Overview
SEO Writing Assistant is an extension that provides instant recommendations for content optimization based on the best-performing articles in Google top 10. Content professionals, bloggers and marketing experts can check if their texts or the texts of external writers meet various content-quality requirements in just a few clicks.

Features
- Overall score - checks the article’s general quality calculated according
to metrics such as readability, text length, and target keywords. 
- Readability score - evaluates your text’s difficulty based on the
recommended Flesch-Kincaid reading-ease score. You will get recommendations for sentences and words that need improvement.
- Target keywords - shows recommendations regarding the given keywords, their volume and their difficulty. 
- Recommended keywords - shows semantically related keywords, that should also be added to your text.
- Plagiarism - validate that your writer has submitted original content.

The extension is designed for Google Docs and requires registration with SEMrush to generate recommendations for particular text. Users who have access to text with previously generated recommendations will see it automatically without registration.

Is it free?
With a free SEMrush account, you can create one template. Paid accounts have different keyword budgets depending on the subscription plan.

My first splash with this software was not something I'd call glorious, and I don't think I'll lay the whole ehhhh feeling at the keyboard of 'being old school'. After my boss and I went through what I'd put together on my own Th. before the weekend-- and he *liked* my style as close to his, a lot of highlighted elements in a good way-- it showed my product as written at a college reading level. He wants to shoot for essentially 8th grade. It was rated at 2/10 = Poor readibility. Starting at 40, needed to 'simplify' to 65 level. 8 hours later, boss liked how I'd amped the overriding hook (superhero), making it relevant every step, I *still* had only gotten to 48.5. I've got plenty of confidence in my ability to make things work better, but at no point did I get to LESS than 11 sentences that 'read too difficult,' and that I don't concur with. I'm not using egghead words, and two lines and one word always comes as too difficult. Nope, its not me, its algorithms.

A lot of reviewers have been complaining about the limits for using the trial version of this service, but I definitely think it's worth the costs. The tool has not only helped me optimize my SEO articles, it has also helped me improve as an SEO writer. The keywords that it highlights also helps me in researching my topics - and given the amount I need to research and write each day, a limited trial version simply wouldn't suit me. It may be good to offer the writing assistant as a separate tool, but honestly I think the rest of the SEMrush service also offers a high level of quality, especially when it comes to assessing website health. All in all, a great tool that is worth the cost - I'd definitely recommend it.

Been using it when writing blog posts on WordPress. Works well. Exceptional feedback, and recommendations on important words, phrases and concepts to include in the post. It has made my writing style much more holistic. We have noticed better traction on our posts that rank well with the SWA score. I absolutely love this tool! Great work SEMRush!

I'd have given it 5 stars if: > If I could use for more than just one "template." > If I could delete the template I no longer need and create a new one without having to pay 99$/month. > If the add-on was offered as a stand-alone product at a more affordable monthly or annual cost. > If SEMrush offered the add-on at a more affordable monthly cost - I cannot justify 99/month for the few times I'd use it. QUESTION: Is there a way to delete the old template and create a new one on the free plan?

Hi, Summer I'm afraid there is no such capability. The free option is mainly intended as a demo and not for regular use

i'm sure it could be helpful to those on a paid plan, but i had to go through multiple steps to register at semrush to use a free extension only to find out i have reached a trial limit after one template... not cool.
