INK for Chrome helps me to write clearly and effectively
This product resulted in numerous writers quitting a project after it proved to be arbitrary and utterly inconsistent. We noticed that there were huge differences in the scores recorded, resulting in a lot of questions. A writer might record a score of 94%, and then the editor might note a score of 83%. This was happing consistently and was tested. For an SEO tool, that's not helpful, and it suggests that the tool is returning semi-arbitrary scores. The tool adjusts the score according to whether a word has been added to INK's dictionary or not. Adding a word to an internal dictionary won't affect the actual placement online, so I'm not sure how that works. Again, it's another arbitrary aspect of the tool that indicates the score is not an actual representation of the likelihood of a top-10 placement. The keyword suggestion tool appears to be misleading. A writer noted that the word "arrow" appeared in certain suggested keywords. This appears to be based on the image metadata for an arrow on the site, unrelated to the topic being written about. We also noted a lot of outages, where it claimed writers were offline when they weren't, and the spell check and the grammar check are nowhere near the standard of most commercially available solutions. The suggested word count rarely makes sense, and writers would often have to produce double that to fit in all the suggested keywords in a logical way. Because of the way we work, we could check multiple different aspects of INK, and consistency is a major part of what we needed. It does not appear to do what it claims it does, and I cannot recommend anyone trust it at this stage.
It has A LOT of potential, but it's still a little buggy -and it has no autosave. So, if it crashes, you can lose your work. That's the only reason why I wouldn't recommend it, and I stopped using it myself. Otherwise, it's a very good product. Looking forward to its future :)
