search social mediaSo, you’re a writer. Maybe you have your own blog or maybe you write for someone else’s blog. Maybe you’re a journalist. Whatever your line of writing, it’s likely that at least some of it will be on the Internet. If that’s the case, you’re probably quite good at writing about your favourite niches and sticking to what you know. But do you sometimes long to know what it is people are talking about? To have some idea what to write in order to get a little more attention?


Now think about how useful this information would be while you write the post. Instead of thinking about SEO or scanning Twitter hashtags, you can just write. Inbound Writer tells you about related conversations, searches and more while you write. It’s basically monitoring social media and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) keywords on your behalf while you get on with the actual writing. Talk about making things simple!

Free Inbound Writer Signup

If you use Inbound Writer for eight posts per month it’s completely free. If you want to use it for any more posts than that, you can choose to sign up for a monthly plan. Here’s a video showing you how it works.

How To Use Inbound Writer

When you start a post, Inbound Writer asks you to give three words to describe your topic. These words will be used to search social media and search queries for the subject matter.

Then you’ll need to supply a URL for a website with some authoritative information on your subject. You can supply up to three websites – the more you supply the better your writing recommendations will be.

Inbound Writer will then generate some relevant keywords for you to use in the article, according to what people are searching for and talking about in relation to your subject.

The document is given a score as to how well you’ve used the keywords, which is updated as you write. Helpful advice is also given as to whether you’ve over-used your keywords in your writing amongst other things.

All you need to do is to continue writing, take the simple advice given and watch your document’s score go up. When you’re done, your article should be easily found and willingly shared by new audiences via searches and social media.

    Fantastic and very relevant article (at least for me as I deal with SEO). I used to use a now defunct Firefox plugin called Glydo to get current-day news on topics I'm writing. Then I used to use WordPress plugins like BloggerHigh or SEOPressor to get my keywords, keyword density and article length to just the right amount. It looks like Inbound Writer does something similar and I like that. Personally, I would like to see more SEO articles and tool discoveries in MUO. Thank you.
