Both Yoast and Rank Math have tools built in for measuring readability.

However, a lot of your efforts will come from your own insight.

To ensure your blog posts are readable, use some of these tactics.

  • Images
  • Bullet points
  • Bolded text for key points (but don’t over-do it)
  • Navigation tools such as “back to top buttons” or a table of contents
  • Embedded videos
  • Infographics
  • Dark screen and light screen options
  • Yoast plugin

Pro Tip: Use Hemingway

The Hemingway Editor (also called the Hemingway App) can be used as a web-based tool or a downloadable app for Macs and PCs.

An important part of SEO is readability.

Experts suggest writing most blog posts for readers at a grade level of 5 or 6.

While most people can read higher than this grade level, keeping your writing simple is better for both your readers and SEO.

Besides making your content more user-friendly and readable, the Hemingway App will also correct these issues:

  • Overly complex sentences
  • Confusing language
  • Adverb overuse
  • Passive voice

The web-based version of the app is free to use, and the desktop version costs $19.99.
