Content and the Digital World
Everything we see on the internet is content, and it leaves an impact on the user. As a writer, your focus is not only on informing, educating, or entertaining your readers but also on creating mistake-free writing, SEO-optimized posts, and original content.
While every writer needs to know how to do basic edits, understand the importance of keywords and plagiarism, there are some tools that will help you create excellent content.
Which Tools Create Better Content?
How do you determine whether a tool is efficient or not? Here are some key points to determine whether a tool is efficient or not.
- User interface
These are some essential key points to consider while picking a tool for writing the content. Using any or all of these tools will help you create better content.
Top 5 Tools to Consider
1. Plagiarism Detector
Plagiarism is using someone else words without giving them credit, making your content dishonest and can cause you legal issues.
One of the most beneficial tools for writing content is a plagiarism detector. Many are out there; some are free, and others have a nominal cost. You enter your text, and the checker references any duplicate content.
2. Paraphrasing Tool
Paraphrasing means rearranging the words and phrases without changing the actual meaning. You can rephrase someone’s words into your terms through the paraphrasing tool without changing the intent.
Rearrangement of the words is an essential technique in communication, so you can use someone’s knowledge without stealing and copying it. Paraphrasing can be beneficial when you include scientific information in non-specialists’ terms for your readers.
Another application for a paraphrasing tool is when you must write your content at a specific grade or age level. In WordPress, you’ll get a readability score, and you may need to reconsider the hard-to-read or arcane vocabulary you’ve used and edit for clarification. A paraphrasing tool can help you with that readability score issue.
3. Grammar Checker
A grammar checker helps you see the spelling, grammar, syntax, tense, and punctuation mistakes you made when writing your first draft.
Typically, you’ll insert your content; then, the grammar checker will highlight any issues.
4. Text Editor
A text editor is a computer program that lets users enter, change, store, and usually print text. Typically, a text editor provides an “empty” display screen (or “scrollable page”) with a fixed-line length and visible line numbers.
There are different text editors available in the market for writing the content, which provides editing options such as text theme, font sizes, design, and layout changes.
5. Keyword Density Checker
Keyword density checkers evaluate the number of keywords in the content. If you are writing on a WordPress site, there is an SEO calculator where you list your keyword and synonyms. It then gives you a score based on how often you used these words in your content. Knowing your keyword density is essential for SEO.
When SEO was still an emerging discipline, a technique known as “keyword stuffing” became very popular. Keyword stuffing is cramming as many keywords as possible on a web page, often resulting in forced and unnatural word patterns.
Using your keyword(s) too often or inappropriately is never a good practice.
Can You Add to the Information?
“It may not be the problem that’s the problem. Rather, the problem might be the tool that I’m using to try and solve the problem.”―
Content writing is all about unique and original work, and any or all of these tools can help you create excellent content, but I’m sure that you have additional tools you use to correct your content writing problems.
If you’re aware of other content tools that can help a writer or blogger, let me know in the comments. Thanks.
