Qualities Of A Good Writer

When it comes to writing quality content, a good writer must possess certain attributes and that’s the basis for our discussion today. Do you have what it takes to be a good writer? What do you understand about building out a site with quality and helpful content?

Do you know what it takes to create quality and engaging content for higher rankings? Let’s discuss this topic in depth as well as other facts related to writing quality content.

What are qualities of a good writer? What are those attributes a writer must possess in order to get ranks? Content/writing quality is one of the top major factors in the hierarchy of Google’s ranking factors . Below are some of the qualities:

  • A good writer must be grammatically sound. He must apply the correct use of grammar while writing content or, perhaps, preparing for indexing and ranking. This includes the use of tenses and appropriate construction of English sentences.
  • A good writer must make proper use of punctuation marks while creating content. The punctuation marks include the use of full-stop, comma, inverted comma, apostrophe, exclamation mark, question mark, colon, semi-colon and others. Google checks the correct use of punctuation marks while deciding on ranking your site. This and other parameters are considered altogether for ranking your site.
  • A good writer must be mistake-conscious while creating content. It’s usual with humans to make grammatical mistakes or errors in the course of writing and this can adversely affect the overall ranking assessment of your site in the sight of Google and other major search engines. This too determines a lot when it comes to assessing a good writer.

Quality Content Writing Services

What are quality writing services? How can you leverage such services to maximize revenue on your site? What are the benefits of delivering quality writing services on your site? The logic about content writing is that it’s the second mentioned factor in the hierarchy of Google’s ranking factors.

A lot of people need website content and can pay hundreds of dollars to hire a writer to write for them. When they see the expertise they expected in you, you stand to appear like a professional freelancer to them.

If you would find it more profitable to write for yourself, then you would be said to have a great vision towards becoming a professional online marketer.

When you check out for the rates at content marketplaces, you will find out that a thousand word article is worth much more than $40. Leveraging your writing skills can create you multiple streams of income while writing on your own blog.

Writing for other sites is just like neglecting your own business and focusing on another man’s business. Using your writing skills for other bloggers amounts to building other people’s business at the expense of yours with little or no payments at all.

You won’t be happy for reasons stated below if you are not leveraging your writing potentials to earn through your own blog:

  • You are not the owner of the business, so you may be driven out of the system anytime the owner deems fit.
  • You don’t have your own freedom in the work you are doing.
  • There is no job satisfaction in most cases.
  • You will not be making enough money.
  • There is no future reward for the daily effort you are putting in to promote other people’s business.
  • You only earn little or no payments from the writing jobs you do.

Aside from earning as a freelance writer, writing for websites, you may want to consider leveraging some freelance writing platforms that connect you (The Blog Owner) to forum posters (Writers).

Because Google ranks a site with higher visitor engagement through blog commenting, such platforms become high potentials  for blog owners to connect and pay writers in exchange for blog comments . With this, ranking is guaranteed and making money becomes a fun.

How To Write Original Content

Writing unique content is of paramount importance to the success of your brand and once you have chosen a niche that really flows with your expertise, your brand continues to grow geometrically.

Invariably, you may copy your written articles and paste in a plagiarism checker tool in order to see if the articles are genuine or plagiarized. An overall percentage greater than 96% would be considered unique and original and that’s good for SEO.

Plagiarized articles don’t get ranked in Google and other search engines… This is because Google has some special algorithms for detecting plagiarized content in any site.

They have scored zero in total. Even if Google wouldn’t be able to detect that they used those tools containing spamming elements on any particular review, more complex machines could be used to detect them.

The truth about using an article re-writer or spinner tool is that those tools contain spamming elements and are easily detected by search engines.

So, using such tools brings no success both in the short-run and in the long-run and it’s obvious that the developers are critically poor in the knowledge of SEO. Another fact is that the tools make lots of grammatical mistakes and errors which are even difficult for anyone to rectify.

Find Content Writers

Finding quality content writers is for those who have created a niche website, but didn’t have sufficient time for writing content on their websites. Despite the serious need for building out a site with engaging content, there are hundreds of competent and experienced writers who don’t bother creating their own personal websites, but simply get very busy writing at a very high level for article marketplaces and forum posting platforms.

Thus, content writers are usually found at article marketplaces whereby writers submit articles and have them listed for sale, freelance writing platforms whereby writing projects are regularly forwarded to writers, and forum posting platforms whereby writers make money making fun. Instead of deciding to go back to article re-writer and spinner tools, it would be great to buy fresh content in order to keep up with your site publishing frequency, though there’s nothing so sweet like having your whole time with your online business.

What Is The Purpose Of A Content Management System?

Aside from the common content marketplaces, freelance writing and forum posting platforms, there are some other writing sites referred to as Content Management Systems (CMS). These are writing sites that offer writing services in a different way. They don’t sell articles, but simply allow writers to register at their sites and share a percentage of the revenue that comes in from advertisers’ ads. Examples of such sites are YouTube, HubPages, EHow, Associated content as well as Triond.

The content management system requires high quality writing stuff from writers, and getting qualified to write for such a system may sometimes be tedious especially for those writers who are just starting out with the system. Despite all, you won’t get financial freedom from those systems unless you start writing for yourself on your own website. Learn how you can set up your own website free in just few clicks.

Above all, the content management system is preferred by so many writers to leverage their writing skills for earning online revenue. In as much as the systems earn revenue from advertisements, they share percentages with writers on all of the posts published by them. With all these, you will only be sharing revenue, not earning directly. You are not in control of cash. You should rather consider creating your own website and write for yourself.

  1. Hi there,

    This is a great post with a lot of knowledge I needed in my career. I write in different websites, freelance and writing dedicated websites, and there is one thing that has been nagging my mind since each time I write for a new client.

    They complain about my skills. After some time, I learn what they want and write content they appreciate for them. Now, am I a great writer or not if I write my own content?

    How do I know what great content is all about since every one prefers their own content written in their own styles? I do not know anymore what industry standard is.

    1. Thanks for your valuable thought, Dave! Kudos for visiting and reading my blog post! Much appreciated! I have been a freelance writer too for several years but stopped freelancing when I started this blog. I saw every good reason to write for myself more than writing for other people.

      Once you have figured out a working style for writing your blog posts, no one will ever complain or condemn you for using that writing style. It’s better to write for yourself than writing for others.

      The best piece of advice I would love to give is that you should stop writing for those clients. They won’t let you spend enough time building out your own site. Maybe you don’t know that you have a lot to do with the building of your own site in the area of content writing and audience engagement. Thanks for visiting!

      Wish you much success,

  2. Hello Israel,

    Thanks for your post! You are right when you say that content is king. If you want to start an online business and you want to have high rankings and prosper, you must commit to publishing new quality content on a regular basis and share it to the world. Anyway, thanks once again for your help!

  3. Hello Israel

    Thank you so much for sharing this post! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and found very informative and educative. As a fellow blogger, I found the points you raised to be spot on and give us some important guidelines to follow when we write our content.

    I am a newbie in blogging and there is so much I need to learn and explore. I find that the more I write, the better I become at it though this can be quite time-consuming to get it right, from researching the topic, laying out the outline, the actual writing, sorting out the grammar and spell checking through applying SEO strategies to publishing. I do enjoy writing and have been discovering new skills I thought I never had.

    I need to improve on the number of words I have to write and ranking. I managed just below 1800 words with my latest posts. I think I will struggle with 3000 words mark as recommended. It’s hard but I guess is not impossible If you can apply yourself correctly and find enough good quality content to write.

    Looking forward to reading more of your posts and learn from your experience.

    Best wishes
    Rabia

    1. Kudos to you, Rabia, for reading my post and thanks for finding it very informative and educative! I know there are useful tips in that post and I love implementing those practicable tips into blogging because I believe so much in them too.

      Kudos for noting those important points especially when it comes to writing great website content! As you continue writing, you discover a lot of skills and potentials in your writing more and more which you never thought you actually have at all.

      The length of each of the articles you create on your site is invariably crucial to the ranking of your site. Data results from SERPs show that a length of 1890+ words is required by search engines for you to get a first Page Rank using content alone which is quite cumbersome.

  4. During my journey working online, I have come to learn the hard way what you have neatly discussed within your article, about writing for yourself and not for others. What we have to understand is that when we write for others, they pay us only one time for all our effort and then they go on monetizing it for their own benefit.

    When you write for yourself, you are able to monetize your article for yourself. And instead of making money one time off, you make money over and over again. That’s the beauty of it!

    1. Thanks for your contribution, Reyhana! I’ve been a freelance writer writing for blog/forum owners for so long before I came across Wealthy Affiliate. You can imagine how tedious and frustrating it would be for someone to work 5-6 hours a day writing only to make $3-$5 and nothing more.

      It was in the process that a blog owner mentioned and wrote a review about Wealthy Affiliate. For the first 2 months, I didn’t give it any consideration to join or try it out at all. But in a search, I came across a post whereby someone spoke about WA again in a more interesting way. This was the very person that motivated me to join the network at last.

      Since I joined and started building out my site, I’ve always seen the dividends of writing for myself and will never go back into slavery with those freelance writing platforms.

      Wish you much success,

  5. Hi Israel,

    Great article on the qualities of a good writer! You’ve really hit the nail on the head. As they say and you’ve mentioned in your post, “Content Is King”.

    Personally, I enjoy writing content for my website. For me, it gives me a way to share what I’ve learned and even sometimes what I am thinking with whoever might be interested. It’s a way to share information and experience, it’s pretty darn fun.

    The challenge I run into is finding the time to create ongoing content for my website. I’ve worked with a few content writers I’ve connected with on Fiverr and that’s gone fairly well. I have to change some of it to make it more of my voice but they generally do a solid job.

    Cheers,
    Mat A.

    1. Thanks for contributing your own quotas, Mat A! Kudos for reading the post and fleshing out quality points therefrom! Content is king in the sense that it prepares your site and gets it fully ready for visitors whenever they come on visits.

      In the hierarchy of Google’s ranking factors, content is the second mentioned factor and writing engaging content can make your site skyrocket to first page rankings in search results.

      You must make schedules for building out your site with quality and engaging content, though hiring writers is a good idea if you don’t have much time for that yet and that’s way better than using article spinning tools which contain lots of spamming elements.

  6. Hi there, really interesting! It’s good to be refreshed from time to time about what it takes to be a good writer. It made me realize that I should go over my use of correct punctuation and grammar. I do the best I can and proof read at least 3 times before I publish but sometimes I find it difficult to know exactly where to put colons and especially semi-colons. I’m going to brush up on these skills thanks to you. I think it may be time to go over all my old work and revamp it.

    You are right, building your own online business rather than building somebody else’s is definitely preferable…to me anyway. And the best platform I know of is Wealthy Affiliate. The training is brilliant and you get plenty of help for those times when you get stuck but it is well worth the effort in the long run

    1. Hello Stefanie,

      Yes, you need to be refreshed at constant intervals as that would help in bringing the best out of you when it comes to getting ready to become a good writer. The use of punctuation marks coupled with the right use of English grammar and paragraphs will do your content a lot of good in the readability and ranking aspect.

      Proofreading your content up to three times or more before publishing your post is greatly instrumental to writing a great website content and, therefore, instrumental to getting first page rankings in due time. This is worth giving attention in order to become successful as soon as possible. You can develop further in learning punctuation marks and grammar generally as these are instrumental to your blogging success.

      It wouldn’t be good enough to consider building other people’s blogs through content writing at the expense of your own blogging success except for being reciprocity and outreach wise. You can learn further by visiting Blogging From Paradise.

  7. I love the post. It is not easy to become a great writer and it is not something that everyone is capable of doing. Could you put up a post specifically about these content writers? Thanks for the great info and kudos to you for the tips put across. Keep up the great work.

    1. Becoming a good writer is not an easy-to-achieve task and it’s not what you can figure out perfectly in a day unless you follow certain strategies and adhere strictly to tips obtained from authoritative bloggers. Writing is a skill every internet entrepreneur needs to acquire as content is king when it comes to SEO. Content writing is what gradually and naturally assigns ranks to your site over time.

      You need to start building your writing skills as this will help you a lot in building out a trusted and highly ranked site. Putting up a post specifically for content writers wouldn’t be a challenge in any way as I am working already on this.

  8. Thanks for this great information on your article! It helps me a lot because I would like to be a writer someday. One of my main goals this year is to be a great writer and this article has given me a great insight into becoming a great writer. Thanks for the great work!

    1. You need to be a good writer in order to build out your site. Getting first page rankings requires a lot of content and being a good writer would be an added advantage. You will be writing articles based on your niche and your grammar must be very okay to really boost rankings.

      In my own research, I noticed that 2000-3000 word articles gain more grounds on the first page than articles of lengths below 2000 words. So, you must be passionate about writing in order to make your way up in building out your site for first page rankings. What is worth doing at all is worth doing well.

  9. Thanks for this informative article! It is truly an art form I think to becoming a great writer and it’s something I personally aspire to. And hopefully, practice makes perfect!

    The one thing I’m considering is getting some help with writing which you allude to. What would you say the best place to find quality writers is? I have tried once but struggled to find a half decent one.

    1. It’s vital to be a good writer when it comes to managing and building a website. So many parameters are checked when ranking your content and the overall website. These parameters include the use of English grammar, use of punctuation marks such as full-stop, comma, question mark and others.

      It’s great using the freelance writing platforms or, perhaps, using the forum posting platforms to get quality writers to write content for you. As a matter of facts, we have a team of writers in our network here that can write you quality and engaging content from time to time and on any niche. Just reply with a comment by filling out the form below and demand for the services of our devoted and highly-skilled writers.
