Overview
For your content to be successful, it needs to be visible and engaging. SEO Writing Assistant—our smart editor tool—ensures that your text ticks both of these boxes by providing recommendations and improvements in real time.

The tool integrates seamlessly with Google Docs and offers key readability and SEO suggestions based on the best-performing content in Google’s SERPs. Whether you’re writing your own copy or editing someone else’s, SEO Writing Assistant makes the end product as impactful and effective as possible—for readers and search engines.

Key Features
- Readability: Use the Flesch-Kincaid score to assess and improve your text’s readability
- Recommended Keywords: Receive semantically related keyword suggestions that can help boost your visibility
- Tone of Voice: Ensure that your tone is smooth and consistent across your text
- Plagiarism Check: Verify that your writer has submitted original content and avoid penalization
- Rephraser: Rework pieces of text to improve quality, target different channels, or overcome writer’s block
- Overall Score: Evaluate and maximize the SEO potential of your text based on key on-page factors

How Does It Work?
The SEO Writing Assistant add-on allows you to write, assess, and edit your text in Google Docs.

To set it up, click “Install” and select your Google account when prompted (you will need to log in if you haven’t already). You’ll be notified when the installation is complete.

You can then use the tool in any Google Docs file under the “Add-ons” tab. Whenever you open a file, simply select “Show” and the tool will pop up as a sidebar in the document.

Limits
To use SEO Writing Assistant, you need to first specify your target keywords. This requires a Semrush account.

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 full access to the powerful Semrush Content Marketing Platform.

Note that your writer does not need to have a Semrush account to use the SWA template that you have created.

Doesn't work. The SWA is free, so you can install this addon which you won't use unless you bought premium

Not very impressed by how bait and switch this is. The tool works well but if you want to use it on more than one document it's $220 per month. It's ABSOLUTELY not clear this is the case. It's the worst kind of example of getting you in the door, then changing the deal.
