How to Write Effectively for the Web


Gina Trapani at Lifehacker talks about her tips on writing on the web. She realises the problem of web has too much contents, so the most effective writing on the web is less words, and more contents. She suggests six tips:

  • Use explicit titles and subject lines.
  • Write a strong lead.
  • Use frequent paragraph breaks.
  • Provide context.
  • Link smartly.
  • Be brief.

I value good and explicit titles. Catchy titles (which relevant to the subject) will give your readers a lot of information. It provides readers with a context for the text. It gives readers what information should they be looking for. It gives an indication to readers if they should be interested on the writing, especially online.
