From Part 4 of these 5-posts series, now Dee Power of Your Financial Independence Day is going to talk about How to Write Articles That Pull in Readers.

Choosing topics: The easy answer is to choose topics that are the same as the website/blog you are promoting. Narrow down the topic so it’s manageable in 350 to 400 words. That may sound like a lot if you aren’t proficient in writing but the words will fly by.

Write as if you were talking with a good friend and answering her/his questions. For example: If you have a dog care website one question you could answer is “How do I know how much protein is in dry dog food?”

Handle one question or topic per article. Go to yahoo answers for ideas for questions. Go to article directories and see which categories have the most entries. Leaf through hard copy publications to see the topics of their articles.

How to use keyword phrases in your article
Use the keyword phrase in the title as the first few words of the title. Use it once at the end of the first paragraph and again in the last paragraph. Don’t use it more than 4 or 5 times throughout the article. There used to be a rule that a good article, one that shows up on the first page of Google, uses the keyword phrase as a total of at least 10% of the article. That would mean that for a 400 word article, natural dog foods would be used 13 times. That rule, also known as keyword stuffing isn’t relevant any more.

Duplicate content penalty is a myth as far as articles are concerned
Google penalizes for duplicate content but not in the way that affects articles. The penalty is for the same, or nearly same content, on a website or blog that is used to manipulate the search engines. The same narrative is used on different pages within a website with the only difference being the keyword phrase.

Duplicate content penalty doesn’t apply to articles of blog posts. If it did, newspaper syndication companies, like the Associated Press, wouldn’t use it. Here is what Google says about the penalty.

3 different methods of writing

Sitting and staring at a blank computer screen while you struggle to get started on your article can be frustrating. Here are three methods that work.

1. Tell them what you’re going to tell them. Tell Them. Tell them what you told them. In the first paragraph state what the article is going to be about. Make a list of 3 bullet points that will be covered in the article. Write a paragraph to explain each bullet point and why it’s important. The final paragraph is a summary of what has been covered in the bullet points.

2. State the problem. State why the problem is important to the reader. Provide a general solution. Provide a specific solution.

3. Introduction of the problem. 3 or 4 tips to solve the problem. Conclusion

Spelling and grammar are important

Using correct spelling and grammar is a courtesy to your readers. While just about everyone except perhaps, your high school English teacher, forgives a spelling error or two, articles loaded with mistakes take away from the content of the article. The mistakes get in the way of the information you want to convey.

Take the time to proof your articles. One way is to let the article sit for 24 hours and then go back to it with fresh eyes. If you’re terrible at proofing see if someone else will do it for you. A clean grammatically correct article shows you value your reader’s time and that they are important to you.

The importance of the author bio box

You’ve incorporated a killer keyword phrase in the title of the article, creatively used it throughout the article and given your reader critical content. Don’t lose them at the author bio box.

Most article directories allow the author to use a credit box at the end of the article with a couple of live links. A good way to capture the reader and motivate them to click on your link is to offer a teaser of more information through the link. Another way is to offer a free report on the same topic as the article.

Spend a little time on your author bio box. Use it to establish your credibility as an expert. Be friendly. Build trust with the reader.
