Do not waste your time or ours by buying article packs that have non-exclusive licenses as we reject those articles. Why do we do this? #1) It makes you look like a fraud because you're putting your name on someone else's works that already may have hundreds or thousands of other authors who already put their name on the exact same works and #2) We do not want more than one copy of any article in our directory.

c.       MUST NOT CONTAIN AFFILIATE PROGRAM LINKS.

While we know there is a variation in what is considered "proper English," we ask that you at least be consistent within your article.

2.       Esoteric Library Editorial Guidelines: (FORMAT)

a.       TITLE: Your Title MUST Be In Upper and Lower Case Letters With The First Letter of Each Major Word Capitalized.

                                                      ii.              It is ok not to capitalize common words such as "a" - "the" - "to" - "for" etc...unless you want to. We accept these either way.

                                                      iii.            Please do not put QUOTES around your entire TITLE. This makes very little sense to us. If you want to use a quote or an apostrophe to call attention to one word or a phrase, this is ok, but the entire TITLE must not have quotes around itself.

                                                     iv.            Do NOT end your TITLE with a period.

                                                      v.            Please do not submit Microsoft Word smart quotes in your title. This includes quotes, apostrophe's, double dashes, and 3 dots in a row. Replace smart quotes with standard quotes/apostrophe's/double dashes/or 3 periods in a row.

                                                     vi.            Refrain from excessive repetitive punctuation in your TITLE. One exclamation "!" or question mark "?" is enough to make a point.

                                                    vii.            We do not allow HTML tags of any kind in your TITLE.

                                                   viii.            We do not allow spaces in your TITLE before you begin your TITLE. In other words, your TITLE should begin with the first word flush to the LEFT of the TITLE submission box.

                                                     ix.            We do not allow your AUTHOR NAME or any WEBSITE URL to be in your TITLE.

                                                       x.            Please do NOT repeat your TITLE in the ARTICLE BODY.

                                                     xi.            Your TITLE must not be keyword stuffed (too many redundant keywords used over and over again), but rather should read as a natural language TITLE that any human could easily appreciate. Do not over-optimize your TITLE please.

                                                    xii.            We do NOT allow titles that contain prescription drug names of any kind.

                                                  xiii.            One (1) word titles will be rejected, a MINIMUM of two (2) unique words are required.

 

b.       TITLE KEYWORD RICHNESS: Your title should be "Keyword Rich." The first 3-4 words of your TITLE determines the success of the article in terms of how much traffic your article will generate...so choose the first 3-4 words wisely.

Example of a Bad Keyword TITLE:

Top 9 Ways of getting results when you Write spells

Example of a Good Keyword TITLE:

Writing Better Spells - 9 Strategies to Help You write spells that yield results

                                                        i.            Your AUTHOR NAME must have a First name and a Last name.

                                                    vii.            We do not allow adjectives or nouns or descriptors to be part of your AUTHOR NAME.

                                                  viii.            You may NOT include your title after your AUTHOR NAME unless you hold a doctorate-level degree (Dr., MD, DDS, PhD, etc.)

                                                      ix.            We do not allow more than ONE author name to have an account. If your article was CO-AUTHORED, then please put the CO-AUTHOR's name in the AUTHOR BIO BOX

d.       ALTERNATE AUTHOR NAMES: We only allow one author membership account per human but you are allowed to have alternate author names under your account (such as a pen-name or if you are an author's assistant or manage articles for multiple different author's).

                                                        i.            ALL of the same rules for the FULL AUTHOR NAME above apply to the ALTERNATE AUTHOR NAMES.

                                                       ii.            The full “For Authors – TERMS OF SERVICE” applies to any ALTERNATE AUTHOR NAMES just as it does to you directly, so be sure you have written permission to submit the articles under any ALTERNATE AUTHOR NAME that you might setup.

                                                      iii.            ATTENTION AFFILIATES: We don't accept articles with affiliate links in them, except as outlined in Section 3 below.

                                                             ii.                  If you sell hard in the ARTICLE BODY by including your URL or product pitch or blatant self-promotion, we will toss your article without notice. The AUTHOR BIO BOX is where you get to pitch yourself or your website address.

§                                 Only HTML TAGS indicated on the submit page ARE ALLOWED in the ARTICLE BODY

iii.                  Please do not submit articles with excessive HARD LINE BREAKS. A hard line break is when you use the HTML <P> or <BR> tag to force a carriage return rather than allowing each line to wrap naturally. We may either reject or convert any articles that are sent in with hard line breaks. It's ok to force a hard line break when you're making a small list of items but it's not ok to arbitrarily force hard line returns on every single line at a certain character width.

iv.                 At the very END of your ARTICLE BODY, please help us by removing any excess vertical spaces and do not include any HTML tags that would create or force the creation of additional vertical spaces after the end of your ARTICLE BODY.

v.                   References : We permit a references section at the bottom of your article, on the following basis :

a.       May contain URLs, provided these URLs are in no way self serving. URLs placed here must be purely for the purpose of referencing essential sources for the article, and for the purposes of properly crediting copyright owners.

WEBSITE ACTIVE LINKS / YOUR URL: We allow a maximum of 2 "Self-Serving" Links/URLs, active or inactive, in your Author Bio only. A "Self-Serving" Link/URL is a link/URL to a website that you own, control or have an interest in.

                                                       i.            We *DO NOT* auto-format URLs.

                                                       ii.            Your links may NOT contain a file to be downloaded of any type.

                                                      iii.            We do not knowingly allow any URLs in any of our articles that are banned by Google or if your website engages in questionable SEO practices -- we may reject your articles.

                                                     iv.            We do not accept articles that have the same ACTIVE link more than once. Do not submit duplicate identical URLs.

                                                     v.            We will not accept articles with links (in Author Bio Box) to adult-oriented websites, including but not limited to websites that include pornography, adult-oriented sexual content.

                                                    vi.            We do not allow links to websites that are under construction. Websites must be active and have content in order for you to link to them from your article. We will reject your article if it contains a link of this nature.

b.       EMAIL 'MAILTO:' LINKS: We highly recommend including a link to your website but do not advocate including a mailto: or email link to your personal or work email account.

c.       ARTICLE SUMMARY: Every article must have a sentence article summary which do not exceed 20 words. The purpose of the ARTICLE SUMMARY is to give an abstract or summary of the benefits that your article delivers.

                                                         i.            If you don't know what to put in your summary, just use the first paragraph of your article.
