    Here is how I write an article:
    1. A catchy title & search engine optimized
    2. A small intro alluring the readers to go through my article
    3. A intriguing description of the topic covering everything possible
    4. A concise but perfect ending

    Get a depth knowledge of the topic and also use related keywords in your article.

    Before starting the article homework needs to be done. By homework I mean intensive research of the topic/subject and understand the subject to the core level, which simplifies our task to a great extent when we finally start with the article.

    If you are familiar with the topic, you can start writing straightaway. However, if the article is of a niche that you are not familiar with, then you need to research a bit before commencing. Apart from this, the title should be interesting as well.

    Just remember this line when it comes to writing: "Writing is like pulling the trigger of a gun; if you are not loaded, nothing happens."

    The internet is already full of of crappy articles.
    Even a relatively decent article can stand up
    and get attention.
    So it worth to write your article well, not fast.
    Also remember writing is rewriting.

    I think you should write articles on those topics in which you are more or menne understand about in connection with education or employment.

    There's one point that gets overlooked sadly. For sure you don't need boundless enthusiasm for a subject but please do at least have some passion for the subject. Believe me your readers will notice. And, from several signals they've learned to rely on, Google will notice, and reward the site accordingly.

    Good rule of thumb is to take the word count and break the article into chunks of a hundred words with the
    first 100 as an outline; last 100 as a "call to action". Info spread out between these two paras. Simple but it works. :)

    Of course an intro, body and conclusion are important, but presentation is key. Great content that's presented in long unbroken blocks of text will go unread. Pay attention to white space, shorter paragraphs and contrast.

    Male sure to do thorough research before starting an article. That way you have a better idea of your subject and will be able to write better.

    Have a good day!
