Step 2. Open the "SEO & Readability" view. Here you can track how well your story is doing in terms of SEO and readability.

The AI will analyze how much competitive potential the focus keyword has. Before suggesting topics, an automated AI process categorizes top Google search result URLs (articles, company web pages, e-commerce, socials, definitions, or others).

What is a keyword?
A (focus) keyword or a sequence of keywords represents the essence of your page or post. It's the search query you aim to rank for with that specific content. This way, when users search for that keyword on Google or other search engines, they can locate the relevant page on your website.
Think of it as a line of words that summarises what your story is about. If you're writing about tips and tricks about preparing for a marathon, for instance, then "marathon" would not be a great keyword, while "marathon preparation" would be better, and "tips to optimise your marathon preparation" would be better still.
How to create an amazing sequence of keywords?
If your focus keyword is something very broad, the results will be very broad too. That means that a lot of them might not even be relevant to your stories.
Alternatively, if you create very specific keyword(s), the results will be very suitable for your story.
Broad keyword: "Marathon"
Specific sequence of keywords: "tips to optimise your marathon preparation"
You see below that the results are very different and that the second one will score better for the audience you have in mind. This will also show in the SEO score and ranking.
