A day in the life of an article

Actually, it’s much longer than a day but that will be explained as we go along. This is going to be a huge article with lots of screenshots so you might want to grab your favorite beverage before you start reading. :) Here is an article that’s just been published on our site today about the Las Olas Sunday market. As you can see, it’s in the prime position on our home page.

The article has all the features you could wish for – interesting (and keyword-rich) copy, a gorgeous photograph, an interactive map and social sharing tools so that viewers can share it with their own friends and followers. See below:

You’ll see that it also has related links – ‘you might also like’ – a great feature if you have several articles as the market does. The article also looks totally terrific on a cellphone:
