It is important to note few points before writing an article or post something on a website. For example, ISC (IndiaStudyChannel) is an educational niche website and one has to write and publish the article more relevant, or study material or education topic or close to educational matter or associated keywords instead of general stuff for effective response from the search engine.

You might have heard SEO (Search Engine Optimization) recently or since long but you might have worked on it and wouldn't have got enough result afterward except little improvement. Why? If the website (domain) and its content with SEO is irrelevant then it won't work much. (Like this article, it may not fetch enough traffic due to basic Search Engine Optimization guideline given but it may also work if the search engine consider it as 'writing', 'education' and 'guideline' keywords.)

How to work on effective content? You can find few guidelines on these, below.

Things to remember for effective Content Writing:

  1. Domain matching.
  2. URL matching.
  3. Attractive headline.
  4. Summary or First para matching.
  5. At least 400 to 800 words with relevant detail
  6. Basic SEO and not over used it
  7. At least one image usage
  8. H2 or H3 tag use for summary title
  9. Few relevant internal links
  10. Regular contribution on relevant topic
  11. Short-term and long-term articles
  12. One relevant video (embed code) will be an added advantage

Domain matching:

It is really important. If you keep on writing and posting other than education (school, college, exam, time-table, result and on) topic in this (Education) site then it won't work despite regular contribution. Writing about XYZ in ABC domain won't be helpful. So, remember this tips.

URL matching:

Domain is okay, writing article also matching the domain but URL is not matching it then there will be slight issue for your content or article. So, try to create better URL for the relevancy. For example, is far better than or

Attractive headline:

It works like face is the index of the mind. The headline title automatically convert as URL in some websites. You can tune it if not auto-generated. 'How to...' or 'Tips and Tricks of...' etc. headline would help the article.

Summary or First para matching:

After everything is matches from domain to URL and headline, the next one is, article summary that brief about the next whole content. This is very important to let your reader stick and continue to read the entire article in detail that helps less bounce rate too.

At least 400 to 800 words with relevant detail:

It is better to give as much as detail in every article about the subject topic. The more words, the better detail and presentation to all including search engine and the visitors.

Basic SEO and not over used it:

If you write more than the above said words, it is better to use basic SEO in very few paragraph. Learn what is SEO and how to use SEO in the article etc. from online sources available.

At least one image usage:

The article needs better content including relevant image to better explain the audience. Adding at least one image in the article would help the overall content.

H2 or H3 tag use for summary title:

H2 or H3 tag is better than bold or italic or underline tag for the sub-title. You can use it effectively and it will result as better presentation and SEO perspective too.

Few relevant internal links:

It is always a good idea to add three to five relevant subject internal links to get more pageviews for your other related articles. So, spend few more extra minutes (leaving laziness) to learn, know and add internal link in each post that would benefit you for sure.

Regular contribution on relevant topic:

Writing a article once in a month or few months or year won't help to get numbers of traffic to it. Try to be active, write and publish once in a week or earlier. Writing and publishing latest updates on the subject regularly would help even more.

Short-term and long-term articles:

There are two types of articles, one will give short-term traffic and the other one is long-term traffic to your articles. So, you need research and analyze to decide which one you would like to write on a particular domain.

One relevant video (embed code) will be an added advantage:

It is not necessary but if you have matching video for the subject matter then don's miss to add it and this will enrich your article and video, more.

Please note, mismatching domain, URL and content etc. won't give enough traffic. If you want to write about the Software or Code then visit that website / domain, like instead of writing them on a travel website. And if you want to write about the Tech topic then go to website like instead of an entertainment website, and these would help you even better to learn, contribute, getting traffic and earn online.

If you have a reasonable number of article published and Google AdSense account approved then you can earn online from your contribution too. In general organic traffic (via search engine) is far better compare to promoting articles in various medium.

Interesting article by the author. Good tips provided for content writing. I will like to mention here that today there is a crowd of the writers on the internet and a lot of content is being uploaded on a daily basis and in such a situation it is not easy to outstand one's contribution and make it conspicuous in the eyes of the internet surfers and readers. So what is required is the quality and effectiveness of the content. If the writer can bring out some new ideas and propositions from his study in the matter and include it in the write up then it can attract that extra attention of the readers. The writer should be precise and bulleted in his approach to explaining the subject and avoid repeating the same point again and again. Good content will include examples, hilarious notes and pictures to support the main theme of the article and will keep the reader engaged till the end. Good content writing is difficult but not impossible to attain.
