These texts should be about trending topics and be very interesting and exciting to read. Having a ‘trending’ topic means that the article should be about current news and interesting for a certain target audience, e.g. the latest development of e-commerce, political affairs, the buzz about new products on the market, the state of the art of technology. Your research should be up to date on specific issues and the writing should not be limited to facts that are common knowledge, in other words, general facts that can also be found simply by visiting Wikipedia. Premium SEO articles must have a journalistic tone and an elaborate wording style. Stylistically, this means that they should include for example metaphors, be intertextual and/ or have a certain tone (objective, witty with word play, formal business language, etc.).
You do not necessarily have to cite your sources in the article itself but you should keep track of the sources of your information and be ready to state where you found your information should it be deemed necessary.
Tip: know your target language’s most relevant newspapers, magazines, e-zines and online news sites. Also the most reliable works/ websites of reference for language related questions; your written language should be impeccable.
Time management (research/ writing ratio)
You should spend approximately 50% of your time researching your topic and 50% on the writing itself.
