Target Audience

  • Primary Audience: Lawyers and legal professionals seeking domain knowledge.

Language and Style

  • Language: Your content should be in English, accessible to a 10th-grade student. Use clear, concise language.
  • Sentence Structure: Opt for shorter sentences and paragraphs to enhance readability.
  • Headings: Use multiple headings (H2) and subheadings (H3, H4, etc.) to structure your article, making it easy to navigate.

Content Originality and Value

  • Originality: Ensure all content is original, offering fresh perspectives or insights not readily available elsewhere.
  • Unique Proposition: Each article should include at least one unique feature (e.g., step-by-step instructions, screenshots, statistics) that adds more value than existing content on the web.
  • User Intent: Focus on the user’s intent. Aim to answer all potential questions a reader may have about the topic.

Content Standards and SEO

  • Evergreen Content: Focus on creating evergreen content that remains relevant over time.
  • SEO Practices: While SEO is important, we encourage a general understanding rather than in-depth technicalities. Use keywords naturally.

Understanding Headings

  • H2 (Heading 2): Use for main section titles.
  • H3, H4, etc.: Use for sub-sections within each H2 section, helping break down information into digestible chunks.

Thoroughness and FAQs
