    Best way to make good content

    The best way i belive to have good content is the following

    -Spell check and having Good Grammar. Remember it isnt about using the largest words it about using them in where they fit. Cohent is best.

    -Dont Sound like everybody else. Sound different bring a new view.

    -Do list like me. Top 10, Bullet points, List Ect. Because it is easy and not as hard to misspell. Also it Goes down the points one by one and is much better for your readers. Why? because they get the point one by one and doesnt bore them. Remember in Highschool when you did history papers you would just find the bullet points and get the quick info to add to a report.

    -Stay away from slang and if you do use slang use it in quotes only.

    -Use Colors Only when needed. If your warning people then Put it into Red and if you have points you might want to make the points bold to make them stand out.

    Keep working hard just write original content and you should be like me 100+ articles and counting like our national Debt. This my 100 post too!

    Oh dear. If you are to sound authoritative, double check your posts. At the moment you come across as being a spammer.

    The point I am to make is why are they easy? Easy to write (something I beg to differ with)? Easy to read? Justify with examples please.

    slang is fine, me thinks. just "define" it somewhere up top or on first use, and then you can use it for the rest of the article.

    Write in your own style, do not try to steal contents from other websites.
    Yes grammar and vocabulary is important. Try to use common words instead of technical words.

    Now most of the blog just carry the quantity of words not the quality. If a topic is new for a blogger, at least 1 hour research is essential to write something about it.
    The best style is that, which is easy to understand.

    I would even venture as far as saying that grammar and spelling should be #1 on your list. I hate nothing more than reading an article with typos.

    I trust that your writing should be enough strong to keep the user reading and flow of writing should catch the user....may be read what you wrote 10 times before you publish it online

    How you write depends on what you are trying to accomplish. An informational Websites content will be written differently than a site that is largely an advertisement for a product or service.

    Advertising copy plays by different rules. What you learned about sentence structure and grammer in English classes goes out the window. Short sentences are better than long ones. And it doesn't mater if you start a sentence with "and".

    Website content writing should be approached just like any other writing project. Pull out a sheet of paper and start writing. Revise, edit and add to your finished rough draft, then polish.

    That's my process anyway.

    I have a question: I have noticed that everyone refers to the content in a Website as "contents"; or, they speak of "writing contents" or "contents writing". When I think of "contents" I think of a "Table of Contents".

    Wouldn't it be more correct to refer to the copy, or the written portion of a Website as its, "content"?

    Just curious. This seems strange to me.

    This is true. But the style is very different if you are writing for advertising than if you are writing text intended purely to provide information.

    Advertising copy writing is a whole other animal. Rules get broken.

    The reason for this is that in advertising, you only have a few seconds to capture the readers attention. Then, once you have that attention, you must convey your main ideas very quickly. Or the reader is gone.

    This is why they say that short sentences (and short paragraphs) are more effective than long sentences and long paragraphs. It give the reader small pieces of information that can be assimilated quickly.

    Someone looking for a product or service wants to cut to the chase and determine very quickly if you have what they are looking for. If they want more detailed information on your offering, you can provide it on other pages. At that point (if you get them that far) your style will be different, and you can provide all the details and fine points of your offering.

    Obviously, for a technical article, or Website that is intended to provide information to the reader on a given topic, this would not be the style you would want to use.

    Grammar is important. Spelling is important. Original content is important. Proper keyword research is important.

    Except that Googlebot does not use keywords. Keywords are virtually useless for Google, and probably most other search engines these days too. Reason is they were too often abused in the past by Web designers.

    What Google looks at is content. Does it match the description and title of your site? That's the main thing. Content, content, content.
