Apexpranav,

In general you want to have an introduction which touches on the main themes of the article, a body which goes into detail about the main theme or themes and an ending which reiterates what the article was about and its points.

Perhaps you can find some more tips here,

Hope that helps,

 2. How to describe ?
describe it with images, video and unique content where your keyword, variant of your many keyword and some hyperlinks comes but do remember keyword density ..
and

Quote:
 3. How to end ?
and it with proper redirection to your main page like .. if you have any query than visit us on : your domain name and call us on : your contact detail ..

this are best ways to write an article ..

2. You should start writing articles with some advantages or some good message note with your targeted keyword and no more keywords.
3. End with your good author bio where you should referring to provide some links.

Here are some tips:

Section the article off with interesting headlines
Bold key-phrases or "news pieces" (optional)
Write in a charismatic manner, connecting with the reader
Make it around 400-500 words at the least; depending on the topic it can be less.

There is a reason why site builders pay freelancers to write content for them. It is often too much of a hassle to do it. plain and simple.

Have an introduction, a main body and then a conclusion.
Don't use really long paragraphs, use headers and keep it concise and factual. Try to stick to 500 words and tailor it to the product, using humour if possible.

Write a paragraph that will prepare your readers by catching their interest and explaining what your message is.

then find a few points to support your message.

Then fill in the details
and end by recapping the details of your article and reiterating your message.

it will look something like this:

How to Format an Article

Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Here is a simple formula to use to format an article.

Plan Your Article with an Outline
Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Outlines help you organize your thoughts and see the direction of your writing.

Use Headers to Improve Flow and Scannability
Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Studies suggest that most readers won't read your whole article, so make it easier for them to glean the information they will find useful.

Use the Reverse Pyramid Technique
Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Put the broadest and most important points up front and work into the details.

And That's How it's Done
Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. I hope you find my simple formula useful for formatting your articles.

I think it depends on the industry and page. For example, my online writing service has a very specific format for both SEO and conversions. Our "money pages" are structured like this:

i. 300 words of sales pitch
ii. 300 words of benefits to the consumer
iii. 300 words of reasons to use us and our promises
iv. The rest is just all SEO related for talking about the topic/ integrating keywords naturally.

It depends on the use case and industry.

When you are going to write an article, research first, and divide what you have write in many section, and arrange the section based on priority, if one section is ending then the next section should start but it should maintain the follow so that it would maintain concentration on reading if visitors are reading, section should be related to the main theme..

While writing an article you should follow some basic format,
Article should be in following structure,
* Title
* Introduction
* Body
* Conclusion

1. How to start ?

For Example:

I'm glad to present my article in this forum. Now, I'm going to describe about my company called "Roamsoft Technologies".

2. How to describe ?
In description section, you should elaborate the content of the topic.

For Example:

Roamsoft Technologies is a web development company which provides a professional php script for their valuable patrons.

3. How to end ?

Conclusion should be the end of the topic. Your article gets end in conclusion.

For Example:

Thank You

The proper form of writting an article is:

· Be original: Don't copy/paste from other sites or indexed text on internet.
· Be interesting: Try to write articles that interest to the audience and don't lie.
· Size doesn't matter: It's better a 300 words article full of original content than an article of over 3000 words that says nothing interesting.
· Write for humans: Don't forget your audience, writting only for SEO purposes will be a fail result on the article.

There are more factors, but the previous ones will be the most important ones. (For me at least...)

Keep for heading in your mind while writing article. Choose the best headline or Article Title, Introduction of the Article, main body of the article, and conclusion of the article.
