One of the popular premium plugins that I know many ProBlogger readers use is Scribe. This plugin (for WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal) is designed to help your posts rank well in search engines—without compromising the quality of your posts.
Developed by the team at CopyBlogger, Scribe has gone through a number of updates that have added new features and functionality.
Today it has been updated to version 3.0, and it now covers pretty much all of the fundamentals of SEO—not just some of them.
Search engine-optimized posts—without compromised readability
The great thing about previous versions (and the new one) is that Scribe doesn’t just create search engine-optimized content: it works with your own content, written for your readers. It works to optimize your unique posts.
This leaves you with compelling and useful content that has been optimized for search engines, rather than search engine-optimized content that doesn’t really help anyone.
In the update, we now have:
- an integrated keyword research tool (meaning you no longer have to use a separate tool)
- a new link-building tool.
These features help you get a little more strategic about your relationship building with other bloggers, and cross-linking your content within your own blog.
Try it free
Scribe is a great tool with many features, but in the end you’ll only really understand it once you try it for yourself. The good thing about Scribe is that while it’s a premium/paid plugin, you can try it free by signing up and then, if you decide it’s not for you, canceling your subscription within the first 30 days and asking for a refund (something they honor every time).
They also have a great limited-time ‘STEPUP’ promotion going on. This lets you increase the number of monthly content evaluations you can access. Details of the offer are on this page.
