There are innumerable articles on how to write for the web.  Much of them are the same old rehash without really getting to the few proven techniques that can make a difference to your writing and get you results.  Writing for the web is very different from writing for the print medium. Writing for the web requires some special abilities. Mastering these abilities is crucial to establish yourself as a well known author or content writer in this challenging medium.

Here are the key tips to make you an expert in writing for the web.

Make your document scan able
With huge amount of knowledge available on the net, people have very little time to read in a leisurely fashion.  People scan a web page rather than read them. Make your document easily readable by using simple and short sentences. A few short sentences make short paragraphs. Short paragraphs are more easily scanned than longer ones.

Use heads, subheads and lists
Start the article with writing a header followed by short sentences. Use as many sub heads as required for different points. Sometimes you may also use a list to highlight all the important points.

The title could be short and work the best. However longer titles have the benefit of latest semantic phrases and are more searchable

Use of Keywords
Being searchable is an important aspect of Web writing. Whatever be the title of your topic, article or web page, use related key words and phrases as often as possible throughout the page. Start with a summary which has a higher density of these keywords followed by a liberal sprinkling of them throughout the copy.

However the use of keywords must be natural and should not be used without making sense just for being searchable.

Provide links for additional information
This is something unique to web writing. Wherever you want to be descriptive or provide more information you can provide a link to the required page. While this makes your writing to the point, the reader has the option to learn more on the subject if he so desires.

Summarize
The best principle to follow in web writing is to "tell what you want to tell. Tell it. Tell what you have told".

Start your writing with a small summary of what you want to say. Then say what you want to in the main content. Finally conclude by giving a summary of what you have said.

Keeping these 5 simple but effective tips to write articles in mind for whatever you want to write for the web will make you more readable, keep your readers happy, lets the search engines find you easily and create your own satisfaction at being able to deliver quality content.
