5 Steps to Creating Outstanding Articles
Newsletter Message

Terry Swejkoski

A writer should always put the readers' needs before their own. The whole concept of article writing is based upon knowledge of a particular niche topic. As the author, you are taking a position as the expert in the field you are writing about. If you are not an expert you should at least provide information you have learned from an expert in the niche, but in your own words, based upon your understanding. If you are using another author's excerpt to make a point, it must be foot noted or quoted properly to provide credit to the original author.


Publisher expectations are typically very straight foreword; this is especially true at the ConsciousWords Article Directory. The key ingredients to creating an outstanding article consist of few specific steps when coupled together provide the reader with valuable information.


There are typically 5 Steps the ConsciousWords Publisher reviews to accept an article:


  • Title - Is the title of the article clear and to the point - Short, on target phrase, properly formatted introducing the subject matter?
  • Article Body Links & Advertising - The article body should provide content only with zero self-serving links or advertisement, including not mentioning any names used within the resource box.
  • Length of Article - Is the article within the general limit guidelines of 350-750 words. (50 word minimum for Poetry)
  • Article Body Content - The article should be 100% original content (quotations allowed), not a chopped up rewrite of other articles pasted together just to add words for the purpose of increasing the length of the article. The content should be clear, short paragraphs or bullet points that engage the reader and provide excellent information and points of interest.
  • Resource Box - The resource box should be short and to the point. There should be no more than three self-serving links in the resource box. Links should take the reader to a website that compliments the article content, or simply provide a short author bio.

The article should endeavor to solve a reader's problem or provide interesting information to educate and serve the general public. If it is keyword stuffed it will receive lower points with the search engines, this is a reality most authors do not realize. Yes, it's important to utilize proper keyword structure and percentages; however, if you are simply trying to gain a better position by over using keywords to the point that the article does not flow well, you are hurting your self and more importantly the reader.


The number of websites added to the Internet is growing at an astonishing rate each day. If you are to gain a higher natural position, it is imperative that you provide content that serves the best interests of the public and provides links to websites with superior products or further educational material.


The secret to inspired writing is not found in the egoistic mind...it's found through the ConsciousWords that come from the depth of your true higher self. Learn more about writing from an inspired state, where your guidance is derived from feelings...rather than a cluttered mind.
