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.
- Tone of voice - make sure that your writing is consistent with the desired level of formality.
- Plagiarism - validate that your writer has submitted original content.
- Linking - check your links for possible errors and problems.

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 or Pro Semrush account, you can create one recommendation set (tied to a document) for a lifetime. Higher tier accounts have different keyword budgets depending on the subscription plan, as well as access to the full power of Semrush Content Marketing Platform.

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.

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?

Not good at all. Sure, it recommends KWs, which is great, but several made no sense at all. Then, the recommended length for my KW was 1,300 words -- um, no, that is a novel in the arena I am writing in. I couldn't score above a 3.1 of 10, and to game the system, I simply pasted my content over and over and stuffed recommended KWs. Unsurprisingly, it went to a 6.7. That's not SEO. That is stuffing. This tool needs some serious work!

Does not work! As of writing this review, obviously, I'm connected to the internet. Well, according to the add-on I am not! Don't bother installing, waste of time!

This is an amazing addon if you are an online content builder and marketer. I found it so helpful for the one post I managed to make with it. Here's the rub though... It only has one template as a free user. So once I went to work on one of my other projects, it was useless for me, even within the same niche. I would happily pay a monthly or annual fee just for this addon, but I can't currently justify a $90+ a month investment. I totally understand that one has to make money, but if this and maybe even a few of SEMrush's other tools where able to be paid for separately they might get even more people (myself included) subscribed and turned into paying customers faster. That's why I can't give this 5 stars. It IS an amazing tool, but they labeled it as free and really it should be called a demo.

I absolutely love this extension. It gives me solid information and feedback right there in front of me, and makes the on-page SEO process a science, not a mystery. Thanks for developing this SEMrush! What a great tool!
