What we do not want:
Here’s what we want!
- Length: 1,200 words minimum. If you really can’t fill 1200 words, don’t add fluff, just let it so.

- Plagiarized Content or reformulated from other websites.
- Too many backlinks: You can include a maximum of 2 per post, to YOUR site. That includes the link in your bio.
- External links to sites other than your own are okay for citing images and stats.
- Thin content that demonstrates a lack of depth of knowledge on a topic.
- Fluff: redundant, filler words, uses many words to say little.
- Overly promotional content, like bragging about how good a solution is.
- Previously published or sponsored content.
- Stock images that are not relevant to the content.
- Write purely for search engine
- No affiliate links to Amazon or whatever.
