Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you’ve heard of ChatGPT. Besides mind-blowing everyone at how amazing it is at answering all kinds of questions, it made every SEOs job A LOT easier when it comes to writing articles.
Here are a few tips and tricks to help you generate content for your PBN blogs and possibly even regular articles. I promise none of the tips have been written by ChatGPT. :)
Tips for SEOs
If you haven’t yet, buy the Plus version. I don’t think there’s been a tool more underpriced than this at $20/m. It’s currently also the only way to get access to GPT-4 (and Plugins).
- Give it as many details as possible. The longer and better the prompt, the better the final result.
- If you’re not getting good results, try priming it with training content before your prompt. You can throw a page or two of relevant content and then have it generate the answer after that.
- You can also prime it with a persona prompt by telling it to act like [someone]. Get inspiration from the list on Awesome ChatGPT Prompts.
- If you don’t like what it wrote, give it feedback and iterate.
- Is it writing too much fluff? Tell it to “Minimize prose.”
Making it pass AI detectors
The latest Originality.ai is really good at detecting generated content, even GPT-4. We can then confidently assume that Google has the same capabilities. But, since Google said they care more about quality than how the content is produced, it makes no sense to try to avoid detection anyway. Focus on quality, fact-check and leave the AI to do its job.
Prompts for SEOs
Here are a few prompts to try out when doing keyword research or writing.
Provide a list of long-tail keywords related to [keyword].
Provide a list of relevant topics related to [keyword].
Write a detailed blog post outline about [keyword/phrase] with H2, H3, subheading, and bullet points.
Write a list of potential questions or points to cover in a blog post on this topic: [insert topic]
At this point, you could tell it to create an article based on the above two prompts.
Write a blog post about [topic] for [target audience] in [tone of voice]. The article should be no shorter than [words] and no longer than [words]. It should be structured with an introduction, body, and conclusion. Use [primary keyword] and [secondary keyword] throughout the post, without overusing them. Include a call-to-action that encourages the readers to [desired action].
I want to write a blog post on the topic of [long explanation of the topic] for my audience of [your audience]. First, generate five questions about the topic. Second, generate five key things about the topic that are different from the five questions. Third, write a blog post answering those questions and adding five key things in it. Fourth, finish with a short summary and add a call to action to [do something]. Fifth, generate an interesting headline for the article. Write as a human so the content passes AI detection tests. The article should not be shorter than 1000 words and not longer than 1500 words.
There are, of course, a million other prompts you can try and test out. I recommend you do your own testing and compare results.
