The ever increasing number of publicly available Web Services makes standard-compliant service registries one of the most essential tools for service-oriented application developers. Previous works have showed that the retrieval effectiveness of this kind of registries strongly depends on the descriptiveness of published service descriptions. This paper presents a catalog of frequent bad practices in the creation of Web Service descriptions that attempt against their chances of being discovered, along with novel practical solutions to them. Additionally, the paper presents empirical evaluations that corroborated the benefits of the proposed solutions. These anti-patterns will help service publishers avoid common discoverability problems and improve existing service descriptions.
