Squirrly SEO

Squirrly SEO is especially suited for a WordPress website owner wanting to up their SEO game, but not knowing where to start. Squirrly does a great job of walking a beginner user through the steps to meet their site optimization goals one focus page at a time. Once, you get over the dated UI Squirrly really offers more than other WordPress SEO plugins.

Textmetrics (formerly Webtexttool)

I honestly can't think of a scenario where WebTextTool (TextMetrics) would not be valuable for anyone writing content intended for publishing either online or in print media. If the intent is for print media, then even if you completely ignore the SEO section of the analysis, all of the other analysis tools intended for content are incredibly insightful and helpful. These days, even print media almost always ends up online in some form or another on the publisher's website or in a digital format of the publication. So the SEO tools can still give a little boost in reworking or rewording some parts to make sure they will be effective not only in print but online as well.

Cons

Squirrly SEO

  • It could have better training materials as it was quite hard to figure out what to do the first time
  • Plus they seem not to segment their list as I get sales messages to buy
Paul K Saunders | TrustRadius Reviewer

Textmetrics (formerly Webtexttool)

  • WebTextTool (TextMetrics) assumes that each uploaded or typed in the article is intended for online publishing, mostly in a blog type environment. While this is a perfectly understandable assumption in this day and age, it shouldn't be so difficult to ask the question of whether the content is intended for online or print media.
  • The "Credibility" section tends to be a little too harsh for my taste. Depending on the style of writing and the type of content, "too many adjectives" is too subjective a metric to apply to all writing ( still, I do get why they try to do it).
  • This is a little nitpicky, but I'd prefer to see how many projects and credits I have left to use on the dashboard page as opposed to having to click over to my account. A dashboard should show everything that a user needs to see in one shot.

I only had to reach out to TexMetrics once when initially getting my account setup after signing up. The response was swift, and they addressed my question completely. I've had no other issues since I began using TextMetrics, so based on that one interaction, I have to give them a great score. I assume that it is still the same as when I reached out that one time (at least I hope it is!).

Alternatives Considered

Squirrly SEO

Yoast and Rankmath offer some great WordPress optimization features, however, Squirrly SEO takes it to the next level. Having their live assistant, keyword, and other optimization tools baked into WordPress make it easy to set up and work your way through optimizing your site. Being able to have your normal WordPress users as a team makes it an easy win vs many other SEO tools with expensive team plans.

WebTextTool plugin works like a charm, but it should better integrate with Yoast, as it would create a huge benefit.
