Not just giving simpler user interface, SEO content helper also gives me a slot for second target keyword, “dominate Google SERP”
Your post also scored each time you save it. In addition there are keyword highlighter in two different view, and keyword density and images alt tag monitoring. To create SEO optimized content is simpler using this plugin.
3. Create SEO Optimized content using Scribe SEO
First, using this plugin will be like CHEATING.
Second, to be honest I myself not yet using the plugin. All the information below coming from this page. But considering how good Copyblogger’s product like Genesis Framework, and how Internet Marketers love them it’s save to say that the information is solid. Agree?
Scribe SEO also called Scribe Content or simply Scribe, it is the most powerful WordPress SEO plugin to handle on page optimization and help you dominate Google SERP. Why?
Because it is the only one that NOT only asking you about what you are going to write. Scribe will suggest you about your next content instead. Great, right?
Keyword Research using Scribe

Once the draft is created, you can analyze the post to better it’s relevancy with your website based from the content already published. The page itself also analyzed and getting improvement suggestion based on some parameters like the previous two.
Link Building/social analysis
This is the most tricky feature of scribe I think, though we were already cheating from the start 😆
This part is where Scribe help link building by analyzing websites that already have higher authority about your target keyword and/or social media posts about that keywords. That way you can connect with them, engage and go guest blogging on them to help your website rank higher.
