    Grammar is useful for SEO ( i think )

  2. Peter Gitundu

    Search engines do not like spelling mistakes. You do not look good to your readers if you have lots of mistakes. Personally, i have to proofread every paragraph as i write

  3. bob ravey

    This is really good

  4. GinaPocan

    It was painful to watch, cause it flowed so slow, but i do’t blame the site for it, I blame my network. It would have been a great asset, but unfortunely I didn’t have the pleasure to hear the narrator.

    Will this be available as plugin for self-hosted WP installs or become embedded within some update soon?

    I enjoy your useful presentations.
    P.S. the elevator background music is an unnecessary, annoying distraction.

    Great work! I’ve gone ahead and installed it straight away on my self-hosted blog and I’m really impressed. It almost makes me want to write more :)

    I still don’t get why “passive voice” gets flagged so much.

  24. Brendan

    Am new to this so looks helpful

  25. JEN

    This one will prop me up on the pedestal, and spread a net for me if I slip off.

  26. Len

    Great stuff, I love Word Press. Its like having building blocks for the internet.
    Thanks guys.

    Can someone explain to me why when you download the plugin, you’re not actually getting the software, just an interface to it? (I don’t mind, I’m just wondering what the reasoning behind this is). Thanks.

      To make After the Deadline smarter, a lot (really, a *lot*) of data is collected. AtD works by using contexts and detailed language models.

      It’s far easier and more effective for AtD to store that information and provide it to you as a service.

    The proof-reader feature rocks!

    But, the Visual Guides are absolutely amazing! .. Good show! :)

  29. Free Blogs

    I think I really need it. Is it WPMU Supported ?

    No need for this since modern browser got this already implemented !
