    Articles contest: submit articles on "Medicinal values of _________"

    Yo! Here's an articles contest just for ISCians! The topic is Medicinal value(s) of _____. You can write on anything at all, such as plants, a vitamin, an organic product, a particular type of ingredient, a health product, etc.

    Simply submit as many articles as you wish on this topic, with the words "Medicinal value(s) of _____" clearly mentioned in the title of the article with additional words as appropriate without being too lengthy. Each article should be submitted only in the articles section in the appropriate category. Once you submit an article, put the URL of the article in a response in this thread. List all your articles in one response only. You need not wait for approval of the article, but the URL should not be of an article which is in draft mode. If the URL of the article is not submitted here by the closing date, then it will not be considered for the contest prize.

    It is a good idea to interlink your article to other internal pages of ISC, including not just to another article, but also to an Ask Expert page or a forum thread or even a course or institute. Naturally, the links should be relevant to your article.

    There appears to be a discrepancy. Closing date says 31st March, while the last date of submission is mentioned as 25st March. Which of the two dates is correct?

    Clarifying what Kalyani stated:
    1. Yes, if another member has already submitted on the same thing, you can too. However, I personally feel that if already two articles on the same have been submitted, yours as the third one may not get picked up by search engines. So ideally select ones not covered and which two members have clearly stated they will be writing on. Of course, every article will be considered individually in terms of quality but some products do have the same medicinal values so it is possible that if yours, being a later article, is not of a better quality than the earlier ones, your article may get fewer points and cash credits.

    2. Yes, the three words 'Medicinal value of' or 'Medicinal values of' must appear in the title. It has been selected by the Webmasters for SEO and hence must be included in the title.

    It is not necessary though that the title should begin with those words. You can smartly incorporate other keywords for SEO,

    Here are a few examples:
    What are the medicinal values of______
    How the medicinal values of _______ have health benefits
    Top 5 medicinal values of _________
    Why the medicinal value of ____________ is good for health
    Amazing medicinal values of____________
    Best medicinal values of__________
    Know why___________has wonderful medicinal values

    Apply your mind and put smart titles for SEO!

    Respected Madam,
    Can I participate in the contest ? My article section is blocked.

    Seema Mittal

  • #593285

    Last month you had been instructed to be active in the forum so that you could improve your English skills. No such activity has been seen on your part so how can the Webmasters gauge your English skills to restore your posting permission for the articles section? Unfortunately, without access to posting in the articles section you will not be able to participate in this contest.

    Keep day life will get tired of upsetting you.

  • #593289
    I repeat my request to everyone - don't just keep submitting articles & adding to your list without first checking this thread to see what others have selected or submitted. Do try to write different articles which have not been selected or submitted by others! There is no point in flooding our articles section with same/similar content.
    Keep day life will get tired of upsetting you.

    Thank You Vandana Mam and Kalyani Mam,

    Amazing to know about the Medicinal Value of Salt

  • #593540
    This is a suggestion for those submitting articles on this topic, not in terms of being a contest entry, but generally as a useful tip for any article: if you are writing on something which is commonly to be found in your kitchen, garden or the local market, why not snap an image of it and incorporate it in the article? An image does enhance an article and provides a break in the monotony of reading text continuously.
    Keep day life will get tired of upsetting you.

  • #593556
    #593540: Is is a suggestion or direction? Does attachment of photo improve the score? Should the photos be clicked by us only?
    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

  • #593573
    Partha, that's a suggestion and not a direction. Articles with images have better chances for higher page index in Google / other search engines. And yes, if you have the produce at home, on which you are writing the article, then you can take a pic of the product and upload the attachment. If you take it from other sites, there may be copyright issues, so better to click yourself and attach the pic to your article.
    Thanks & Regards

    This is my article
    Medicinal use of Ajwain leaf

  • #593727
    I have no choice but to comment in the adverse. Pardon me if I am wrong. The articles submitted are sure to be researched or rewritten content. Unless, the authors have learned or trained in health care. Are we contesting for the best written (grammar, punctuation, locution etc.) or knowledgeable articles?

  • #593756
    Gangadharan V,

    We have no problems with adverse comments and criticisms. What is a problem (for you that is, not for us) is if you get stuck on one track and remain stubbornly adamant.

    As a new member, may I gently advice you to check out all the activities, features and guidelines of ISC before jumping to conclusions and taking pot shots at members' contributions. Of course an article needs to be researched properly before it is presented. This applies to everyone isn't it? Even medical professionals who submit content in reputed national and international journals will do so. You can see at the end of their articles a long list of books, periodicals and journals which they have sourced to gather in-depth details related to their own article. You may well say that authors here are not mentioning their references. Well, the Webmasters have not made it mandatory to do so. The essential requirement is not to copy-paste content word to word from sources, but to present content in individual, original ways.

    Further, authors here do not need to be trained in a specific field to write content of that field. I am not an English teacher. Yet, I have written an article which provides useful writing tips, including in it matter related to English (sentence formation, creating paragraphs, punctuation, etc.) I am not a banker but I have written informative articles related to availing of loans.

    Note that the articles contests organized here are aimed at getting good traffic & thereby revenue for the site. It also provides a platform for members to showcase their writing talent and earn in the process. They are not playing a game of one-upmanship (what you call contesting) to prove who is better in English skills (grammar, punctuation, etc) nor are they trying to prove they are more knowledgeable than some other author. They are, simply, submitting articles in their own individual style after gathering the necessary information on it. A majority of the authors here are long-term contributors who very well know the guidelines and rules. If at all content is found to be literally copied, then we have efficient editors to delete it. In the case of a contest like this one, based on the overall quality and the traffic it generates, articles will be selected for the contest prizes. Only in that sense they are competing with each other - a healthy competition it always is.

    I suggest that if you do not understand any section or any feature or general guidelines, enlighten yourself by enquiring via forum threads. That is, if you are truly keen on learning and contributing to this site.

    Also, you are requested to raise issues, if any, in a separate thread and not derail this thread. Do take care, too, in how you present your stand, maintaining basic forum etiquette as per Forum posting guidelines .

    Keep day life will get tired of upsetting you.

    This is a heads up. Anyone interested in writing on the topics I had selected and that I have not covered yet, is free to use them. Though I have drafts ready, I will not be submitting the articles for the contest. I will post them later, at leisure.

    I hope the opposite to be true as well, and these are not mere words. As of now, the latter seems to be true.

  • #594027
    Concern editor to note please that my article on medicinal value got posted thrice while I have posted it once only. Please delete other two.

  • #594037

    Please give us the URL of the article you wish to retain and the URLs of the duplicates. Sometimes a member may post more than once, we delete the duplicates & then the member will say one of the duplicates had more info and hence should be retained & the first one should be deleted.

    Keep day life will get tired of upsetting you.

  • #594049
    ME, you are right. However, you can delete any two since the content are all same. You can delete URL NO1 &2 and keep NO3. I have mentioned the URL below.

    1. NO1

    2. NO2

    3. No3

  • #594050

    The needful has been done & the duplicates removed.
