Write More, Experiment more, Improve rankings with the Power of AI

In this article, we’ll go over how Artificial Intelligence can help you create more and better content faster and how you can run more SEO experiments to boost your rankings.

We’ll go over how AI can help with White Hat SEO.

You might have seen case studies of website crawling FAQs from SERP and auto generating content. High peaks and big drops. We won’t be going over using AI for Black Hat SEO today.

We believe AI can help boost rankings, but the human touch is always a must.

AI SEO Content Writing

To rank well, you need more and better content. AI is great for helping you:

Let’s get started!

How AI helps you come up with new content ideas based on your keyword research

If you’ve already done your Keyword Research, you’ll probably have a sheet that looks a bit like this:

example keyword research

So here’s how AI can help you go from a list of keywords to actual content ideas.

Simply copy / paste your keywords and topics into StoryLab’s AI Content Idea Generator and get fresh content ideas.

StoryLab.ai’s Content Idea Generator runs on the OpenAI network so the ideas it generates are unique. There is no large Excel sheet or anything that it fetches data from. meaning, your competitors will not get the same ideas when using StoryLab.ai.

Here’s an example of how it can look like when you copy / paste keyword ideas from your keyword research into StoryLab.ai’s Idea Generator:

Create SEO content briefs faster with the help of AI

If you’re not writing content yourself, but work with freelance content writers, AI can help you create content briefs a lot faster.

You’ve already seen how you can go from keyword research to content ideas in a matter of minutes and how you can write an article in under 30 minutes.

For creating your content briefs, you simply go over the steps we walked you through in our AI Article Writing article, but you don’t fill in the gaps yourself.

You hand over the article topic, keywords, title, intro and outline to your content writer and move on to the next briefing.

Or.

Because AI makes content writing a lot easier, maybe you do start writing a couple of articles yourself.

Come up with new Title Tags and Description Tags to run experiments faster

We all know the power of title and description tags for SEO. Even though Google likes to rewrite them, we still spend time on creating great ones to help boost click through rates and ranking.

With AI Marketing Copy Generators, you can create multiple variations and select the best looking one before publishing an article, but you can also go over your existing articles and figure out with data from Google Search Console which articles have a low CTR and thus deserves to experiment with a new title and description tag.

The problem with doing this without the help of AI is that it’s very difficult to come up with new variations. Your brain loves the comfort zone and wants to stay there. AI doesn’t have that problem. You can easily insert your existing title and our AI Generator will Reword them. Not just by using synonyms, it will find new angles and boost your creativity.

Here’s how it looks like when I insert an existing Title Tag in our Title Generator.

You can now easily go through your Search Console data and find opportunities to run experiments on.

Come up with new introductions and run experiments to lower bounce rates

Google wants to serve searchers the best it can. In Google’s ideal world, you search for something and the first result you click on satisfies your search intent.

If you need to click on a result, click the back button, second result, back button again, it will signal to Google that the search intent did not match the results. If a lot of people do the same thing, the results that occupy the top positions will not stay there for a long time.

Google hates pogo-sticking (situation we described above). But people don’t always click the back button because a page did not satisfy the searcher’s intent. The page speed and how you manage to excite people to read more also plays a role.

Let’s focus on how AI can help you re-write introductions of pages that have a high bounce rate.

For this, head over to your Google Analytics and find pages that have a high bounce rate.

Check your introductions. Are you satisfied with them? If not, let’s see how AI can help paraphrase them.

In this example, I simply entered my Blog Title into our AI Blog Intro Generator. Here’s how that looks like:

Simply select an Intro output that you like best, add your human touch and replace your old intro.

In a couple of weeks, check if your bounce rate has decreased and decide if it’s on par with what you’ve expected.

Benefits of AI for SEO

AI is already helping Google to show results that matches searcher’s intent and it will also help SEO professionals more and more to gather data they need, make predictions and create more and better content.

While AI is taking on the heavy lifting of content creation, SEO professionals can focus more on what matters most: understanding how they can add value to their audience.

It’s difficult to focus on the important, soft aspects of SEO when you’re under constant pressure of creating more content. With AI, you can finally take on more important tasks.

Write more. Write better. Grow faster.
