How many times have you been to a site and noticed that there are all kinds of grammatical errors? It hurts because people see it. They then question the creditability of a site. It’s because the content on the site is very poor. As a result, they typically bounce from your site. Google takes note of this and will lower your rankings if you have a high bounce rate.
Some years ago I made the mistake of outsourcing content to people in the Philipeans. What I got back was content with a ton of grammatical errors. Therefore, this Grammarly tool would have helped me tremendously years ago.
I’m not stating that the grammar needs to be perfect. I know there are some grammar issues on tbwhs.com. I’m not a professional writer by any means. But, in this article, I want to give you an inside look at Grammarly so that you can decide if it will work for you.
So, over the last 2 months, I have been toying around with Grammarly tool. So, let’s see what all this tool has to offer.
How Easy To Use Is Grammarly?
Grammarly is very easy to use and here is why.
It’s web based software. Meaning that you download a Google Chrome app and install it on your browser. Then, you login and check your writing for grammar mistakes. For me, I have been using it with WordPress. You write your article in WordPress. At the bottom of your post, you will see a red bubble. This bubble will show you how many grammatical errors are in the piece of content you are working on.
Then you click on it. It will show you all the changes that you should consider making. From time to time some words are not in Grammarly’s dictionary. When that is the case, you click on “add to the dictionary.”
That is how simple Grammarly is to use. Also, you can download an app for your computer. With this app, you simply cut and paste the piece of content you want to check for grammar errors.
I do use Grammarly when commenting on others blog post, too. It works the same way as the web-based method I have shown you above. Also, you can use it on your emails or anything that is web-based.
How Grammarly Helps Your Writing?
Errors are defined with Grammarly. When you click on the word or phrases, you will get an explanation of why that piece of content isn’t grammatically correct.
Grammarly can help with:
- Confused prepositions.
- Spelling mistakes.
- Incorrect punctuation
- Wordy sentences.
- Overusing a passive voice.
Over the last 2 months, I have actually learned a lot of grammar mistakes I was making. Commonly, I found that I was using the words “their” instead of “there.” I used Grammarly on over 200 posts on tbwhs.com. I have really cleaned up the grammatical errors that were on tbwhs.com.
Manually Proofreading or Grammarly?
Obviously, there is no replacement for a human proofreader. Computers were created by humans. The software was created by humans. People will never be replaced by software.
So, no you still do need to proof your content. But, Grammarly can drastically help the entire process of proofing your site’s content. It would cost more money to hire someone to proof your content from TextBroker, though.
One trick I have used over the years is I have my Mac read the content to me. All, I do is highlight the content, and it reads it to me. If you don’t have text to speech software on your computer, you can always install a free one. I do recommend iSpeech. They have an awesome Google Chrome application. Also, it is free.
I have noticed that some of the changes Grammarly suggest don’t make sense. For example “squinting modifiers” can be an issue.
But, clearly, you’re going to still need to proof your content before publishing it.
