Introducing SEO Blogger
Wordtracker, the keyword research specialists have just launched a fantastic new tool, SEO Blogger, that allows content writers to put together fully optimized posts.
SEO Blogger is a free Firefox plugin that basically provides a mini version of the Wordtracker keyword research tool within the browser. This means search engine friendly blog posts and articles can be put together, using the best keywords that Wordtracker suggests, without having to leave your editing page.
As SEO Blogger is a Firefox extension, it works with any CMS, including SubHub and Wordpress.
According to Andy Mindel, Wordtracker's CEO, he wants to give bloggers a useful, fluid, uncomplicated tool for producing optimized posts.
“Like many people, I was using one browser window for writing and one for keyword research.”, Mindel explained. “Then my girlfriend, Vicky, started to blog regularly on wind energy and while she knows that keyword research is important, she didn’t like breaking the flow of her writing to worry about keyword research. It was a chore that she didn’t particularly enjoy. So I wondered if I could make it easier for her.”
That’s when Andy came up with the idea of SEO Blogger as a Firefox plugin.
“A mini version of Wordtracker is clearly displayed on the editing screen and allows writers to instantly see the most popular keywords on what they’re writing about. It really makes keyword research easy and quick to do.”
Another useful feature of SEO Blogger is that the tool counts how many times you’ve used your chosen keywords in the copy that you’re writing.
Andy explains that he wants bloggers to view keyword research as “part of the mix”, rather than an additional task, which will slow down the writing of a post. SEO Blogger draws keywords from the main Wordtracker database so the quality of information is maintained.
Andy thinks content writers are beginning to understand that good keyword research helps bloggers decide what they should write about and the words they should use to attract the right visitors from search engines.
“You find a lot of good advice on SEO and keywords on sites such as Pro Blogger and Copy Blogger. The SEO Blogger tool allows bloggers to put that good advice into practice very quickly.”
Wordtracker is also planning more educational content to help bloggers with their SEO.
“We've now got a dedicated blogging channel on our academy that will show people how to use SEO Blogger and how to do keyword research. Chris Garrett has just written an article about how to use SEO Blogger. He really likes the tool and again, he's a real advocate for keyword research.”
