The project
Article improvement tags are templates placed on articles that need improvement. Those articles can be identified and classified by the kind of improvement they need. Placing specific article improvement tags on an article accomplishes several goals:
  1. It groups that article in with other articles that need the same kind of improvement; this allows people to easily find and systematically fix the articles needing that improvement.
  2. It lets a reader know that the article has been identified as in need of a certain kind of improvement. This is valuable because:
  • The reader may be inspired to do that work
  • It doesn't leave the reader with the mistaken impression that whoever created or is working on the article believes that the article is as good as it could be.


Types of article improvement tags in the State Executive project

There are four types of article improvement tags used within the State Executive Officials project:

  1. {{SEO unique news update}}: Type {{SEO unique news update}} at the end of a section that could require a news-related update at some point the future. If this hinges on a future event, be sure to include the date.
  2. {{SEO update}}: Type {{SEO update}} at the top of a page that needs to be updated. Either the information on the page is out of date or the page needs to be brought in line with the SEO project writing guidelines. Include the reason for what needs updating.
  3. {{SEO quality}}:Type {{SEO quality}} at the bottom of a page that requires an overhaul. This page barely conforms with the SEO project writing guidelines and is of low quality and needs attention.
  4. {{Seo recall update}}: Type {{Seo recall update}} at the top of a recall page related to state executives that needs to be updated. Either the information on the page is out of date or the page needs to be brought in line with the SEO project writing guidelines. Include the reason for what needs updating.
  5. {{SEO stub}}: Type {{SEO stub}} at the bottom of a basic stub page. According to the SEO project writing guidelines, a stub page should have the following components:
  1. Infobox
  2. Introductory sentence
  3. See also section
  4. External links and references
  5. Categories
  6. Templates


Example

Using the tags:
{{XXXX|Month=MONTH YEAR|Reason=ADD REASON HERE}}

  • XXXX = tag name
  • MONTH = add the appropriate month. i.e. January and year, ie, January 2013
  • Reason = add the appropriate reason for the tag

Example: {{SEO update|Month=January 2013|Reason=Needs expansion}}
