SEO Analysis

The SEO analysis tool in the post editor will give you suggestions to improve your post's SEO. It works based on pre-defined rules, inspired by the Rank Math WordPress plugin.

SEO Analysis in Hyvor Blogs


SEO analysis is merely a suggestion. Getting a higher score alone will not make your posts rank high. There are also other factors that affect your SEO, such as backlinks, domain authority, etc. However, these suggestions will help you better optimize your content for search engines.

To start analyzing your post, add a primary keyword for your post. You can also add secondary keywords. Hyvor Blogs will then analyze your post content and metadata and give you suggestions in real-time to improve SEO for your post.

These are the tests that Hyvor Blogs will run on your post:

  • Primary keyword in the title

    • 100% if the primary keyword is at the beginning of the title
    • 75% if the primary keyword is in the first 50 characters of the title
    • 49% if the primary keyword is after the first 50 characters of the title
    • 0% if the primary keyword is not in the title
  • Primary keyword in the description

  • Primary keyword in the slug

    If the primary keyword is blogging platforms, we check for blogging-platforms in the slug. It is recommended to set a short slug with hyphens. In this case, the score will be:

    • 100% if the slug matches exactly blogging-platforms
    • 75% if the slug contains blogging-platforms with other words
  • Primary keyword in the beginning of the content

    If your content is longer than 300 words, the primary keyword should be in the first 10% of the content. If it is shorter than 300 words, it should be somewhere in the content.

  • Content length

    (The best content length depends on the topic, which is not considered here)

    • 0% for less than 400 words
    • 1% for each 25 words after 400 words (2500+ words = 100%)
  • All keywords in the content

    All keywords should be present in the post content.

  • All keywords in subheadings

    Each keyword should be present in at least one subheading (h2, h3, h4, h5, h6).

  • All keywords in image alt attributes

    Each keyword should be present in at least one image alt attribute.

  • Keyword density

    Checks for keyword density in content (keywords count / total words).

    • 0% for less than 0.1%
    • 50% for 0.1% to 0.5%
    • 100% for 0.5% to 2.5%
    • 50% for 2.5% to 5%
    • 0% for more than 5%
  • Slug length

    Shorter slugs are better. This test will pass if the slug is less than 50 characters.

  • External links

    At least one external link should be present in the post.

  • Internal links

    At least one internal link should be present in the post. Links to any subdomain of your main domain will be considered as internal links. See link types for more information. internal-blog, internal-domain, and internal-root-domain links are considered as internal links.

  • Images

    • 70% - 1 image
    • 80% - 2 images
    • 90% - 3 images
    • 100% - 4 or more images
  • All images have alt attributes

    All images should have alt attributes.

The link analysis tool in the post editor analyzes the status of the links in your post as you write. It will show you warding if there are any broken or redirect links in your post. It also shows you the type of each link.
