3. Captivating title. Creating a compelling title to an article is key in attracting a great readership. Most of my articles are "How to" articles, or they are some type of tips article that solves a problem. For example, "Top 10 Strategies to...", "5 Secrets to Creating..", "The 3 Key Ingredients to...", or "7 Mistakes to Avoid". The general formula that I use is a number and a problem that most of my target market has or a number and a solution to a problem that they have.
4. Include your keywords. In order to drive traffic to your site, you'll need to include the keywords by which you want to be found in the title of the article. To maximize the effectiveness of the article, you'll want to use that same keyword 3-7 times in the content of the article.
5. Short paragraphs are best. You junior high English teach might cringe, but when you're writing online content, your paragraphs need to be no more than about 3 sentences each, and your sentences need to be rather simply constructed. Keep in mind that people are looking at light, not paper, when they're reading online. That means that stress on the eyes is different in this medium than reading a hard copy of something. Because many readers tend to scan online content rather than thoroughly read it, divide your article content into numbered bullet points for easier reading and comprehension.
