Writing has become one of the greatest methods of earning money on the internet. There are various websites that are dedicated to gathering content. In fact there are many people who say that ‘content is king'. Others talk of content as royal content. All these names are given to content because of the importance of content in the Internet.

Content of an article plays an important role on the internet because it can drive internet traffic towards or away from the web site. This is the reason for many websites not allowing certain articles on their site. The search engines search for good quality articles.

While building a portfolio or a resume of the writing skills, the writer has to be very careful and only list the best articles. There are various aspect that have to be noted while making a resume. They are listed below. An individual should make sure that all these details are mentioned on the resume they prepare to apply for Internet based writing jobs.

1. Professional qualification: This is very important because there are certain high paying sites which will reward those who are highly qualified and if their writing also matches their qualification. This is especially true about computer based professionals. For those who are interested in technical writing, having a Master's degree in any field can be an asset for getting a good job.

2. Writing ability: It must be remembered that building a resume of the writing ability of a person for internet based jobs has many differences from applying for a writing job in the print industry. Print industry asks only for high quality writing. On the internet, other than high quality writing, Search Engine Optimized writing plays a major role in the value of a writer.

3. Experience: Experience is very important in making a resume on the internet. Almost all applications for writing jobs from freshers will be rejected. This need not make a fresh writer dejected. There are various sites on the internet that allow users to write articles and publish it on their websites. These sites can be the starting place for a good writing career. Writing good quality articles on these websites will catch the eye of someone who is searching for a writer.

4. Links / URL's: Once you have written on many websites, select the best pieces that you have written and use these URL's in your online resume and application. This will help the job provider to have a look at the writing that you have done. This can go a long way in getting the internet based writing job that you were eyeing.

5. Sample articles: In spite of building a portfolio and also having experience in writing, almost all good websites that are searching for writers, ask for a sample article when you apply for a job. Some job providers give certain keywords and ask the writer to write articles based on the keywords. These articles should be well researched and should have good quality content. The article should also be Search Engine Optimized to make the person providing the job satisfied.

Once all these steps are completed, then there is a high probability of the writer getting many writing opportunities.
