Take a note of few things such as labels, description of your screenshots and always take in mind when you prepare an article that your target readers are the staffs in your LB. Hence, articles need to be simple, step-by-step and clear to understand.

Apply only the appropriate labels, it is a good practice to use the ones already existing. Tag cloud is available in the front end. You can use precise comma separated 3 keywords as tags or labels. USE नेपाली AS A COMPULSORY TAG WHEN YOUR ARTICLE IS IN NEPALI.
In cases when your article title is in Nepali, you will need to provide a short and descriptive permalink under the links section - do not use empty spaces between the keywords in links - rather separate them with - or _.
