    I am shooting for 1000 words, unique content that I wrote with a keyword density of 3%. This article will be posted on my blog and spun well then blasted out AMR. What are some best practices for article writing or could someone point me to a link. I searched here but found too much noise and not enough signal if that makes sense

    Once you've finished your best practice document you could spin it and blast it with AMR :)

    Seriously though. Sounds like you are on the right tracks. Just make sure it is good quality and a decent length (not a single paragraph or anything).

    Relevant subheadings etc etc.

    I plan to do that but that does not help me figure out the best way to have the article written. I have ideas from researching but I was curious if there was one thread or site that was more definitive then others.

    thanks for the help

    We've got some guidelines to article creation on our UberToolz site, but it's specific to our UberCubez article system, so I copied out a few creation pointers from the middle for you:

    First, start with your article title/concept/topic/keywords. Let's say 'dieting for weight-loss', for example. Then spend 5-10 minutes brain-storming & researching 10-15 bullet-points about this topic. You can go quite wide in scope here - and use things like nutrition, eating vegetables, exercise, calorie counting, other dieting methods, fad diets, the 'history' of dieting, why we diet, psychological factors, tips, an 'intro' paragraph, an 'outro/conclusions' paragraph etc.

    What you're trying to do first is simply build a quick point list of micro-topics on anything related to the overall topic.

    Then, all you have to do is take each one as a micro-subject and write 3-6 sentences on it; which is an easy job - even for someone with no writing skill. You then end up with a 10-15 paragraph article, covering all the key points, which can be re-structured in any order, and each paragraph isn't dependent on the other.

    There isn't a 'best practices' as such - not for article writing...

    If you're talking sales copywriting then that's different - there are lots of rules for increasing conversion etc. But articles are just 'place-holder' content for your links - so it doesn't particularly matter as long as it's a reasonable read!

    You can check out the full page of guidelines at http://www.ubertoolz.com/UberCubezCreation.html if you're interested...

    I'd worry more about the quality of an article rather than keyword density etc etc. Obviously you want the keyword in the title and a few relevant/related terms in the body but I personally prefer articles that read well as they are more likely to attract natural links etc etc.

    Obviously depends on the project though.

    Thanks. I am pretty new but working my way through. My goal is to get the article written, post on my blog, spin it to play around and get use to best spinner. Take the best one I spin and put it on ezine then take the other ones and blast them with AMR to practice learning AMR. This week will be all about AMR and article writing / spinning / blasting. Once that is done I will move on to teaching myself scrapebox because I understand that is a tool I will probably leave running for harvesting purposes.

    The key thing when using AMR is to make sure you specify categories properly and use a captcha service. Do that and you should be fine.
