It make perfect sense and sometimes, I think it’s the common sense reminders that we need. I am getting ready to create a series of blog posts about fashion boutiques in certain areas and although my readers may be from different areas, the post definitely needs to appeal to the folks in that given market.

Very cute article, I love the sound effects especially when the daily quota of coffee has been reached, and yes it gets the message across.

I wish I knew how to create the cartoon that was used here. It would be fun to replicate something like it on our blog.

Beyond that, it was useful information. I need to get back into writting articles – so much to do – so little time.

The production methods we use are fairly simple and could be duplicated by even an average video production company. Check out your local companies – you may find somebody willing to create a video like this at a reasonable cost.

Of course, it would never be Gary… ;-)

Loved this video. I’ve just been through the same thing. I only got rejected once but I knew straight away from the feedback given where I’d gone wrong. My headline didn’t match the content – doh!

I did a Gary and went off and re-wrote it and… bingo :)

Thanks to all at EzineArticles for putting together such a great resource.

I wish to broden or in other word fatten, my writting exposures. How, by participating in such type of activities. This is good rather best, but requires time to go back into reading and writing of issues that serves most in the short and long run.

But most have less time…I wish your best message.

That was a great “video”. You guys really know how to make us listen. Down with normal videos and up with more Gary!

We understand that not everybody has the connection speed necessary to view these videos. That’s why we will either recap with bullet points in the blog post itself, or follow up with a PDF version for more complex videos.

There were literally (2) points to this video:

  1. Make sure your content is specific to the particular locale
  2. Provide the reader with valuable information

Another alternative is to download one of the other video versions overnight and view it in the morning.

Great information video. It makes understanding the rules a lot easier. Above all saves time and suprises!

The key words: Understand, localized,articles

These three key words are fused together to send their messages. The article prepared by someone should be understandable to all who reads it. So, it should go down i.e,localized for most, to give sense.

Thanks to Ezinearticle!

This was great info…It is nice to see a video with good fun and understanding.

Great tips! I have found that when you write articles on a specific niche e.g. ‘How can senior executives reduce their stress levels and save their marriage’ it captures the attention of those who have these current life challenges.

Hi. I am new to blogging and writing for the internet audience. My site’s sub-title says “thoughts on things, events and people encountered on any given day.” I realize now that it is too broad. The chance to have a following would be nil if I continue to write on random things. A localized niche is a good direction in writing. Thanks for the tips.

Valuable video guys. Often it’s just that little thing we do wrong that throws off our whole strategy.

Noticing the other topics in Gary’s adventures, I’m keen to watch those too!

Great cartoon! Good information that we can use. Just following the sugesstions from EzineArticles does pay off in the end.

A great guide with information that can also be used for non local niches such as products, websites, sales training organisations.

It’s made me think about a whole new way to write many articles.

this was an informative post and an issue I’ve been trying to get around my head for so long – till Scott from EzineArticles pointed me to your blog. Thanks for presenting these hits and misses for location spec. articles in such an enjoyable format!

Thanks Gary for the informative video. I have unsuccesfully tried to write content for local search for many months but now I understand what I was missing and why my articles were being rejected.
