Handing off the entire content creation part to tools like Chat GPT may not be the best for your site’s health.
The Disadvantages of using Chat GPT for SEO
While Chat GPT is an amazing tool to come up with new ideas and for research. It also has a few downsides. So you will have to be careful when you use it for your site’s SEO.
AI content can be detected
Many AI writers already existed before Chat GPT. Of course, Google cannot reduce the quality of search results that users get, so their algorithm can figure out the content that was published by a human being and generated by an AI.
They solved this problem years ago and that is why even your Chat GPT content can be detected by search engines. So, if you are planning on simply copy-pasting Chat GPT answers as insights or blog posts, then it will not get your site anywhere.
Detecting content that has been generated by a machine has been a subject of research for many years. Search engines have got results from this research and when they crawl web pages any AI-generated content will be easily recognizable.
Google also does not value automatically generated content and it considers it to be spammy. So, a word of advice would be to not copy-paste content from Chat GPT.
Current events are unknown
One of the major downsides of Chat GPT is that it only fed data on events that happened before 2021. So, if you are looking to find insight into something that is happening right now, you will find yourself in trouble there.
The content creation world is all about following trends. Anything new has to be covered and if you cannot look for that on Chat GPT, then it provides a huge downside to this tool.
It is a disadvantage that can benefit the competing tools like Chatsonic. This tool includes all the latest data from Google and even accepts voice commands.
Can be inaccurate and biased
While you enter a query and expect an answer from the tool in a matter of minutes. You must know that behind the scenes a lot of mechanisms are taking place and there is always room for error. There have been a lot of occasions when the tool has been seen to provide inaccurate data. While it is a great tool, you cannot rely on it entirely.
If you think that every answer given by Chat GPT is right, then you are putting your business at great risk. Every answer by the tool should be double-checked by a person.
Chat GPT was made on a few ideals like being helpful, truthful, and harmless. These ideals have evolved and become biases for the AI tool. Now it tries to avoid negativity at all costs unless someone pushes the tool in that direction.
Ask the tool to write a short story for you and most of the endings will be positive. If you want a negative ending you will have to interfere with the tool and explicitly state that you want a negative ending.
This is just one of the examples of the biases that this tool has and there can be others too. Content cannot be created with a set of fixed ideals. You may have to create content that has a negative tone. Even if you are just looking to brainstorm, ChatGPT has creative limits because it tries to avoid negativity
Think about all the literary tragedies or movies with sad endings. Despite that, people still love them. That’s why, no matter how smart of a tool you are using, you will always have to guide it correctly. If ideas come out of a limited tool like Chat GPT, then soon art will get mediocre.
You can use the tool but you need to understand its limitations so that you are not affected by it.
Requires highly detailed instructions
Chat GPT requires a highly detailed query to get you high-quality content. If you provide a vague query, then the chances of getting low-quality results are high. Some of the content may not even be related to your query.
However, if you can come up with a detailed query, then you will get a high-quality answer. If you want more from the tool, then you have to think about what you want and then convert it into instructions.
The limitation with Chat GPT is that if you want something, then you are going to have to know it and ask the question. It cannot guess on your behalf, and if the tool tries, then the output is not that valuable.
Chat GPT may contain Watermark in the future
One of the OpenAI researchers has commented that they may release a watermark in the next updates. This means that any content created by the tool will be extremely easy to identify because of the watermark.
AI content can already be identified by search engines and updating the tool with a watermark will further make the life of the users a bit difficult.
Chat GPT is an AI tool that has been trained on a large amount of data to provide answers to queries quickly. It has created a revolution in many industries within a matter of months. Now workers no longer have to perform tedious tasks and can focus their minds on other aspects of a business.
If you want to use Chat GPT, then you can come up with content ideas or create metadata with it. However, it will be a terrible choice to directly paste content from Chat GPT.
If you want to attract customers through SEO, then let your content marketing team do what they are doing. This tool can assist them but it cannot replace them. If you try to paste content from Chat GPT directly, you will find many shortcomings like the content being easily recognized by search engines, biases, lack of recent data, etc.
The content will easily be recognized by Google and your site can even get penalized if you try to use content directly from Chat GPT.
It is a great tool for non-cognitive functions but it is not meant to replace the professionals but rather to aid them in achieving a better search engine rank. For that, your content marketing and SEO team can work together with this awesome new tool by keeping in mind its benefits and limitations.
