Posted by on May 17 2012 | Web Content Writing

Writing website content is becoming a big challenge these days. People pay a closer attention to what is written on the websites they visit. Therefore, it becomes important to deliver good content to the readers so that they find it helpful and at the same time are engaged while reading the content. In order to make your website content helpful it is important that you follow the do’s and don’ts for effective writing.

Do’s 

Keep it Short and Simple: always make sure that website content should be written to the point. This is because most of the readers would not like to spend time reading something that is long. Readers would be ready to read short and brief content, clicking on links and may end up buying something.

Follow SEO Writing Rules: it is important that while writing content for website, you keep SEO in mind. This is important because you must have written the most engaging and interesting content for the website, but until and unless it does not appear in the search engine results then no one would be able to see it. Therefore, SEO keywords are extremely important for you to be able to make your writing visible in the results.

Importance of Titles and Subtitles: It is important that you break down your content into titles and subtitles. This is will make your content appear more organised, and the readers who are just visiting the websites for a few seconds can actually read the subtitles to get an idea about the entire write-up.

Don’ts

Never Use Sales Language: Avoid salesman pitch when writing for web. While giving all the information about the products, your language should be action oriented and not sales oriented.

Do not Sound very Formal: Remember you readers would like to read something that answers their problems in a friendly manner, therefore, use conversational style of writing.

    Following the don’ts has always been an issue. Its all in the mind of the writer and the requirements of the client. However, sticking to the rules is also essential (if at all that’s possible).
