How To Save Your Articles From Rejection

Pouring your time and effort into writing an article only to have it rejected is mind-numbing and tedious. Here are some great tips to live by when it comes to writing articles that will get passed on the leading directories instead of shunned:
– Be genuine and don’t try to cut corners. Provide your readers with good quality content; articles aren’t just vessels for your link; they need to be worth reading! It’s partly because of this that article directories have become stricter over time and rightly so. Directories will not accept work that has been blatantly copied from other sources such as outside websites, blogs and other articles. It’s perfectly fine to go out and learn things for yourself and then write about them in your own words from experience. By doing this, you’re not only giving unique content, you’re also developing your own understanding of the subject and learning a great deal for yourself.
– Do not advertise or try to sell in the article, you may only advertise in the resource box. Avoid making your articles sound expedient or sales-sounding like you’re trying to pitch your readers, directories dislike this a lot and so do some readers.
– Grammar is essential, not only for your presentation and professional reputation, but for getting the articles passed in the first place. There may have been a time when they were more lenient when it came to spelling mistakes and errors, but that time has gone. Nowadays they are far stricter; they have their reputation to uphold too. Poor grammar helps neither party, so keep that grammar polished and everyone’s happy! Make sure you proof read your articles after you have completed them; if you have anyone else who would be willing to proof read them too, that wouldn’t hurt.
– The length of your article is must be above certain requirements, overtime word count requirements have also gone up on many article directories. You can make this work to your advantage however, as you can provide your readers with more content and also have more room to expand on certain points, so they can be understood in better depth.
– Avoid over-using your keywords, there is such a thing as keyword abuse/spam, don’t be an advocate of it. Use the 2% density guideline and always play it safe on this front. If you find yourself over-using a keyword and cannot help it, try using other words which mean the same thing. You can find out all kinds of different word variations by using a thesaurus.
