This page is applicable only if you are writing Directory Entries for me, please read it, as it will form the basis of any agreement between us! It is also intended to help you format and create text about Directory Entries for our sites and visitors and be clear on my requirements.

We run quite a few different directories, each entry in the directory has to have a description about the target site, we usually do not rely solely on the original submission text and have all these re-written again either by us or external writers so an unbiased review is taken of the target site!

Editors:
Our editors will check your work and will be used on our site only if it is up to a good standard and meets the following criteria and guidelines! Anything less; very strictly will not be used.

If you are writing for us then you can usually send all the texts to us in one word document in the following format:


www.ourdirectory.co.uk /writers/content/ (location of our page)
Title of listing
Your text blah blah

Title of next listing
Your text blah blah

And so on.............. Etc. Etc.

www.ourdirectory.co.uk /writers/content/creation/ (location of our page)
Title of listing
Your text blah blah

Title of next listing
Your text blah blah

And so on..............Etc. Etc.


In one word document!

You visit each site on the list we give you write a short description of the site describing it with any features the site has and/or benefits etc. and that is it! The same for each one on the list.

Our editors will check your work and will be used on our site if it is up to a good standard and meets the following criteria and guidelines!

  1. The texts must be written in good English.
  2. The texts must be spell checked.
  3. The texts must be original, it cannot be plagiarised or copied from elsewhere, also please do not copy the text from the target site this will be checked.
  4. The amount of words for each description is generally between 30 to 100 you must not:
    1. Use excessive words to fatten out the text, or ramble on.
    2. Use too little text as not to appropriately describe the site.
    3. Try not to repeat too often the same set of words i.e. "this is a great site" or "When it comes" etc. etc. only repeat every 5 to 10 listings or better still not repeat at all, but this is near enough impossible but great if you can achieve it.
  5. The amount of words contained in the text is always at the writer's discretion, this provides artistic licence to create an original text, and obviously is dependant on the target site.
  6. The content is not primarily provided for search engines; it is for users to gain some benefit from the description itself, to actually be useful to the reader and inform them of the site before they click the link!

Submission guidelines:
As for the quantity of submissions you should make!
I sometimes (actually; more regularly now) get a lot of submissions per day, all these submissions have to be checked and edited and passed etc. before they are accepted on to the site so although i have two editors at present this can still slow me down across my sites, initially i would say submit as many as you can and we will try and keep up, if we cannot cope our end i will ask you to slow down a little! We would like to get the job done in an efficient but quality controlled manner so that everyone benefits from all our hard work!

Payment guidelines
If you are being paid for your work and this is not a donation to the site itself then; From my side of the fence it is better to do job lots of several articles and pay for say 5-10 or more submissions at a time; this cuts down on any clerical work (i.e. lots of small processed payments) and provides more time for submissions etc. so everyone can do more in other areas! I am like the main drive wheel in the process and if I slow down so does everyone else, it is a pain really but that is the way it is, I delegate quite a lot but there are some jobs I cannot get out of.

From your side of the fence you need to be sure you get paid for what you do for us! For this you need trust, to a certain extent I will be guided by you initially and you let me know what you would be happy with, and eventually when you are sure and happy we will increase the amount of submissions before you get payment, I want you to be happy with the situation and be sure of who you are dealing with! So let me know initially what you would be happy with.

Topics:
If we point you to a category or section of a site, we mean we would like you to write about that section and category only! And sometimes all the pages under it, you need to remember that we may have several writers on one site, we avoid confusion by not making it a free for all and specify sections or categories you should work in! Pages under that section or category are at your discretion and if you see something that could be added or improved upon please do tell us!

Finally:
I already have several writers that have worked with me for several years, it is my hope that we can build a good relationship and trust between us so that you may become part of my/our team, I have fairly stiff but at all times never unreasonable requirements and that is so everyone benefits from our work, not just you or me but people using my sites, this way there is no confusion and we all know what we are doing, at any time should you be unsure about anything please let me know and to that end would like to welcome you on board.

Regards
Paul
