Adding keywords without generating SEO content briefs
You can also add your own keywords to a content task without necessarily generating the SEO content brief. Keywords can be added manually in the format 'keyword : count' or simply 'keyword'
These keywords will appear in the brief on the content task. You can still generate an SEO content brief after adding keywords to a task, in which case the new keywords generated will be added to the existing list.
Content SEO Score
The content SEO score is a visual scale that shows your content search engine optimization with a grade. The grading goes from C to A+ where C indicates poor SEO, A+ means great content SEO, and the other grades mean your content falls somewhere in between.
The content SEO score uses signals such as the topical relevance of the article, keyword optimization, readability, content length, and structure to give you a content grade.
How does it work?
To use the content SEO score, generate an SEO brief for your content item, and the content score meter will become available on the Brief tab of the task page for you to benchmark your content against. You can always edit the content brief by clicking on the Edit icon next to "Brief" to ensure the SEO score has the right input to compute the score for.
