Google Docs is the most powerful document editor for writers in my opinion. It makes writing collaboration easy and powerful while multiple people can edit a single document on the cloud.
Personally I love writing content on Google Docs. The most lovable thing regarding docs is its powerful autosave feature. If you are writing content on Google Docs, you are not going to lose even a single word your write.
But the issue with writing content with Docs is it doesn’t create clean code when it comes to content formatting. It adds unnecessary heavy HTML formatting that makes code view messy. Bad formatting, in a way, affect SEO and it also creates issues in applying custom CSS to the content.
So, in this article, let’s get to know how to create content for WordPress without messy formatting.
