Lesson 5: Navigating Artificial Intelligence and Content

ChatGPT is just the first AI technology to continue making waves even outside of SEO and digital marketing. Artificial intelligence, at least in our purview, does not exist to dilute information on the web.

Instead, using AI content writing tools helps businesses become more competitive. Of course, it is natural for any business to want to become competitive online. However, it's also important to note that using artificial intelligence for creating content comes with a necessary balancing act.

The first rule that should apply to any SEO effort is an AI tool must never be left to its own devices. While artificial intelligence can learn how to cluster information and comprehend human nuance, it will continue to need the full attention of humans to work right.

Furthermore, from an SEO perspective, AI content writing tools are most valuable because they tap current keyword data and search trends, which reflects how people use search engines to find what they need. We think this angle of the picture is more valuable for someone trying to generate more web traffic with SEO.

There are many ways in which AI can improve content creation and marketing efforts. Here are some of the main advantages of AI-powered content tools:

·       Content generation automation and speedup

·       Aggregating user-generated content

·       Performing laborious and tedious tasks

·       Letting you enhance content visibility in SERPs

·       Increasing efficiency, freeing up time, and allowing you to concentrate on other work

·       Assisting you in getting past writer's block

The proper functioning of content AI tools relies on sets of instructions that human beings can only provide. Therefore, all AI tools are still dependent on human supervision and input. However, regardless of which content assistant you go with, you'll reap some benefits from using AI-powered tools for writing. The following are a few examples:

Produce blog posts with minimal effort.

The most important thing is that the quality of blog posts generated by AI remains high. Therefore, an AI content generator is worth trying out if it can reduce the time and effort spent on content production without sacrificing quality.

Draft up some catchy copy for those ads and your social media updates.

The primary difficulty for copywriters is writing persuasive copy that increases business. AI content generators trained on millions of examples can quickly write social media and advertising copy.

AI can advise how to improve an existing page.

In addition to composing articles for you, a reliable AI writing tool can offer guidance on improving your content's search engine rankings. Want to know how, though? Your page's health can be monitored in real-time with the help of a high-quality AI content tool that doubles as an AI SEO assistant.

The live score on the page will show where your site needs work. After that, you'll have to go in and hand-fix the errors on your page.

Create memorable slogans.

A company's tagline or slogan should communicate the company's values and goals. Any company worth its salt knows the value of a memorable slogan. Your company can benefit from an AI tagline generator if it uses high-quality AI.

Speed up content writing with templates.

When it comes to developing content with AI, templates are always helpful. Regarding the number and variety of templates available, AI tools vary widely; however, high-quality tools typically provide many templates to speed up the content-generation process.

An AI content assistant might, for instance, provide a sentence rewriter. Both short-form and long-form content suffer from dull sentences that are poorly structured. A sentence rewriter can completely alter the flow and style of the text.

Becoming Competitive with Content

Avoiding the most competitive search terms is not the limit of what you can do to gain an edge over competitors.

Understanding your target market and catering to their wants and needs is essential.

1. Gear content toward human readers before any search engine.

As previously mentioned, Google's algorithm is continually being refined and improved by incorporating human input. However, it would help if you didn't waste your time fooling a search engine because there is no foolproof method. Always remember to cater to your readers, not search engines.

If you want to succeed in growing web traffic, you need to focus on giving your readers what they want, which can only be accomplished by penning work that is both interesting and, at its core, realistic. Instead of forcing keywords into the text where they don't naturally fit, use driving keywords to improve upon the valuable and informative content you've already created.

2. Put your keywords where they'll do the best.

Although human beings should always be the primary focus, with search engines coming in a close second, keywords are the foundation upon which this entire operation rests. By identifying and isolating popular search terms, SEOs provide a direct line to what visitors and Google seek and generate over a thousand times as much traffic as organic social media, which accounts for over half of all website visits. As a result, you should base a lot of effort around keywords if you want to succeed at search engine optimization.

Finding the right keywords to use is the first step. Find broad search intent and your "seed" keywords with the help of SEO tools like Ahrefs and even simple on-site search bars. Then, conduct additional research to uncover long-tail variants, analyze your competition to identify keyword voids, and finally, incorporate these terms into your metadata and the anchor text of your links. Finally, avoid the temptation to overuse keywords. Try to work them in organically, so they don't interfere with the flow of the text.

3. Think about user experience (UX)

Using a website that you have trouble navigating is the worst. After more than a few seconds of not getting the right results, most people will already give up. In addition, your website's overall impression will suffer if visitors encounter problems like error pages, broken links, and a lack of organization.

Not only do users appreciate a well-designed site that loads quickly and is easy to navigate, but Google's spiders will thank you for making their job easier. Use headings and brief, simple paragraphs; clean up your subfolders; and make your content mobile friendly. Bounce rate, search engine rankings, and conversion rates can all be improved by implementing these changes.

And now more than ever, with page speed being a ranking factor, thanks to the page experience update, you should focus on improving your site's loading times.
