Site Content Is The Ultimate Writing Platform
If you write articles, are a blogger, or a content marketer, this post is for you. Site Content is the ultimate writing and editing platform of Wealthy Affiliate. I don’t know about you, but writing can be hard. I need all the help I can get!
That’s why I love Site Content. It makes writing easier, more enjoyable, and eliminates some of the guesswork!
Site Content has many useful features, making writing a much friendlier process. An efficient writing platform, it simplifies content creation in an organized manner.
As you can see below, Site Content saves your writing statistics and goals. You can set your word-count and article-publishing goals, and you can do this for the goals you set daily, weekly, and monthl. View your “all time” stats to see how close you are to achieving your goals in regards to all these metrics.
Site Content also keeps record of how many of your articles have been indexed in Google, which is pretty exciting.
Use Word Count
The word-count feature of Site Content is my favorite. If you are aiming for a 1,000-word post, article, or review, Site Content lets you know where you’re at in terms of your word count. You can then gauge how much longer your article needs to be. You’ll also be able to see how close you are to meeting your paragraph and heading goals.
You can save your work as you progress, and Site Content will show how many revisions you have saved, which is useful if you need to go back to any of your previous ones for any reason. See below:
How To Use Templates
The ability to use templates is another great feature of Site Content. For instance, I have a template for my basic posts that are 1,000 words in length, contain six paragraphs, and five headings. I use this particular template for most of the posts I write. Your posts don’t have to follow this template exactly, but it does supply the general outline, which saves time.
Other templates include those I use for reviews, which are much longer than my general posts. When I begin writing a review, I select my review template, and just like magic, up it pops. This is a handy feature I use each and every time I write
You can also begin writing from a blank document if you prefer or design your own template for future use.
More Great Features – Buckets and Grids
This feature allows you to organize your posts and articles according to which website you’ll be publishing to, and is a great time-saving tool. If you only have one website, then this may not be applicable. If you have multiple websites, you’ll find this feature useful as you can organize your content according to its corresponding website.
Or create any category you deem relevant, and save your content there. I find that creating content is more enjoyable if I an organizational system in place.
How To Add Images
The image button allows you to upload images directly from your desktop or use existing images you have already imported. There’s also a drag and drop feature that makes adding images quick and easy.
Adding affiliate links in Site Content is a cinch. Press the link button in the editor, and add your target URL. You’ll even have access to your existing content, as seen in the drop down menu, in case you want to link to any of your previous posts. This saves time as you don’t have to go hunting for your desired URL in another window.
Be sure and use keywords in your title and headings, which is necessart for SEO. You’ll need the awesome Jaaxy keyword tool for optimal keyword research.
Site Content has an awesome spelling and grammar checker, along with content structure analysis, and vocabulary enhancement suggestions.
You can also bold or italicize blocks of text, underline headings as I have done throughout this post, and use ordered or an unordered lists that look like this:
- Spelling, punctuation, and grammar checker
- Structure analysis
- Vocabulary enhancement suggestions
- Duplicate content check
This Is The Last Step
When you’ve completed your content, simply choose which website you want it published to, choose a user, indicate whether it’s a post or page, and off it goes to your WordPress editor. Preceding that, however, Site Content will check for duplicate content, and let you know if it detects any problems.
You’ll then view your post in your website editor, and fine tune it from there. Make any necessary changes you feel will improve your post, optimize for SEO, and you’re off to the races!
