Review of Your Article: Content and Presentation dominated by Keyword Creation

When you are shooting for the star, you get a star. Logic here is very simple – do not get your eyes crossed. Keep on topic right through. Articles and keywords are linked through content and its presentation. If you are baking apple pies, then everything must be dealing with apple pies. If you suddenly start talking about cooking a turkey readers will get their goose cooked.

Content and presentation revolve around an idea – topic you choose, say it is
“Moon, our natural satellite”. You write about how it reflects light from the Sun, the gravitational force on the moon and how man launched rockets to travel to moon and find out what is present there. People who write on technical subjects too have to follow format.


I)                  Common mistakes by writers 

A)  Creating ‘blank verse’

Many authors specialize in ‘blank verse’. They write the first thing that comes to their minds and then finish it when their ‘ink’ runs dry.  There is no schema there is no planned approach to topic and mostly the thought flow is uninspiring and dry. It is as interesting as smelling dried cow dung preserved for days at an end. They start with the ‘moon’ and end with a ‘stare’. This “idyllic” state is filled with some inane ramblings of self-glorification and insane repetitions. Of course, blank verse has its own takers too.

Content without any direction is a waste of time. If you are to write even two lines, if it makes sense to majority of readers, then your time is well spent. When the beginning and ending are not linearly aligned and there is no grammar the idea of creating articles filled with “blank verse” is bound to mislead every reader who comes across it. A better idea would be to submit empty sheets as your “article” – at least they will not mislead anyone.

B)   No details for your content

When you present some topic it must be detailed into items and subdivided into paragraphs. Now, let us say, you were talking about literature and suddenly decided to introduce comedy. You must elucidate comedy with some example and quote an example. If there are learned people who have read what you are quoting they will appreciate it. If you use “Why did the chicken cross the road?” kind of comic statements, readers will hurry off to find something better to do. If you are writing about a plant, you subdivide content into paragraphs and keep presentation interesting by quoting some examples.

Idea of subdividing your article into small bits or items helps readers choose what they do not know and read about it. This is success for any writer. Concentrate on achieving this since everything will fall in place when you have made steps that are easy to follow. You could break your article into the following topics.

a)     Preparing your kitchen garden
b)    Prepare nursery
c)     Preparing garden soil
d)    Sowing and growing
e)     Pests and insecticides
f)      Protecting from grass and weeds

In a separate section, you could also deal with harvest and sales of your produce. You could include packing methods and preservation techniques. Of course a study of market conditions and techniques would prove invaluable.

II)              Common errors in article writing

Article writers use repetitions that make readers wonder what exactly is going on. Even experienced writers sometimes commit simple grammatical mistakes that make the article look very bad. For this reason, one has to revise the article before they submit it.

Usage error for many writers

This is a look at some typical errors that many writers overlook.
1) Can’t—won’t: When you use these two words, you are distinguishing between the choice available to the doer of the action and the absence of choice.
2)  Than—then: This is simple and experienced writers do not commit this writing error. While the first is used to do comparison, the latter is always used to follow up a conditional statement.
3)    Who—which—that: This is a puzzle that experienced writers too commit, mainly because they cannot be bothered to keep on correcting the computer. They will use the correct form ‘that’ and computer will suggest ‘who’ or ‘whom’. When this happens repeatedly, they just give up and use the computer suggestion. Which and that are indications of inanimate things or actions while who definitely is someone animate. When you do not have to make a clear distinction you use ‘that’ while ‘which’ is used to make definite distinctions.

Use of keywords

Interspersing keywords into the article is vital. It tells where your stress lies and why your thought flow is as it is. You might not understand this but think

about it as oars – you are navigating your boat across to the other side. Without oars, you are at the mercy of the stream.

When you are writing about baking bread, you must use all related keywords such as ‘oven’, ‘flour’, ‘bake’, ‘yeast’ and maybe ‘nuts’ if you want. Articles that do not write about all these will be overlooked by search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo. Though each search engine has its own definitions for qualifying as top-ranking article, the common list shows how articles must be attractive, use uniformly distributed keywords, have organic traffic and have organized links.

III)           Bring interest in your article

Finding ways to keep content absorbing

Readers do not care to spend time over “perhaps it could be” and “you should try something”. They want results and action – if you provide it they will read your article.

Make the article incident-based: When I was walking to the train station this morning on my way to the office, I noticed a small chap running around a puddle by the side of the road. This is perfectly normal since most lads like to

play around, except that this boy was blind. Got your attention – the boy does it every day.

Write article in present tense: Do never wander into the past – it spoils reader interest. When you learn to write in present tense, you learn to writer perfect articles.

Keep asking readers some questions: This is vital since if do not ask questions then the person will not want to read anymore. Why is this article different? Because, it deals with one important aspect of online article writingoptimization. If your article is not optimized (like mentioned in the steps above), your article will not be recognized on the Internet.

Having the sum of article writing strategies in your grasp, it is time to take up your pen. It is time for creating articles and penning content with spectacular presentations that wow readers world over. You can begin now.
