When it comes to creating content online, what is your main focus? Is it to provide value to your audience, increase traffic and sales, or to help grow your brand and bring awareness to whatever it is you specialize in? No matter which of these it might be, the content on your site is important and it shouldn’t be a rushed or half-effort project. The best content on the internet today is much longer in words, more detailed, and full of original images, citations, and references to other sites. In short, if you are still focusing your efforts on writing daily articles that are just 500-words long, you are doing it wrong. This is especially true when it comes to SEO and trying to compete against some of the top sites on the internet today. With over a billion active sites now pushing content out there, it’s not only harder than ever to compete, it’s also more of a pre-planning and marketing strategy game as well.

    Great tools here.
    I'll be the first one to admit that when it comes to keywords, I still struggle.
    I think part of it is that I write about topics that aren't popular, so when it comes to searching for terms, words, phrases, etc...I'm just not sure how to find something that has decent search results that also blends properly with the topic.
    But I'll keep at it - and I'll use the guides you shared here.
    Thanks for putting this together.

    Thanks for those tips on SEO tools, especially UberSuggest. It's free! What's not to like :-)

    I'm glad this article confirmed what I read elsewhere, that longer blog posts are necessary these days. I have had guest authors turning up their noses when I asked for 900+ words - and in fact I should have been asking for even more!

    Great share Nadav.

    I just love Ubersuggest by Neil Patel - I started using it last week and it's quick, easy and provides a lot of suggestions. It's not complicated like some other tools out there and it is FREE to use!
    I have found 1200 or more words do help with both the bounce rate and the page views for posts. It can be hard sometimes but I think if one can do more research it could end up a 2500+ word length post.
    Thanks for the suggestions from this one!

    I love how you mentioned using a plagiarism checker when outsourcing. I'd like to add a reminder to use one when accepting guest posts, too!
    All bloggers should double check that the content is original so you don't get penalized by Google!

    Hi Nadav,

    Now doubt that Ahrefs and SEMRush are the two tools ruling the market right now. Checking the keyword competition and analyzing the data can really help. Apart from that, BuzzSumo is also a place to explore.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

    Have a great day.

    Hi Nadav,

    This is a great article!

    I started using Ubersuggest last week and I bookmarked it right away.

    Flippa is a new tool for me. I like the sound of it so I'll definitely check that one out after I leave this comment. :)

    Thanks for sharing this!

    Interesting content and great list of SEO tools there. I use Ubersuggest in most of my blog writing and it is definitely great ways to find LSI keywords too!
