General Guidelines

The most important team site metric at this stage is subscription signups. How do you drive more subscription signups?

  • Plus Content is the key to driving new subscriptions. Always think about ways to make free content plus content. For example: instead of posting quotes from a press conference and making it free, post the quotes with some analysis. If there is breaking news that is free, follow it up with a plus article with your analysis. The only team site posts that should be free is breaking news. Everything else should be “plus”. Don’t over think it. (excluding KSR)
  • If you post a breaking news article that is free it must have 450 words within an hour of posting. It’s ok to immediately post with less than 450 words, however, you must update within one hour of posting. Free articles that have less than 450 words have zero value because Google won’t pick it up and it won’t do well on Facebook. It’s worth zero.
  • Free (breaking news) articles must have a green Yoast SEO light within one hour of posting. We have been lenient on this as everyone has been getting up to speed. We will be looking at this much more closely and will be required moving forward.
  • Featured photos must be 1200×630
  • Headlines should include full names “Jim Harbaugh” not “Harbaugh”… Use the team name whenever possible “Ohio State” “Auburn” “Clemson”, etc..
  • All photos must have attribution.
  • Always select the most specific primary category
