The publication predicts that more routine jobs will replace people with machines, leaving more complicated tasks to human beings capable of seeing the big picture and knowing how to interpret problems while offering the solutions.
Digital marketing is already leaps and bounds ahead of the workplace in how artificial intelligence is used to promote business growth. This article will reveal how AI is being used in digital marketing today, and where it will head in the future.
The Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in SEO
More than 92 per cent of all Internet searches are performed using Google. That said, the ability to rank your content in Google’s SERPs is a necessary step for most businesses trying to grow. And since Google’s algorithm uses AI coupled with machine learning to understand search intent and rank content according to the user’s needs, organic search strategies must be created by digital marketing agencies with SEO experts who know how to create content favoured by the search engine and that resonates with target customers.
On October 26, 2015, Google confirmed RankBrain, an algorithm running on an artificial intelligence system that self-educates and guesses what searchers meanwhile looking at records and results. Then Google uses the data to present results that provide a better user experience.
Currently, AI is utilized in digital marketing to collect data on ads targeting, to decide the relevancy of content, to perceive customer segments for cross-selling, for streamlining ads campaigns and evaluating which emotional values have the maximum effect on their targeted market.
In order to be found in Google, 70 per cent of your strategy will rely on creating amazing content. Gone are the days where stuffing content with keywords and linking from directories moved websites onto the first page of Google. Artificial intelligence now works with machine learning technology to make Google’s algorithm more human than ever, and in order to stay in the search engine’s good graces, your content must have that human touch. In other words, it must be written for specific audiences, touching on their common needs and pain points, while educating people and providing solutions.
