Readability is the ease with which a reader can understand a written text. The more readable a piece of content is, the more likely a user is to read through the entire text.

  • Adjust your copy’s readabilityThe tool analyzes your copy’s complexity, compares it to an average score for your top 10 rivals in Google rankings and assigns a readability score to target.
  • Get recommendation on word countSEO Writing Assistant sets you a goal according to the average word count of your rivals’ content and calculates the approximate reading time of your copy.
  • Optimize your titleThe tool warns you about the absence of a title and will advise whether it complies with Google’s guidelines.
  • Make sure your copy is easy to readSEO Writing Assistant identifies hard to read sentences, long words, and paragraphs in your copy.

Maintain Your Brand’s Tone of Voice in Each Content Piece

A brand’s tone of voice is extremely important when it comes to creating content and communicating with your audience online. And the key is consistency.

SEO Writing Assistant helps you to make sure that every content piece complies with your overall brand voice. Select the preferable tone of voice goal — casual, neutral or formal — or let our algorithm identify it.

Not only can you see where your text lies on this scale, but you can also see your most casual and most formal sentences that stand out from the overall text, so you can modify them to suit the overall tone of the piece.

The Tone of Voice feature is powered by a machine-learning algorithm and thousands of human-rated pieces of text.

Check Your Content for Originality with Plagiarism Checker
