We’re in a time when writers carry a heavy responsibility. They produce the fuel that SEO and marketing engines need to drive sales forward.
That’s because content marketing requires a LOT of content. In fact, 72% of marketers surveyed said relevant content creation is the most effective SEO tactic.
It makes sense, then, that writers should be equipped with tools that help them make informed SEO decisions along the way to making relevant content.
Read about why original content is harder to produce and the solution to the growing need for SEO-skilled writers who can analyze data and decide what content needs creating in this post.

Announcing Bruce Clay SEO WP™ …
If you’re a WordPress publisher, you have many options for boosting your search engine optimization. You may be using Yoast SEO, All in One SEO, or another plugin to help you cover many SEO bases for the content you publish.
However, as I’ve been pointing out through this series of posts, current SEO plugins don’t go far enough. A lot of enhancements are needed to take you from just “best practices” to targeted and specific guidance that shows you how to get the maximum visibility for each of your posts.
In Part 1 and Part 2 of this series, I explained gaps that currently exist between SEO plugins available and the needs today. It’s a topic I’ve been thinking about for well over a year, as well as dreaming, planning and developing …
Now in this Part 3 post, I’m pleased to share a solution that has been months in the making.
The Bruce Clay SEO plugin for WordPress brings the power of our proprietary SEO diagnostic tools to the WordPress environment. And it adds search ranking and analytics performance metrics to the WordPress interface.
The combination of the new plugin and the SEOToolSet™ powering it is a MASSIVE difference-maker. We set out to “bridge the gaps” and enable any WordPress copywriter, editor or publisher to implement smarter SEO improvements, monitor their content’s reach, and much more.
Here’s what WordPress SEO has been missing until now.

Ever wondered what would happen if you ran classic literature through an SEO tool? Me, too!
I’ve got a sweet spot for tools that give me an idea of how I’m doing as a search marketer and content publisher. I think a true test of an SEO tool’s power is whether the software can do the job of a careful human expert in a fraction of the time.
Check out the following experiment, which details what happened when an SEO tool meets F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby.” While it was devised in fun and out of true curiosity, it ended up being a real-life study of SEO tools at work, worth sharing.
