Right now, having good content is the key to the success of your website. Keyword research isn’t enough for SEO anymore, and we need any tool we can get that will show us what Google’s search engine actually likes, and what it doesn’t like. Unfortunately, that has never been made super clear. That is where this list of really great tools comes into play. In a world where content is king, you need to be able to make yourself the king of content.
This is a pretty new website. They claim to look at 40 million SERPs on a rolling basis. The only other ones that look at that many for free would be SEMrush and SpyFu. It’s not the best, but it is useful and worth checking out!
SpyFu says that they index 4 billion results across 64 million domains across the United States and the UK. They don’t say how they define the results, though. Free users only get to see the related results from the top 10, but they do show the number of related terms they have found for the page. Even if it only shows you the top 10 though, who else do you really need to be looking at?
This company does offer a free version of their service with an option to upgrade to one of their paid plans. The developers are really trying new things when it comes to graph technology and finding gaps in topic relatedness, so it’s a little bit different that the other tools.
You can copy and paste from a page with images and any other media into their blog research tool and check out scoring holistic content for all the pages under one domain. This way, you can find different interesting topics that no one else is writing about, giving you the upper hand.
This is a tool you can use to judge the readability of your content. If you have a general interest website, no one wants to feel like they are reading a college essay you wrote to impress the professor who is failing you. It will tell you when a sentence is too long, and use different algorithms to determine the overall readability of an article you are writing. Pretty neat. Of course, wordcounter.net does the same thing… But no matter what you write, it tends to say you are writing at a college level. Currently, it says I’m writing at an 11th-grade level. It only switched to that after I wrote the last three sentences… Interesting.
Nibler finds the average number of words on a page, which is a comprehensive coverage mentioned by the Search Metrics Report. The tool can not single out the length of one page, but it can give you useful metrics for pages alongside another single page.
So there you have it! If you’re looking to better the content on your web pages then these 5 tools will definitely help you with that. Plus, the fact that they’re completely free isn’t too bad of a deal either.
