The Playground is a feature of the Linksy WordPress plugin that allows you to search for and analyze pages on your site that are optimized for a particular keyword or phrase. 

Note: We intend to extend the features on the Playground. Got some ideas? Share them here.

The keyword search has two options: single and versus. With the single option, you can search for a specific keyword or phrase and see the pages on your site that are related to that keyword or phrase, along with a rating that shows how well they are optimized for that keyword.

The versus option lets you compare two different keywords or phrases to see which one is better optimized for your content. This can be a useful tool for identifying the best keyword or phrase to use for a particular post or page, and can help you optimize your content for search engines and improve the overall performance of your website's SEO.

To use the Playground, simply choose either the single or versus option, type in the keyword or phrase you want to search for, and click the search button. The results will be displayed in a side panel for the single option, and underneath the search area for the versus option. You can also choose how many results to show, with the default being 10 and the maximum being 50. This can be done before or after the search.

A Sample Search

To test the accuracy of the Playground feature, we used a test site and searched for the keyword "influencer marketing." The results of this search are shown in the image below.

As you can see, the search for "influencer marketing" returned "How to Grow a Team of Influencers" as the top result, followed by "What Is Influencer Marketing? – The Ultimate Guide for 2023." Even though the latter has the searched keyword in the title, the Playground is able to recognize that "How to Grow a Team of Influencers" is more relevant to the keyword "influencer marketing" based on the content of the page.

This is a good example of how the Playground is able to identify pages that are not only related to the searched keyword but also have a contextual relationship to the content of the page.

Without a doubt, the sample search is a testament to the accuracy and usefulness of the Playground feature, and that of the Linksy plugin as a whole. By using this feature, you can better understand how your website is performing in terms of search engine optimization and can make informed decisions about how to improve your website's performance.
