5 Effective Web Writing Tips
Writing for the web is very different from writing for the print medium. Writing for the web requires some special abilities. Mastering these abilities is crucial to establish yourself as a well known author or content writer in this challenging medium.
Here are a few key tips to make you an expert in writing for the web.
Make your document scan able
People scan a web page rather than read them. Make your document easily readable by using simple and short sentences. A few short sentences make short paragraphs. Short paragraphs are more easily scanned than longer ones.
Use heads, subheads and lists
Start the writing with a header followed by short sentences. Use as many sub heads as required for different points. Sometimes you may also use a list to highlight all the important points.
The title could be short and work the best. However longer titles can have keywords and are more searchable
Use of Keywords
Being searchable is an important aspect of Web writing. Whatever be the title of your topic, article or web page, use related key words as often as possible throughout the page. Start with a summary which has a higher density of these keywords followed by a liberal sprinkling of them throughout the copy.
However the use of keywords must be natural and should not be used without making sense just for being searchable.
Provide links for additional information
This is something unique to web writing. Wherever you want to be descriptive or provide more information you can provide a link to the required page. While this makes your writing to the point, the reader has the option to learn more on the subject if he so desires.
The best principle to follow in web writing is tell what you want to tell. Tell it. Tell what you have told.
Start your writing with a small summary of what you want to say. Then say what you want to in the main content. Finally conclude by giving a summary of what you have said.
Keeping these key techniques in mind for whatever you want to write for the web will make you more readable, keep your readers happy, search engines finding you easily and your own satisfaction at being able to deliver quality content.

Writing Query Letters that Count -- Close the Deal with Your First Letter!
Your query letter can be a deal maker or a deal breaker. So, if your query letter just lies there, you've killed the sale immediately or your story or novel immediately. If you want that story -- your baby -- to be read, reach out of that query letter, grab the publisher, editor or literary agent by the neck and say, "Hey, you absolutely have to have this story!"Query letters that begin with "Hello, My name is. . ." have as much chance of selling as vacation trips to Baghdad. Remember, your query is like a résumé's cover letter, and if you're in a competitive industry, that cover will sell you far more than the resume will. So, you have to grab the reader with your first sentence. To do this, make him believe that he desperately needs what you're selling. Following are a few tips on how to do it.
How to Pitch a Story
Ever wonder why we refer to convincing an editor a story is worthy by "pitching a story?" I have. I'm a baseball enthusiast, and it makes a lot of sense to me. When the editor is at bat with you, he or she has a few swings to make before making a connection ? through the story idea (ball) that could end up being a base hit or a home run. Naturally, everyone wants to hit a home run when they go to bat with an editor. Sometimes publicists and writers do have to walk to first base for the story assignment. Here are some helpful tips on how to pitch a story to an editor ? and how to at least hit a single, double, or triple ? if not a home run on occasion.
