Scribe SEO for WordPress

by fouts

I thought I knew quite a bit about search engine optimization until I found this nifty new tool called Scribe. Even though I optimize sites for search engines as part of my daily duties, it can be tedious and there is always more to learn. Unless you do this for a living it’s probably not the central part of your day now is it?

So how do you learn SEO techniques and see how it relates to your own content online? If you’re like me, you want to get your hands dirty and see SEO best practices as they apply to your actual content instead of reading an e-book and then trying to see how it relates to what you do.

That’s where Scribe comes in. Install the plugin, write your content and analyze it to see how to fine tune it for search engine optimization, learn some best practices and really get an understanding of how all this works. Analyze it again until you gt the results you’re looking for.

Here’s a video I put together to show you how it works on a post and what I do when I use it in WordPress.

You can also use Scribe with other types of sites and here are videos for Scribe for Joomla, and Scribe for Drupal too.

When you consider what it can cost to hire a web copywriter who understands SEO this plugin is quite the deal. How does that old proverb go? “Teach a girl to fish”??

Anyway, here’s a link to Scribe Plans and Prices

    Janet: Thanks for this outstanding review of Scribe! I've seen many people recommend it, but hadn't yet investigated it myself.

    The Scribe FAQ page (http://scribeseo.com/faq/) notes that the Thesis theme isn't required if the WP blog includes the All-in-One SEO plugin, which is what I'm using on a new blog I'm about to launch.

    Perfect timing; I'm buying it right now (using your affiliate link)!

    Yeah I'm pretty jazzed about it and there are new features coming out the end of the month that will be awesome too. I wish it worked with just Platinum SEO cuz I prefer that to Allinone SEO but most of my sites are in Thesis these days anyway. Have fun!

    But it seems like they are suggesting basic SEO tips which are familiar to many. I think this can be a useful tool only for newbies,what say?

    It's true they're teaching you basic SEO but even somebody who gets SEO can learn something from the feedback and the combination of title, keywords and other optimization techniques. It helps you keep from being lazy about it too!

    I really like Scribe SEO for that fact. You can sometimes get a little lazy and cut a corner here and there. Scribe SEO keeps you honest.

    I also love the fact that you can use it as a self education tool. Its a great piece of software for newbies.

    Yep, it helps keep me from getting lazy about SEO.

    I’ve recommended it to those who choose not to have an SEO review their content. Like so many SEO tools, however, you get out of it what you put into it. While Scribe can save you some time in the “learning” department, you still have to spend the necessary time in the “implementation” department and some people just don’t want to spend that time.

    I agree, if you don’t use it and learn from it then the whole thing is pointless!

    So far I’ve restrained myself to downloading and installing plugins ONLY through the built-in WordPress utility. (and done enough damage just whith those!) Boy am I glad I didn’t run into THAT one. Thanks for the heads-up… I’m off to paint this warning in my barn.
