The other day I received a reply to an advertisement I had posted about my Writing Services for Blogs and Websites. Proposed payment per article was lower than I had anticipated. But this is not the first time I was offered less than I had believed to be the average rate for work the Marketing Services Industry.
World of Blogs. The blogger explained that before any written work I submitted could be posted it would need to be screened on Copyscape.com. This website specializes in evaluating written materials to be posted online to verify that the copy is not plagiarized and does not infringe on anyone’s intellectual property. When searching for this website I came across a similar Siteliner.com, which is also for reviewing written material and scrutinizing it for plagiarism. As well, the specialized tools on this site can scan your website and produces a report, which details the links on your website, informs you if they are functioning correctly or are broken and compiles in a list for your review.
When writing articles for blogs and websites you need to be aware of databases such as Knowem.com, which can help you to manage and secure your brand online. It also as a listing of all of the social media tools that you could ever want to promote your company on their networks page: Knowem.com/websites/all/ . If you are writing about a business and want to know where it has been featured on the internet there is a great website for you to utilize: Socialmention.com. It ranks online listings as positive, negative or neutral and lists how often the entity is mentioned, as well as how many authors have written about the topic of interest.
If you are aspiring to be a professional blogger or copywriter you need to consider what type of blog you will use to showcase your writing. Composing content on your blog or website is a great way to demonstrate your knowledge on a certain subject. Posting blog often will grow your list of followers. Some blogs have IP addresses that make it easy to forward a domain name, while others only offer the option of a great blog title and easy to use functionality for design and widgets functionality. Definitely read online reviews about various blog hosts before creating your blog to determine if there are any restrictions for uploading images, and software add-ons to a page, or in a widget or as a link. Most importantly, research what SEO options the blog hosts provides for the listing and promotion of your blog in some or all search engines.
Also, when considering a title for your blog, first search domain registries to find out is a similar domain name is available. Likely a varied extension such as .info or .org might be available for your desired domain, even if the .com extension is taken. Before purchasing a domain name, thoroughly research the various domain registrars, to get the best price and the highest level of customer service. The lowest price is not always the best deal. Factors such as customer service, technical support and control panel tools for domain forwarding and management are more important than a low price. As well, the ability to transfer your domain and the cost for renewal are other important considerations. Lastly, inquire as to whether the registrar has an auction page to sell your domain and visit it prior to registering your domain.
