Pros: New Content Development
- For a given keyword, Clearscope pulls an easy to read report of keywords that should be included in a new piece of content, and how frequently - this makes it extremely easy for a writer (freelance or in house) to follow in order to deliver algorithmically strong SEO. Now, you just have to proof for editorial / voice, knowing it's strong content that has a better chance of ranking.
- Additionally, it gives you the top quality content that's already out there so that you and your writers know what you're up against, and get insight into the tone, voice, etc.
- At the end of it all, you can throw the content the writer wrote into the tool to see it's SEO grade.

Existing Content:
- Have existing content that you want to optimize and get more traffic to? Run it through the tool, see recommendations, and send it to get edited.

The tool also has a powerful keyword research / recommendation engine.

In summary: huge time saver and accuracy booster to help make content development and optimization turnkey. Also, working with the team is extraordinary. Some of the best support I've ever had. They also help you understand how to use the tool to maximize impact, rather than just having the subscription. Strong general SEO context is also a huge bonus.

Cons: Everything that comes to mind is really just out of personal preference for experience or aesh
- The UI is clean, but could potentially be more modern.
- Could be more distinct visual difference between the general keyword research tool (no limit on usage) and the keyword optimization tool (currently credit-based) to prevent user error.

Overall: Easy to use tool to help inform SEO-driven content creation and streamline the creation process. Also easy to optimize existing content.

Pros: I love how Clearscope reverse engineers what's already ranking on Google for any given keyword, then shows all the relevant terms I need to include to create a search-engine friendly article. Before, I used to type a keyword into Google, eyeball the results, then make an educated guess about what kind of content would be relevant and important to write about. I don't do that anymore because I use Clearscope. This saves me time and energy, and even better, it's more accurate than what I used to do.

I added the tool into the writing process for our internal team and freelance writers to make sure we know which relevant terms to include from the beginning. We've used Clearscope when creating content from scratch, and also to rewrite existing content that didn't have a good optimization score. We've seen major gains in both.

I also use their keyword research tool in my planning/strategy phase so that's been helpful.

Cons: I think they could add a helpful feature to let you know when your content went down a grade, so you can make updates to keep your stuff relevant. That's minor though. The core functionality is solid and I couldn't be happier.

Overall: Saves time in my content creation process. Helps create search-friendly articles. Higher rankings in Google search results. Useful and pretty reports.

Pros: Ever since we rebuilt our SEO and Content Marketing effort around Clearscope, we started seeing much faster compounding growth.

- One of the best keyword research tools. We use it along with Gooogle Keyword Planner and Ahrefs

- Best in class content report & optimization

- Great & responsive customer support and onboarding

Here's why content optimization with Clearscope is game changing:

1. Best in class. Literally, no other service comes close with respect to telling you what keywords & topics to cover to maximize your chances of ranking for a given keyword

2. We've eliminated the need for an SEO to go over our author's work. Clearscope is so easy that our authors are using it directly. As a result, our content ranks better and reads a lot better.

Cons: Clearscope is fantastic and we don't have any issues with it. We use Clearscope to optimize every single piece of content we publish.

Seamless, effective, and efficient.

Pros: Clearscope lives up to its name, truly clearing the scope of content down to the most important and vital terms to tackle so you can begin to rank in search results immediately. The approach and interface is simple and easy to understand, whether you're an SEO expert or novice. The customer support team always responds promptly and sends timely updates when needed.

Cons: I have essentially no complaints about Clearscope, except for one: some suggested terms are not always applicable to the content at hand. That, of course, isn't a deal-breaker.

Overall: Our SEO search traffic has consistently grown at least 30% month to month, and it is through an intricate process we developed using Clearscope.

Pros: This is far beyond any other keyword research tool I've ever used. It has great reporting and a nice keyword analysis tool, but I get the most value from the real-time editor. It allows you to compose or edit an article and watch its score improve instantly, without hitting save or taking any action. In the past I used real-time analysis tools like Hemingway to help with readability, but this takes it a step further to make sure I'm hitting all the relevant topics that will answer searchers' questions when I write or update an article.

Overall: We've seen significant search traffic improvement to old posts after editing them in Clearscope. Also, it's a great tool for outlining and drafting new articles to make sure the content is well-aligned with search intent. The cost is somewhat high, but I haven't found anything else like it, so I think it's well worth the price. At first I thought I might sign up for a month, use up all the reports, then cancel and stop paying for it. But I'm getting so much ongoing value from it that I've been happily paying for months now.

Pros: It makes it super easy to work with freelancers to make sure that you're creating articles that have a good potential to rank for their target keywords. Creating article outlines from Clearscope reports has made it simple for us to be sure that we're doing good optimizations on old content, and creating great new content.

Cons: The price per report feels high. I understand that it's complicated technology, but I think most businesses would have a hard time justifying the price point for SEO software that limits their use this much. It's ROI positive for us, though.

Pros: Intuitive right out of the box. From running reports to modifying your content, it's really simple to use and the insights are easy to put into action. I've seen other tools attempt this type of analysis before, but it's either too convoluted or sloppily made. Clearscope has it dialed in definitely a tool you want in your SEO arsenal.

Cons: It's still a relatively new software, so obviously there is still more to build. The silver lining to this is that the team at Clearscope is very responsive and very open to feedback, so whenever I've requested something or reported a bug, they've responded and addressed the concern right away.

Pros: Clearscope is an extremely effective tool that helps me speed up the writing process and ensures I include relevant and related keywords from the start to produce better content. As a result, it helps the editors I work with save time since I've already used Clearscope to optimize the content before submitting. It's also allowed me to improve existing content on the sites I manage. Plus, the customer service is beyond what you'll get with any other tool-Bernard has been super helpful from day one.

Cons: The pricing structure was initially, but I think returns will increase as my experience does. It'll be interesting to see what other features they add.

Overall: I've been able to save time and feel more confident that the content I'm producing is highly relevant and optimized for SEO.

Pros: A smart/strategic approach to identifying new content opportunities and for optimizing existing content. We use it for our blog and product descriptions.

Clearscope was amazing and onboarding the team and showing us the process and providing the documentation we'd need to successful.

Since using it, our blog readership has gone up 50%+ , sales have increased and our search rankings have increase due to the tool.

Cons: Overall we love the tool - they continue to add new features and functionality which is amazing. Only potential drawback is you can only create 100 reports a month, but we use the tool A LOT and still haven't maximized our limit.

Overall: We use the tool to identify content opportunities and to SEO optimize existing web pages.

- Their team is very responsive and flexible in terms of specific demands
- Setup is incredibly easy and the tool can be used in seconds after purchasing a license
- The tool itself works very fast and is already providing results to some of our clients
- More and more features are added, based on client feedback

Cons: - The pricing structure is somewhat strict at first and may seem expensive for inexperienced SEOs, but works like a charm once correctly understood

Pros: Very easy to use and delivers results very fast. Whenever we're creating a cornerstone piece of content and need to make sure we have our SEO on-point, then Clearscope is a must use for our team. We consistently get high page 1 rankings for our targeted keywords. I don't think it's an accident we went from 70 #1 ranks to 140 so quickly.

We are using Clearscope to increase site traffic and to develop content strategies.

Pros: Easy to use. The dashboards for keyword search, report generation and content optimization are very user friendly, even for beginners.

Cons: I would like to see analytics developed as a dashboard feature so it's easy to see results, post-optimization.

Overall: Since we've only been using the product for just over a month, I think it's too soon to make a benefits determination. It has made it much easier for me to see search information and to develop content. The customer service is beyond good - it's super and goes well beyond simple FAQ or "how-to" information.

Helps make it really easy to arm the content team with tips for SEO.

Pros: Clearscope is like having a SEO specialist on the team without having to put everyone through training. The software is really easy to use, the team loves using it, and it works.

Cons: The software can be a little slow when loading up results for optimization. It's not excruciating slow, it's just the thing that is least enjoyed by the team.

The software works, and I'm just finding something where I can be critical.

Overall: It helps us create better content that can be found by our target audience.

Pros: I can finally get data-driven visibility into the content that my outsourced writing team creates. This has allowed us to scale content effectively, and take the top spots on Google for a variety of keywords that has driven good revenue for our business. All this has happened, despite our web property being relatively new (Overall: I believe this is a must-have tool for any company who invests in content at any reasonable cadence (eg. 1 blog post per week).

Pros: Easy to use and extremely effective - Clearscope is a remarkably effective tool to help content marketers to optimize their blog content for SEO (particularly from a semantic search perspective)

Cons: As great as this software is, the monthly fees are very high. This certainly holds back smaller marketing teams from signing up. However, those who can afford the software will quickly see a positive ROI for this investment

Pros: It's a tool built by and for SEOs. They were in the SEO field before taking what they knew and deciding to build a tool around their processes to sell to other SEOs. This experience and knowledge of what SEOs wants shows within their product as a result that often the larger enterprise tools don't have.

Cons: It's still fairly early in its development (given the small size of the company), and would love more features around account management and tie-ins to common CMS's to help automate more of the process with companies/clients.

Overall: More efficiency in my work processes

Pros: It lists all the relevant keywords and makes sure you're making your post the most SEO-friendly possible. It has a no-frills text editor and is easy to use.

Cons: - It could take a page from the Hemingwayapp and highlight which sentences are affecting the reading level grade.

- Some keywords aren't relevant to the post you're writing but it's pretty merciless and won't give you a good grade until you include them. I was writing a post about "teamwork software" and Clearscope insisted I include the names of competitors (which the client explicitly said not to) and terms like "teamworkpm" which just make no sense.

Overall: I was able to give a highly seo-optimized post to a client who swears by clearscope.

Clearscope is hands down the most powerful SEO/content optimization tool I have ever used.

Pros: Clearscope makes it extremely easy to optimize your content, removing much of the manual research and work you would normally need to do, and having the keyword research feature right there within in the same tool is really convenient and efficient.

Anytime I or my team have any questions, Bernard is always there to teach and help us get the most out of Clearscope.

I also like the keyword research part of the tool. It's easy to use, and saves a lot of time.

Cons: I think the price point on this tool is a little high. I understand why it is priced the way it is, but wish there was an unlimited option to the reports.

Pros: The best feature in my opinion is being able to optimize my content with the suggested keyterms, I love being able to grade the content and knowing the readability

Cons: From what understand - I have to look up a keyword - and then click "optimize" to add the content. I may be missing something and there might be an easier way - I'm just not aware!

I may also not know how to do this - but it would be so easier if when I exported a report - it wouldopen directly in google sheets. I have to import it into google now and its quite tedious
