Does Your Content Help Your Readers?

When writing an article you must always keep in mind that you are writing for your readers and not for search engines. When you write articles you should always give something that is relevant to your reader’s interest and your title.

Are Your Grammar and Punctuation are Correct?

When you finish writing your article always do revision for your grammar or punctuation or any other minor mistakes.

Then they will definitely think that you are not fit to teach or provide knowledge to them.
