comment Does anyone have any test data on 'Load-more-button' infite scroll Vs 'Auto-load' infinite scroll?
That's a great little bit of justification for 1 page over pagination, Thanks for finding that. I find it strange that they know that users prefer 1 page but the search results are still paginated (must be something to do with Ads/pageloads etc, we also have that commercial pressure to reload ads as much as possible). It seems Google still think there is a limit to auto-load infinite scroll though. 10 Pages in they present the user with a load more button. I'd love to be able to find out what they based that on (my gut feeling is its down to 'load')

Thanks Marcos, some really interesting points. I think the load more will win out on this occasion. We have a portfolio of over 40 media sites, 1 global footer and corporate pressures to cross promote. If the board or team ask me to justify infinite scroll I will definitely use the data we get from load-more clicks (great thinking). I wonder if psychologically users need a break from constant loading though, a moment to pause and breath. That second or so where the mental load is less? When i'm using apps with load more I seem to enjoy the session more than if the end is not in sight.

Thanks Benny, I guess what i am looking for is any A/B test to see which seems to be more successful as a device. Dwell time, bounce rate etc. There is a lot of 'opinion' in the other post, which is okay and does support my original UX thinking, but I'd always look to back my opinion up with some sort of test data.
