Yeah, me too!... I really hate that- NEXT- NEXT- NEXT- ROUTINE, Also, should the ad state something like "You'll be shocked to see where Bugs Bunny now lives", you can bet your last silver dollar that "Bugs" will be the very last star featured, about 30 "NEXT" clicks down the road, if ever! Anymore, at the first "NEXT", I back out of that time wasting BS.

I refuse to read anything that goes on for pages and pages. Never! Stop doing that. Everyone hates it, but you don't seem to care.
It's called "click bait." It's designed to make you click on many pages. AOL gets paid more in advertising fees when you click on more pages. The only way to discourage it is to refuse to click on click bait articles.
I totally agree...it's a pain in the butt....I also leave the story after the 3rd page.....

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH Jo.. this is exactly what I wanted to say. AOL, your doing a poor job with this.. GET IT FIXED PLEASE!
I agree. I may want to read the article but if I see it is from a source that does this (most of them) I just continue on without reading. It is to the point with me, I usually don't even use AOL as my home page. Im tired of this clicking to read.
I AGREE... I click on a story and as soon as I see the "Continue Next Page" I Click CLOSE... Must be so They can FORCE More Commercials at us... GOTTA Get More and More Money, ***** the People or Income is Everything...
OMG..I HATE THEM! I dont bother once I recognize thats where its going.

You don't listen AOL, so you lose more readers every day! Goodbye!
All aol wants to do is push ads in your face, If you click on the next page box before you get the pointing finger you will get an ad, as far as aol is concerned their job is done. Well our job is done too. getting rid of aol. If you ever tried that it is a lot of work because of the way it is embedded in your c drive,
Takes forever to load pages of ads to get through a short story, I lose interest. One page story is all I want to read!
I agree. I won't click on stories that aren't on one page as the "next page" button shifts up and down as the page loads ads and many times while trying to hit "next page" it shifts causing me to click on an ad that I didn't want. It's so frustrating that I now won't read these stories no matter how interesting they seem. That leaves very few stories I can read. This sucks!
