First Up we have the Content editor from Surfer

Plus it’s fun while marking keywords green! Hack / Tip: Share your Content Editor or work directly in Wordpress / Google Docs!

Next we have Surfer’s Content Planner Who’s this tool for: People who create content strategies or simply are looking for content ideas Why we love it: It's backed with advanced algorithms, machine learning, and years of experience. We love that because it structures content strategy, establishes clusters automatically, and analyzes search intent and keyword difficulty. Plus, we have dozens of ideas on how to improve the tool in the future! So, we’re just getting started. Here’s a tip: Integrate google search console to get Relative Difficulty as well!

Next up we have Surfer’s Audit Who’s it for: Anyone who loves to optimize. And you know what? Everyone should love to optimize Why we love it because it helps pick low hanging fruits to optimize.
