How can I remove my confusion?

Hello,

I have posted here many times and learned more and more things from the replies given in my posts. I am very thankful to you.

My today's approach is to ask something about content or writing content. Actually, I am not a professional content writer but still trying to write good content. I think, in case of writing content word choice and sentence structure must be of high quality.

Here, I would like to know that do the quality words or sentence always mean hardy words? If it is, so, how can my general readers be able to understand my content clearly if I always use hardy words?

Thanks in advance

    I can't even understand your question much less content you may put on a site. What exactly is a "hardy" word? I've never heard that term.

    I will take a wild guess and assume that you meant complicated words.

    Complicated words and sentences don't make a text high-quality. In fact, high-quality text should be easy to understand, grammatically correct and coherent.

      Yes, I meant complicated words.
      Which kind of words should I use? Formal or Informal. Which has the best priority and will make my content standard?

    My point in my reply is that you have to know your audience and act accordingly. I've never heard of "hardy words" even though I'm a native English speaker. I could guess what it meant but it kind of made the whole post confusing to an extent.

    So, before you write anything, know your audience. Know what level they are on. Know what they want. Speak in their terms and common language. Don't try to get sophisticated with big words because it can cause some people to believe they are being played - it's a game or an act and so they may mistrust your product or service.

    Rule #1 is... content must be written for human consumption, which means
    your visitor should grasp what your site is all about on their first glance and
    to have their curiosity to be aroused sufficient enough to give you at least
    a chance by sticking long enough to learn what you have to offer.

    Rule #2 is... only after you are going to make sure your visitors won't mind
    to tolerate your SEO inspirations and your enthusiasm to impress Algo,
    at that point you can start working on your endless fight for spot in Top 10

    The hardiest words would be those that would reflect purpose of your site
    making sure words you are using belong where they are placed and not just
    glued here and there like some Christmas tree shining decorations while
    at the same time provide Algo with enough info about your site's place in SERP.

    Not trying to be tough on you, but if that's the level of your English then you should seriously consider outsourcing your content creation.

  • You don't have to use "hardy" words. Your content should be direct to the point and be easy to understand. I suggest reading popular blogs and learn from the tone their writers use. Practice, practice and practice some more. It wouldn't hurt to polish your grammar at this point.

      I've read some of the English articles where easy words have mostly been used.
      Sometimes I copy something from those articles which seem to be easy to me like words, sentences etc. Here, I can realize that my readers also find those type of articles which seem to be easy to read and understand.

    Hardy mean complicated word. without knowing good English you can not build your skill as a content writer.Content writing and being a content writer is not easy. It requires a lot of practice before you can claim to be a successful content writer. I personally feel that anything without content is like a car without a driver. If there is no driver, then the car cannot be driven in the right direction I suggest you for reading English newspaper, story book,synonym of content, social blogs.

      I have read some English contents and followed their word choice. Some of the contents seem to be well understood to me and some contents seem to be very hard. I think that many readers will experience same as me.
      I think it is much better to choose such words which will be appreciable to all kind of readers.

    Simple Language will do well than the complicated words as majority of people will be understanding simple languages.

    I think quality may be defined of uniqueness of your writing.
    The more rare words you use - the better.
    But understanding still have to be easy.
    Do not use too many hard and complex words.
