With each passing day, more and more people are writing content for the web, whether they are bloggers who write to “feed” their blogs, or are individuals who are paid to write articles for the internet. And in the midst of all this, there are experienced, and novice people, and this article is mainly aimed at those who are taking the first steps in writing content for the internet.
- Low-quality titles. Both titles and subtitles play a significant role in getting traffic from Google, as well as helping to help searchers find what they are looking for. Make sure the title tells readers exactly what the article is about (forget words you’ve found in the dictionary or “nice headlines”). Also, divide the text into subtopics so that visitors can quickly “roll their eyes” through the content and find the information they want.
- Writing for yourself. Sorry, but if you are” writing for yourself “on the internet, you probably will not make money. Unlike published writers, you do not have editors to draw red crosses on your text and cut off what’s over, so you have to get straight to the point to get traffic. Remember that when you write for the web, you are writing to readers – first – and second to Google. Yes, this includes poems and stories, which can even lead to many followers, but that will never bring you a great income if you do not know what you are doing. Of course, you can write on topics you like, but you should not fall in love with your voice and write only for yourself!
- Uncommon articles . Titles and content are only a” small “part in creating a compelling and readable article. You need to catch the reader’s attention, especially if it’s a long article – Insert photos, videos, and highlighted text boxes with engaging information to keep your reader interested, and keep reading (preferably to the end). Do not go into detours – if the user came to your article for information, then give him that information, instead of rambling on other subjects.
- Send the readers through links. Sometimes I come across articles where there are dozens of links. Link to other unrelated items, Wikipedia, random websites, links to articles on other sites, etc. I feel like I’m passing “the mouse” over a minefield. Building links are relevant, however, should never exaggerate.
- Stressed if you do not start receiving traffic. Many new bloggers as soon as some visitors come in assume that their work is done. Wrong! Others can not get traffic and start to stress. Wrong! Sometimes it can take months for quality content to start getting traffic on a regular basis. So in the early days, the best thing is not even to write more and more content. As time goes on, you will improve your knowledge and skills at the writing level, and visitors will enter in ever greater numbers. There may also be a good time to take a look and edit the first articles you’ve written and published. I’m sure you’ll be surprised how bad they were. That happened to me! When I reread some of the first articles I wrote, I was embarrassed!
