I built this template for myself, while creating SEO-focused content for a client. It includes pages for:
Log keyword data like search volume and difficulty
Create topic clusters, and see which ones are most valuable to produce
Link optimization reports from Clearscope/Semrush/etc.
Connect data to the content you’ll be creating to rank for those terms
Once the content is ranking, monitor its rank
Come up with content ideas of all kinds—from Ultimate Guides to blog posts to podcasts and more—and prioritize them according to keyword data, brand relevance, and preference
Make sure titles are within 60 characters (or as close as possible) to fit on Google SERP
Pull keyword data directly into content pages for easy viewing and to stay aligned
Assign writers by sharing each page with them (make sure to also share the full Keyword research page so they can see the data)
Set deadlines and move pieces through the funnel
Link to published pieces for record-keeping
Manage creators across any trade—writing, graphic design, video & more
Track who’s created which pieces of content
Test out new creators by assigning them a piece of content
Give creators ownership over entire categories
In the future…
Depending on how well this template does, I’d love to expand it — there’s a lot of room for improvement in terms of managing content distribution, internal linking, backlinking, etc. There’s also a huge opportunity to automate much of the process using Zapier/Notion API.
