InfoBarrel May 2013 Editorial Calendar

By Edited Jun 2, 2015 13 2

If you would like to submit an article on one of the following topics to be considered as a piece of featured content on the front page of InfoBarrel, please click here. (Submissions will open April 1st, 2013)

To try and make the best possible experience for readers, we may edit any article that is submitted to the editorial calendar.  Common edits will be to fix punctuation, spelling and spacing, or to add headings or pictures.

Tips to get Featured

Amazon Modules **NEW**

Don't add Amazon modules for the sake of adding them.  Make sure they are extremely related, and place them where appropriate. Having a number of random related products at the end of your article makes it look less appealing and will probably prevent you from being featured.

Include Pictures

Include high quality pictures in your article.  You can always use Wikipedia (creative common images) and or Morguefile to get royalty free pictures, just make sure you properly credit them.  Without pictures in your article, the chances of getting featured are significantly lower.

Citations

While citations are not required, we will lean more towards articles with citations where applicable.  This improves article credibility

Attractive Formatting

When appropriate use headings, and break your article up into digestible chunks.  If you are writing a top list, include matching widths to make everything look uniform. 

Add Maps

Maps are our latest article element and are a great way to illustrate where certain landmarks can be located and are especially beneficial when describing locations.

Entertaining/Resourceful

Your article should provide value to the end user. At the end of the day, try to make the article entertaining to read while being as resourceful as possible
