EzineArticles Tips and Training Snippets:

  • Ask yourself “What point do I deliver in this article?” If you have 1, you have an article, more than 1? You have multiple articles. [ReTweet This]

 

  • Q: How long should an article be? A: A good article size is 400-750 words. Consider breaking up longer articles into shorter focused ones. [ReTweet This]

 

  • Say what you mean & mean what you say: Proper grammar & formatting make your writing easy to understand; great content develops readership. [ReTweet This]

 

  • Need a simple way to create an article? Try tips. Choose 5-10 tips on success within your niche, elaborate on them & bam! A helpful article. [ReTweet This]

 

  • Resource Box Tip: Do not include multiple URL’s on all different expertise. This will confuse your readers on your commitment to them. [ReTweet This]

 

  • Content Tip: Specific articles=Targeted traffic. A deep exploration of 1 aspect of your niche works better than just skimming the surface. [ReTweet This]

 

  • Take the extra time to edit & proof articles. A little tweaking here & polishing there improves the quality & readability of any writing! [ReTweet This]

 

  • Keywords are like coffee: too weak & you don’t get that “kick” you need; too strong & it’s just too bitter to drink. Find the middle ground. [ReTweet This]

EzineArticles Tips and Training Snippets:

  • Golden rule of HTML for Article Writers: Every HTML tag you OPEN, must be CLOSED. http://is.gd/ulS9 [ReTweet This]
  • Tip: Don’t use URL Shorteners in your Resource Box or article. Better to include a URL from a domain that you own/control for life. [ReTweet This]
  • Article Writing Tip: Let each article stand alone and deliver your intended message. Your readers will love the simplicity of your delivery. [ReTweet This]
  • “Hit the ground running” in your article body. Your 1st sentence and 1st paragraph should deliver immediate value to your reader. [ReTweet This]
  • Most authors find it’s easier to write (1) 1000 word article than (2) 500 word articles; yet (2) 500 word articles always outperforms. [ReTweet This]
  • Article Writing Tip: Don’t let your article’s primary aim be to attract traffic. Let it be to help your reader improve or solve a problem. [ReTweet This]
  • What’s the IDEAL word count? 400-800 words. Anytime you approach 1200 words or more, consider breaking the article in half. [ReTweet This]
  • Your resource box should not be more than 15% of the article body length. Don’t oversell here. Let your expertise shine through the article. [ReTweet This]
  • Resource Box: Include one benefit-oriented sentence about what specifically you can do for the reader that is related to your expertise. [ReTweet This]
  • If your reader wants to contact you, can they? Or do they need to be a sleuth? Add your name and contact info to your site and be known! [ReTweet This]
  • Article parts are not syndication friendly. Consider changing titles so each article stands alone and not dependent on another article. [ReTweet This]
  • If content is King, RELEVANT content is Queen; ie, the power behind the throne. Writing articles about lawn care doesn’t sell puppy food. [ReTweet This]
  • Your article should not need your article summary in order to make sense. The ARTICLE SUMMARY is a teaser to the full article. [ReTweet This]
  • Don’t quote or source in your articles. Readers want your voice. Give them what they have not yet discovered or read elsewhere. Be unique. [ReTweet This]
  • Make your articles easy on the eyes. Use proper format, paragraphs, and lists. The goal: easy reading and quick info-sharing. [ReTweet This]
  • If you COPY and PASTE from MS WORD and you use our WYSIWYG editor, be CERTAIN to use the “PASTE FROM WORD” button only. [ReTweet This]
  • Know and understand SEO, but don’t depend on it for your marketing plan. Draw readers with expert content, not just well-researched keywords. [ReTweet This]
  • Q: What tense should I write in? A: Present tense is more exciting and makes info sound current. Ex: Articles make (vs ‘made’) my day! [ReTweet This]
