By Edited Jul 20, 2016 6 9

Before You Create

Here are a few of the main editorial guidelines for posting content on InfoBarrel.com.

Your content:

1. Should be at least 325 words.  Longer articles tend to attract more readers as they are more comprehensive.
2. Must be original, created or owned by you and must not have been submitted or posted elsewhere on the web.
3. Must not be a sales document, advertisement or any other type of promotional document.
4. Must be written in proper English with correct spelling, grammar and structure.
5. Must not be derogatory, hateful, pornographic or defamatory in any manner.
6. Must not have external links in the first paragraph. Links to other InfoBarrel content is ok.
7. Maximum of 2 self-serving links per article.
8. Content must contain value for the reader and must not be written for the purposes of manipulating search engines.  This means that links in your article must be relevant to your content and cannot be used to promote or increase the search rankings of articles or sites being linked to.

If you follow these simple steps your article should have no problem getting published. For more in depth description and complete list of rules please visit the InfoBarrel Editorial Guidelines.

I am new here and I tried to cop and paste from note pad. It wouldn't let me. It said something about not being able to copy and paste from fire fox because of privacy issues and then sent me to a page that tells me how I can copy and paste. It is very long and complicated and I don't think I understand it. Surely just copying and pasting couldn't be so difficult. Is there an easier way? Should I sign out of fire fox and use another browser? Please help.

If you can use IE then that will work for you for copy and pasting. I haven't encountered Firefox's privacy issue yet, so I'm not able to walk you through it. IE will work just fine for posting articles.

Thank you for the condensed FAQ/Tips. I'll keep these in mind as I start working on writing here at InfoBarrel.

Ctrl-V will let you paste and get by that firefox error.

"Maximum of 2 self-serving links per article." So, what is the definition of a self-serving link? I've had an article denied because I had four hyperlinks in it and none of them were to a webpage that I had any relationship with at all. So exactly what is the definition of a "self-serving" link?

The self serving links also applies to outgoing links. When articles are getting reviewed it is very difficult to determine if the links included are self serving or not.

Another article has been denined because it supposedly has more than two self serving links. It has NO self serving links! Who do I have to email about this?
