Overall Satisfaction with Clearscope

Working with freelance authors is a reality when you need to scale a blog with subject matter experts. And, as many SEOs can attest, it's HARD to teach freelance writers to keyword optimize what they're writing without sounding like awkward robots. Enter Clearscope. I was skeptical of Clearscope at first as a veteran SEO content writer. Then, I started seeing results. Our freelancers were producing content that only needed minor keyword tweaks, and we're ranking better than the ones I was hand optimizing. Not only did this free up quite a bit of my time and brain power, but it also made re-optimization and updating articles a breeze. Then, it just kept getting better! Clearscope has added so much neat functionality over the years without losing its original charm. I can still get that rush from an A++ rating, but the keyword recommendations are bounds and leaps better than they were 5 years ago. Keyword research is more intuitive and robust than some top SEO programs out there. AND it's easy to use. Training takes a few hours, and then your writers can run with it. I've ported Clearscope over to 3 companies so far, and recommend it to anyone doing content marketing. It's the first tool I ask for when I start a new position and honestly haven't found anything better. (At this price point or anywhere else.)

Clearscope shines if you're using freelance writers or even just need a way to easily keyword optimize long-form content. While it can be used for marketing pages, I've found it does best with longer-form blog content in the hands of writers. So, if you have inexperienced writers or those less savvy/comfortable about SEO optimization, I'd recommend only using it for blogs. articles or other long-form content. Have some SEO experience under your belt? Use it for EVERYTHING that needs keyword optimization and is over 300 words. It'll help give you ideas and give you a better idea of how to work in that semantic SEO.
