Perhaps many of you are members of Facebook SEO group, The Lab. Today they are discussing tools such as TF-IDF analysis, MarketMuse, SEMRush and so on. Is anyone here looking at those values (TF-IDF) as you create and optimize content?
I am still heavily weighted with on-page SEO, but my keyword rankings are dropping perhaps because I don't have the beloved Keyword tool from Hubspot (may it rest in peace) but do use SEMRush.
It's a jungle out there. Any thoughts on this subject? I would greatly appreciate it.

There are MAJOR reasons why, as an industry, SEO has shifted the focus away from keywords and towards topic-based content strategies over the past few years -- i.e., Topic Clusters and Pillar Pages. HubSpot's in-house SEO expert, Matthew Howells-Barby, has much to say on the step-by-step tactics HubSpot uses (and used) to rank #1 across multiple industries for high value key phrases.
By the way, don't recall hearing him (or Dr. Pete from Moz) use the term 'TF-IDF' in at least 3 years! haha
May be the best 120 minutes you spend on SEO training if you're using HubSpot's blogging platform ... and even if you're not.
Good luck with your project.
