Many of the websites today, use slideshows to dispense information. This is probably a cool way to present any piece of information, as a slideshow looks very slick and attractive. But the real motive behind creating slideshows is that they help generate more number of page views and that subsequently translates into more revenues for webmasters. However, it can be a very frustrating experience for a user as he has to click over and over to extract a single piece of information. Here on this blog, we show you how to successfully remove a slideshow from any website and obtain the available information quickly.

What is a Slideshow?
A slideshow is basically a compilation of text, images or videos. All the paragraphs of a single post or article can be used to turn them into a slideshow. That means you have to click on the next button again and again to read every paragraph of the same article. That can be quite annoying as a user. You wouldn’t want to do that. But that presents an opportunity for a slideshow developer to earn more views. For example, if there are 10 slides of a particular slideshow, and you click 10 times to gather a single piece of information, the developer gets 10 page views. In the absence of a slideshow, he has just 1 page view for a particular post. Removing animations from a slideshow is different than removing the slideshow from a website.
