Uses ChatGPT4 and has the option to compare the SERPs when producing content. For Black Friday, they are offering up to 45% off their credit packs!
Link Whisper - Deal still LIVE as of 11/29/23. The countdown timer says it's expired, but the $30 off worked for me all the way to checkout. This plugin helps you build internal links by suggesting links and them automatically inserting them. Pretty brilliant. I've been loving it even more since I purchased the premium version a few months ago. They're having a $30 off special for Black Friday. (affiliate link)
