AI-Backed Keyword Research

Finding great keywords is hard work. When you chase the keywords out of your reach, your pages will never rank in the top ten. Learn how to track down keywords that are within your reach and will bring you the biggest ROI.

Post-Publishing Optimization

Your job is only getting started after you hit ‘publish’. We’ll teach you how to audit your previously published articles, measure your progress, and give you actionable steps to take to optimize your content after it’s been published.

Natural Language Processing

The fundamental goal of communication is to be understood. Knowing which words and phrases to use–and where to place them–will ensure that both Google, and your target audience, enjoy your content. We’ll share little-known insights to enable you to navigate Google’s algorithm with confidence and ease.

Comprehensive Competitor Analysis

How can you compete if you don’t fully understand who you’re in the game with? We’ll teach you how to determine the industry leaders in your sector using Surfer’s cutting-edge tools, what factors are relevant when making comparisons, and how to apply this data to the SERPs. We like a data-backed home court advantage, don’t you?

Stress-Free Content Strategy

Long gone are the days of grueling, mind-numbing strategy sessions. Learn how to use Surfer to create relevant content clusters, and take the guesswork out of your content strategy. Gather hundreds of main and supporting page ideas in minutes to establish yourself as an authority in your respective sector.

Efficient Outline Creation

The best writers will agree that creating an outline to organize your ideas, plan your headings, and answer all the main points is fundamental. That said, the outline creation process can be a real drag. We’ll show you how to use our AI-generated outline builder to ensure that every topic + heading you include is relevant and perfectly aligned with your SEO goals.

If you’re a writer who simply wants to write, but not write for an empty room; this course will show you how to both predict, and measure, your success. Yes, SEO is a science, but you don’t need a degree in engineering in order to seamlessly navigate Surfer.

Focus on creating, and let our algorithms do the rest. Surfer is the antidote to writer’s block.

Freelancers who want to up their quantity, without sacrificing quality

How long would it take you to research your keywords, develop an internal linking strategy, create an outline to organize your ideas, and then write 3k words? Now, how many 3,000-word articles do you need to produce to pay for a month of Netflix, or your car insurance or maybe, a fancy dinner at your fave restaurant? The life of a freelancer is busy, busy, busy and time is very literally money. This course will help you produce high-quality content in a fraction of the time, which will allow you to then take on more projects (and add extra guac to your burrito!)
