What is Semantic SEO?
Semantic SEO involves making web content more meaningful and topical. You're aiming to create in-depth content, a one-stop solution so that the reader doesn't have to go to another website for more answers.
With Semantic SEO content, Google crawlers can understand your content better. As a result, search engines promote it more often in the SERPs since they perceive it as high-quality.
LongShot’s Semantic SEO feature
When you research any topic and calculate its Semantic SEO score, LongShot’s AI suggests a Semantic score for your content, in addition to that of your competitors,
This Semantic score is based on your content quality for the ‘People Also Asked’ questions. These questions help you discover and answer related keywords to the topic. It also enables you to create helpful content for the user.
Your score tells how well your existing content answers these questions. The higher the score, the better the chances of your content doing well. You can find the Semantic SEO feature on the right side of the Blog editor inside the General section.
Earlier the scoring was done by grading your content for various questions, from A+ to D.
Now, you can see a numerical score out of 100 for your content. Your score is an aggregate of all your scores for different ‘People Also Asked’ questions.
When you click on 'expand', you arrive at this prompt where you can see the Semantic SEO score of the top-rated SERP pages, all other competitors, and your overall Semantic ranking.
You can still find the grades in the top-rated and all competitors sections, except the Semantic ranking section. You can see your content scores on these respective tabs.
Finally, we arrive at the newest addition to the Semantic ranking tab. This is where you can see your content score (out of 100) against your top 5 competitors for that keyword.
So, the higher the score, the better the chances of your content doing well.
