Though copyediting takes place nearly last in the content creation process, this essential step can truly separate you from the competition.
Linchpin SEO offers companies the benefits of a comprehensive editorial offering. Our proofreading and editing services cover all aspects of grammar and readability, as well as web-specific best practices regarding article length, link text, and click-worthy word choice.
No matter the subject and no matter how polished your writing, our team of trained professionals will call on their content savvy and strong command of language to amplify the meaning you need to convey. Our goal is to make sure your content is as clear, correct, concise, complete, and consistent as possible.
We don’t base our projects on set hourly rates. Most are priced on a per-project basis to ensure you get the most out of our editorial services.

Three levels of Editing Services
Our editing team will thoroughly check your content to correct basic typos including grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors. This process eliminates distractions from your original intention and message.
All edits will be tracked in a Microsoft Word document, so you can accept or reject each correction as you see fit. Comments will be included when a proofreader has questions or notes on the intended meaning of a specific phrase.
Copyediting service (includes proofreading)
Our editing team will complete a line-by-line edit of your content, strengthening sentence structure where needed, eliminating extra words, and correcting for consistency and repetition. They will also suggest improvements on “display copy” like headlines and photo captions where they see fit. This process includes a more critical eye toward succinctness and clarity, empowering the strongest expression of your idea to rise to the top.
Your edits will be returned in a Microsoft Word document, including tracked changes you can accept or reject as you see fit plus any specific questions from your our team on clarity.
Content flow consultation (available with Copyediting or Proofreading)
Our editing team will take a broad look at the content of your article, from title to summary, and offer feedback on how its structure can better serve the intention of your message. This is not a standalone service; it is only available in conjunction with our Copyediting or Proofreading services.
