    Write a Knol - New payment program from ISC

    +++++++++++++++++++
    This program is merged with regular link submission program
    +++++++++++++++++++


    Have you heard about "Wikipedia" ? That is the most visited source of knowledge in internet. You can find information about almost anything in that website.

    Google just launched a new site very similar to Wikipedia. This site is called "KNOL" (which stands for Knowledge). This site is expected to grow very fast since it owned by Google.

    Since the Knol site is very new, there is not much content. This is a great opportunity for all of us to create content about important things (places, people, or any other topic that people want to search).

    ISC is starting a new payment program regarding this site.

    Members of ISC can create articles in Knol.Google.com about any universities in India with a reference link to the corresponding university page in ISC. For each published and valid article (an article is known as 'Knol' in that site) with a link to the university page in ISC, we will pay up to Rs 50 and give up to 50 points.

    After you publish a valid Knol, you should post the link in our Links section so that we will know about it and we can credit accordingly.

    NOTE:

    1. Do not spam the Knol website
    2. Post Knols only if you are good in English. They will simply delete articles with very poor English
    3. The article should not look like it is written to promote ISC. It should be genuine information about the university.
    4. Do not copy even a single line of text from other sites. Every line should be written in your own words
    5. We will accept a maximum of 5 posts per university. So, before you post, do a search in Knol website and also in our links section.
    6. Each Knol should have a link to the corresponding university page in ISC with the anchor text as the university name, like the sample page below.

    How to get started ?

    Take a look at the sample Knol I posted - http://knol.google.com/k/tony-john/mahatma-gandhi-university/9b482gdtghws/5#

    Go to our Universities section and identify the university you want to post.

    Go to http://knol.google.com/ and search for the university you like to post. If there are not more than 5, then create your own.

    After you create an article, Save it and Publish it.

    Return to ISC and submit a link to your Knol in our Links section

    For first few people, if you can post the link to your Knol below here as a response, I can give my review comments.

    The Knols by Ramkumar and Ankush are excellent. Keep up the good job. make sure you do not copy any piece of content from other sites.

    The post by Sunil Reddy do not qualify for the following reasons:

    1. No paragraph headers
    2. Insufficient information

    Please edit and improve the quality of the post.

    Hi Ankush Das,
    your knol is very good and excellent. I saw it. I want to know how do you add the paragraph headers. for example in your Knol about university of Calcutta, you have put the following headings.

    1. Introduction to University of Calcutta
    2. Faculties at the University
    3. Colleges affiliated to University of Calcutta
    4. University of Calcutta Address

    And how did you put the links to these headings in the Contents. Kindly help me how you have done it. I am also planning to write a knol on BITS, Pilani.


    See my Knol here.
    Bits, Pilani

    I would like to modify it by adding more details about BITS, Pilani

  • #22576
    Hi Tony, I have seen most of the Knols and most of them seem to have been copied from different sources. You can easily identify the copied content different font sizes. Everything has to be written by the members only and not copied from other sites. Tony has already mentioned it. I don't know still why most of the people are copying it from other sites. Please all members correct it. It is not at all difficult to identify copied ones from non-copied ones. Most of them are copied from Wikipedia.

    As for your question Raghav, to put the headings, go to format and you will find different styles of headings. Give more information in your Knol but make sure that you do not copy them from other sites.

    Hi Tony,

    I would like to take up this job in verifying and keep checking for approving the links of knol.

    As now we will receiving many knol links with no links to ISC, same content from home page, duplicate page for the same university.

    I would like to bring this up.

    1) Copy the content, however try to modify it and make it into points.
    2) Do not copy and paste the exact content from home page of the University website. As this copyright violation. If you would like to know it is copyrighted or not, please go to the bottom of the page.
    3) If a member is recreating a page which is already existing in knol, then the member should get less points and less revenue. As it duplication.

    Note : Before writing any thing knol, please go through the instruction of knol. As knol is strictly moderated and if they find anything wrong your account will be blocked.

    Always select Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License, as this will for all workers, who would like to add content.

    Editors and Admin, please give your view on the above points.

    Shreshtha,

    Still of the titles in your Know is "Mahatma Gandhi University". Please correct it.

    Also, you have too many hyperlinks in your Knol. We do not want more than 1-2 hyper links in the Knol.

    Nitin,

    You have given a hyper link to us in thebottom, but only 1 word is used as hyperlink (Andhra). The link should be Andhra University (both the words together)


    nihal, your Knol is good.

    Gurpreet Singh, your knol is good. But seem to be copied and so not eligible for payment.

    Lenin, there is some thing wrong. Your first Knol seem to be very colorful and the reason could be you copied the html from some sites. The second Knol - the hyper link is "for details" which is quite useless. The anchor text of the hyperlink should have the university name in it.

    Hi Akhil,

    We do not have any color code restriction. You can post your knol in any color, till it looks good and does not violates.

    This is first time that I have seen some one asking about the color restriction. The reason we request you to change the color is it should be pleasing for a person who look at it.

    Your knol is perfect and looks good. The only reason we are saying your knol or someone will not be approved is if yo dont provide an access or direct link to ISC.

    Happy knol.

    2) Related to referral of Sandy : that needs to be look after Tony/Jose as they have started the referral of specialist and amount for referring.

    3) Out of 6 paper that you have posted 4 have got rejected. The remaining were posted after the payment program was closed on 31st July.

    Hi,

    It totally depends on the webmaster. You are not the only person in the queue for the links to be approved.

    there are many who are still waiting, and I am one of them. So we need to wait and watch as it is totally webmaster discretion when he is going to approve them.

    Have patience, you may see one day that you link has been approved. Keep posting more link and one day you will be paid off.

    I think you need to go through the instructions before posting the link in the links section.

    As the link that are going to be approved are only for the University..

    The knol that you have posted is related to a disease, and there are no links to be redirected to ISC.

    I would request you please go through the instruction in order to get the link and cash credits approved.
