One Element Your SEO Strategy is Missing: The Power of AI
In this article, we’ll show you a variety of techniques that you can use to improve your site’s content and performance on the search engine results page (SERP) using AI.
This technology is incredibly powerful, but it’s not without its downsides. Generative AI has a tendency to make up facts, so using content created by AI without carefully verifying accuracy can lead to errors.
While we certainly don’t suggest writing your full website copy or tour commentary with AI, there are still tons of great ways tour operators can use this new technology to level up your SEO strategy with quick implementations that yield impactful results.
The below examples use ChatGPT with prompts you can easily apply to your business.
Cruise for Keywords
Choosing the right keywords to target can make an enormous difference in your website’s search engine performance. Use the prompt below to generate a list of related keywords and the search intent associated with them.
Prompt: Identify 10 keywords related to [topic] and classify their search intent (commercial, transactional or informational) in a table.
Answering frequently asked questions is a great way to improve your page’s performance on the SERP because FAQs show up as rich results (search engine results outside of the standard blue link). Use the prompt below to generate a list of common questions and answers that target your chosen keyword.
These can give you a good jumping off point if you’re making an FAQ page for the first time, and the responses can be further customized to your business.
Prompt: Create a list of [#] frequently asked questions about [keyword] and provide answers for each one of them considering the SERP and rich result guidelines.
In this example, it would be easy to replace the general information with more specific details about your business to customize the answers. For instance, you would add your company’s age and weight restrictions and possibly mention that you offer waterproof phone cases for rent. Remember to always check content generated by AI for accuracy before publishing.
