Tips for Writing Great Content

Be unique

One of the best practices to always keep in mind when writing content to be published online is to be unique. No copying, plagiarism, or “borrowing” content from other websites. When you write content that you want people to find in the Search Engines (like Google, Yahoo, Bing), you need to be unique.

At Street Articles we are always on the look out for copied content from other websites that are already indexed in the search engines. Even if you own the content on your website and copy it over to SA, you won’t be allowed to publish it. As a rule of thumb, always write your content to be unique.

Be personal

If you can write an email to a friend, you can be an Author online! The best online authors in the world write from the heart and engage your audience while talking to them like you would a friend. When I read content online the best stuff is written “off the cuff”. By this I mean it’s written using the same kind of language that you do when you write an email.

What does this do?

It helps you connect with your audience on a level that is more personal. When you speak from your OWN voice, the emotional connection is much stronger.

You are real person with a voice, so write like a real person!

Use Images

Adding an image to your content will make it much more relevant for your readers and I strongly suggest doing this here at Street Articles. Within your Article Publish page you should associate an image that is relevant to your content.

No, you don’t have to, but I strongly recommend it.

Visual media within content will create an instant connection with anyone who visits your content. If you don’t have a relevant image, forget it, but if you can, take an extra couple minutes to dig up an image to give your content that extra boost. It’s easy.

Register your account with Twitter

Tweet your article!

One cool thing about Street Articles is that we allow you to connect your Twitter Account. Then, each time your articles are approved and published we Tweet it for you. You don’t even have to do anything. This will alert your Twitter followers that you’ve got new content published so that they can make their way over to SA and have a read.

If you don’t have your twitter account connected to Street Articles do it right now.

1- Log into Street Articles and click on “My Account” from the main menu. 2 - Scroll down to the Social Media section. 3 - Sign in With Twitter

Twitter will ask you if you want to approve the Street Articles application... Click YES!

Write about News & Current events

If you want to experience something spectacular, try writing about something in the News. Authors at SA who write about news have been known to experience 10,000+ clicks in just a few days! That kind of traffic is available if you want to go fishing for it. News is one of the top reasons why people use the Internet and with Street Articles you can get top rankings for news if your content is current.

These are a few tips on writing compelling and optimized articles at StreetArticles.

I hope that this helps you take your SEO game to the next level.

I think this fabulous advice Carson. i have found Street Articles to be the most effective way to drive traffic to my website. If you choose the right keywords articles can be ranked on the first page in under 20 minutes and I have experienced this first hand. I like your point about writing about a news item. I haven't tackled this one yet but it is in the plan for this week. Thanks for your advice Gayle

Hi Carson, I clicked through to your SA profile from the day 7 email in the 30 in 30 series and just read this article. When writing about a current news item I'm wondering what is the best way to find keywords. The keywords for the subject may not be established yet so how do you know what keyword to use? Do you just use a key phrase that's part of the article even though it may not have any search data yet? Thanks, enjoying the 30 day challenge:)

I found your articles. Guess to busy writing before. Great article! John

I never thought of the importance of images, it was until I came " here" when I learned about it, it has being great because in my case even helps me stimulate my writing and thoughts. Thanks.

Thanks for the insight! I must say I have never been as active in my writing until the 30 in 30 day challenge was brought to my attention. Now, It's like I cannot stop writing every chance I get (which is a good thing too because I am a very busy guy). Great article (but you already knew that). CHEERS ;)
