PART 4 - WRITING THE ARTICLE
WRITING THE ARTICLE
Now it’s finally time to write your article. First, you should write it out in Microsoft Word or another word processing program before publishing it on a website. It will be easier to proofread and edit it this way. Plus, it allows for you to save a copy of your article on your computer for backup.
A good average article length is between 500-1000 words. Don’t make it too long or people will lose interest, but don’t make it too short either. You can always go back and edit articles you’ve published once you find the “sweet spot” when it comes to article length.
Try and be as grammatically correct as possible too. It looks a little sloppy to readers when they see a whole lot of typos and other errors, but it’s not a requirement.
After you write your article out in Word, or whatever program you’re using. Take a break, then come back and proofread it. Make any changes, then start copying and pasting it onto the website.
WRITING THE ARTICLE (CONT'D)
As you are copying your article onto the website, look for pictures or
Youtube videos that are related to your article and post them inside of
it. This makes for a better reading experience, and helps break up the
mountains of text in most articles.
If you can find any links to other websites that are related, put those in the article as well. You want your article to be the go-to resource for whatever it is you are talking about. All of this is an effort to encourage people to keep reading your articles.
But never, EVER ask people to click on the ads in your article!
You can get banned from websites doing this, because it’s encouraging click fraud. Just write the best article that you can, and people will start clicking on their own.
