Out of every 10 clients who approach us for SEO auditing services, 8 find it difficult to understand how to do keyword research, how to get quality keyword suggestions, check keyword competition and search volume. In short every publisher today is most concerned about his competitor's keyword strategy and what is it that ranks his competitor higher on search results but not him or her.
Web Platforms and frameworks are mostly auto optimized today, what is required on publishers side is on-page optimization. Keyword research is all that matters most for content writers. Search robots judge content based on its quality content which is E-A-T (Expert-Authoritative-Trustworthy) and quality is judged by your presentation and selection of keywords. Serious bloggers and SEO agencies today rely heavily on building a solid keyword strategy using the best tools found online. I will be sharing and reviewing one such SEO tool with all of you today that fulfills all your blogging needs and which is a must for people with multiple blogs and no SEO skills. It will seriously help you dominate your niche in search rankings and crush your competition.
Do you really need a SEO tool to optimize content?
From 2015 onwards I personally felt the need for a user friendly SEO tool that could help my network authors to better optimize their blog posts in real time by choosing the best keywords for our content. For this I needed an advanced keyword suggestion tool which could fit my budget on monthly basis and as well as help us rank higher in SERPs. Google keyword planner is one such free option but it lacks several advanced functionalities and features and we needed something ahead of it.
I came across WebTextTool (WTT), which is the simplest on-page SEO assistant tool that helps you optimize your content in real time while you are writing your blog post. It gives you realtime suggestions to improve your content and make it more SEO friendly.
I was honestly fed up of correcting the SEO blunders done by my authors since a year but today thanks to webtexttool, I really don't need to waste precious time auditing a co-author's blog post. I can now concentrate on the creative part while WTT handles the optimization stuff.
I will therefore love to review WEbtexttool as a customer and share its unique features with all of you so that it may benefit you as much as it has helped us improve our organic traffic.
How can WebTextTool help you rank higher in SERPs?

I am currently using WTT's Silver Plan which suits our requirement, so I will be giving you a brief introduction of all its important features that we are using currently.

WTT's unique features like sentiment analysis, readability scores and page trackers are a life savor. The webtexttool Page Tracker utility allows us to track the Google rank of our blog posts for a given keyword and its optimization score after it is published. Surely my favorite feature!
1. Keyword Suggestion
The biggest reason behind any websites high position in Google rankings is its combination of rich keywords. The better you understand this terminology the better you rank in Google search results page.
Our co-author Nida Zaidi wrote an article recently on "Ten Richest Billionaires of Spain In 2016" on our sister blog "Smart Earning Methods". Let's analyze how SEO friendly her article is and find SEO mistakes if any made by her =)
On WTT homepage click "New Page" to see the "Keyword suggestion tool". Follow the steps below to learn how to do a keyword research before writing a new blog post.
How to use the Keyword Suggestions Tool?
- Select the right language and country, so you will get the results for the relevant country and Google domain.
- Enter your keyword or keyword phrase in the second step.
- Click "Give me suggestions" to get a list of suggestions based on your keyword
It gives you a clear idea of how widely is this keyword searched (Volume) in Google USA each month and how strong is the competition for this phrase. If you scroll down you will get several related keyword suggestions that are no less than a treasure for your content.
All your searched keywords are stored in history so that you could research them further in future.
Click "Use my Keyword" button to start writing your blog post inside the WTT editor.
2. Advanced Editor
In simple words I am in love with this editor! I am using Wordpress and Blogger Editors since 7 years but I have never came across any WYSIWYG editor with so much functionalities and support for content writing. You really don't need Windows Live Writer or your blog editor to write content anymore. WTT editor has all web editing tools to help you produce high quality content, which may not only be optimized but also well formatted and presented.
The hyperlink tool does more than just linking. You can specify different protocols such as http and https.
You are no more limited to just "target_blank" attribute to open links in new window. You can set your link target to an iframe or even a popup. Sky is the limit here.
You can add optimized tables by giving it a caption name and summary:
or add special characters inside your content.
The right panel gives your real-time SEO suggestions to improve your content. The page score meter monitors your overall optimization score in percentage.
Lets get to the real work!
In order to audit Nida's post for SEO errors, I don't need to copy and paste her article, I will simply import her published article using its URL. This option is surely a time savor and this is another reason why we find WTT so user friendly.
1. Go To Page > Import article
Insert your URL and click load to see the magic occur!
If you observe clearly WTT has detected that Nida's focus distracted from keyword
"Richest billionaires" to
"Spain", in short her post will not perform good in SERP's for our intended keyword unless these mistakes are corrected. That page score of 73% is for the word
"Spain" and not for our intended keyword. Thus to better optimize this post, I will copy this post's source and paste it inside a new page in WTT for our intended keyword i.e.
After creating this new page, the page score drops to 10% which is the actual and correct page score for her Post based on our intended keyword.
The Bad Things
- She forgot to add meta description again! This is a serious mistake.
- She forgot to emphasize on her suggested keyword using bold and italic text. She could have used related keywords suggested by WTT here.
- The keyword density in her post is almost negligible. WTT suggests that adding the keyword 6 times can improve search appearance significantly. Without a proper keyword density, it is really difficult to rank high in SERPs. Though the length of her article is acceptable. Fixing this part can improve page score by 80%!
The Good Things
- Her title is well optimized and follows best SEO practices as highlighted by WTT
- She has used highest priority H1 tag in her title.
- She has also made fair use of H3 tags for Sub headlines but adding her focus keyword at least once in these headlines can do wonders.
Now lets dig further to see if more errors exists in her post.
3. Accessibility Checker
This tool will help us optimize media content by finding missing alt tags in your blog images.
Go to Tools > Accessibility Checker.
A window will guide you step by step to locate the errors in blog images and will give you option to fix it with a click of a button by optimizing blog images with keyword rich alternative text. Amazingly Nida forgot to add alt tags in a total 11 images. =/
4. Sentiment Analysis
Here we can find out about the language tone used by the author and whether it follows ethical blogging standards or not.
Go To Tools > Analyze Sentiment
Luckily everything look normal here which shows that her verbal expressions are well expressed.
5. Readability Scores
Readability Tests are designed to indicate how difficult a reading text is to understand, usually by counting syllables, words and sentences inside your blog posts or general articles.
Go to Tools > Readability
She scored on average 80% or 8, which means the post can be easily understood by a wide range of audience from age 14 onwards. Since most of our articles target teenagers, so this score means a well written post.
6. Page Trackers
The webtexttool Page Tracker allows you to track the Google rank of your published content for a given keyword.
To start tracking a page, we simply need to fill in the URL and Google domain. WTT take the keyword from the current page you are optimizing in WTT editor. It then starts tracking the rank and the optimization score and will report it to you. I love this feature and it really helps us know where we stand in SERPs.
I could not be more honest with you than sharing with you the SEO mistakes of my co-author as a CASE STUDY with all of you. God knows how will sister Nida react to this! =d
Managing multiple blogs at a time is difficult unless you have tools and resources to lighten up your burden. Webtexttool has really helped me save precious time by making it easy for me to audit blog posts and fix the SEO mistakes instantly. WTT really helps you optimize all of your web content to make sure that you rank high in search engines like Google and Bing. I have been using several SEO tools for the past 7 years but so far none could provide us the above mentioned features.
I strongly recommend that you sign up the sooner possible with WTT. Use their 14 days free trial period and if you can offered, then go for Silver plan which is the partner plan I am using for managing all web content including those of my clients.
