The folks at Wordtracker, a paid service that is a great tool for discovering and choosing keyword phrases for your web site based on things such as search popularity and competition, pointed out a little Firefox add-on to me recently that some bloggers might find rather handy.
I’ve stated here often that one of the great benefits of blogging as a business tool is that search engines seem to rank blog content very highly. Given that fact, it’s also smart to write your blog content with both reader and spiders in mind. Using important keyword phases in things like your blog titles and blog text is a smart way to get the most bang for your blogging buck.
The Wordtracker Firefox add-on, called SEO Blogger, sits in the browser sidebar as you compose a blog post. Simply put in a keyword or phrase and the tool supplies you with related phrases and recent search volume so you can optimize your blog posts without ever leaving your posting screen. This can be a handy way to gain insight into the exact phrases people are using and even suggest new ways to say some of the things you write about often.
Here’s a quick four step tutorial on how SEO Blogger works.
