(7) How AI is Revolutionizing Long-Form SEO Blog Writing

This podcast episode, featuring Justin Mcgill of Content at Scale AI, takes a different approach to most other opinions on the matter. This is one of the few pieces of SEO-based media taking a pro-AI stance with a direct, vested interested in AI content creation and tools.

With these podcast episodes summarized, I’d like to additionally cover some key takeaways from these podcasts. If you lack the time to listen to these podcasts, or just want the general ideas and perspectives going around, here are the most prominent points:


  • AI is a tool, not a replacement. While the technology — especially with ChatGPT — is powerful, it still seems to lack the human element necessary. It doesn’t develop a unique voice naturally and doesn’t add story into its content writing, which is a key component of Google’s E-E-A-T.


  • There is severe disagreement about the direction AI will take between individuals. Considering that there have been proponents of both AI creation and AI detection on this post’s list, this shouldn’t surprise anybody. Some think it will help Google, others think it will hinder. Some believe it could replace jobs, others see new job opportunities, such as prompt engineering, where the main point is to effectively prompt AI and add human voice to generate high quality content at a faster pace.


  • More experimentation is needed. Simply put, many of the guests and hosts on these podcasts say in unison that the best way to stay on top of AI and fully realize its potential is to play around with it. Play around with prompts and discover best practices. This is somewhat of a technological wild west, after all.


  • Many commented on how they started to replace Google with ChatGPT prompts. It’s worth keeping an eye on how Google, Bing, and other search engines will live in a world where an intelligence can automatically give far more specified answers than a search engine when written to correctly.


  • SEO will be able to take on a more sophisticated role as search engines like Google trend towards fixating the human element that separates real content from AI content. In essence, SEO experts may have an easier time attaining organic traffic, moving said traffic deeper in the funnel, and distinguishing the statistical difference to show value to companies and marketing departments. That’s not to say that this isn’t currently possible, but rather that it will likely get easier with the evolution of AI.


Bonus: SEO + AI Show

That’s right! An entire podcast dedicated to this exact combination of topics. They discuss concepts such as AutoGPT, use of AI for featured snippets, the newest AI models, and more. Each episode nears an hour, and the show includes original articles on AI topics as well. If you want to hear more about the combination of these two topics, this bi-weekly podcast hosted by Josh and Greg, founders of the KeywordSpy project, is the podcast to check out.


With an exhaustive list of AI and SEO podcasts, you will be more than ready to use AI effectively in your SEO, content writing, and overall digital marketing practices. Even if you don’t use AI, all the items on this list are solid resources to advance in the topic and figure out more.
