The Article text section has a toolbar that can help you format your article properly.

Writing tips:

  1. In terms of formatting, customers usually look for:
  • Bullet points
  • Headers 
  • Hyperlinks to sources
2. If you’re pasting from MS Word or similar software, click the Paste as Text icon in the toolbar so you can retain the formatting you’ve done.

    3. You can check the word count in the lower right corner of the article text box.

    You’ll also see the word count and readability level of your text to the left of the article text box. If you’re struggling with the readability check, review the readability check FAQs, or try using Yoast content analyst or the Hemingway app

    4. Create the meta information. You need to provide three things:

    • Meta title: This can be the same as your article title or a shorter version of it.
    • Meta description: This is a summary of your article. The important thing to remember is that you need to include your SEO focus keyword phrase in the meta description. You should use it as is, with no words or symbols in between.
    • SEO Focus Keyword Phrase: Provide a keyword phrase if the customer did not provide one in the assignment instructions.


    Here’s a good example of meta information:

    Meta title: Digital marketing trends 2021

    Meta description: If you wonder what will help you nail it next year, we’ve prepared a few insights to get ready for the digital marketing trends of 2021.

    SEO focus keyword: digital marketing
