Online Text Analysis Tool - Textalyser

Words for reviewing with Textalyser
It's Only Words...
Textalyser ( is a useful tool for analysis of word groups or sentences, to extract meaningful statistics with phrase and expression patterns. Evaluation of the informative data and stats in a structured table format indicates an appreciation of this tool for easier further analysis. Hence those involved in writing or content generation, such as writers, bloggers, students, teachers, and content researchers, might find this utility quite helpful. It's also beneficial to apply with other text analyzer related tools, such as online dictionaries, keyword databases, permutation word generators, search engines, and as I discovered some Firefox browser add-ons or plug-ins.

Specific Text Applications

You can use Textalyser for grammar improvement, essay, ad-copy, or content comparison, keyword density and diversity grouping and research (with other tools). Can perform readability analysis (and therefore enhancement), authoring validation, and perhaps other text related functions - importantly for keyword research. I found the single word and 3 phrase frequency interesting and useful, as a Blogger. Many niche bloggers and web publishers, will find this tool useful for analyzing either their own articles or that of their competitors. You might be able to find 3 or 4 phrase patterns, known as long tail keywords, or perhaps discover related (but uncommon) words to use in your articles.

Deeper Text Research Insight - Comparisons

In-depth analysis with Textalyser might involve inserting lengthy articles, including adding several sentences from various sources online. This is what I did for comparing the reviews of two popular hair straighteners. The idea was to try get an overall summary, feedback, or emotional "feeling" about the two items. Though some reviews are obvious as to which is better or worse (i.e. the good against bad or cheap vs expensive, etc). However, I wanted to evaluate if I could extract more, perhaps subconscious or underlining thoughts or feelings that may not be so apparent. I believe I did extract more info, but with the help of another tool, called Wordle, which is a "text cloud" generator. The bolder or larger the text (i.e. font), the more prominence assigned to it, suggesting more relevance or significance.

Example of Textalyser Application: Comparative Evaluation

Rather than me rambling on about textual results, it may be better to read the hair straightener text review analysis (note it's a long article, with images). It did show, I believe important, even refined differences of dozens of reviewer's thoughts.

Other useful Word Analyzers and Related Search Tools

As noted above, if you really want to get analytical, particularity for keyword research, and as those that do (and probably know), their are other complimentary online research tools to help improve word phrase diversity, synonyms, semantics, definitions and so on. Maybe apply these utilities as well...

Text Analyzers

Urban Dictionary
Stores, and I think collects new "urban" or "street" definitions, for reference. I use this site to try find new terms that may crop up, so as to incorporate them in my blog articles. You can get a "new word a day" emailed to you from their site.

Firefox Addons

I use a few search based addons with results that are generated from Textalyser, to either get more information using specific search parameters, or from various search engines. Also to retrieve related terms, synonyms, and latest "trendy" keywords.

RC Search
Provides advanced and varied search features in Firefox right click context menu. Highlight a word, then right click to select RC Search, then select Google normal search, exact phrase, images, news, dictionary, maps, etc. But also can select YouTube, eBay, IMDB, and urban dictionary - useful to find new "urban" keywords from Textalyser results.

Google Semantics
Great tool for getting synonyms form within your text, so as to expand your keywords for article writing, blogging, content generation, etc.

Search Selected
Little similar to RC Search, but use keyboard short cuts for your selected text, to open up search engines in new tabs. Select s for web search, w for Wikipedia, i for Image search, etc and can use numbers for favorite search engines.

Read It Later
Perhaps you get plenty of phrases, or related text using the addons from different pages. Then perhaps save them later for actual writing with this addon.

Also save later but can create folders, collect info from various sources, manage, and add citations for your research sources.

There are many other text analyzers, textual cloud displays, visual keyword mappers, and search engine segmentation/categorization/graphical tools. All helpful and important for phrase optimization techniques, including creation, text cross referencing, relative association pairing, semantic analysis, in order to yield more interesting but extremely useful keywords or phrases to work with in content generation.
