The Impact of AI on SEO: Pros, Cons and Humanization

The Impact of AI on SEO: Pros, Cons and Humanization

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and the process of optimizing web content including text, images, videos, gifs, etc. to be visible to the right audience is called SEO. All the content on the internet was entered by humans before the availability of AI tools either by typing, uploading, or streaming live. But now AI tools have revolutionized the world with their easy access and usage. Since the majority of AI tools are available for free, the internet is divided into whether to use AI content to get SEO rankings or they should stick to the traditional way of writing content. In this blog, we will dig more into the matter. Importance of content in SEO SEO aims to get visitors and the only thing that can attract and maintain users is quality content. Without the content search engines will never know what a page is about and how to get relevant users. Hence making the content extremely important for a web page and its success. Search engines rank content based on an algorithm, a set of rules/instructions. It's important to keep up with the changes in those rules. These changes can help you figure out how to make your website rank higher in search engine results. When it comes to SEO, only really good content matters. Search engines like Google prefer helpful and well-made content because it helps users to get the required results. Search engines use words/phrases known as keywords to match user queries with the content on the internet and then show them results that best match their intent depending on the user's location, demographics, gender, etc. Now, the question arises can an AI language model create content that keeps up with the algorithm of a search engine? Any content, generated by machines as a result of the human query is known as AI content, which could be blogs, product descriptions, research articles, marketing materials, videos, audio, etc. It may have limitations which can only be overcome through human efforts to make the content work well on search engines. Pros of AI-generated content Cost Effectiveness Creating content with experienced writers costs very high depending on the required technical knowledge, word count, and required format. On the other hand, AI content generators are free or available at cheap rates. Efficiency and Scalability An AI tool can generate hundreds of articles in a few minutes compared to a human. An experienced writer needs hours to days to research and write an article molding it into the required format and making it keyword-optimized. An AI tool can personalize the same content for different formats like a social media post, a blog post, etc. which might seem challenging for a human writer. Help with writer’s block When a writer finds it difficult to be creative and with no idea it is called writer’s block. Getting stuck in writer’s block is a common hurdle writers face while creating content. AI content creation tools can generate ideas and outlines for the content helping them get rid of this issue. Improved SEO Where there is debate about using AI content for SEO, it is proven that AI-generated content has performed no less than that of humans. AI tools can research, explore, and write hundreds of high-quality articles in a few minutes. Where there is debate about using AI content for SEO, it is proven that AI-generated content has performed no less than that of humans. Cons of AI-generated content Plagiarized and poor-quality content AI tools fetch data from the same resource and there is quite a chance that it is the same data created earlier. Search engines do not support plagiarism and will flag the copied content. Other than plagiarism, AI content misses the proper flow of content as it fetches data from random resources making it against the search engine’s content guidelines. Algorithms devalue content Search engines like ‘Google’ support content that adds value to the users. Depending on the user interest, and bounce back rate, Google will devalue a web page. AI tools without understanding the complication create content filled with information resulting in users leaving the page. Lack of creativity Content can never be engaging if it’s not creative and the reader does not feel an emotional bond with it. Creativity depends on the topic and the way it is explained. AI lacks this emotional touch, hence creating content that is more informative and less interactive. Human editing is a must AI tools do not understand adjective meanings of the word and might write two opposite opinions in one piece of writing. They explore and find data from many of the online resources and combine them to keep a final output. This final output still needs human editing to keep the same side of the writer’s opinion. Lack of new ideas AI tools use already available data on the internet and create a piece of writing without adding something new and creative. Meanwhile, trending topics keep on changing. To keep a specific position on the top pages of a search engine, a business must create trending content as soon as possible and relying solely on the AI content creation tool might not work well. To keep a specific position on the top pages of a search engine, a business must create trending content as soon as possible and relying solely on the AI content creation tool might not work well. Strategies for Humanizing AI Content Apart from the disadvantages of AI, about 87% of people are using AI to generate content. According to IBM, 34% of organizations are currently using AI and 42% are analyzing the facts to switch to this new technology. Since it is the need of today’s world, let us find ways to make AI-generated content more like humans and less like machines. 1. AI-generated content uses common phrases or words like "Furthermore," "Additionally" "Moreover," "unravel," unleash," "unveil," "uncover", "Unlock," "In conclusion," and "ultimately", "in summary," etc. Whenever you are using an AI tool, make sure to watch out for these words. Remove them and add a flow to your content as required. 2. Most of the AI tools use passive voice while explaining a solution. As a writer, you must focus that there are no more than two passive voice sentences in one paragraph. Try to develop and maintain the tone of the piece of writing in first-person pronouns. Use words like I, We, and Us. Remember that Search engines better rank content that describes the personal experience or tells a story. 3. Search engines prefer content that is both informative and entertaining. The presented information and facts should be accurate. Never post your AI-generated content online without fact-checking it. Use different resources and make sure you are delivering the right information. 4. There are thousands of tools available online that humanize AI content. It is never recommended to use them, instead, make sure that you edit each of your pieces of writing yourself. AI tools are great assistance and facilitation and have made our work easy. Though it has some drawbacks, we cannot deny its importance in this new era. These tools provide ideas and outlines for our content and projects. The basic need is to review the content minutely and add the required changes. AI tools with your creativity and imagination can make your content SEO-friendly to rank it higher on search engines. AI is the future, and it is better to equip yourself with it as early as possible. Author: Ayesha Aslam | Reviewed By: Hifsah Umbreen

What is VA and who is VA for Amazon?

Are you drawn to remote work, flexible hours, and contributing to a global e-commerce giant? If so, consider becoming a Virtual Assistant (VA) for Amazon! This blog explores the world of Amazon VAs, their roles, and unique skill sets. VAs provide remote administrative support, handling tasks like appointment scheduling, call management, and email organization. They're flexible, often working as independent contractors or full-time remote employees. VAs aren't robots, they are trained individuals based remotely, ready to support your business needs. Whether you are a business owner seeking support or an individual ready for a dynamic career, Amazon VA roles offer exciting opportunities in the digital landscape. How does VA differ from other kinds of assistants? Businesses can save extra expenses related to their location and equipment costs by hiring virtual assistants from a remote location. Hiring a VA with minimal training can help business owners save time, effort, and costs of hiring. While the VAs do the heavy lifting, companies can spend more time focusing on the important aspects of their business by outsourcing their internal processes. Some of the more common services among the VA circles are social media management, video editing, website design, and digital marketing, and businesses can hire virtual assistants for any and every possible function required. Hiring a VA with minimal training can help business owners save time, effort, and costs of hiring. How a Virtual Assistant Works for a Business? To work for a business, a VA differs from a salaried administrative assistant who can work from home.

Mastering the Art of Writing a Compelling Manuscript: A Comprehensive Guide
Apr 18, 2024

Mastering the Art of Writing a Compelling Manuscript: A Comprehensive Guide

Writing is expressing your thoughts, ideas, experiences, and information. It takes your energy to increase the potential of delivering the right message. Writing the true spirit with the right ingredients to increase the taste of the recipe is the job of a skilled writer. In this blog, we will discuss some points that will help you to become a competent writer and deliver a clear and considerable message. Writing the true spirit with the right ingredients to increase the recipe's taste is a skilled writer's job. To draft a complete message, the 3(3)-writing process will help you. Pre-writing is the first step, writing is the second step. The third step is revising the complete manuscript/writing. To make communication effective and easier, these steps must be followed in preparation for all types of written communication. Each step is further divided into three subdivisions: 1. Pre-writing a) Analyze: The analysis of the news you will disclose is very important for a quality message. i. Is it worth writing? ii. What is the purpose and ultimate impact of the news/message/document? iii. How will the message be delivered? b) Anticipate: Anticipation considers how the audience will react after reading the message. Before writing something, you must understand who the target audience is. How and what they will perceive your message? The tone of your message is set according to the audience and receiver of your message. For example, if you are sending an email to the officials of your company, then you will surely write that in a very formal way by following all the protocols. If you are writing for a comedy show then it will be written in a light mode and tone, that can engage with the audience. The importance of Audience can be signified by Randy Bomer – “As a part of this sense of purpose, a writer needs to have others in mind – an audience to whom she/he is speaking”. c) Adapt: Adapting is adjusting according to the environment by making the modifications that can help to fit into the place. Both the stages combine at this stage – the analysis and the anticipation to make the adaptation for the writing easy. “The wise adapt themselves to the circumstances, as water molds itself to the pitcher” is a famous proverb; here it means that adjust your writing according to the audience. The one important thing to keep in mind while adapting the message according to the specific audience is to imagine the possible reaction of the receiver. Putting yourself in the reader’s shoes can help you understand their interests and needs, which in response helps you cultivate an empathetic relationship with the reader and hit on the point. Sum-up of Pre-writing: Pre-writing is thinking about what to write, and after the completion of this process, it finally enters the writing phase. 2. Writing a) Research: Finding and picking up the relevant data, information, facts, and related material to craft appropriate writing is research and it gives your manuscript an authentication. Research as much as you can, bear in mind that this is your best friend that can refine your piece of writing. You can do research through books, search engines, interviews, surveys and so on. b) Organize: This step is about organizing the data collected earlier by research. The well-constructed, well-organized informational message attracts the audience and works like the right dose for fever. Using diagrams and outlines can help in this regard and increase the focus of the message. You can use the rule of thumb “combine the information in three to five categories— divide the main topic into 3 to 5 subtopics” to increase the potential of grasping the main idea of the context. c) Compose: The first copy of the written manuscript is written quickly and is not perfect and ready to deliver information; and needs refining for its presentation. The proper writing presentation is done at this stage – the composition. The first draft works to keep thoughts on paper for the improvement of the future manuscript. 3. Revising a) Revision: It is the step where writers can edit their writing to enhance its clarity, conciseness, readability, and conversational potential. Find creative ways to enhance the worth of your writing, by highlighting the important message and doing its proper detailing. Here, reading and re-reading the draft can help to get rid of the unwanted redundancies and wordiness along with finding the room for the addition of the supporting visuals and bold fonts or bullet points that would be appropriate and helpful. b) Proofreading: This step of writing needs to be handled with care and utmost attention. Check for any possible spelling, grammar, and other common language mistakes because a single error of this sort leads to a quick loss of professionalism and credibility. c) Evaluation: Now this is the final check for your writing to see that it meets all the needs of the audience, and the purpose of the writing is fulfilled. The senior writers suggest you go through the revision of the manuscript a few times before sending it so that it becomes purposeful and accurate. Conclusion To make your writing accurate and impactful, you need to give proper time to the thinking process. Research well and organize the data in the right order. Revise and proofread the whole text to check for any mistakes and unnecessary repetitions. Finally, evaluate it to verify that all the information you have provided is valid and accurate. By putting your serious efforts into the writing process, you may overcome all the weaknesses to become a good writer. Author: Haleema Sadia | Reviewed By: Hifsah Umbreen
