How does it work?
Let’s login first (Sign Up if you’re new to this tool). You can see the clean and simple interface below.
On the left-hand side, there is a section called “content tool”. And, under this section, you’re getting four features.
- Question research
- Topic Ideas
- Site audit
Starting with the document feature. Now, to create a new task, click on the ‘new document’.
You’ll get three options basically.
- Content brief (for getting a structure of your next blog post)
- Content optimization (For optimizing your existing blog article)
- Content curation (To get all the resources to start with a project)
Let’s select content optimization first. And click next.
Now, select the required field to get started. Enter details like region, the search term that you have targeted in your blog post, and URL of your post that you want to optimize.
After clicking the “create document” button, it will show you suggestions on the right-hand side to improve your post for better ranking and user experience as well.
On the url section, just paste the link of your blog post that you want to optimize using frase.io
Along with the url, also add the search term that you targeted for that blog post.
You can now see the content of my blog post. And, on the right-hand side, there are many topic suggestions to include in my article.
Here, it is simply saying my blog post didn’t cover the topics like quality levels, next phase, and others.
This tool is basically fetching all the information from the top-ranking pages for the search term that I have targeted. And, comparing that information with my article.
This shows me the topics that I haven’t covered in my blog post but many top-ranking pages have included in their pages.
So, that way I can optimize it for better ranking.
Along with this, frase will also show you the structure(including headings and subheadings) of your competitors’ pages.
You’ll also get access to the questions that people are asking on your topic.
So, in case if you’ve missed any questions to cover in your blog post, then you can just go through all of these relevant questions.
Another cool feature it offers is that you’ll be able to see what are the pages that your competitors’ are linking from their site.
You can access all the external links that the top pages have included.
You can also export the whole report in many formats such as pdf, Word, etc.
This was all about the content optimization feature.
Similarly, if you want to get a complete outline for your next blog post you can check the ‘content brief section’ under the document tab.
Here, you just need to enter the search term that you want to target in your next article.
And it will give an outline based on the information collected from top-ranking pages.
Let me show you one example of the content brief feature that I have done for the search query ‘customer avatar’.
In the overview section, you’ll get to learn about the average word count of top-ranking pages for that search term.
Also, it shows you
- What keyword to include in your headline
- Topics that you must cover in your content
- Top links to include as well.
This actually makes your job much easier as a content creator. Before starting writing your content, you can have an overview of what are the topics to cover, what should be the average word length, and many more.
So, basically you can spy on top-ranking pages in just a few seconds.
Below the page, you’ll see a section called, ‘sources’. This section will show the title, domain, and meta description of each of the top-ranking pages.
This is quite useful to see what’s getting better results in search engines.
Even if you’re still not sure about the topic and subtopic for your content then you need a scroll down a little.
And you’ll get a bunch of topics and snippets of each of the high performing pages.
Just like the content optimization, here you can also access the list of questions on the top right side.
Next move on to the ‘content curation’ feature.
Here, you need to add search terms for your content and it will show you content ideas, related questions in your topic.
One cool feature is that it shows you important keywords to add in your content along with its frequency.
On the below image, you can notice that each of the top 10 ranking pages used the term ‘’content strategy’ at least three times in their content.
So, based on this you can actually create better content in terms of topic, headings, links, and even word count.
Another feature that it offers is that you can write your content here and export it directly to other platforms such as WordPress, HubSpot, and many more.
This feature can be helpful for your whole team.
Let’s explore other features of Frase.io
Under the ‘Content tools’ tab, you’ll get a topic idea generation tool and also a site audit.
Site audits will help you in comparing your site with one of your competitors.
Let’s see how you can generate lots of content ideas in just a fraction of time.
Topic Idea generator
First click on the ‘topic ideas’ tab and next, enter the topic. Here I am typing my topic as ‘content marketing tools’.
And now select a sub-topic to generate the content map.
The content map will be generated within a few seconds.
This is a useful feature especially if you’re out of content ideas.
frase answer engine
Now, let’s move to another feature of this tool (answer engine) that helps your website visitors to engage with your site in an effective way.
To do this you need to follow three simple steps.
- Crawl your website by integrating Google Search Console
- Create assistant (It includes your brand message, brand color, Email capturing system, and targeting)
