Since SEO IQ analyzes your web page against the top 10 competitors in the same genre, it figures out all the possible broad keywords that match the primary keyword. Once done, it gives you suggestions on how to use these keywords throughout the content, including heading tags, alt texts, meta descriptions, etc. 

Words & Characters

The next portion of “Improvement Ideas” that SEO IQ shows is the number of words and characters present in each section.

RankWatch SEO IQ words section

There are several sections of a content piece that need to be under a certain word and character limit.

For example, you need to develop a meta description that’s under 160 characters because Google only showcases meta descriptions under the stipulated limit, and if the limit is beyond that, it would be cut off. 

The same goes for the word limit for heading tags. As SEO IQ analyzes your competitors, it also notes the average heading tag length they are following and suggests you do the same.

SEO IQ also suggests you limit your URL characters as a clean and crisp URL is a way to win Google’s heart and increase your chances of better rankings.

Besides, maintaining a proper word and character limit also improves your content flow and makes it skimmable.

Page Elements

The Page elements amount to the tags that help divide the content into sections and maintain the flow. All kinds of heading tags (H1 to H6), alt texts, meta descriptions, P tags, etc., are considered page elements.

SEO IQ detects such page elements and states whether you use them correctly throughout the content. Even if you are overusing them, the tool warns you of the same and advises you to decrease it.

Once you incorporate the suggestions in the “Page Elements” section, the content flow becomes cleaner and more concise.

Speed & Page Size

Let’s be honest over here: No one is going to visit your website if the loading time is more than 5 seconds. Yes, that’s right; 5 seconds is the limit for making a user stay on your website.
