Web-Page-Structure-for-Content-Writers-media

Technicians control website navigation, headers, footers, and sidebars (asides). But writers control article content which is most important.

Techies think they rule websites but Writers rule the Internet.

The underlying image shows 5 components of typical web page structure:

  2. Header
  3. Article
  4. Sidebar (asides)

Technicians control website navigation, headers, footers, and sidebars (asides). But writers control article content which is most important.

We see that more screen real estate is given to technically-produced content. But the Article content is what visitors want to read.

Smart students might spot that sidebar content is often automatically drawn from other pages. Now that is important on more advanced courses where we learn about internal site links. But for this introductory course we must focus on the Article.
