The role of a good content writer is to submit a regular article to the team. Do not copy-paste from any site. Have a look to get an idea, but write in your own words(style), and do not spin. Your team needs the best article on the topic that covers the entire scenario required. Always think of yourself as a user, then think about the problem, write the main points in a paper, and do some research, then start writing.

- 3 Important Notes for Role of a good content writer
- 4 Conclusion
Note 1: In blogging, we need to adhere to two basic principles to scale out. The first is to avoid copyright on content and images. Secondly, Grammer plays an important role. To rank or upscale the article on Google, the article needs to be grammatically correct and must be longer and better than the competitor.
Note 2: Don’t rely on tools (like Grammarly, Quetext, etc.) completely. They are just a helping hand to pace up the work, but cannot be used to do the whole work. Creativity, imagination, and coherence depend on your use case. Please try to use brainstorming and other such techniques to amplify and create awesome content. Feel free to reach out to us if you feel difficulty in understanding any task.
Note 3: Please take content writing (in starting) as a learning process rather than as only a source of earning money. An internship will help you in long run in documenting projects, assignments, content writing, and a lot more.
Note 4: If you are writing a technical article, then do not use bombastic/difficult words in it. Write an article that is meaningful and easy to understand for the users.
What do you mean by “spin article?
Even changing a few words or using synonyms in the already existing content/article on the net is termed as a “spin article” and treated as plagiarised content, also It is not good for SEO. The Spin article is ignored by Google bots too. In short, spinning articles is illegal and must not be practiced by any good author!
Role of a good content writer
If any of the content writers follow these rules, he/she can write the best useful article:
Level 1: Check if the article already exists
Always check whether the article is already on the site or not. If yes, please inform by the exact URL to the team.
Two methods to check:
a. By google search-> site: abcdefgha.com “Keyword to search”
Use this syntax to search
b. Use the search option on the site itself.
Now you should know about the Keyword( it is the task provided by your team for which your article ranks for).
Level 2: What is a Keyword?
First, you need to understand What is a Keyword? In short, Keyword is nothing but the search term which you type to search on Google and must have some volume(min monthly search more than 200+). Better to learn it from Yoast for more clarification.
You also need to know about what is an irrelevant keyword. After learning both the basics, move to the next level.
We need to put the keyword in our article very smartly, do not change the nature of the keyword, try to insert it as it is. Read more in Level 3.
Note: The very first line in each topic is the main keyword so use it as it is.
Level 3: Start writing
Always think about the problem as a user, what he/she wants from this post, If there is any problem, then how will he/she fix the issue, etc. Write all the things in a paper, do some research. Read your competitor’s blog, or top search result blog. Also, note down their headings. Then start writing. Parallel perform level 4. If you got a task by your team like this: Task 1: “Role of a good content writer“
” Role of a good content writer“-> This is the main keyword, so it needs to be used as it is, at every 300 to 400 words, there is min one keyword required, and max two-> so for 2000 word article min 5 and max 10 keyword required for good SEO. Three positions are predefined-> Put in the first paragraph, in a Heading, in conclusion.
” Role of a good content writer“-> This is the main topic and main keyword, so we need to focus on this more and at top priority. Put the heading on Google, and You will get two types of suggestions
Every content writer needs to write long articles because of SEO only, short articles do not rank on Google these days. But it does not mean that we add
irrelevant points/words in the article. The best way to increase the length of the article is to add related search queries or the people also asked for.
- FAQ/FQA/People also ask
- Related searches at the bottom
Note down the important ones and useful ones -> this will be our second priority.
Third priority-> Make your own FAQ
Other priority->Write a Meta of 150 to 300 words.
Meta means the main important paragraph, which is explaining about the keyword. It also includes the main keyboard. In simple line why the user read your article, this is the main part, the zest of your article. Also, write a conclusion of 150 to 300 words. But do not repeat the same sentences. This is the biggest blunder done by the content writer.
(Meta is just like your drawing hall room, its shows everything about your psychology and standard of living, Meta means: The very first paragraph for an article, it creates interest in the user to read the whole article, eye-catching, unique, SEO friendly, The meta must be 250-300 words not more than that, always include the keyword in the first paragraph, and one paragraph can not exceed 150 words)
Special Note for tough Keyword:
The task name is always the main keyword, but sometimes it becomes tough to use it as it is, for example, the Keyword is: “why does Instagram keep crashing”. In this case, you need to use it as it is in the first paragraph, the heading (one time), and in the conclusion. And in the rest places, you need to use nouns, adjectives, and verbs only –> So, in our example, “Instagram keep crashing” can be used as the keyword in the rest of the places.
Level 4: own experiments
Once you are assured that your content has enough data, then do your own experiments on your phone and laptop. Take screenshots and add the site logo at the left or right corner, rename the images to the relevant topic. Always compress the image (max 200kb). Use Snagit to make borders and arrows. As we have added the pictures above.

Level 5: Grammar Check
You need to check the grammatical error, and whether you are a master in your writings. Sometimes we forget to a full stop.
You can sign up free for Grammarly. But, Sometimes the AI of the tools suggests the wrong things. So, Don’t rely on any tools completely use your own brain too. Set to American language, our core focus country USA. Note: Some of the SEO tools providers in the market also provide Grammarly pro at a cheap price.
Check for readability: This is one of the essential parts of content writing. For better readability, use transition words. After crossing this Level, you can move to any of the levels, but better to follow stepwise.
Level 6: Plagiarism
You need to check plagiarism, and we prefer quetext. At every login, it provides 2000 words for free, So use this first. If you have a budget, then purchase pro; otherwise, you may buy it for just 2.76 US dollars (Rs200) from this link, but they provide only 2500 words per day. Never copy or write any line from any site. Read from anywhere but write in your own sentence. If the matching sentences are more than 65%, then immediately edit them in your own words.
Level 7: Copyright-free image
Not only plagiarism found in your article but also in your image. So, every blog requires copyright-free images.
Mostly try to take a screenshot of your own phone/laptop wherever possible (Level 4: own experiments)
You can use these sites for images (if needed then only):
Never copy past/download Google images. Send all images in a compressed folder to the team. Always rename the image’s name to relevant content. Also, add them to your content.
Level 8: Best format
Write in a very simple ms word format with Times New Roman Font or Arial font, because they are fast-loading fonts with font-size:
Heading->16, Subheading->14, content->12, bold important words, no extra spaces, follow the punctuation guideline of US English Grammar.
Nowadays, writing on MS Word is an old method, instead of that use Google DOC. Put the very first heading as “title” or “H1 Heading”, then write Meta ( previously known as introduction), after that each main heading will be “H2” and its subheading will be “H3.”
Level 9: Check any good site
Check our site once how the content writers have written Eg: what-phone-do-I-have
Level 10: Duplicate Sentences
Remember: do not repeat the same sentences, and paragraphs in the same as well as do not use them in other new articles too. It is known as a duplicate sentence and is not suitable for SEO.
