Keyword Mode

Simplicity at its finest

Keyword mode is designed to be a quick and elegant way to create content. Simply enter a keyword you'd like to rank on, and Byword will handle the rest. It'll start by generating a relevant title, and then a body based on that title, which is what gets outputted to you.

Define: Keyword

A keyword is a word or phrase that a user inputs into a search engine, and for most cases is interchangeable with search term. A keyword can be a single word (flights) or multiple words (how to find cheap flights). Because search terms often contain grammatical errors, it's fine for these to appear in keywords (how find cheap flights).

When should you use keyword mode?

Keyword mode is ideal in a few different scenarios:

  • You don't have a fully formed idea of what article title you'd like, but you know what sorts of things your target audience is searching.

  • You have a big list of keywords from a research tool (ahrefs, Semrush, etc.) and you don't want to faff around creating titles from each one/you'd rather Byword creates the titles.

When should you not use keyword mode?

  • If you already have your article titles prepared, you may as well skip straight to title mode.

  • If you're planning to input a large number of keywords, and wanting to output articles that all follow a certain structure, then there may be a case to use title mode.

    • A good example of this is glossary content. Here, you might want to compile a list of titles in Excel/Sheets, which take the form {term}: {subject} Explained, where you use a formula to iterate through {term} with all your glossary's terms, and {subject} is replaced by the subject you're writing on. For example, a financial glossary might end up with titles that look like:

      CapEx: Finance Explained Credit Rating: Finance Explained Interest Rates: Finance Explained
