From the page I linked; "When an index is created or rebuilt, the fill-factor value determines the percentage of space on each leaf-level page to be filled with data, reserving the remainder on each page as free space for future growth."

"How do you avoid them? There are strategies for doing this, one such strategy is to use a low fill factor when you create and index, but that will be at the expense of read operations and because you usually have more reads to writes then that’s bad."
