Structuring Your Poker Content

After you have written your poker content, its time to upload it onto your site and allow your visitors to get their teeth into it. But before you simply copy and paste or click to upload your article, take a little time to organise it neatly and present it in a manner that you visitors will like. It’s great to have quality content on your site, and it’s even better to present it in a way that will be user friendly and provide your visitors with the information they need quickly. The last thing you want to do is turn your visitors away with some poorly presented work.

The idea of presenting articles and content well on a website will often be forgotten about by webmasters, but it is something that shouldn’t be underestimated. Its all well and good just throwing up a chunk of text onto your site, but its just going to look a little ugly, and it won’t look too appealing for the visitors. It will also make it difficult to read, which is going to be a real shame if your work is of a high quality. People might spend ages on website design, yet neglect structuring their actual content well. So here are a few pointers for you to help organise your content.

Avoid Big Chunks of Text

Big chunks of text can look incredibly daunting to the casual Internet browser, and anything that looks like it will take a long time to read will scare many visitors away. Therefore you should get used to making shorter paragraphs than you might normally, and put breaks in between large amounts of text.

Smaller paragraphs make it easier for the visitor to skim over the content to find what they are looking for, or just to read through quickly. So having short and concise paragraphs will help keep the casual browsers on your site as well as allow everyone else to get access to the information they need comfortably.

Use Bullets and Numbered Lists

Again, visitors like the important information placed in front of them, so the use of bullet points and numbered lists really helps to draw attention to the more important parts of your document. Bullets and numbered lists are great ways to recap on things that have already been discussed and list things that have been or will be talked about in the article.

Bullet points are also good because they always give short and concise information, which is what all web users love to see. So the next time you feel you need to make a few quick points, think about using bullets or numbers; they really are pretty effective. Because as you can see…

  • They catch your attention
  • They provide concise information
  • They help to break up the content
  • And because they are just generally awesome

Use Headings

Headings and sub-headings are a great for splitting up your work into smaller segments for your readers. Having headings means that visitors can more accurately pin-point the information they are looking for, which means that the casual browsers won’t be turned away by the fact that they may have to read through a big article to try and find something that may not even be there. So again, sub-headings make it as easy as possible for readers to find what they are looking for and keep them browsing around for as long as possible.

As you can see in this article, I have used headings for each of the little pointers that I am giving, and they really help to improve the look of the article, whereas a big block of text would look a little unimpressive to say the least. Google also likes sites that use sub-headings for SEO with the use of h2, h3 tags and so on, so the use of headings can only bring positive outcomes.

Bold Important Text

This is something that I have trouble with if I am being honest, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t utilize it to your advantage. If you make an important point or want to really drum something into your reader’s heads, highlight a key point that you are trying to get across in bold. This will draw attention to the point and help to emphasise the fact that what you are saying is important. Your readers will appreciate the fact that you are trying to help them learn or understand something, but just be careful to use it sparsely and not in every other sentence.

Add an Image

Readers love to see images in content, as it helps to break up articles and make the article feel a little more unique. If you feel that no image in necessarily needed within the content to help convey points that you are making, you can still make up a random yet related image to throw up in the corner of your article.

It is surprising how much a simple image can do to make an article look more attractive, so always try and throw one in if possible. Just try and keep it on topic and don’t make it too intrusive, and your readers will have something to look at when they get tired of reading.

Summarize

It’s always good to have a quick summary at the end of an article to reinforce key points you have made, as well as allow the lazy readers to get a general idea of what is going on. Remember that you shouldn’t stop at just writing an article, as the real beauty comes from the way you structure it. It’s your hard work; so don’t waste it by presenting it poorly… show it off!

After all, when Ferrari make a new car with top of the range engineering; they don’t hide it under a box. They give the people something to look at as well as use, so try and do the same!
