​Checklist for Content Editors​

​This checklist was written by OHO Interactive​.

Emphasize Plain Language

  • Strive for brevity and clarity
  • Simple word choices, not bulky phrasing (e.g. “because” not “due to the fact that”)
  • Aim for short sentences and paragraphs without compromising meaning; aim for one concept per sentence and one broader concept per paragraph.
  • For complex or lengthy text such as disclosures, disclaimers, and instructions, write as concisely and clearly as possible, 创建一个层次结构,将此内容与页面上的其他内容区分开来.
  • Avoid jargon, slang, acronyms, pedagogical terms, unnecessarily technical language, and internal-facing process language
  • Maintain no higher than Grade 10 readability level
  • 使用海明威之类的工具来评估你的内容的可读性
  • Avoid hackneyed phrases and idioms (“Get your ducks in a row”; “Bang for your buck”; “Get the ball rolling”) - readers from other cultures may not be familiar with their meaning
  • Avoid unnecessary use of superlatives and adjectives (e.g. 我们的示范研究设施)以及夸张或未经证实的主张(如.g. 我们有最成功的学生),这可能会拖累你的语言. Instead, 让这些特征的特性用事实来说明自己, data, or rich, descriptive imagery.
  • Avoid repetition. 它往往会模糊你的观点,而不是强化它
  • 在你的文章中使用一致的术语来加强理解

Create Content Inclusively

  • Avoid directional language (e.g. 当提到页面内容时,请阅读下面的内容(参见上面的菜单)
  • Page layout should make content references intuitive
  • 这些引用与使用屏幕阅读器或其他阅读网页的替代方法的个人无关
  • 由于响应式设计,在一个上下文中的“右边”可能在另一个上下文中的“下面”
  • 始终使用所有文本的图像,以允许盲人使用“说话”的浏览器
  • 作为慢速连接的用户,要从图片内容中收集意义
  • Describe what is happening in the image (e.g. “Students studying in a library”)
  • Alt文本具有可搜索的好处,增强了SEO
  • 不要仅仅依靠视觉或音频交流(图像, shape, size, (声音)来传达对理解内容至关重要的信息.
  • Avoid PDFs where possible.
  • HTML标头标签通过组织、确定优先级和标记内容来帮助创建层次结构. 使用清晰、描述性语言的标题来分割文本,引导读者浏览页面.

Link Efficiently

  • Make links descriptive and actionable (e.g. "Apply now"; "View event calendar”)
  • “点击这里”这个词对搜索引擎或用户来说没有价值
  • 在链接文本中使用关键字,只要它们不影响意思或清晰度
  • 如果链接指向非html页面,则指出文档类型.g. Read the manual [PDF])
  • 不要用不必要的超链接来混淆文本,因为它们会分散用户的注意力
  • 正文中的链接不应该复制页面导航

Consider Web Page Structure


  • Use simple URL structures; 3-5 words
  • 使用描述性的、相关的关键字,为搜索引擎和用户提供上下文
  • Use hyphens instead of underscores

Meta description

  • 描述在您的页面上找到的内容的唯一副本
  • Maximum of 150-160 characters
  • 强大的元描述可以提高搜索引擎结果页面(serp)的流量
  • Echo keywords used in the title; balance keywords with compelling, 描述性语言,使人类和机器都能理解信息
  • Avoid quotes; stick to alpha-numeric characters

Page Title

  • Defines title of a web document; should be unique with a consistent format site-wide
  • Less than 70 characters
  • 显示在谷歌搜索结果和浏览器标题栏中(也是书签的默认文本)
  • Use meaningful words; avoid vague acronyms with no first reference or context (e.g. “MCM”(即当代音乐大师)可能会疏远或混淆用户和搜索引擎, 除非缩略语是目标受众普遍理解的.g. MBA)
  • Echo keywords used in meta description. Balance use of keywords with compelling, 描述性语言,使人类和机器都能理解信息
  • 将关键字放在标题的前面(主要关键字-次要关键字|品牌名称)
