Is Google OK With AI Generated Content?

While Google allows AI-generated content, there are very specific parameters that marketers have to know and adhere to. Otherwise, your SEO will ultimately negatively impact your client goals. 

Merely incorporating AI into your strategy won’t penalize you, but what will is the lack of substance in your content. Google sees “fluff” posts as negative to the search engine because, truthfully, the reader will likely feel more frustrated after reading them.

The key is to leverage AI as a tool alongside human creators and editors, not as a substitute. You can harness AI’s potential as an accelerator, supporting or spurring inspiration, but ultimately, you’ll want to create content that the user is searching for.
