Originally, I bought The Yahoo! Style Guide: The Ultimate Sourcebook for Writing, Editing, and Creating Content for the Digital World to have an up-to-date word list of technology and communications terminology. I have found the guide much more useful in my Web and blog communications.
The section on copywriting for SEO helpful in researching keywords for optimization and developing page copy. It brings the spectrum of SEO strategies together in one place for easy reference.
The chapter discussing abbreviation, capitalization, and title consistency demonstrates how to properly include references in Web communications. The chapter on avoiding common pitfalls in word choice, grammar, and spelling serves as a reminder of these traps to good writing.
The Yahoo! Style Guide lives up to its title. This excellent resource for writing in the digital universe should be on the reference shelf of everyone creating online content.
