Will a high document score translate to more traffic for my content?

Although a high score ensures you are using the best terms and engaging in the best practices related to your content, there are many other factors, which determine whether you will get more traffic.

Even though InboundWriter assesses many SEO best practices to provide strong recommendations, in many ways it supersedes SEO through a more complete set of online content strategies.

It’s also important to note that InboundWriter does not attempt to engage in technical SEO recommendations.
