How to Get Complete Topical Coverage Automatically with Letterdrop

If you want to rank in 2024 and beyond, you need to be giving readers all the information they could possibly need on a topic to answer search intent — including net new information.

Most SEO tools out there claim to help you with SEO but promote keyword stuffing. They weren't working for companies like Scribe.

Now, Scribe has 11x'ed their qualified traffic and paid signups from SEO after onboarding Letterdrop, which helps them target complete topical coverage and optimize for the future of SEO.

This playbook will show you how to get set up with Letterdrop to do the same.

How it Works

  1. Enter your keyword in the SEO Optimization tab in the Letterdrop editor
  2. Use the "What's Already Covered" tab and generative AI to cover topics that are already covered
  3. Access suggestions for information gain
  4. Add a People Also Ask section
  5. Check your coverage

The Playbook

Step 1: Navigate to the Letterdrop Editor

After logging in to Letterdrop, navigate to Blog → Posts → Write new post (or, if you want to check coverage on an existing post, open a blog post on the list.)

3.3 Optional: Use the "Outline" Tool to "Research Dump" for You

The "Outline" tool condenses SERP information into dedicated sections for you.

You can choose to generate the result in the form of headers and bullets or a full article.

This should help serve as the foundation of your article.

1. Click "Create Outline"
