NLP Topic Analysis
Understand your topic beyond simple keyword matches
Ranking on Google is no longer a paint by numbers affair.
Gone are the days of picking the keywords with the highest volumes, churning out endless reams of content and expecting great results.
Now you need to show Google that your
content is of a high enough quality.
This means in depth, well researched articles, not 100s of pages of fluff.
Google has invested heavily in machine learning and entity analysis to truly understand what pages answer their searcher's questions. It's no longer enough to just throw some related terms into your headers. You need to show that you are a comprehensive resource that can support the visitor throughout their searcher journey.
But how do you get the expert topic knowlege your clients need for their website in good time?
Discover the topics you need to be relevant
If you were a travel guide you might like to appear for a search such as ' Things to do in Paris'. Old school SEOs would suggest cramming in as many variations of 'places to see, sightseeing, things to do' etc as you can into your title and subheadings.
But Google has moved on - simply stuffing pages with different synonyms is not enough to compete. Google's work on the knowlege graph, combined with Natural Language Processing, means they understand 'Things' - the entities, topics and ideas that are associated with a search.
For example, Google is advanced enough to understand that an article on Paris Sightseeing needs to mention the Eiffel Tower, the Lourve and Notre Damme. A guide to the best credit cards is incomplete without discussing debt, repayments and credit scores.
Old fashioned keyword tools that are based on matching phrases
containing specific words aren't good enough. They won't include these
terms in their suggested searches.
And unless you're already an expert in all the niches you work in it's likely you'll miss some of them too.
Leverage your competitors research
Our service will scan the top 30 results for your keywords and pass
them through an advanced NLP analysis, powered by

We then help
you compare your content against the
top ranked pages in your niche, to make sure your coverage of a topic is
comprehensive enough to compete. Our
SEO content editor is a powerful tool to optimize your content to the same level of quality as your competitors.
