Many writers who write for Textbroker (http://www.textbroker.com/) find it difficult to improve their articles’ rating. This is understandable because Textbroker’s editors rate writers’ work on a wide variety of things including the articles grammar, punctuation and clarity.
However, writers who want to improve their Textbroker rating can do several things that can dramatically improve their quality rating. The best part about doing these things is that they are easy to implement into their daily writing routines.
To see what I mean, here are five things that you can do to improve your Textbroker quality rating that I use everyday while writing for Textbroker:
1) Create an outline for every article you write for Textbroker.
I went from a 3-star rating to a 4-star rating once I started creating outlines for all of my Textbroker articles. This seemed to happen because the outlines helped me to improve my articles’ organization and clarity.
Perhaps creating an outline will help you too? Here are two websites which have helped me create better outlines for my Textbroker articles:
–The University of Purdue’s OWL online writing lab has a great resource that can help writers create killer outlines. Check it out at http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/544/01/.
–If you REALLY want to get technical, Capital Community College’s hints on outlines can help you everything you’ve wanted to know. They are located at http://www.ccc.commnet.edu/mla/outlines.shtml.
2) Use your Spell Check early and often.
Nothing kills your Textbroker rating like bad spelling! As a result, take about five minutes to spell-check your work to ensure that you’ve spelled most of your article’s words correctly. Furthermore, re-use your spell check each time you edit your work. It can make a really big difference between a 2-star rating and a 3-star rating.
3) Be especially careful how you use compound adjectives and homonyms.
Even though I have a 4-star Textbroker rating, I still sometimes have trouble using compound adjectives and homonyms such as “Its” and “It’s.” Furthermore, many Textbroker editors have reported that using compound adjectives and homonyms well could make the difference between a 4-star rating and a 5-star rating. As a result, I encourage you to take time to review how to use compound adjectives and homonyms in your own work. Here is one website that I refer to frequently that has helped me use compound adjectives and homonyms more successfully: http://www.tolearnenglish.com/.
4) Edit! Edit! And edit some more!
I’ll be the first to admit that I can’t stand editing my work. It seems like it’s a tedious task that has no merits. However, if you take the time to edit your work well, you will notice an increase in your Textbroker rating in no time. This is true because the more you edit your work, the more likely you will catch the types of typos that can affect your Textbroker rating. As a result, try to take as much time as possible to edit your Textbroker articles. You might just see your Textbroker rating go up!
Here is a website that includes tips on how to edit your work more efficiently: http://www.angelfire.com/wi/writingprocess/editing.html. See if the tips located there can help you improve your Textbroker rating.
5) Finally, take the time to find topics that you feel comfortable writing about.
One great way to improve your Textbroker rating is to only write about topics that you feel comfortable writing about. This has helped me improve my own Textbroker rating because it has made easier for me to write articles without having to worry about having the confidence I need to finish a project.
As you can see, there are many easy ways in which you can improve your Textbroker rating! Good luck writing for Textbroker!
