Introduction to Article Engine

Welcome to Article Engine, your go-to solution for AI-driven content creation, designed to simplify the process of generating SEO-optimized articles.

This guide aims to walk you through the features of Article Engine, demonstrating how you can use it to produce content that not only engages your readers but also enhances your online visibility.

Getting Started: How to Create Your Article

Initiating Article Creation

Kickstart your article creation process by choosing one of the following methods:

Humanize Content

Enhance the readability of your article with our Humanize Content feature, available for an additional credit. This service employs our specialized humanizing model to revise your article, ensuring the narrative is fluid, natural, and mirrors a human writer's tone.

Upon completion, we will assess the article using a reputable third-party AI detection tool to determine the human-likeness of the content. If it registers more than 50% as AI-generated, we will automatically refund the additional credit.

AI Detector Results

Keep in mind that AI detectors can sometimes produce false positives. They should not be your sole criterion for judging content quality. Instead, evaluate the content's engagement and informativeness to truly measure its value.

Article Type Selector

Using the selector you can choose from two different types of articles:

  • A regular article like: "Conversion Rate Optimization Secrets of the Pros".
  • Or a listicle type article like: "7 CRO Hacks to Double Your Conversions".
  • When creating a listicle type article, its best to constrain the number of items to 20 or less.

From Title to Article

With your title set, you have two paths:

  • Move directly to generating your article's outline.
  • Dive into advanced options to tailor your article's depth and focus further.

Advanced Customization Features

Enhance your article's credibility by including 3 to 5 links to reputable sources. This not only enriches your content but also boosts your SEO performance by linking to authoritative sites.

Article Intent

Choose the purpose of your article to align with your content strategy:

  • Convince: Persuade your audience towards a particular action or viewpoint.
  • Inform: Offer valuable information or insights on a topic.
  • Describe: Provide detailed descriptions of people, places, events, or experiences.
  • Narrate: Tell a story that captivates and engages your readers.

Audience

Identify who you're writing for to fine-tune your content's tone and complexity:

  • General Audience: Accessible to everyone.
  • Experts: For those with in-depth knowledge of the subject.
  • Knowledgeable Readers: Assumes a basic understanding of the topic.

Language

Article Engine supports an array of languages, enabling you to reach a global audience.

To boost your article's navigability and SEO, Article Engine can automatically insert 3 to 5 internal links. This process begins by analyzing your website's sitemap, a crucial step for identifying relevant internal pages that can be linked within your content.

The Process of Segmenting Your Sitemap

Segmentation is key to effectively utilizing this feature. Here’s how it works:

Sitemap segments
  • Sitemap Analysis: The tool first requires access to your site's sitemap. This sitemap acts as a roadmap of all your website's pages, enabling Article Engine to understand the structure and content of your site.
  • Creating Segments: You can then segment this sitemap based on specific criteria, such as page type or content category. For example, if you want to link to blog posts, you could create a segment for URLs containing /blog/.

  • Selecting Segments for Linking: Once your segments are defined, you choose which one you'd like to use for internal linking within your article. Article Engine will select pages from this segment, ensuring that the internal links are relevant and add value to your content.

This targeted approach not only enhances the user experience by providing relevant additional reading options but also strengthens your website's SEO by creating a well-interconnected content network. Please note, utilizing the internal linking feature will increase the article cost by 1 credit, but it's a valuable investment for improving your content's performance and visibility.

Call to Action

Conclude your article by embedding a persuasive call to action (CTA) that flows naturally with the content, aiming to boost reader engagement or prompt a specific response. Simply specify the details of your desired CTA, and Article Engine will skillfully weave it into the end of your article, making it a coherent and effective part of your message.

Structure Refinement

Provide specific instructions for Article Engine during the outline process to ensure your article meets your desired format and includes all necessary elements.
