Frase Content Optimisation

There are multiple parameters on which you can optimize.

Example – You can evaluate the comprehensiveness of your Content on basis of Top Topics, Long tail keywords, Titles, headers, Blacklist topics, and SERP Scores. 

Now – Let’s understand what’s happening here :

Frase compares your article with the top 20 Content that is ranking on SERPS and helps you Optimise so that you have a better chance of performing.

This feature helps the user to identify the gaps in the content based on keywords and SERP results. 

Here – You get a Score.

See Below: I have a score of 42%

frase

So – What does this Score from Frase means?

This score of 42% says that my content has coverage of 42% of the long tail keywords used by the top 20 ranking pages.

Frase Suggests the Long Tail keywords that I should Use – See the Image below :

Frase also show how many time I have used a Long tail keyword vs sources from top 20 ranking pages

Eg: Keyword Surfer SEO: I have used 3 times while Sources have used 6 times. Thus, it is underused ( yellow color) and Frase is prompting me to use it more.

Using this feature the content writers can work on bridging these keywords gaps and optimize the content for SEO.

Pros and Cons of Frase IO

Like every tool, even Frase has some drawbacks. Let’s have a look at the Pros and cons of Frase. 

Pro 

  • Frase Answer Engine 

This feature by Frase is a gram changer as it interacts with website visitors in real-time 24X7 and with the Hubspot Integration, it can help to collect and nurture leads. 

  • Integrations 

Apart from the Hubspot integrations, the WordPress and Google search console interactions make it aeries for the user to publish and track the content.

Cons and Missing functionality 

  • Frase doesn’t give Keyword data with any of its plans

To get the keywords data, the SEO add-on has to be purchased separately with a monthly subscription.

  • Doesn’t have an inbuilt Plagiarism checker

Another missing functionality can be the lack of an inbuilt plagiarism checker in the Frase Documents. For Content-creation tools like Frase, a Plagiarism checker is a necessity. 

Frase Alternatives

Lets now look at some of Frase’s Alternatives :

1. Frase vs Surfer SEO

frase vs Surfer seo

The major difference is that while Surfer SEO is an All in one SEO and Content optimization tool that focuses on SEO, Frase is first and foremost a content writing tool. 

The SEO features of the tool come in separately with the SEO add-on. So if you as looking for a tool that focuses on SEO, Surfer SEO is the tool for you.

In terms of pricing, both the tools are almost the same but Frase is slightly cheaper.

2. Frase vs Jasper AI

frase

Jasper AI is an AI Content writing tool and most of the features in Frase and Jasper same. 

What makes them different is that in addition to other features Jasper also has a feature for Content improver. With this Jasper analyzes your existing content and gives suggestions to make it better. 

One feature that gives Frase the upper hand on Jasper ai is the Content Briefs.

 While Frase can create content briefs from a single keyword, there is no such feature in Jasper. 

Also in Jasper, the long-form content creation tool is only available with their Boss plan, which is not the case with Frase.
