How to submit inter-connected content for the academics' nicheWith our site moving towards developing into an exclusive academics portal, we suggest that members try to submit as much of inter-connected content as possible.
After a discussion with the Webmasters, a sample of such content has been prepared. Have a look at the list of contents below that is focused on one theme but all of which are essentially providing inter-connected content through three dimensions -
1. A short article on the basic career path of Fine Arts.
2. A longer article on the best institutes that offer courses on Fine Arts.
3. A comment on the Education Series' city page of Chennai.
Similarly, when raising a forum thread or submitting a forum response, we could provide a relevant link to something related to academics, such as a course or an Ask Expert query. This would also be ideal for whatever you submit anywhere, especially AE answers and article comments. Even in some job posts, you can see how members are providing links to the school, college, or course pages. Within the descriptive text of a school or college and even updated info, you can provide such internal links. The basic idea is simple - keep the reader within our portal as much as possible, with the links being followed from one page to another. The longer the reader stays within our site, the better for us, as it may generate revenue, it may lead to sharing the pages with others, and the reader may perhaps even get interested to register as a member and contribute quality content. Overall, internal links show that our site has a lot of related relevant content and gives a boost to ISC as a one-stop hub for all academic-related information.
Those who wish to get further guidance can respond to this thread and further suggestions that could help towards developing ISC into a niche site are also welcome.
