5 Best Content Optimization Tools for Better SEO

What is SEO?

SEO stands for ‘Search Engine Optimization. It is the blanket term for all the actions taken to improve a website in order to boost its ranking in the search engine results pages (SERPs).

SEO can be tackled in a few different ways. It can be broadly categorized into two categories:

  • On-Page SEO
  • Off-Page SEO

On-page SEO refers to all the technical things you do on your website such as adding its meta descriptions, tags, internal linking, site map, etc.

While Off-page SEO refers to the activities you do outside of the website such as promoting it on other sites, guest posting, etc.

What is Content Optimization?

Content optimization can be defined as the “process of making sure content is written in a way that it reaches the largest possible target audience” (Campaign Monitor).

Content is a big part of SEO. Companies write blog posts and newsletters rife with content. Well-written content with proper keyword usage, linking, and plagiarism-free helps a website to rank higher in the SERPs.

Now that you understand what content optimization is, let us look into some content optimization tools that experts use.

2.    Check-Plagiarism.com

Of course, where writing is involved, plagiarism is also involved. Duplication present in content is very harmful to SEO.

As we know that search engines can detect duplication present in the content. Penalties for plagiarizing are severe, as sites that host plagiarized content can be demoted in rank or outright removed from the search engine’s index.

To prevent such a terrible outcome, content writers use tools such as plagiarism checkers to detect any duplication present in their work.
