Before contributors can write the content for a new article, they must fill out a description. By categorizing an article like this, readers can find the article more easily. Here is how to do this.
- The title should describe what the article shows the reader. Do not begin the title with the word “How.” Most articles show readers how to do something. If all procedural articles began with “How,” it would be difficult to alphabetize articles. Try “Joining a Conversation” rather than “How to Join a Conversation.”
- The slug is the link to the article. Keep it short. The slug for “Joining a Conversation” might become “joining-conversation.”
- Choose a category based on what this article is meant to do. Does this article show readers how to do something with a Firefox app? Choose
- What is this article relevant to? Does it deal with Firefox? Firefox for iOS? Firefox for Android? Choose all that apply.
- Most articles are related to other articles. Type in the beginning of the name of a related article. The computer will automatically find related articles that you can click.
Warning: You should refrain from adding related documents in new articles that will be pending review. This will result in existing articles linking to unapproved articles because the links are reciprocal.
- Add keywords. Keywords can improve search results by adding terms that are not included in the article's Search result summary.
Note: It is not in your best interest to overload your keyword field with as many relevant keywords as possible. Doing so will lower the amount of points awarded to your keyword, resulting in your article's search ranking diminishing. For more information, see this article.
- In search result summary, type in a sentence or two that explains what the article is about. Try to include keywords in those sentences. This helps search engines find the article.
