Use Cases

I use this tool very often to analyse keyword gaps between my client and their competitor sites as quite often who they deem to be their competitor is not their competitor online. It is also very easy to enter your domain into the technical SEO tools provided to get and overview of your site’s technical set up and pitfalls.

  1. Quickly find keyword opportunities between your site and your competitors rankings using the keyword magic and keyword gap tool.
  2. Get assistance in writing the require content using the content seo writing assistant and SEO writing template tools.
  3. Find technical SEO gaps on your site using the site auditor rools.
