Mark's February Factual Writing Challenge

Posted in Wikinut>Writing>Tips

This is a fun challenge for Wikinut writers. I am giving you some suggestions to help you, hopefully, increase your earnings. Factual articles are things that have information that people are going to be looking for in the years to come.

How this Challenge Works

I will give you a list of topics, you can "claim" them by leaving a comment at the bottom of the page. It is best if only one person takes on a particular topic.

These are all factual topics, which should get more views, and more money, over time than poetry. I will also tell you the category it should be placed in.

When you have finished your article send me a message with the link so I can add it to this page, thus increasing your SEO!

Tips to Get More Money from your Article

Tag well, use at least 6 tags, 12 is better. If you need help with tags, read this!

Try to have at least 400 words, search engines often ignore short articles as they see these as not having much information.

Use the Title I have given, I have selected strong SEO titles.

If you are planning on giving a Facebook thumbs up, or Google +1 to this article (my article) do so only after your link is added!

If you are planning on using pictures, Wikimedia commons or morguefile.com are best, and try to use the image also as a preview image. People like pages with pictures!

It should go without saying, but write your own article - do not copy.

Want to take part, but don't know much about the titles above. Consequently will claim Best Tourist Attractions in Wellington, New Zealand. I have a feeling I've done this before but will start afresh.

For you folks doing cat or dog, you can do specific breeds too if you like - eg "What is it like to own a Golden Retriever Dog" or it can be dog/cat in general - your choice.

Oh and it may take me a little time to find all the Bible verses because I don't want this to be just my opinion. Instead every point I make must be backed up by scripture, and, right now I really do have to split some wood and gather more.

Roses
Roses are my fave...
they make one brave...
upon the button holes of kings
and
upon the graves of mankind...
roses we all find...
yet do we know...
Roses never die,
in the book’s pages in the shelves of time
they lie
and...
that's why roses never ever die
When you open a page of time...
roses come to your mind ...
the fragrance remains
and
love doesn't stain...
roses, as roses even though dry ...
come alive and forever remain......
roses never die ...
in man’s hearts domain........

Or maybe Top 15? I am thinking, leaving it as top 5 will give a better SEO than top 10 or 15, right?
