Let us take a good look at some of NeuronWriter’s core features.
1. Competitor Analysis/SERP Analysis
Once you enter a keyword into the interface of NeuronWriter, you will be presented with a few various tabs. “TOP Analysis” is the tab that you will learn about here.
The moment you click on “TOP Analysis,” you will be taken to a screen labeled “Competition,” displaying an overview of the keyword difficulty score, together with core on-page and off-page data points (taken from Moz) for all the top 10 competitors within the SERP.
Here are the specific data points displayed.
For on-page metrics:
- Content score
- Page title
- Content length (characters)
- Word count
- Readability score
For off-page metrics:
- Moz page authority
- Moz domain authority
- Moz page MozRank
- Moz page external links
Overall, this provides an incredible overview of the SERP in terms of which competitors are succeeding based on on-page and off-page SEO.
NeuronWriter also provides a content optimization checklist, for users who want to see how optimized their page is as a whole.
However, if you want a more specific data visualization, you can head over to the “Competitors – breakdown” tab.
It essentially lets you visualize and overlay data points on a graph, presenting all of the SERP competitors, for the purpose of correlational analysis. Indeed, this is very useful.
Unlike other on-page SEO optimization tools, NeuronWriter provides specific off-page data, on a page and domain level, making competitor analysis a whole lot easier. This way, you can find out if a page could be ranking because of its backlink profile instead of the quality of its content. This is a vital aspect so you can filter out these URLs when performing on-page optimizations.
NeuronWriter is comparable to Surfer SEO when it comes to off-page SEO data presentation to users in this format, but Surfer SEO is more expensive. NeuronWriter, aside from the fact that it is more affordable, has a lot of potential from its competitors.
2. Content Planning And Article Drafting
Those you learned about above are just part of the whole process. Once you have completed the competitor analysis phase, and have chosen the competitors you want NeuronWriter to analyze, you can then let NeuronWriter get to know. You can even grab a cup fo coffee while you wait.
Once it is done processing data, you will be presented with the content editor interface, as you have learned in the previous section of this article.
NeuronWriter users NLP-based semantic models as the basis to evaluate SERP content, so it can create a benchmark for what you need to optimize towards. The semantic models that NeuronWriter uses rely on six pillars, but they do not provide specifics on what these pillars are. However, the company describes how this represents a base layer, and they use further filters and variations to modify the models.
NeuronWriter’s content editor is very clean and user-friendly, with several of the usual options or features that you would expect to see. But some of the nicer options are:
- Counts of the number of H1 & H2 tags
- NLP keyword suggestions
- Specific H1 & H2 keyword recommendations
- Specific paragraph keyword recommendations
- List of questions to answer
- List of competitor’s H1s
- List of competitor’s H2s
- YouTube video ideas
- AI writer (AI Content Generation)
Those are generally about it when it comes to the features of NeuronWriter. Ready to purchase? Let us take a look at the NeuronWriter pricing.
