General Questions

I don't have any content yet, can I still use this tool?

Yes absolutely! Select none as an option instead of URL or content and you can run TF-IDF analysis for your target keyword and get the list of all important terms related to that keyword.

We think this will help you get a list before you even start writing content, so you can make sure not to miss any important category or sub-category.

 

I have very little content, will this tool still be useful?

For content analysis we recommend a minimum of 500 words. In our beta tests, content analysis below this threshold was not very useful.

Alternately if you have less than 500 words, you can select none as an option instead of content and do a TF-IDF analysis on competitors content to get a list of important terms.

This may help you get more ideas for more content and then you can do further content analysis after you've crossed about 500 words.

 

How do you compare to other content optimization tools?

We are a specialized tool for content relevance and focus only on that. We have used our proprietary version of TF-IDF and honed our algorithm to be the best TF-IDF variant out there.

 

What languages do you support?

We currently support English. We are actively working on supporting other user requested languages.

If there is a particular language of interest to you, please send us an email at support@tfidftool.com.

Let us know if you'd like to be included in the beta testing group for the language of your choice.

 

What countries do you support?

We get ranking data for all countries that Google supports. Simply enter the country of choice when running the analysis. However are results are only supported for English at this time.

 

Questions on Analysis

What are the different scores shown?

We show you three scores for each term -

1. The average score of the top 20

2. Maximum score of the top 5

3. Your score

We show these scores for each of the top terms found in the analysis. We use these scores to give you recommendations on where your score should be.

Ideally your score should be somewhere between the average of the top 20 and less than the maximum of the top 5.

 

How to improve TF-IDF scores?

We give you recommendations on where your scores should be. We clearly point out terms you may have missed entirely and terms that need improvement and how to achieve that.

 

How do I go about using the insights to improve my relevance?

We recommend starting with Missed Opportunity and incorporating two and three word terms from that list into your content. Use only terms that make sense to you. We do not recommend trying to achieve a certain count of these terms in your content. As long as they are there you are increasing your relevance. We do not place that much emphasis on word count and keyword count as these are outdated concepts. We recommend aiming for high quality content and using terms that flow naturally. If one of the Missed Opportunity terms does not seem right to you, do not use it.

Once you are done with incorporating Missed Opportunity terms, re run the analysis. Now you can move on to Potential Penalty and Needs Improvement.

 

When I run an analysis without a URL or content why do some terms show as Needs Improvement? Shouldn't everything be Missed Opportunity?

We consider something as a truly Missed Opportunity if the term has a high score for average of top 20 as well as top 5. Some terms may be used by top 20 sites but not necessarily by the top 5, we don't consider such terms as Missed Opportunity and therefore flag them as Needs Improvement.

 

Based on the score how do I figure out how many number of times to use the term?

These are relevance scores and not keyword density scores so they don't directly translate into number of times to use a term. For some of them using just once or twice will change the relevance score and will move your score in the correct direction.

We recommend writing your content using Missed Opportunity terms as many times as they naturally fit and then re analyzing your content. You can use our content editor to change your content and analyze it again.
