  2. Do not bold a lot of text! Only bold key points, but keep it to a minimum.
  3. Make sure you stick to the rules about two non-self serving links. Choose your links with care since there’s a limit to how many you can use.
  4. Use the resource box to list your URLs. You are allowed two self-serving links in your resource box.
  5. Consider leaving out non-self serving links. You may want to delete the links in your article.
