AI Change SEO for Creatorpreneurs

I’m usually not one to get concerned by the latest technology and I’ve made a point to build multiple streams of income and sources of traffic. But one of the most successful traffic channels I’ve built is through search engine optimization — and the advent of AI is promising to change how search engines (and SEO) work. 

So what does the advent of AI-driven search engines and SEO tools going to mean for my business? Will this source of traffic that has been fairly consistent for the past 10 years dry up overnight?

I’ve been following the latest trends through Search Engine Land and other SEO experts, but I decided to go directly to the source and ask Google itself.

Google Bard told me that AI is rapidly changing the world, and the field of SEO is no exception. AI-powered tools are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and they are capable of performing many of the tasks that were once done by human SEOs.

Google acknowledged my concern, but assured me that there is no need to panic. AI can actually be a powerful tool for SEO, and it can help creatorpreneurs improve their websites' visibility in search engines.

Bard also gave me a few tips for digital entrepreneurs who are concerned about AI's impact on SEO:

  • Don't be afraid of AI. AI is a powerful tool that can be used to improve SEO. Instead of fearing it, embrace it and learn how to use it to your advantage.
  • Focus on quality content. AI can help you to create and distribute high-quality content, which is essential for SEO success. However, it is important to remember that AI cannot replace human creativity. Make sure that your content is original and engaging, and that it provides value to your audience.
  • Use AI to automate tasks. AI can be a great way to automate some of the tasks involved in SEO, such as keyword research and content analysis. This will free up your time so that you can focus on creating high-quality content.
  • Stay up-to-date on the latest SEO trends. The field of SEO is constantly evolving, and it is important to stay up-to-date on the latest trends. This will help you to ensure that your website is optimized for the latest search engines.

By following these tips, creative digital entrepreneurs like you can use AI to improve their SEO and reach a wider audience. Here are some additional tips that creatorpreneurs can use to improve their SEO:

  • Create content that is relevant to your target audience. This means understanding what your audience is interested in and creating content that will appeal to them.
  • Use keywords throughout your content. When you use keywords throughout your content, you are telling search engines what your content is about. This will help your content to rank higher in search results.
  • Promote your content on social media. Social media is a great way to get your content in front of more people. When you share your content on social media, be sure to use relevant hashtags so that people can find it.
  • Build links to your website. Links from other websites to your website are a signal to search engines that your website is high-quality and trustworthy. There are a number of ways to build links to your website, such as guest blogging, participating in online forums, and submitting your website to directories.

While this all sounds like what I've been doing for decades, if you're new to SEO -- or content creation and marketing in general -- this may seem a bit overwhelming. So I've created a course to help you learn more how to optimize your site for SEO and I'm continually updating it with tips, strategies, and new tools.
