GENERAL REQUIREMENTS TO SUBMIT ARTICLES TO GETPREQUALIFIED
To have your article accepted, it must meet the following conditions:

MUST BE AN ORIGINAL ARTICLE OF WHICH YOU RETAIN THE COPYRIGHT

All articles submitted to GetPreQualified.com must be original content that was written by you, your coauthor, or client. In short, you must retain 100% of the copyrights on any article you submit for publishing throughout the GPQ-ADN. Any articles that have been identified as having been copied, in whole or in part, from another person’s original content will be immediately rejected and/or deleted and the author submitting such content will be ignored from future submissions.

UNCONDITIONAL PERMISSION to PUBLISH

Any and all articles you submit to GetPreQualified.com are granted unconditional permission to publishing and reproduction. Submission of an article also grants unconditional permission to feature your article within the GPQ-ADN and any ‘run-of-network’ GetPreQualified might be associated with currently or in the future. GetPreQualified also retains the right to publish a summary of your article on various RSS blog and supporting feeds. GetPreQualified may also use your article in any newsletters, current or future, that it might deem informative or educational for a particular reader base. In doing so, your information, bio data and/or links will remain as part of the original submission unless specifically requested that it be removed or modified.

Articles MUST BE INFORMATIVE

It is the goal of GetPreQualified to offer for public consumption your unique expertise. Tips, case studies, strategies, techniques, analysis, opinions – anything that might make your presentation of a particular process or service of educational value to our readers. Any new way of presenting information on a specific topic vs. some superficial summary is always the best approach. GetPreQualified retains the right to reject any submission not in line with our standards.

PROTECTIONS OF COPYRIGHT

United States Law states that natural copyright is automatically granted at the moment of publication. “Publication” is not just specific to printed material and has clearly extended to the digital domain. Any article that is posted within the GetPreQualified domain retains a natural copyright unless otherwise granted to an author as noted within the posting. GetPreQualified freely grants any author clear copyright of his or her own material that has been accepted for publication within the GPQ-ADN and/or any ‘run-of-network’ GetPreQualified might be associated with currently or in the future. However, because of the nature of the web, GetPreQualified cannot protect your copyrighted material that might get copied from any page within the GPQ website.

Should you discover material that you submitted to GetPreQualified published on any site other than GetPreQualified.com or any of the sites within the ‘run-of-network’ distribution model you will have the responsibility to take legal action against the perpetrator, if you wish to do so, and you will bear the cost of such pursuit to protect your interests. If you do not wish to have this responsibility or agree to our terms, please do not submit your articles to us for publication. GetPreQualified DOES NOT ADVOCATE THEFT of ANY information found within the pages of the GetPreQualified.com domain.

ARTICLE LENGTH SHOULD BE at least 650 words in length and up to 2,500

The ‘sweet spot’ for articles on the web is typically between 750 and 850 words. Of course, if you have more information than 850 words, don’t let those numbers hold you back. You may see this as an opportunity to construct an article with various parts (i.e. Article Title: Part 1, Article Title: Part 2, Article Title: Part 3, and so on). This is a very powerful way to attract more traffic to your submissions as they naturally gain more relevancy when being indexed by the Web Directories and Search Engines.

MUST NOT be an ad for a specific product or service, press release, sales letter or excessive and blatant self-promotion.

Such efforts are typically not something that can be labeled as ‘educational material’ for our consumer base. It is the continuing goal of GetPreQualified to aid the general public by being a free, informative resource that they may return to for answers concerning the various topics found on the site. If you are looking to utilize the advertising power of GetPreQualified and the ‘run-of-network’ it is associated with, please contact Sales (sales@getprequalified.com ) and an arrangement can be made through that department.

ARTICLE CATEGORY or SUB-CATEGORY

You may suggest the category or sub-category that you feel your article is suited for. GetPreQualified retains the right to place your article under the category/sub-category that it things best things the submission is suited for.

ARTICLE SUMMARY

Each article that you submit must contain an Article Summary. A summary consists of 2 to 6 sentences and cannot exceed 450 characters. The purpose of a summary is to grant the viewer the ability to determine what the article is about offering a deeper understanding than what the title might provide. You should consider the inclusion of key words within the summary so that any indexing by the Web Directories and Search Engines. Such indexing takes place continuously throughout the pages of GetPreQualified. Your article can be better served within the external ranking it might receive from the likes of Google, Yahoo, MSN and so on.

FURTHER GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

Submissions MUST NOT be of the exact same article previously submitted

MUST NOT include a reply to a personal email, letter or other correspondence.

MUST NOT be keyword stuffed with excessive keywords or key phrases that are repeated and/or bolded too many times within the article.

Ideally, your keywords should be optimized based on the most commonly searched keywords as published by Wordtracker Keywords or some other keyword tool, for your particular niche. If you are unsure how to accomplish this, you are free to write the staff at GetPreQualified. If you do not include keywords then GPQ will choose them for you as this is a vital part of optimizing your article and getting your content noticed. It helps to use a good keyword research tool to help you determine which ones are best to use. You should have a minimum of 4 to 5 keywords and a maximum of 20. We do not accept keywords that are completely unrelated to the content of your article.
