Google’s Developer Documentation Style Guides are available for those hoping to provide better content. Digital content can be good or bad with the bad at times becoming quite ugly. Google has put together this style guide to help users find and develop more unique content for the internet searchers of the world who are more and more particular and savvy in their online searches for the relevant content they are looking for in a world of ever changing consumer preferences.
- Balance your content’s tone. It should be friendly, but also get to the point.
- Many people like content to be a list or numbered format for easier reading.
- Avoid using keywords, slang, complex metaphors, and repetitive sentences to create memorable content.
“Last month, Google’s Developer Relations Group publicly published five different guides aimed at helping its own creators “striving for high-quality documentation.” And “documentation,” when posted online, means digital content.”
