Copywriting SERP Checker
Here you’ll see how your competition is doing in the content creator’s department. It’s like using Copy Metrics on steroids because you’ll be able to check in a glance all the metrics you’ll get with this tool, but for all your competitors for the same keyword.
The first thing you’ll see is the text metrics. How many words comprise the article, the reading time and reading ease, and the author’s info.
How are they relevant to SEO?
It is common knowledge that an SEO-oriented article must be more than 400-words long, so search engines don’t consider it spam. This because Google and the others aim to provide their users with useful content. And let’s be honest, it isn’t easy to deliver relevant information with so few words.
Reading time and ease.
Useful content is one that is easy to read. So, while we should try to make our blog post long enough, we also must keep it not too long either. Nobody has the time – or the attention – to read long articles. Let alone long ones that are difficult to read.
While authorship is not a ranking factor, Google considers it is a quality indicator.
In its quality guidelines, Google regards the absence of information about the content’s author as an indicator of low quality.
Since Big G emphasizes trustworthiness with the notion of YMYL and the E-A-T guidelines, an anonymous and unreliable writer does not bode well for the website she is writing on.
Most relevant Keywords
Right below the text stats, you’ll find the most relevant keyword table. It provides you with all the most pertinent keywords highlighted on the heatmap ordered on a list and sorted by relevance. It also shows you the distribution of each keyword through the various text elements. The more a keyword is present on URL, title, headings, and meta description, the more Copy Metrics will consider it as an essential topic of the blog post.
You’ll have an ordered list of the headings used in order of appearance on the headings table. If the article is well written, the table will give you an overview of the topic’s structure and sub-topics.
You can also see what keywords the author used and which ones are the most relevant to her.
Link building is one of the most critical activities in off-site SEO. To link your article to other parts of your website and other relevant and authoritative ones increases your content’s value. As a result, Google will reward it with a good ranking. You will have a complete list of internal and external links within the blog post in the Links table.
It is useful information when you use Copy Metrics to spy on the competition. You can use the table to see how many relevant links you should add to your blog post to make it more “linked” than your competitor’s.
Images are crucial in SEO; you should know that. They enrich your textual content, make navigation more pleasurable, and provide you with an extra clicking point on the SERP. Some people can land on your website from an image search, provided that your pictures feature an alt-text.
On the images table, you can see in a blink of an eye which images in the article have an alt-text and which have not. In this case, you’re lucky. No one here seems to use alt-text. Don’t you know what an alt-text is? Good news: we wrote a guide about how to optimize your images for SEO.
