Tips for writing social news

Interested in being published on the front pages of Digg, Reddit and other social news sites? Here are seven simple tips for writing social news that will help drive more visitors to your site while maintaining integrity and professionalism. 

1.    Write solid headlines
Headlines should be short and concise. Use questions or statements to keep readers wanting more.

2.    Use lists
List-style articles are easy to read and convey a lot of information fast.

3.    Use subheads/formatting
Subheads highlight key elements of the story without forcing the reader to get through the entire work. 

4.    Use images
Images provide visual appeal and give social news sites something to use for a thumbnail.

5.    Focus more on technology
Technology stories are popular on social news sites, so try incorporating a technology element into your news stories. 

6.    Use links
The use of links alerts other webmasters about your content which, in turn, may get them to help promote your article. 

7.    Think of keywords
Repeat key words related to your content. This will help your articles rank well in search engines.
