Welcome to the world of AI! Keysearch now allows you to use AI (artificial intelligence) to generate content and ideas within the Content Assistant tool. This is a super cool feature when used correctly, and can significantly speed up your workflow when creating content.
For now, this feature is still in beta. As with any of our beta releases there may be some bugs and kinks to still work out. The AI model used is the same that runs ChatGPT so it is in high demand currently. This means there are occasional times when responses will be slow or timeout. Hopefully over the coming weeks and months this will be fully rectified.
AI Content Generation Tab
You will now see the AI tab within Content Assistant. When clicking on the tab you will see a list of different content type modules along with your remaining AI Credits in the top right corner.
AI Credits – Each AI Credit is equivalent to 1 returned word from the AI Content Generator. So if the response contains 80 words, it will use 80 AI Credits.
You can scroll through the right-hand column to view each of the different modules with a description of what type of content each module will produce.
AI Content Modules
Currently, there are 8 different types of content modules to choose from, each producing a different type and style of content. We may add or remove modules in the future but these 8 are just the start. They are:
- Create An Article Outline
- Create Article Headings
- Create Page Titles
- Create An Intro Paragraph
- Create A Conclusion Paragraph
- Create Main Content
- Create Meta Descriptions
- Create List
When clicking on a module it will expand and give you 3 options. The 1st is a description box where you can enter your description of the content you’d like. It allows up to 120 characters maximum for a description. So for example, if you choose the “Create Article Headings” module, it asks “Create article headings about?” and you’d type something like:
The best dog training treats
This would then generate a few different article heading ideas about the best dog training treats.
The AI will not allow certain illicit topics or descriptions to be used. It also will not allow aggressive or angry commands so please use your best judgment when entering descriptions. If the AI decides that any of the command or description goes against its rules it will not return a response and instead will return an error.
Tone of Voice
Next, you will see an option to enter the tone of voice of the response. The default is neutral. If you don’t want a specific tone of voice you can just leave this area blank. An example would be something like funny or engaging. Usually, 1 word descriptions work best for the tone of voice but you can experiment for your needs.
The last option is the length of the response with 3 options short, medium, and long. These are not exact but allow you to control the maximum amount of words the response would generate. This way you can better control how many AI Credits you use. Keep in mind, occasionally the AI generator might not finish a full sentence if the length setting is too short.
Generating AI Content
Anytime you generate text using the AI Content Generator it will load the AI response at the bottom of the current text in the text editor. You may need to scroll down in the text editor to see the response. Responses can sometimes take up to 30 seconds to generate so please be patient. Responses may also need to be reformatted manually to fit your needs.
Most of the time the same description and settings will return different responses. So you may try the exact same settings to receive more ideas or different responses. Occasionally though, the same settings may return the same response. Unfortunately, this is completely up to the AI and we have no control over the responses.
Using AI Content
Our current stance on using AI content is that it is best used to generate ideas and help with writer’s block. AI content tends to be generic and not always 100% factual. The best results will probably be achieved by taking the responses or ideas generated and then editing and adding your own words and style.
As with anything when it comes to SEO, trying to take shortcuts usually doesn’t lead to the best long term results. With that said, AI content generation can be extremely useful for speeding up your workflow. Use your best judgment and experiment. It can be a lot of fun!
