The only real way to boost the amount of organic traffic to your site is to draw on the power of search engine optimization techniques.
Thankfully there are numerous effective SEO content writing tools out there that make the job of writing targeted copy a whole lot easier.
Let’s take a look at some of the best on offer…
SEO Tools For Content
Decent SEO content writing tools allow webmasters to:
- Discover powerful keywords
- Create targeted copy time after time
- Create optimized metadata and optimized descriptions
- Alert you to content that may have been plagiarized
The SEO tools that I will be covering today are the tools I’ve personally had the most success with. There are other tools out there but the combination of the options below seems to suit me the best…
#1 Jaaxy Keyword Tool
The Jaaxy Keyword Tool is the SEO brainchild of the two guys that taught me everything I know about internet marketing.
This awesome keyword tool was basically the final piece of the puzzle for me – website success appeared when this little baby arrived on the scene!
It’s impossible to nail down how effective and how much of an advantage this tool gives you in a few sentences. If you are serious about writing content that ranks I would suggest checking out our full review on the tool here
#2 The Google Keyword Planner
Sometimes it’s good to pick up a few keyword ideas before opening up the Jaaxy tool. The Google Keyword Planner ( formerly the Google Keyword Tool ) may be a little dated and clumsy but it still has it’s place in content creation.
It’s keyword ideas are nowhere near as inventive as Jaxxy’s results but they sure give you a great platform to start with. A lot of the time I take the long tail suggestions from the Keyword Planner and plug them straight into Jaaxy.
A simple click of a button will them give me a tidal wave of low competition keywords that are simple to rank for.
Google’s Keyword Planner also allows you to research the number of global and local searches for a particular keyword ( a very handy parameter! ).
#3 Inbound Writer
I was introduced to this inventive little tool a few years back and it’s served me flawlessly ever since. In a nutshell – Inbound Writer let’s you know the success of your content before you put pen to paper.
This tool will rate your content on a scale from 1 to 100 through a data driven approach to content performance. Based on your topic, Inbound Writer will research the internet and locate similar articles based on the same niche as your article.
It then takes this information and breaks it down so it can supply you with the best terms for your document/content.
This is an incredibly handy tool that has helped me out on so many occasions I’ve lost count. Unfortunately the free version only allows you a certain amount of uses per month but it’s better than nothing!
#4 The WordPress All in One SEO Pack
If you are using the WordPress platform for your website or blog and you are not using this plugin stop what you’re doing NOW!
That’s right, forget about reading the rest of this article for a couple of minutes and get to the plugin section of your site!
I am aware of several excellent SEO plugins for the WordPress platform but I would never move away from this one. Have a closer look at it’s features yourself here
#5 The Blog Topic Generator
From time to time we all run a little dry on ideas – it happens to the best of us I’m afraid! Hubspot is an excellent marketing site that offers some really inventive and useful tools.
The Blog Topic Generator is probably my favorite offering from them so far. It’s easy to use and very effective – it’s helped me out on numerous occasions.
You simply fill in the fields provided with nouns related to the topic you want to write about and the tool spits out a ton of relevant post titles.
I find that once I have a catchy and interesting title the remainder of the article is plain sailing. A little research here and there and I’m off and running!
Sometimes the titles the tool throws at you are a little off-key so you must be prepared to think outside the box a little bit. Their algorithm gives off suggestions that are sometimes grammatically incorrect but these are easy enough to shape into a decent title.
