Advance Praise for THE YAHOO! STYLE GUIDE
“Yahoo!’s editors have given the rules of the writing road a smart and timely reboot. It’s Strunk and White for the online world.”-- Arianna Huffington, cofounder and editor in chief, The Huffington Post
“Excellent and eminently useful book with many compelling examples of rewrites. While rewriting content for usability will hugely increase a Web site’s business value, the word list alone can save you the cost of the book by eliminating wasted time arguing over proper usage.” -- Jakob Nielsen, Ph.D., principal, Nielsen Norman Group, and author of Eyetracking Web Usability
“Yahoo! confounded the copy editors when it put unbridled excitement in its name. Back in 1996, for the first edition of Wired Style, we decided such idiosyncrasies were part of digital-age style. Today, with The Yahoo! Style Guide, the Web publisher has gone from renegade to rule maker. Its guide is a one-stop shop for those publishing on the Web.” -- Constance Hale, author of Wired Style and Sin and Syntax and editor of sinandsyntax.com
The Yahoo! Style Guide is the work of many Yahoo! contributors, including past and present editors within Yahoo!’s editorial department, led by Chris Barr, senior editorial director.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to polish their understanding of online writing/publishing.
One of the most useful chapters in the book is on copywriting for search engine optimization (SEO), and includes tips about keywords, links, page titles and metatags.
Layout is easy to navigate, chapters are concise and engaging, examples are numerous and directly relevant, and the writing is clear and direct.
This book was recommended in a writer's forum I am participating in and it is everything I was told it would be. A great tool for me, a beginner, in the world of online writing.Published 26 days ago by Nancy Eichhorn
