Format of the text
The text must have the minimum possible format, that is, this must be the simplest at the level of design elements. That is, do not use different text sizes. Use only the default text size.
The correct thing is that the text only bears:
- Bold: to highlight important points
- Italics: the minimum necessary, for appointments or words in another language.
- Free Guest Lists: they can be numbered or unnumbered. Simple lists, with points or numbers from the 1 onwards.
- To avoid: underlines, text colors, etc ...
If the text has been written in Word or in Google Docs, it is necessary to convert it to HTML format before uploading it to the web. For this you have to use a tool like this: https://word2cleanhtml.com. It puts all the text in Word or Google Docs, and returns the text in HTML. Then that HTML text is pasted in the WordPress HTML editor tab:
Keyword for content writing
This is possibly the most complex of the guide content writing, that's why I'm going to raise something the most basic and do the best you can. The keyword is a set of between 2 and 5 words that is very remarkable and is repeated a lot in the article. Example: if the article talks about a «human chain in La Coruña" so This set of 5 words could perfectly be a candidate for the keyword of the article. In fact, simply "human chain" could suffice in this example. Generally, the ideal is that the keyword is something that people usually search on Google.
How to know if a keyword usually has searches?
Use the Word Tracker tool: https://www.wordtracker.com/search (must be put in Territory, Spain) That it has results, that is, 10 searches, is enough. Do not use too trivial a word, for example: «peace». If you can no longer use Wordtracker because you have exceeded the search limit, you can also try Übersuggest.
The ideal is that it has results, but bad results, between 10 and 500 would be ideal. For example: "world march" is adequate, not excessively good because it only has 10, but adequate:
On the other hand, «peace», «love», ... are very bad because they have too high numbers, well above 500:
I am aware that sometimes it is very difficult to find a word that fits with these criteria. If you do not find one that fits, nothing happens.
The goal is to put this keyword at least 2 times in the text without counting headlines, or other points that I will comment below. One of the repetitions of this keyword, must be bold.
Titles and Titles
The main title (the one that appears just in the box above) must have between 50 and 75 characters. And you must include the keyword. That's why it's usually a good idea to choose the keyword, looking at the title
It is essential that the text has several titles, at least one 2 level title (2 Title in Word). Ideally, you should have 1 or several 2 level and 3 level holders.
As well It is advisable put a Subtitular in the section under the main title that says «Enter a subtitle here».
The size of the subtitle can be wide, ideally it has 121 and 156 characters, because it is going to use Meta description. further must also include the keyword.
Finally, it must be borne in mind that an 3 holder (H3) must have an H2 above and there must be at least 1 H2 holder to always give that hierarchy. H2> H3> H4.
Therefore, if we look at the order of the holders if for example we have these three orders
- H2 - H3 - H4 - H2 - H4: It would be wrong because an H4 always has to be preceded by an H3
- H3 - H2: It would be wrong, because the H3 always has to be preceded by an H2
- H3 - H3 - H3: It would be wrong because there has to be at least one H2
- H2 - H3 - H4 - H4 - H2 - H3 - H2 - H3. It would be fine because the hierarchical order is respected.
Finally, the keyword must go, in 1 of content titles (it does not matter if it is in a Title 2 or Title 3).
Links to other websites
Try not to use outgoing links, except 2 per text max , although better only 1.
Unless it's an external link to a page with a lot of reputation ** , Wikipedia type, a powerful newspaper or something like that, put in link as NOFOLLOW in the options:
It is important that every article link at some point to another point of the web. If it does not occur where, you can always resort to link to the main page.
For example: «In the last World March, we were able to attend ... »
In the internal link, do not put the NOFOLLOW.
** If you do not know if you have a lot of reputation or not, enter https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo and put the URL of the domain, example «hoy.es».
Nap below the 100.000 in Global Rank, then you do not need to put the NOFOLLOW. But if it is above, yes you need to put it.
Before uploading an image simply keep in mind these factors:
- The name of the image should be simple, without «ñ» (change the ñ by n), without accents, and if there are spaces, change them by hyphens.
- When inserting the image, you must fill in the Title, Alternative Text and Description fields. You can put the same in the three sections.
- No image should exceed 1000 px in width.
As well It is necessary to put a Featured Image. If you put an image in the text, do not use the same image as a Featured Image. It is preferable that there is no image in the text, that there is no outstanding image. In the Title, Alternative Text and Description of the Featured Image, it is necessary to put the keyword.
The ideal size for the Featured Image is 960 x 540 or an aspect ratio of 16: 9. The width of the image must be between 600px and 1200px in width.
Use this shortcode:[su_youtube_advanced url = "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDvXQJgODmA" modestbranding = "yes" https = "yes"]
Simply changing the URL, by the corresponding one.
