Writing Guidelines

Title

  • Title should be very specific.

For example:

  • 'Ebola' (Bad),

  • 'Treatment of Ebola' (Better),

  • 'Treatment of Ebola without any medicines' (Best).

  • Try avoiding words like “the”, “in”, “for” in the title.

For example:

  • Treatment of Ebola (Bad)

  • Ebola Treatment (Good)

  • Try avoiding the use of a word more than once in the title.

Body

  • Try writing detailed information on the topic you choose. Just because a topic is specific, doesn't mean you should write thin content.

  • Try highlighting the important words/terms through BoldItalics, Underline.

  • Try dividing the content into sub-topics, so that user gets the overview of the content. Nobody wants to read a long topic until they know what kind of information they will get by reading the page.

  • Give meaningful titles/headings(Refer Title Guidelines) to each sub topics explaining each of them, rather than explaining them all in a single heading divided into multiple paragraphs.

  • Try adding photos to the content to make it more informative and lively. On the contrary, too many photos can crowd the content and distract users, so keep it in the balance.
