Here are some very important tips as to how to write good articles:
Selection of Topic: If you are not provided with the topic, then select the one from your field of interest. If you are good at training dogs you can start writing about how to train dogs and how to communicate with dogs. It's not a big deal, as you already know what to write and what are the steps involved. Just be at it and write something about what all you know.
Now let's suppose that you are provided with the topics to write on. Half the battle is won! But some very significant points have to be considered. Start off with making a good research work on the topic over the net.
Research: Make some careful and serious research work on the subject that you are going to work on. The key to the success is to put some necessary information about the subject – some information that people would like to have. This is an awesome way to increase the stick time of the visitors to your copy. Take down the points that you want to write on and arrange them according the importance.
Word Limit: The standard word length is around 500 - 600 words or a visitor would far rather read an article of 700 words if it gives helpful information in abundance. But no one will read a puzzling 1000 word article that doesn't say something very important.
Title: Title is the first line of the article. So it has to be attractive enough to grab the visitors' attention. A good title should create an eagerness in the visitors to start reading the article. This way reading every single line the reader should feel an urge of reading the next sentence. Remember unless a title is keyword rich, the purpose is not actually served. So try to come up with a title that has at least one keyword. But more than two keywords in a tile may be a mess.
Write for the audience: There's point attracting the mass, who are looking for the discounted sport shoes for the upcoming soccer tournament, if you are running a pet business. Develop the content of your article for the people who are looking for a dog or a cat. Here's where the importance of selecting a topic lies.
Parts of Article: A good article should contain three essential parts – Introduction, Main idea (body) and Conclusion.
Introduction – Start off writing with an effective introduction that should map out what actually follows. This strategy is most effective across all types of writing, whether it is a press release or a advertisement. Tell them what actually you are going to tell them.
Main idea -- This is the main body of the article that should contain the detailed discussion of points that you got while researching on the subject. Most important points should be discussed prior to the less important ones. By this way you can increase the visitor’s stick time to your article.
Conclusion -- As for the conclusion, it is just as important as the introduction of the article. Your conclusion should be effective enough to leave a final and long lasting impression on the readers' mind. It's the rule of thumb that you should not add anything concluding. Make sure that the conclusion is in the same style as the introduction, telling the entire thing in gist.
Subheadings and quotes: If you want to come up with different ideas and thoughts, the best way is to use subheads and incorporate different thoughts within a single copy. On the other level, sub headings help the readers to find detailed information quickly. Use of quotes sometimes proves to be a great way to come up with an interesting write up, if used in proper places. But remember that too much use of quotes may spoil the entire essence of the article.
Keywords stuffing: By using appropriate keywords you can gain free and easy exposure on the Internet. The Internet users across the world look for information by typing specific words in the search engines. So it is of prime importance to incorporate these buzzwords properly in your content. If not done so, there are chances that the readers will be lost on someone else's copy. Keywords can be categorized into three categories, viz. primary keywords (most typed words), secondary keywords (second most typed words), and tertiary keywords (less searched keywords). The primary keywords should be used as densely 5 - 6 times in the article. The secondary keywords should be used at least 3 times and tertiary at least 2 times in the articles. Although the least typed keywords the Tertiary keywords has a special significance as the competition for such buzzwords are very low.
Grammar: Correct use of grammar is what is of prime most significance when it comes to any form of writing. Your write up need not be a Pulitzer award winning piece, but must be understandable to all. So use of simple words and simple sentences is highly appreciated.
Following these simple tips you can try out writing articles. As a beginner you can start off with something that you can write on. Just don’t worry about the keywords. This would come automatically as you mature. Little bit of research on keywords would be required, concentrate on your writing as you are a first time writer.
