Sometimes people get confused with the terms content development and content writing. While content writing only limits to text based descriptions of anything on a webpage, content development is a holistic term. In content development a developer conceptualizes the entire structure of the webpage. The content developer has to be a visualizer to properly structure a webpage. Depending on his or her imagination and experience rich approach a webpage (at larger perspective a website) gets its presentable look which is supposed to attract the visitors. On the other hand, a content writer puts his or her best of efforts in turning words into visual story that keeps reader engaged with loads of information.
In very short, content development is the process of researching, gathering, organizing, and structuring information for publishing on web pages and very important part of web designing. Here content as a whole points out to prose, graphics, images, movies or other digital assets. The purpose of content is to distribute information by a hypertext transfer protocol server, so that those can be viewed through a web browser by anyone having access to internet.
