Boosting SEO: Tips for Creating Search Engine-Friendly Content on Your Website

In today’s digital landscape, having a strong online presence is crucial for businesses to succeed. One of the most effective ways to improve your visibility and attract more organic traffic to your website is by creating search engine-friendly content. In this article, we will explore some valuable tips that can help you create content that not only engages your audience but also boosts your SEO.

Understand Your Target Audience

To create search engine-friendly content, it’s essential to have a clear understanding of your target audience. Take the time to research and identify their needs, preferences, and pain points. This knowledge will enable you to tailor your content to address their specific interests and provide them with valuable information.

Conduct thorough market research to gain insights into your target audience’s demographics, interests, and online behavior. Use tools like Google Analytics or social media analytics to gather data about who is visiting your website.

Once you have gathered enough information about your target audience, create buyer personas that represent different segments of your customers. These personas will serve as a guide when developing content that resonates with each group.

Keyword Research and Optimization

Keywords play a crucial role in making your content visible in search engine results pages (SERPs). By conducting thorough keyword research and optimizing your content accordingly, you can increase the chances of ranking higher for relevant search queries.

Start by brainstorming a list of keywords that are relevant to the topics you want to cover on your website. Then use keyword research tools like Google Keyword Planner or SEMrush to find related keywords with high search volumes and low competition.

Incorporate these keywords strategically into various elements of your content such as titles, headings, meta descriptions, URLs, and body text. However, be cautious not to overuse keywords as it can lead to keyword stuffing, which may harm your SEO efforts.

Create High-Quality and Engaging Content

Search engines prioritize high-quality and engaging content that satisfies user intent. By creating content that is informative, well-written, and visually appealing, you can increase the chances of attracting more visitors to your website and encourage them to stay longer.

Write in-depth articles that provide comprehensive information about a particular topic. Make sure your content is well-structured with clear headings and subheadings to improve readability.

Use visuals such as images, infographics, videos, or charts to enhance the overall user experience. Visual content not only makes your content more engaging but also helps break up long blocks of text.

Regularly Update and Promote Your Content

To maintain a strong online presence and improve your SEO rankings, it’s important to regularly update your existing content with fresh information. Additionally, promoting your content through various channels can help increase its visibility and attract more organic traffic.

Set aside time for regular content audits to identify outdated or irrelevant pieces of content on your website. Update these articles with new information or repurpose them into different formats like videos or podcasts.

Utilize social media platforms, email newsletters, guest blogging opportunities, and influencer collaborations to promote your content. By reaching out to relevant communities and influencers in your industry, you can expand the reach of your content and attract more visitors to your website.

In conclusion, creating search engine-friendly content on your website is essential for boosting SEO and attracting organic traffic. By understanding your target audience, conducting keyword research, creating high-quality content, and regularly updating/promoting it, you can significantly improve your online visibility and drive more valuable traffic to your site. Remember that SEO is an ongoing process; thus continuously monitoring analytics data will help you refine and enhance your efforts over time.

Andreas Inama

I have been working with the SEO Content Editor of SEO Review Tools for a couple of months now, and I couldn’t be happier that I found it. Jasja chose a very efficient approach when he implemented his tools: Keep it simple! You have a great overview of your content, it is very intuitive, and it reminds you that you need to save your files before closing the tab, which saved my life a couple of times.

Thank you Aldo for reporting this problem.

I love the app very much, but it will be more convenient if you could let user add secondary keyword not one by one, but with coma separated. For example, in the current state, if I would add secondary keywords “wp theme”, “fast wp theme”, I need to add it one by one. It would be better if I just type them directly with coma, like ( wp theme, fast wp theme ) and when I hit enter, all secondary keywords I type in would be there in the box.

Thank you very much

Great suggestion, it’s now on the to-do-list.

Thanks for the valuable feedback!!!

Surfer KR generates a list of keyword clusters that contribute to topical relevance, authority, and search engine rankings rather than requiring a seed keyword and manual sifting through hundreds of options, as other tools do.

For example, if your affiliate website focuses on nutrition, Surfer Keyword Research compares your domain's standing to competitors and suggests realistic keywords rather than high-volume, high-difficulty terms like "weight loss tips."

The "missing" tab shows you content gaps on your website that have high search traffic potential but have not been filled. Filling in these gaps can boost traffic and visibility.

May not be suitable for those who prefer manual control over keyword research.

Google Autosuggest is one such resource, once you enter your keyword into the search bar, Google will automatically complete it and provide more suggestions of what people are searching for.

Similarly, the 'People Also Ask' is a Google feature that appears if you scroll on the SERP after typing in your query in the search bar. This feature displays a list of queries similar to your search—you can integrate these into your article to try and land the featured snippet spot.

Since this information comes directly from Google, we can safely assume it's reliable and close to the actual metrics of the site.

Can I check the SEO of a content that was already written?

The SEO Writing Assistant is an AI intelligence capable of correcting any text. You can either write content from scratch directly on the editor or paste a content from another text editor. You can also refresh old content that was not created for SEO.

Why is my score on the SEO Writing Assistant different from the content score on the page analysis?

Contrary to the on-page SEO checker, the SEO writing assistant only takes into account what is written on the editor. It does not check for aspects such as link anchor, button texts or alt attributes i.e. If you also want to check for all these aspects, we recommend you to start writing your content on the SEO writing assistant and once it is published, you can run a page analysis.

5 SEO Writing Assistants to Support Content Creation (2023)

seo content writing assistant

There are two common types of SEO writing assistants (and the one you prefer will mostly depend on your workflows and goals).

Content optimization platforms with features to guide and streamline the strategic writing process — you might be interested in these if your goal is to produce unique, conversion-oriented content more efficiently.

SEO tools with AI writers designed to “do the job for you” —  teams with a high volume of content to churn out and limited writing resources might look for these solutions.

Now, we also understand that interest in AI is as prevalent as ever ; a lot of teams may feel tempted to use these tools in their writing workflows to save time. Why dedicate resources to writing content when you can train a machine to create it for you?

However, in most cases, we don’t recommend this solution. It may work for some teams, and we don’t want to discredit it completely. But as we’ve learned more about AI tools, and heard feedback from customers who have used these tools, we have a few concerns:

The content produced is mostly generic. These tools can write about high-level topics, but even then, most of the content it generates is just a remix of what’s already published online. These tools basically analyze target keywords, understand what ranks, then regurgitate a new version of the content already produced on the topic. You lose all originality — so the chance of standing out in search results or engaging readers is slim.

These tools can’t write strategic content around particular goals, share original opinions, or produce thought leadership content. Say you’re publishing content to drive sales to a certain product: you’ll likely experience challenges training AI to understand specific value points, and it’s rare that AI writers can truly represent your business offerings in the best light.

These tools aren’t actually all that time-saving. Sure, AI produces content instantly, but sometimes it’s incorrect or illogical (and as we’ve mentioned, generic). So you can still spend hours remixing AI content so it’s original, engaging, tailored to your business goals, etc. And sometimes, trying to remix content can be more challenging and time-consuming than crafting original content from the start.

That’s why we say: content marketing teams that want to optimize their processes are better off choosing a content optimization platform (option #1 above).

These solutions mesh with your existing workflows to support and guide each stage of content development. They allow you to maintain the strategic, creative aspect of the writing process, while simultaneously optimizing content for SEO and reader intent. Writers can produce high-quality, value-driven content faster and more easily .

Content optimization software (like Clearscope !) gives writers clear direction to:

Tackle SERP and competitive analysis.

Determine positioning, draft titles, and outline content.

Write high-quality, SEO-friendly content around specific objectives.

We’ll show you how our solution works in this guide. We’ll also review four other content optimization tools so you can compare popular SEO writing assistants and find the best solution for your business.

Note: Clearscope is our product. We’re proud of what we’ve built and believe we have the best content optimization and monitoring platform on the market. Request a personalized demo .

1. Clearscope

Seo writing assistant to guide & streamline content creation.

Clearscope’s SEO writing solution is designed to guide content optimization strategies within natural writing workflows — our reports support topic research and show you important criteria to touch on as you outline, draft, and edit content. You can focus content around reader intent and marketing goals, while also catering to search engines.

Our tools significantly speed up the writing process — Animalz uses Clearscope to save 3 hours per article .

We provide clear recommendations in content reports so you can shave down research time, easily build clear outlines, and optimize content as you write and edit. (And we don’t overload you with recommendations, so the process isn’t confusing or clunky.)

Our reports also show real-time progress — you can see which criteria you’ve covered, check readability, and monitor your content grade — and work through each stage of content creation more productively. There are no doubts about what to include in content, or guessing about whether you’re on the right track.

Let’s quickly review our features to show you how Clearscope enables writing teams to produce high-quality, optimized content at scale.

Feature overview

Clearscope’s tools make writing SEO-friendly content a seamless process so you can (quickly and easily) produce unique content that ranks and performs well. Specifically, we provide:

Keyword research tools to learn more about topics and who you compete with in search engines.

Content reports with heading suggestions, topics to cover, and terms to include in content — we show you competitor’s outlines, important themes, questions to answer, and more so you can write optimized content that stands out in search engines.

Content Inventory dashboard to monitor published content and manage updates (so it can continue to rank well and perform for you).

Keyword Discovery

Before writing, you can use the Keyword Discovery feature to learn more about the target keyword. We display metrics like search volume and list related keywords you might also want to target in your piece of content.

seo content writing assistant

You can instantly click to the search engine results page (SERP) and look at who you’re competing with. This lets you get a better understanding of search intent to determine where you fit into the mix — you can use these insights to start thinking of title ideas and ways to position content to engage readers.

(Then, you can perform more in-depth research on target keywords within our content reports.)

Performing keyword research and competitive analysis is critical in planning strategies to write unique content that engages readers and caters to their goals. We won’t get into all this here, but you can learn more about this step in our guide: Analyzing User Intent for Better SEO Results .

Content Reports

Our content reports offer true writing assistance, helping you get from outline to high-quality content in one fell swoop. Our reports even integrate with Google Docs so you can reference our suggestions in the tools you already use to write content.

Here’s how it works:

First, we have competitive analysis tools to continue keyword research — the ‘Competitors’ tab shows you who’s ranking in the top SERP positions. You can see each page’s title, URL, content length, and SEO score to understand what you’re up against in search results. Then, you can click on competitor sites and review the type of content ranking for that keyword.

seo content writing assistant

This has a few benefits — not only can you gauge the strengths and weaknesses of competitor content, but you can dig deeper into search intent and learn more about target audiences’ goals.

Are readers simply researching a topic? Are they shopping products and looking for a list of recommendations? How should you craft content to appeal to the Googler and perform well in the SERP?

From there, you can click into the ‘Research’ tab to see key takeaways from the SERP — like themes and commonly-asked questions — and determine snippet optimization strategies to help you choose which sections and FAQs to add to content .

seo content writing assistant

Next, we have the outline builder: our reports show you competitor outlines so you can identify important sections and develop strategies to outperform competitor content. How can you deliver something more valuable, helpful, and different from what’s already appearing in search engines?

seo content writing assistant

You can paste headings into your outline, but our reports also show suggested terms to use in headings (in the ‘Terms’ tab), so you can draft your own. You can filter suggested terms by “Heading” to see all of the heading ideas. It’s also a good idea to consider the themes and FAQs (from the ‘Research’ tab above) as you create your outline.

With Clearscope, you can build outlines faster while ensuring you touch on relevant information and fully satisfy user intent.

Finally, when it comes time to write content, we show you topics and terms to cover so you can write and optimize content at the same time . It’s a good idea to review the list of terms before writing — you can even use the semantic grouping feature to organize similar terms and get a broad idea of the topics you need to cover.

seo content writing assistant

We suggest writing content as you normally would, without getting too caught up in the list of recommendations. Why? Because when you put in the research to fully understand the topic and user intent before drafting, you can (in most cases) naturally write content that caters to both sides of the coin — the actual reader and search engine crawlers. You already know what’s important and what to write about.

You can reference the list as you write — you can also see your SEO score, word count, and readability grade as you draft — but when you understand the topic well, you can weave in our recommendations without trying too hard.

seo content writing assistant

Plus, as we mentioned above, our platform is designed with the natural writing process in mind:

We provide mostly single-term keyword suggestions (instead of long phrases) so it’s easier to include our recommendations within content.

We double-check that suggestions are unique, so there aren’t multiple variations of recommended terms and phrases, and you can avoid keyword stuffing or sounding robotic in your copy.

We use natural language processing to pick up on variations of suggestions, so even if you don’t use the exact word or phrase we recommend, you can still check off important boxes.

We show you the significance of each suggestion, so you can see what’s important to include (and avoid stressing over the not-so-important details).

Reports also provide definitions and examples for each suggestion, so if you’re writing about a new concept, you can reference background information and learn how to talk about topics confidently.

Once the rough draft is complete, editing and making final touches to content is easy: you can filter suggestions by “Unused” to incorporate leftover terms and achieve the recommended content grade, then review for spelling and grammar mistakes, check tone, and improve readability… as you likely already do in your normal workflows .

Then, you can add internal links, external links, images, and alt-text, as the last step before publishing. (You can also follow this checklist to make sure you include all of the important on-page SEO elements.)

Voila! You’re ready to publish.

Even though our platform isn’t generating content for you , it streamlines the entire writing process because it provides clear-cut direction to position, outline, draft, and optimize content.

Our content reports guide content optimization while allowing you to maintain originality in your writing. You know what topics interest readers, who you compete with, and how to make your name in the space. You can put yourself in the best position to rank highly in search engines, increase organic traffic, and convert readers.

Clearscope’s writing assistant lets you create original, value-driven content more effectively, and avoid the risks of AI writing (e.g., publishing generic content, not engaging readers, not competing well in SERPs, not accurately representing your brand, spending hours remixing content).

Content Inventory

After you dedicate time and resources to producing high-quality content, you want it to perform well (and continue performing well) so you can see ROI from content marketing .

However, most teams don’t think to track content beyond looking at traffic and conversions from web pages. So Clearscope offers “Content Inventory” so you can monitor your web pages’ SEO scores and know exactly when content needs updates (and how to update it ).

seo content writing assistant

This dashboard is easy to set up and reference: paste URLs of the pages you want to track and add each page’s target keyword. We stay up-to-date with Google algorithm and ranking changes to show you content’s current SEO score each time you check the dashboard.

Then, when you notice content scores dip, you can refresh content to improve performance . This lets you get in front of updates before content loses rankings or traffic. Content doesn’t fall through the cracks, and you can prevent content decay . (Not to mention, this helps you avoid wasting time updating content that doesn’t need it.)

Note: We also have a WordPress plugin so you can reference Clearscope reports in your CMS and easily re-optimize content within WordPress.

Try our SEO writing assistant

Clearscope’s features let you manage content creation under one roof: we provide collaborative functionality so content writers and editors can work together. Not to mention, all Clearscope reports are shareable — and sharing is completely free — so you can send reports to freelance content creators, or any writers you partner with, and they can use our tool in their workflows.

Plus, our platform is easy to use and requires no training, so whether you’re just learning how to write SEO content or you’re looking to support a large team of writers, you can easily get started in Clearscope . (We offer pricing and packages for individuals, small teams, and enterprise users .)

Semrush is a popular digital marketing solution because it has dozens of toolkits to support various marketing team needs. For example, they have local SEO tools, features to power PPC campaigns, backlink management tools, and solutions for agencies. In addition, they offer the Semrush SEO Writing Assistant — this feature includes an AI writing tool and provides actionable tips to write SEO-friendly content.

You can use their tool to generate AI content, edit spelling/grammar mistakes, revamp tone of voice, and improve readability. The platform also has a plagiarism checker to avoid duplicate content — which, as we stated, can be an issue when working with AI tools .

Recommended reading: How To Engineer Better AI Prompts for Your SEO Content Strategy

You might be interested in Semrush’s solution if you already use the platform for other tasks. However, most teams don’t invest in Semrush for this solution alone. (In fact, many teams that use Semrush also use a dedicated content optimization tool to support the writing process.)

This is because Semrush’s SEO writing tool is pretty surface-level:

The AI writer often produces generic content, so you spend a lot of time making content sound unique. And by the time you’re done editing, it can be hard to tell if the content is still fully optimized for the target keyword.

They offer high-level advice on what to talk about, but recommendations are not super specific (the recommended keywords are usually just variations of the main keyword).

The extra report suggestions also aren’t very helpful — they might tell you how content is lacking, but don’t provide a ton of guidance on how to bring it up to speed.

Semrush offers the Writing Assistant as a free SEO tool for users who already have a Semrush account, but they also provide limited trials for new users.

Frase is content optimization software with an AI writing assistant to instantly write content for you —  their tagline is literally “ research, write, and optimize content in minutes instead of hours .” So if you’re interested in a super-fast AI writing solution, Frase might appeal to you.

All in all, the platform provides:

SERP research tools to review competitor content.

An outline builder that lets you drag and drop headers from competing posts into your content. (AI can also write headings for you.)

An AI writer that analyzes your outline and turns it into a completed draft.

Collaborative tools so writers and editors can review and finalize copy together.

An optimization feature that compares your final content to what’s already ranking and provides tips to polish it before publishing.

Frase can help you produce a high volume of content quickly, and if you’re writing about broad, commonly-talked-about topics, it might be able to generate content that doesn’t require heavy edits. But as we’ve warned throughout this post, there are risks with using Frase’s AI content.

The cons of this platform include:

Loss of originality — Frase, like other AI writing models, generally produces mirage content (or content that just restates what’s already written on the topic). It’s not going to “say anything new.” Reviews of Frase state that content often sounds computer-generated or robotic.

It’s not very time-saving when you consider the editing that goes into refining content.

The SEO suggestions aren’t very clear or helpful — plus, Frase offers so many suggestions it can be hard to implement every recommendation (or know which recommendations are worth spending time on).

You might consider Frase to generate rough draft copy, but it’s not advanced enough to fully deliver on its promise of (quality) “content in minutes.”

Surfer is another top-rated content optimization tool with features to: 1) write new SEO content, and, 2) analyze existing site content, identify ways to improve upon what’s already published, and guide future content marketing strategies. Its strengths lie mostly in the latter — it’s known for its Grow Flow Dashboard that delivers personalized SEO insights each week (it can tell you which posts need updating, identify posts with issues like broken links, show you new keywords to target, etc.).

Surfer has an AI writing tool to create SEO-optimized content in minutes.

Similar to Clearscope, they also have content reports with suggestions to write new content yourself — they show you headings, FAQs, and terms to include in content. However, the big difference between Surfer and our solution is that Surfer’s content reports are super (almost too) comprehensive and prescriptive (to a fault).

Reports include hundreds of terms to include in content, and recommendations are sometimes repetitive — working through all of Surfer’s suggestions can tack on hours to the writing process (even though the whole point of their platform is to produce content quickly). Plus, Surfer doesn’t tell you what’s important to focus on, and suggestions are sometimes unclear; this complicates the process even further.

Although Surfer doesn’t offer the best tools to streamline new content creation, you might be interested in this solution if you want to make better use of existing content. You can update and re-optimize old posts so they have a greater chance of ranking in SERPs and driving new traffic.

The last option on our list, Yoast SEO Premium, is a popular option because it integrates with common tools like WordPress and Shopify to guide content optimization and check on-page SEO elements — it’s mostly to dot your I’s and cross your T’s before pushing content to your site.

It offers a few features to write SEO-optimized content and improve readability, but this solution is primarily used to check other ranking factors and meet technical SEO standards. For example, this tool grades your content by looking at:

Outbound links

Keyphrase length

Keyword in title and meta description

SEO title length

Meta description length

Text length

Keyword in slug

Also has plagiarism check

Although Yoast doesn’t have a ton of features to support content writing, it does help content creation in other ways — it:

Provides feedback on internal linking strategies.

Shows you if content contains broken links, so you can maintain a smooth user experience.

Automatically adds structured data to your site so Google can crawl and rank content more easily.

Shows you what content will look like when shared on mobile or social media, so you can update the thumbnail or description to make sure sharing links offer the best representation of content.

Suggests ways to improve technical SEO and prevent back-end issues from impacting rankings and content performance.

Yoast integrates with other SEO tools, like content optimization platforms, so you can use them in tandem and manage content production in alternative solutions. Many teams use Yoast in addition to other SEO software.

Clearscope’s SEO writing assistant tool offers features to streamline the entire content writing process, so you can create high-quality, well-written, value-driven (optimized) content in a fraction of the time.

Different Types of SEO Content Writing Tools: SEO writing, Paraphrasing, SEO Writing Assistants

Types of SEO Content Writing Tools

Before we dive deeper into the world of these virtual helpers, let’s understand their categories.

  • SEO writers: Such tools aid in identifying ideal keywords contributing towards better SERP (Search Engine Result Page) standings.
  • Paraphrasing tools: These software streamline the task of rewriting texts by offering refined versions that maintain original intent while improving compositions’ uniqueness.
  • SEO writing assistants: Combining versatility with utility – an SEO writing assistant encompasses several functionalities, from real-time content analysis to suggesting improvements so as to tailor-make your drafts for both audience engagement and optimal online visibility.

What SEO content writing tools can do for you

It seems simple enough to write effective content that appeals to your audience. However, a lot goes into making sure that your target audience can find and read the written material you spend so much time developing. In the end, SEO matters at least as much as the actual quality of what you write.

To be truly effective, digital marketing teams need to use data to make decisions about what goes into the content. Without looking at the numbers that dictate your audience’s interests, how do you intend to identify the best keywords, include the right information, and determine the ideal word count that will get your content climbing up search engine result rankings? And that’s before we even talk about URL and meta-tag optimization.

But you don’t need to deal with all of this manually. With SEO content software, the vast majority of this kind of optimization activity can be automated so that you can save time and focus on the writing itself.

The benefits of using SEO Writing Assistant for content creation and optimization

The benefits of using SEO Writing Assistant

Ah, the humble SEO writing assistant – often unsung but forever a crucial tool in any content creator’s kit. Let’s delve into some of the intrinsic benefits this little gem brings to your content creation and optimization process.

Time Efficiency and SEO Integration

First off, time efficiency just has to be mentioned. Any seasoned writer knows that creating original, high-quality content is no walk in the park. It takes a considerable amount of time to research, write, and edit a stellar piece of work. With an SEO writing assistant by your side, you can considerably cut down this time through its real-time content analysis feature. Since it helps you optimize for SEO alongside the writing process, you won’t have to go back to tweak things later on.

Streamlined Workflow and Automation

Continuing our journey towards improved workflow, we encounter another significant advantage: Automated rudimentary tasks like grammar checks or checking readability statistics suddenly become less tedious jobs. Witty as we writers may be at crafting nicely flowing sentences and engaging narratives, all of us could use a fresh pair of eyes for mundane proofreading tasks.

Enhancing Creativity with SEO Insights

Using an SEO writing assistant doesn’t mean compromising creativity. On the contrary! This clever tool offers keyword suggestions helpful for audiences and search engines alike while fostering interlinks between creativity and optimization. But how? By taking care of technical bits like injecting apt keywords for content creators where they matter most or suggesting internal link opportunities, letting you focus more on communicating your ideas effectively.

Ensuring Consistent Tone across Content

Last but not least, let’s talk about consistency, which an SEO Writing Assistant handsomely offers in terms of tone throughout all blogging activities, acting as an SEO writer guiding contributors across departments to ensure messaging cohesiveness with their unique Tone-of-Voice Analysis features, resulting in better brand representation. Are you starting to see the clear advantages here? Whether it’s through saving precious hours removing tedium from routine tasks or aligning creative flair with technical expertise – good ol’ SEO Writing Assistant is proving to be quite the writing helper tool. And remember, quality content is only as good as its visibility in search results!

Use cases of SEO Content Writing Tools

Use cases of SEO Content Writing Tools

Just because your solution can help with the development of more engaging content doesn’t mean it will if you don’t use it effectively. That means understanding exactly what steps of the writing process it can help with and how.

Picking a subject and keywords

By determining what topics interest your customers as well as the keywords they search, you can narrow the focus of your content and be far more confident that it will appeal to those intending to read it. Your SEO content tool can determine what your articles should focus on by predicting traffic related to certain subjects and keywords.

Streamlining research

You can’t write on a given topic without researching it thoroughly and understanding what your competitors have to say about it. Content Writing Software automates and expedites this stage so that you don’t have to spend hours finding the right information.

Developing an outline

If you want to avoid numerous iterations and make sure that your content comes out in the way you expect, you’ll need to build and share a detailed outline . This should include the desired headings and keywords, both of which your tool for content writing can identify more efficiently than a manual search.

Understanding your competitor’s approach

All of this preparation remains dependent on effectively interpreting how the industry handles the topic you plan to cover. More specifically, by reviewing the content published by your competitors, you can find ways to deliver a superior product designed specifically to out-compete them. The best content writing software can assess the competition so that you can get a leg up on others within your market.

Improve your content writing

Of course, all of this work builds to the point at which you actually put pen to page (or, more likely, fingers to keyboard) and write your content. The right AI content writing tool ensures that your work comes out grammatically correct and correctly spelled while some even allow for narration or AI-powered support.

Review and refine

Once you have the first draft in place, it’s time for others to read through it and provide feedback. This ranges from checking sentence structure and word choice to overall readability. Website content tools such as Grammarly can perform the sort of in-depth review you’ll need to truly optimize your writing.

Avoiding plagiarism

While content should almost always be created from the ground up, it’s surprisingly easy to overlap with existing content that covers similar topics in a similar format. That means that you need to know that your article remains distinct enough to avoid any accusations of copying other work, though this requires a great deal of time and awareness. Instead, many tools for article writing come with the capability to perform these checks to further streamline your process.

Proper optimization

As we’ve already discussed, you’ll need to do more than write a good article to get noticed. Every page and piece of content needs to be created with its audience in mind, which goes for both their interests and the way they search for the topic on which you’ve chosen to focus. An SEO content writing tool will suggest or even directly add the words and phrases that search engines pick up on to answer queries.

Making your content readable

Once you’ve cleaned up your writing and embedded relevant keywords and information that will get it noticed, you’ll need to take into account how well it reads. Working within the constraints needed to ensure success after publication can result in twisted sentence structure and convoluted delivery. Certain SEO writing software can identify awkward segments and suggest ways to improve them.

Launching and utilizing content

When you have your new article properly formed to fulfill your goals and meet the expectations of your audience, it’s time to publish it on your preferred channel. But even once this takes place, the world doesn’t end. You’ll want to continue engaging your customers even once they’ve finished an individual article by sending them to new pages, meaning that you’ll likely want Content Writing software that enables the efficient publication and the use of hyperlinks.

Tracking search engine results ranking

So, your content has made it to the end of the process and now lives on your website. How do you know if you’ve hit your target or need to adjust your approach in the future? You’ll need to review the results of the publication to see how many people are viewing the page. To do so, use content writing tools for SEO to keep track of how well your content performs on search engines as well as more basic elements such as loading speed.

Best free and paid tools for SEO writing optimization

Now, let’s look at the actual options you have to choose from when looking for an SEO writing assistant. While we are often asked to describe the top ten tools for SEO, providing an answer has always proven difficult, largely because there are so many potentially impactful solutions that you could choose. So, we’re going to go through our favorites, starting with comprehensive tools, both free and paid, before getting into more focused options.

Viable alternatives

For more niche circumstances or needs, there are other options to explore. WordHero is a new AI writing tool that can create long-form content but operates at its best when working as an assistant for a human writer.

The Hemingway web application is entirely free. If you want to work offline and gain access to integrations that enable direct publication on WordPress and Medium, you can pay €20 for the desktop application.

Once again, there are always additional options to cover more specialized circumstances.

ProWritingAid functions as a cheaper version of Grammarly, in which AI will comb through your writing carefully to find spelling and grammar errors. To simply cover the plagiarism review, PaperRater and Copyscape represent excellent free services that specialize in this area.

What Is SEO Content Writing?

SEO writing is the process of creating and publishing content while keeping in mind a user’s search intent. And it takes a lot of effort to curate top-notch content that focuses on the user’s needs versus generating fluff.

If your page content is useful, Google will most likely rank it for that particular keyword. For instance, say a consumer wants to buy a shower head, but the search is specific to the size of the bathroom.

Basing an article on the keyword “ buy a shower head ” will only sound commercial with little to no relevance. Now an article based on the keyword, “ what size of shower head is best for small bathrooms, ” has clear informative intent.

The end goal of SEO writing is t o rank on the first page of Google’s search results . The search engine only picks up what it determines is relevant to a user’s search query.

What Is a Content Writing Tool? Do You Need One?

Plus do your keyword and competitor research, and optimize the HTML tags, and use schema – the list goes on to 700 points.

The tools presented here will help you keep track of all the moving parts.

All-In-One SEO & Writing Tools

1. semrush writing assistant.

Top 25 SEO Writing Tools to Earn More Traffic From Google

SEMrush is one of the mainstays of the SEO industry in general.

In their Writing Assistant, simply enter the keywords you’re looking to rank for, and start typing your text.

SEMrush breaks your text down to 4 main areas:

  • Originality
  • Tone of voice
  • Readability

It then provides you with advice on how to improve each of these elements.

Writing Assistant pulls on SEMrush’s formidable SEO resources to give you optimization advice.

From reminding you to add your target keywords to your title, to suggesting additional keywords to enrich your text, you’ll be covered.

Some of the features of the Writing Assistant are available for free. But in order to get some advice on writing a better copy, as well as some in-depth SEO data, you’ll need a Guru plan costing $199.95/mo.

2. Yoast’s Real-Time Content Analysis

Top 25 SEO Writing Tools to Earn More Traffic From Google

Yoast is easily the biggest SEO plugin for WordPress in the world right now. Their SEO content creation tool combines a host of SEO-advice and writing processor features.

Like SEMrush’s Writing Assistant, it’s a cloud service, so you can hop in at any time and start writing. Unlike Writing Assistant, though, Yoast gives you free SEO advice in spades.

Using Yoast’s Real-Time Content Analysis, you can create and edit your perfect title and meta description, and immediately see how they’ll look on the SERP.

Combined with some integrated on-page analysis, it is one of the best tools for on-the-fly text analysis and editing.

Using Yoast’s Real-Time Content Analysis is free . Getting your SEO content score using Yoast will not cost you a penny, and you are free to do so as often as you wish.

3. WebSite Auditor’s Content Editor

Top 25 SEO Writing Tools to Earn More Traffic From Google

Content Editor, in essence, is a word processor enhanced by the SEO capabilities of WebSite Auditor (disclosure: this is a tool built by my company SEO PowerSuite) .

As you’re writing your future page, you’ll get some crucial SEO pointers .

When filling out your title and meta description, you get a sample SERP. You’ll see how your Title and Meta description will look, and get a view of how your biggest niche competitors fill out theirs. That way, you’ll be able to adjust your HTML tags to follow the best SEO practices.

There’s a keyword counter always available, letting you check if you’ve added all of your target keywords.

The page you’re writing is also being continually audited for on-page SEO issues, and you’re presented with the problems you’ve overlooked and the best ways to solve them.

And as competitor research is crucial for proper content creation, you’ll also have an automatically curated and fully customizable list of niche competitors at hand.

As a module in WebSite Auditor, Content Editor is available in the free version of the software.

Tools for Just the ‘SEO’ Part

4. kwfinder.

Top 25 SEO Writing Tools to Earn More Traffic From Google

KWFinder is one of the tools that puts SEO in “SEO Writing”. What makes it a great tool for keyword research is not just that it provides a bunch of keyword suggestions.

What makes it great is that it provides you with some in-depth keyword data like precise search volume, CPC costs, and how the popularity of your chosen keyword changed over time.

It will also give you an overview of the current SERP for your keyword, giving you an opportunity to steal the SEO methodology from the best.

The Basic plan is $49/month for 100 keyword lookups a day, Premium is $69 for 500 keywords, and Agency will run up a bill of $129/month for 1,200 keywords a day.

There’s also a free 1o-day trial available.

5-9: Viable Alternatives

If, for reasons of price or convenience, you want to go with something else, Answer the Public is a brilliant alternative that gets all the points for style.

For lower-volume keyword research, a great tool is also Keyword Sheeter , providing you with heaps of keyword suggestions, and only charging you for the in-depth data on those keywords.

For data, you can turn to Ubersuggest or the regrettably expensive Keyword Eye .

If what you want is a list of keyword suggestions based on what you already rank for specifically in Bing, you might want to look at Keyword WordStream .

10. Keyword Density Checker

Top 25 SEO Writing Tools to Earn More Traffic From Google

Small SEO Tools’ Keyword Density Checker was created specifically to help us avoid the pitfalls of keyword stuffing.

The tool works in a straightforward way: you add your text (up to 2,000 characters) or a URL. The tool then runs the page in question through the program and gives you a detailed report on your SEO writing.

You get a breakdown of your most prevalent keywords, and whether you put them in your HTML tags.

Most importantly, the keywords you’ve used will be listed along with their density , so that you can easily avoid overstuffing your page and suffering penalties.

This helps you rework what your page is “about” in the eyes of the search engine by taking out the keywords with high density that are stealing your target keywords’ thunder.

Small SEO Tools’ Keyword Density Checker is free for anybody.

11-14: Viable Alternatives

Try the WordCounter tool. It works the same way as Keyword Density Checker, only you can paste as big a text as you need, no limit of 2,000 characters here.

Another great tool to up your SEO writing is IMN’s Onscreen Optimization Tool .

This tool has additional advantages in that you also get a breakdown of your page’s link profile, and access to your page’s HTML code right from the app.

You can pair it up with totheweb’s Title & Description Checker or SEOscout’s Google SERP Simulator – both are free tools and allow you to check out how your page’s title and meta description are going to look on the SERP.

Tools for Just the ‘Writing’ Part

15. grammarly.

Top 25 SEO Writing Tools to Earn More Traffic From Google

Grammarly hardly needs any introduction. But it would be unfair to leave it out when talking about the best tools to help you with your writing.

If you need a comprehensive spell-checker, a writing assistant, and a grammar expert in a single, seamless package – this should be the mainstay of your SEO writing arsenal.

Whether you’re just creating a new page, or rewriting an already-existing one, every text you write should be proofread with Grammarly.

You can definitely use the free version.

However, to check your content for plagiarism and have your writing goals saved to your profile, you might want to switch to the Premium subscription, which would run you up a bill of $29.95/mo.

16-20: Viable Alternatives

A cheaper tool that covers much of the same territory is ProWritingAid .

With the AI dedicated to nitpicking your grammar, you’ll be creating stronger texts in no time at all.

And if what you miss most in the free version of Grammarly is the plagiarism checker, turn to PaperRater or Copyscape . Those are two of the best plagiarism checkers.

You can also turn to Ginger . It’s a grammar checker that also helps you translate the document into one of the 40 available languages.

And if you’re comfortable with your grammar, and you want some vocabulary help, you can use SpellCheck Plus .

21. Hemingway App

Top 25 SEO Writing Tools to Earn More Traffic From Google

It makes your writing bold and clear.

That’s it.

Despite the fact that Hemingway himself actually often used long and winding sentences, his legacy lives on as that of a concision master.

Hemingway App is all about making your text more readable. It will provide you with synonyms, check your usage of passive voice – overall, make your text as readable as possible.

Using the web-based version of Hemingway is completely free.

However, if you want a desktop app, you’ll have to pay $19.99. This would also let you publish directly after you’ve finished writing.

22-25: Viable Alternatives

A great tool that was created for students but we all can benefit from is Slick Write . This tool sports a very useful Associator module, giving you tons of associations for any word.

Good overall readability apps are Read-Able and Airstory .

The former tests your text against a whole slew of readability metrics. The latter has fewer metrics but is still a great free tool for content creation.

Language Tool  is another tool to up your readability, with a twist. With it, you also get a browser add-on, which is very convenient for copywriters of all types.

Today, all content creation is SEO content creation.

And all writing should be SEO writing.

Creating a readable, efficient copy today goes inevitably hand in hand with its optimization.

Demands of search engines already start to coincide with the desires of actual users.

This is why taking care of both sides of SEO writing is paramount to creating top-ranking and selling content.
