ChatGPT is an easy to use AI tool that can help you write, edit and research your blog articles.
This article is for people who write content and want to use AI to streamline their content creation process.
If you have never used Chat GPT or other advanced AI models before you can read this article on how to get started: How do you chat with GPT 3 online?
For more general prompting advice I also recommend this post: AI for website owners: How to harness its mind-blowing capabilities
I don’t recommend using ChatGPT to write entire articles – I found the output to be bland and generic. It’s probably 5/10 content at the moment.
With advanced ChatGPT prompting the quality of the output can be improved but good copywriters can still outperform AI tools.
ChatGPT however is great as a supplementary tool for copywriters as I’ll demonstrate to you below.

Summarize a block of text or website page
Use ChatGPT to summarize a block of text. To summarize a web page you will need to copy the text from the web page first and paste it into the ChatGPT prompt. This example takes the text from the Google Spam Update page (https://developers.google.com/search/updates/spam-updates) and asks ChatGPT to summarize it.
“While Google’s automated systems to detect search spam are constantly operating, we occasionally make notable improvements to how they work. When we do, we refer to this as a spam update and share when they happen on our list of Google Search ranking updates. For example, SpamBrain is our AI-based spam-prevention system. From time-to-time, we improve that system to make it better at spotting spam and to help ensure it catches new types of spam. Sites that see a change after a spam update should review our spam policies to ensure they are complying with those. Sites that violate our policies may rank lower in results or not appear in results at all. Making changes may help a site improve if our automated systems learn over a period of months that the site complies with our spam policies. In the case of a link spam update (an update that specifically deals with link spam), making changes might not generate an improvement. This is because when our systems remove the effects spammy links may have, any ranking benefit the links may have previously generated for your site is lost. Any potential ranking benefits generated by those links cannot be regained.”. Summarize this.
Google’s automated systems to detect search spam are constantly operating and are occasionally improved with updates referred to as spam updates. The AI-based spam-prevention system SpamBrain is one of these systems that is improved from time to time to better detect spam and catch new types of spam. Sites that see a change after a spam update should review Google’s spam policies to ensure compliance, as sites that violate these policies may rank lower or not appear in search results at all. In the case of a link spam update, making changes may not generate improvement as the ranking benefits of spammy links are lost when the effects of these links are removed by Google’s systems.
We can continue to give instructions to ChatGPT and it will understand the context. It remembers what you have typed previously.
In the next prompt the “it” refers to the web page we asked it to summarise.
convert it into 4 bullet points

Proof read your content
We always need to edit content to fix typos, grammar and readability issues. Why not see if ChatGPT can help us?
“Here is a simpl sentence, with some poor, grammer. I wonder if ChatGPT can help us fix it?”. Proof read this, fix spelling mistakes and grammar issues.
“Here is a simple sentence with some poor grammar. I wonder if ChatGPT can help us fix it?”
There, I fixed the spelling mistakes and grammar issues in your sentence. Is there anything else you would like me to help with?
Mind map a topic
Let ChatGPT help you think about a topic before you decide what you want to write about it.
mind map the topic “internal linking for improved SEO”
I’m sorry, but I am unable to create visual graphics or mind maps. However, I can suggest some main points that could be included in a mind map on the topic of “internal linking for improved SEO”:
- Definition of internal linking
- Benefits of internal linking for SEO
- Improved navigation for users
- Increased crawlability for search engines
- Enhanced distribution of link equity

Simplify your text
Need to simplify your text? No problem, ChatGPT can help you with that.
“Google has released several updates to combat spam and improve the overall quality of search results. These updates include the “Penguin” update, which targeted websites that engage in link schemes and manipulative practices, and the “Medic” update, which focused on improving the quality of websites in the health and wellness space. Google also released the “Intrusive Interstitial Penalty,” which penalizes websites that use pop-ups or other types of interstitials that interfere with the user experience. The company has also implemented measures to combat spam in local search results and has released guidelines for webmasters to follow in order to avoid spam-related penalties.” Simplify this text.
Google has released updates to improve search results and reduce spam.

You can get ChatGPT to explain complicated topics to you and your audience by using the following prompt:
explain bitcoin to me like im five. use funny examples.
Okay! Let’s see if we can explain bitcoin in a way that a five-year-old would understand. Here we go:
Bitcoin is like a special kind of money that you can use to buy things online. It’s kind of like the Monopoly money you use to buy fake houses and hotels in the board game, but for real life.
But instead of using your hands to hold the money, you use something called a “wallet” to keep track of your bitcoins. It’s like a special bank account that only holds bitcoins instead of regular money.
And instead of going to a store to buy things, you can use your bitcoins to buy things from people all around the world, just by using your computer or phone. It’s kind of like using a special kind of magic to buy things, but with computers instead of wands.
So, that’s bitcoin in a nutshell! Do you have any questions about it?
Convert text to active voice
Text that uses active voice is more readable and is the preferred when writing content for blog articles. Let’s see if ChatGPT can convert some text into active voice.
“SEO can be used to improve your ranking positions”. Use active voice for this text.
“You can use SEO to improve your ranking positions.”
