Human vs AI written content

Compare and guess who wrote what

Wondering what results you might get when scaling content with AI? We’ve decided to check it out. Below you will find all the details of the whole journey.

Why behind the experiment

Introduction

Everywhere we look
there’s a conversation about Artificial Intelligence (AI) content.

Can AI content match up to or even surpass human writing? Is it better or worse than human-written content? Critics argue that AI content lacks the brand voice and authenticity that only a human touch can provide. Some even claim it’s easier to create from scratch than to edit a piece produced by AI.

These are questions sparking debates across the web, and they caught our attention.

So, we decided to step out of the discussion and put the matter to the test.

Our goal? To determine if AI content stands up to the credibility tests, demands of time, and quality that set the standard for human content?

Let’s find out.

Our approach

#1 The AI vs Human Content Experiment description

The following section describes an experiment to compare the efficacy
and quality of content produced by human writers and artificial intelligence.

Inside, you’ll find details about the topic chosen for the experiment, the selection of authors,
and the carefully designed briefing to ensure a balanced competition.

Topics

In our AI versus Human content experiment, we zoomed in on a subject close to home: content clusters. This niche is a comfortable playground for our human copywriters, both of whom come with substantial experience in the marketing sector.

This allows us to analyze the output where human writers can leverage their expertise against AI-generated content that utilizes advanced machine learning techniques.

Briefing

The level playing field was critical. We created a detailed content brief with clear guidelines to ensure fair play. Each participant received the same brief, including:

  • article title,
  • a comprehensive outline to navigate by,
  • a list of focus and secondary keywords to hit,
  • and instructions on the desired tone of voice.

To cap it off, we made sure they knew the suggested article length, the SEO title, and the meta description they needed to craft.

For the sake of the experiment, we limited the word count to 2,000 words. This length is enough to cover the topic and compare the article’s quality. Still, as the topic is broad, the content should likely be longer to give it a better chance to rank.

Who wrote the articles

Three Authors

Three distinct authors were enlisted for this experiment, each bringing a unique perspective.

Author X

The first author stems from a productized content service known for delivering medium-quality content

Author Y

Our second author is a seasoned freelance content writer, a native English speaker with a knack for crafting compelling narratives.

Author Z

We have a unique mix of AI and human work. We used SEOwind to write the initial draft, which was then reviewed by a human expert who speaks English natively and has experience in marketing. However, this expert's main job isn't copywriting.

Introduction comparison

Sample from Article no 1

The SEO optimization landscape is one that shifts quickly, with new strategies taking center stage as previously reliable methods no longer achieve stellar results on their own. Optimizing your SEO to stay ahead of your competition means an approach that not only caters to algorithmic preferences but also to your target audience. 
One method in particular has been showing impressive results for these metrics – Topic Clusters.

Sample from Article no 2

No intro – jumping straight to the first H2

Sample from Article no 3

Digital space has never been more competitive. Numerous companies fight for attention on nearly every topic. As a result, navigating through these innumerable options has become incredibly difficult.

Fortunately, you can gain an edge with topic clusters. This strategy offers your audience with clear pathways to follow when exploring new topics while supporting search engine optimization (SEO).

So, let’s explore this approach, how it works, and the best way to use it.

1st Body copy comparison

Sample from Article no 1

H2 – The Benefits of using Topic Clusters

The reason behind the shift to topic clusters is twofold:

Technical benefits: what we’re currently seeing is a change in the algorithm for major search engines such as Google to prioritize topic-based content. Google and other search engines rank sites more highly if they display expertise and trustworthiness around a particular topic, in fact Google has even gone so far as to develop a topic authority system for more sensitive content such as breaking news.

Customer needs: organizing content in this way will make your site more customer-centric. Organizing your pages into topic clusters will make them more intuitive to explore and will allow you to plan out materials that follow along the customer journey. Rather than pushing out one-off pieces of content that might or might not be loosely related, the topic cluster model will allow customers to deep dive into a specific focus area, making them more likely to engage with more of your pages and to consider you a subject matter expert.

H3 – Increased search engine visibility and organic traffic

The way search engine algorithms rank pages has already been overhauled several times in the past and it’s vital to keep up to date on these changes to pull more organic traffic to your pages. Updating your website structure and content strategy to the topic cluster model will help you to take advantage of the latest changes and bring more visibility to your website.

Sample from Article no 2

H2 – The Benefits of using Topic Clusters

A good strategy is where you and your e-commerce outlet or website receive something valuable from those strategies. When you apply a topic cluster content strategy then your e-commerce store or website should receive the following benefits.

H3 – Increased Search Engine Visibility And Organic Traffic

This is one of your SEO goals, or it should be. To facilitate this objective you need to plan a good topic cluster strategy. The reason you go to all this work is because it helps search engines understand your web pages’ overall themes and then rank those pages better.

A good topic cluster strategy also helps those search engines index your website better which in turn helps to improve your rankings. The better the ranking, the more visibility you get.

Then with the higher visibility and ranking, the greater chance your website has of gathering organic traffic. In the ever-changing SEO world, it pays to utilize every strategy that will not land you in search engine jail.

H2 – The Benefits of Using Topic Clusters

By adopting a topic cluster content strategy, you’re preparing your website to deliver enhanced SEO results. For example, Tao Digital Marketing, reports that by focusing on one topic cluster they managed to increase their client’s leads by 384% in six months, impressions by 137%, and clicks by 411% (Source: Moz Blog).

Let’s take a look at how exactly topic clusters make such an impact.

H3 – Increased Search Engine Visibility And Organic Traffic

First off, let’s talk about search engine visibility. Implementing topic clusters transforms your site’s architecture into a well-organized library instead of a messy stack of individual pages. This allows search engines like Google to decipher site themes more easily, making the most out of valuable positions on search engine result pages (SERPs).

This approach boosts visibility because it helps highlight semantic relationships between various pieces of content clustered around a common theme or subject. As Google becomes better attuned to the context of your content, your web pages will start appearing more frequently and, as a result, for more nuanced searches. Topic clusters make it easier for search engines to identify your expertise, experience, authoritativeness, and trustworthiness (the basis of the E-E-A-T model). As a result, organic traffic increases proportionally.

H2 – How to create an effective Topic Cluster strategy

Now that we’ve established what topic clusters are and how to set them up, let’s dive deeper into how to build the topic cluster strategy. This will require a shift of thought from how you may have previously been working. Instead of thinking about individual keywords and content ideas, the topic cluster strategy is all about grouping related pieces together.

H3 – Step 1: Identify a core pillar topic for your cluster

Identifying core pillar topics for your cluster is key and you should start by brainstorming how you want to present your content:

  • Which topics are more important for your brand?
  • What’s the most relevant for your customers?
  • What areas do you want to compete in most?
  • Where are you considered an expert?
  • Where would you LIKE to be considered an expert?

If we’re thinking about the cooking website, for example, are your customers typically more curious about searching for meals of the day as mentioned earlier, or do they more often ask about specific cuisines? Splitting it by breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert versus Mexican, Mediterranean, Asian, or French dishes would be equally valid options – consider what content you already have, what the needs are for your target audience, and what your competitors are producing.

Connecting everything back to your business strategy is going to help you shape how you want to build everything out. Don’t lose sight of the big picture, always keep these goals in mind when you’re laying out your structure.

H3 – Step 2: Conduct keyword research to find related subtopics

The content pages should answer customer questions within that topic. Going back to the example of the cooking website, you could explore what kinds of things users are usually looking for when they search for “breakfasts”. You could build subpages such as “healthy breakfast ideas for busy families”, “what’s the best way to prepare a scrambled egg”, or “5 must-have kitchen gadgets for the perfect home breakfast experience”. Use tools such as SEOWind or SEMrush to find those specific keywords and topics that people search for the most and build that into your topic cluster content strategy.

Sample from Article no 2

H2 – How to create an effective Topic Cluster strategy

H3 – Step 1: Identify a core pillar topic for your cluster

Before you can build a topic cluster, you need to pick a topic to write about. The topic will be one that you are interested in or one that relates to the products you are selling.

Once you pick a topic, you need to construct it in a way that it focuses on a single topic while leaving room for additional content related to that topic. To write this pillar page you need to focus more on topics than keywords.

One of the keys to writing your pillar page is to be broad enough to generate subtopics. A pillar page is no good if it has nowhere to link to.

H3 – Step 2: Conduct keyword research to find related subtopics

Once you have step one formulated it is time now to proceed with your keyword search. It is essential to use keywords to help you find relevant subtopics that will build your website’s credibility and authority.

The key to success in finding keywords for subtopics is to use general keywords not specific ones in your searches. For example, the keywords ‘personal injury lawyers’ will produce a multitude of subtopics while the phrase ‘personal injury lawyers for prisoners’ will not produce that many.

How you structure your initial keywords will determine the results you will get. You can also use questions in your searches to facilitate a good subtopic result.

Sample from Article no 3

H2 – How to Create an Effective Topic Cluster Strategy

Now that we’ve established what topic clustering is and how it works let’s analyze how we can use topic clusters more effectively.

H3 – Step 1: Identify a Core Pillar Topic for Your Cluster

Identifying a core pillar in your topic cluster strategy outlines the information you intend to convey and what you intend to accomplish.
When choosing your pillar, think about the following:

  • Broad appeal – A good pillar should capture a significant aspect of what you wish your audience to know about you.
  • Topical authority and proficiency – Opt for a topic within your realm of expertise for which you can provide exceptional and comprehensive content.
  • Relevance and market demand – It helps if people want information on these themes, so ensure they’re valuable to potential visitors.

For example, let’s consider the Coffee Brewing Guides page from Coffee and Check. To support its objective of selling coffee-making supplies, the company demonstrates the different ways to brew coffee.

Remember, without an effective foundation, our neighborhood can’t function properly.

H3 – Step 2: Conduct Keyword Research to Find Related Subtopics

Like the Federation exploring new space in Star Trek, keyword research helps identify ideas that are closely related to your core issue but differ enough to work as unique pieces of content. Those are your subtopics!

A few golden rules:

  • Use keyword tools such as Google’s Keyword Planner (free), Semrush (paid), and Ahrefs (paid). Explore Google Autocomplete to find out what people are searching for in relation to your pillar content.
  • Look for search terms directly related to your pillar but only tangentially. They’re members of the same family, but not twins.
  • Pick phrases that receive substantial search volume and for which you can still compete.

Coffee and Check’s pillar page utilizes phrases like “coffee brewing method,” “coffee brewing guide,” “brew the perfect coffee,” “Chemex” or “Aeropress.”

Now armed with your list of keywords, start producing specific yet authentically interconnected cluster content.

Key Takeaways

H2 – Key Takeaways on the future of topic clusters in SEO

Reorganizing the content on your website can seem to be a daunting task, as it requires you to put in much more effort upfront to build the foundation that the rest of your website can use to grow in the right way. The benefits of doing this, however, are extremely clear from both the technical and the customer standpoints as the market has continued to develop and optimize.

The shift to topic clusters is undeniably the next evolution of search engine optimization, so getting on board sooner rather than later will help you keep pace with your competitors. It’s vital to stay on top of the changes in terms of both the search engine algorithm as well as the customer expectations to stay relevant in the market and keep ahead of your competitors.

H2 – Key Takeaways on the Future of Topic Clusters in SEO

Topic clusters are here to stay. They’re not a fleeting trend but an integral part of the modern web structure.

First, let me highlight again that topic clusters are pivotal to achieving organic digital visibility. Search algorithms continue to evolve and understand user intent and relevance more effectively. They’re shifting from recognizing keywords to topics, which helps form a comprehensive understanding of what users seek online. Using topic clusters bases your website’s structure on communicating broader themes, which more effectively engages your audience.

In essence, traditional keyword optimization on its own is already outdated. Google now relies more on semantic searches and contextual relevance. Therein lies the power of topic clusters, which provide abundant context.

Furthermore, long-tail keywords become even more significant as voice search technology continues its upward trajectory through technology like Alexa and Siri. What does that mean for us exactly? Mostly, a well-structured topic cluster strategy capable of capturing such conversational queries is more important than ever.

Finally, remember that quality trumps quantity in today’s SEO playbook. With the growing preference for deeply informative content over superficial clickbait material, topic clusters allow you to delve deeper into specific areas in your field, which inspires closer examination of your expertise and fosters excellent user engagement.

Crafting high-quality pillar pages complemented by valuable cluster content will be a decisive factor that shapes next-level websites for tomorrow’s SEO landscape.

Let’s evaluate the articles

#4 Content Experiment Results

In the following section, you will find the results of our content experiment. 

We used seven key assessment criteria, each aimed at evaluating important aspects of content quality. Additionally, these criteria were applied to compare human and AI-generated content fairly and unbiasedly, using a scoring system that translates subjective judgments into objective scores.

Criteria chosen for the content assessment

Our chosen criteria consist of seven key metrics:

  • Relevance to the topic,
  • Clarity and coherence,
  • Engagement,
  • Readability,
  • Grammar and Style,
  • Originality and Credibility,
  • SEO optimization.

Each of these criteria encapsulates a facet of content that resonates with the searcher and the search engine alike.

To transition from abstract concepts to quantifiable data, we’ve crafted three targeted questions for each criterion that drill down into the specifics of what high-quality content should embody. These questions are purposefully designed to be probing, requiring the evaluator to consider not just the surface-level appearance of the content but the fundamental value it provides.

Accompanying these questions is a 1-to-10 scale tailored to translate subjective observations into objective numbers. A score of 1 suggests the content barely meets the minimum expectations for the criterion in question. At the same time, a 10 means the content excels, setting a benchmark for others to aspire to. This scoring system allows us to paint a detailed picture of how AI and human outputs stack up in a head-to-head content comparison.

Our learnings

#6 Key Takeaways from our Content Experiment
- Human or AI

Let’s summarize our findings from the content experiment that we conducted: 

1. High content quality with AI is possible

Creating content that can compete with or even outperform high-quality writers is possible. Of course, if we had an unlimited budget and gave unlimited time to a human writer, they could outperform our CyborgMethod™ process using AI. Still, we wanted to create a real-world example with the limitations in our daily business life.

2. You can get high-quality content faster and cheaper

The quality of the articles delivered by a seasoned copywriter and SEOwind reviewed by a copywriter is similar. However, it was delivered 5 times faster in terms of time spent, and the price was 5 times cheaper.

3. AI can deliver similar quality as the average copywriter

Average copywriters will likely deliver content quality comparable to AI output before human edits. The more sophisticated AI tools get with aligning content with your brand voice and feeding it with your expertise, the better AI drafts will be.

4. Likely, AI will replace average copywriters

My prediction is that average copywriters are likely to be replaced by AI. The quality they deliver is not good enough. Due to the vast amount of content created by AI, Google needed to raise the bar for accepting high-quality content (HCU update), which reduced the probability of ranking for keywords with just an average piece of content. Therefore, creating high-quality content is important, like never before. However, to increase the ROI and compete in the market, AI is highly needed in the process.

5. Cooperation between Humans and AI brings amazing results

We are strong believers in CyborgMethod™ when creating content. Both we, as humans and AI, have superpowers. By combining these two worlds and making a team out of it, we can get results that were not achievable before. When you consider dimensions like speed, cost, and quality, we can see at least a 5X increase when it comes to ROI. AI is great with nailing the search intent and optimizing for SEO when Human experience is essential to add expertise, experience, and value on top which is essential.

AI articles essentials

#7 Key to writing high-quality articles with AI

Despite the vast potential of AI, creating exceptional content requires more than just a click of a button.  

It entails understanding AI’s capabilities and employing industry best practices.
Here are some proven strategies we have used with our clients:

1. Content brief is a strong foundation.

The right brief is the key. Its most important part is the outline. It’s not about just having the right structure. It’s about covering the right topics to nail the search intent.

  • Use top-performing content, user questions, and SEO data to create top-notch AI content.
  • Don’t allow AI to form outlines based solely on its database and speculative interests, ignoring actual performance data from Google.

2. Feed AI with the right insights

Provide AI with relevant information. Prompting is crucial. If you test various AI writing tools, you will soon notice that AI drafts differ in quality.

  • Use tools that let you:
  • define brand voice,
  • provide up-to-date information about your company and products,
  • specify your target audience,
  • add statistics, quotes, and examples

to make AI content sound like you. The more detailed your instructions, the less editing your AI-generated content will need.

  • Don’t just click “Write me an article. Use informal language”. It lacks enough detail for both humans and AI.

3. In-depth research is necessary

You need to understand your writing topic to create content that strikes a chord with your audience and Google.

  • Use AI tools that perform comprehensive content and keyword research and collect user queries. These are precisely the inputs AI needs to generate relevant content that ranks.
  • Don’t use AI writing tools that only use language models without conducting any research. They will not drive you traffic.

4. Not all AI tools are suited for writing long-form content

When developing extensive articles or blog posts, remember that not every AI tool is equipped to handle this type of content generation efficiently. Some might struggle to maintain a consistent tone or narrative flow, negatively impacting your reader’s experience.

  • Opt for AI tools that specialize in crafting long-form content and can maintain coherence and deliver in-depth analysis or insights throughout the piece.
  • Don’t assume all AI tools can efficiently produce long content is a common mistake. Instead, test various tools and select the one that best suits your need for lengthier pieces.

5. Use CyborgMethod™

Enhancement, not replacement of human effort – that’s the concept behind the CyborgMethod™. With this method, you leverage the strengths of both entities to produce superior-quality content that stands out.

  • Collaborate with AI at every stage of the creative process. AI can vastly simplify the process, but adding your touch for extra value is essential.
  • Don’t depend on AI to do all the work without your involvement. Avoid being passive in the content creation process.
