When placing links, choose a keyword to replace

I personally don't like links not making sense in the sentence that they're in. It'd be amazing if I could have the option to replace a certain word or list of words and one of those will be replaced my by link/anchor text.

SCM looks up the keywords in the articles keyword box for find and replace. If it doesn't find it, it puts it in randomly.

Hey man, I understand it does find and replace. What I mean is I want to change the word "SEO" to "SEO Expert" or "high quality SEO"

It doesn't do that right now :/

Not sure what you are asking for, do you mean.

If article keyword is "SEO"?

The link keyword is SEO Expert...

SCM will replace SEO with link - keyword "SEO Expert'?

Yeah, exactly. It'll help a shit ton with making the links make sense in the sentences.

Example:

My Keywords:

  • seo
  • seo company
  • seo professional
  • search engine optimization

My Anchor Text:

  • Brandon SEO
  • SEO by Brandon
  • SEO
  • Search Engine Optimization

Now normally I would take more time to pick the perfect keywords, but can you see my point? Sentences with the keyword in it should make more after it's replaced by my anchor text.

SCM already does this doesn't it? Replaces text with anchor text?

Can you do a quick screenshot to highlight where the feature needs to be extended?

No it seems like it just places the text randomly... maybe I'm wrong? Cause I usually see my links next to a keyword I was making my anchor text.

It'd imagine this in the 'Links' tab of the article creator.

Kontent Machine does this. It replaces the campaign KW with any desired anchor which reads better than when the anchor is at the end of a sentence.

It does replace any article keyword in a paragraph with your anchor texts. As long as they match.

SCM will not go and find a paragraph with your article keyword.

It FIRST chooses a paragraph, then replaces the article keyword if it exists.

SCM does this because it will only ever insert 1 link or token in each paragraph.

You will never see 2 links in the same paragraph.

Please only compare the inserted link to where it is in the paragraph. Don't search around the article for a keyword. SCM doesn't do this when inserting contextual links.
