You’ll get the results in a handy table, which you can extract to your spreadsheet for analysis.

Why can word frequency help you for SEO?
SEO can be easier and simpler to implement when you base your optimisation decisions on numbers. After all, it is largely a numbers based endeavour.
SEO is trying to get the maximum number of people possible to see and click the search result for your website. So knowing the words that people commonly input into search engines can help you understand which words to include on your webpages so you will know which words to use to increase the relevancy of your content to these search queries.
Keyword research is an important part of any SEO strategy. Effective keyword research can help you optimise your website with content strategy to help build out pages on your website and technical SEO to help you understand relational concepts behind keywords and the keyword buckets you are targeting.
