The importance of proofreading your content

Posted on November 13, 2009


It’s a well known fact that we all make typos when we are writing content. Either we’re writing too fast, we hit too many keys on the keyboard at once or we just use the wrong use of a word in a sentence. It’s very common, and understandable.

However, when you’re writing content for your company’s website, typos can look unprofessional and reflect badly on your business. This means that you should always proofread content before it gets posted on your website. Furthermore, proofreading your own content isn’t necessarily a good idea because the human mind tends to read what it believes to be there, rather than what is actually there. So when you’re reading your own content you’re actually reading what you intended to write instead of what you did write, which will result in you missing your own spelling mistakes.

You should therefore have someone else proofread your content for you, and likewise you should proofread content from other people. You’ll find that a fresh pair of eyes will spot mistakes much easier, resulting in fewer mistakes being published on your website.
