EzineArticles Tips and Training Snippets:

  • When re-purposing blog content for articles, tweak the language. Articles that say ‘in this blog’ confuse readers.
  • The article body and title aren’t the only things that need proof-reading. Check the spelling in your links, too.
  • Too many ellipses (…) or dashes (-) in articles distract readers. Use them sparingly and correctly.
  • Eliminate wordiness and use words that are familiar and appropriate. Your article should be easy to read and understand.
  • Paragraphs should be used to chunk your sentences. This allows your article to be visually and logically appealing.
  • Don’t think about the keyword density of your article when writing. It’ll sound more organic if they’re used naturally.

EzineArticles Fun Facts:

  • Fun Fact: 52% of our 3,500+ Facebook Fans are female, but in the first week of March, 81% of interactions were female.
  • Fun Fact: Based on EzineArticles counts, ‘weddings’ are 3x more important than ‘marriage,’ which explains a lot, really. ;-)
  • Fact: Readers feel more confident that info provided in your articles is correct and valuable if the grammar is clear.
  • #HAHD Fun Fact: 92 members submitted 100 or more articles each in February. If they can do it, you can do it!
  • Fact: ‘Evergreen‘ content will draw traffic forever; dated material is obsolete as soon as something new comes along.
  • Fact: Readers have very short attention spans. Make sure they see quality content and value in your article right away.

Motivational Moments:

  • RT: @MariSmith: Wowza!! One of the BEST Facebook Fan Page makeovers I’ve seen!! @EzineArticles
  • If you’re bored writing your content, odds are your readers are too. Spice it up! Research fresh ideas and perspectives.
  • The best way to improve your writing skills is to write! Learn from mistakes. Repeat successes. Practice makes perfect!
  • Perseverance is key. If you stop writing articles, you’ll stop drawing new traffic. Push through and keep on writing!
  • Like any other skill, writing articles takes practice. The only way to practice is to do. So write!
  • Don’t give up! Just write one article and then another and then another. Then do it again. (via @JudyHWright)

Misc. Words of Wisdom:

  • Information overload will make readers click away. If your article is very dense, split it into multiple articles.
  • “If 1 person is interested in the answers you can provide, maybe 100 other people are too.” (via @JudyHWright)
  • When choosing article keywords, appeal to both search engines and human readers. You need both for your article to succeed.
  • Articles that use headings, paragraphs and lists rather than large blocks of text do better at keeping the reader’s attention.
  • Finding the quality/quantity balance is one of the hardest parts of article marketing. Develop a system and keep with it!
  • Your competition is one of your most valuable resources. Watch what they’re doing and learn from their successes.
