Why humanizing AI content doesn’t work

CyberSEO Pro - Why humanizing AI content doesn’t work

Various online services offer what they call “humanization” of content generated by language AI models, promising that if you select the option to “write like a 7-year-old child,” your text will not be recognized by GPT detectors. Yes, you can specify such a preference in your prompt, but this will not only significantly degrade the quality of your content, turning readers away, but it will also not hinder the operation of GPT detectors, and here’s why.

First, it’s important to understand how detectors for content generated by language AI models work. They do not assess your text for literacy or try to determine whether it was written by an adult, a child, or someone with mental disorders, as such analysis is not part of their function. The task of GPT detectors is to identify the GPT flow – a specific sequence of tokens generated by language AI models. They just attempt to foresee each subsequent token as though they were composing the text themselves.

In fact, GPT detectors are AI models, but they are not identical to those that originally generated the text. They are different, yet operate on a similar principle, often belonging to a previous generation. When analyzing text, they assess the likelihood of how they would sequence each subsequent token following the previous one. As a result, it is virtually impossible to deceive a GPT detector with even the most ingenious prompt, because the generated text will inevitably adhere to the characteristic GPT flow.

So, how can you confuse GPT? We have already provided the answer in our previous articles, for example, here. The essence of the method described there is very simple – your text must be processed by a synonymizer or content spinner. But not just any spinner; it must be the simplest robotic spinner that replaces certain words and phrases in the text without analyzing the context.

Indeed, you can now find a multitude of content spinners that also utilize AI models in their operations, i.e., they rewrite your content originally generated by one language AI model using another language AI model. As a result, the text is rewritten and reorganized, but this new text still follows the GPT flow, making it easy for a GPT detector to recognize the AI nature of your rewritten text.

On the other hand, a basic synonymizer-robot that uses a simple table of synonyms for random replacement of words and phrases from a list, such as replacing “this drone” with “the drone”, completely disrupts the smooth GPT flow. This method confuses AI content detectors, leading them to classify your text as 100% human-written. However, while this may technically deceive the detectors, it significantly degrades the quality of the content, making it less readable and useful.

Therefore, we do not recommend this approach as a practical solution. Instead, focus on generating high-quality content that provides real value to readers. This will ensure your content is appreciated and ranks well without resorting to such measures.

Now, a few words on why there’s even a need to humanize content. The answer is simple – there isn’t one. The fact is that search engines do not penalize or de-index content solely because it is created by a language AI model. They de-index spam, regardless of whether it was written by a human or generated by a neural network.

Google itself sells access to the API of its language AI model, Gemini Pro, which, according to representatives of Google, is supposed to help people create higher quality content for the internet. Do you really think it would penalize content created by its own commercial AI model? That’s not how business is done.

Unfortunately, with the emergence of ChatGPT, many have sought to use it not for generating valuable content, but for mass-producing doorways for spam. As a result, tons of spam have been generated using AI because that was the intent.

If you want to create high-quality content that doesn’t need any “humanization” (as we’ve determined, it doesn’t work anyway), use services and plugins/scripts that allow you to generate content that provides useful information to readers. Models like OpenAI’s GPT-4, Anthropic’s Claude 3, and Google’s Gemini Pro 1.5 contain a vast amount of invaluable knowledge from across the internet. Essentially, they “know” much more than Wikipedia, and your task is to extract this knowledge from them.

For these purposes, you will need tools that give you the ability to write your own prompts, rather than setting up a bunch of switches and dropdown menus that severely limit your capabilities. The CyberSEO Pro and AI Autoblogger plugins are designed to give users full control over the prompts, enabling them to achieve the highest quality from the content they generate – both textual and graphical. After all, any article on the internet needs beautiful and relevant illustrations to attract rather than repel the reader.

If you truly want to humanize AI-generated articles, use detailed prompts that guide the neural network to generate rich HTML content with excellent structure, written in a good style, featuring various useful quotes, links to reputable sources, and most importantly, thoroughly covering the main topic to provide valuable information for the reader. Modern language models like OpenAI’s GPT-4 possess a virtually limitless knowledge base, and your prompts should be designed to extract that information effectively. Additionally, don’t skimp on high-quality contextual illustrations -use Midjourney for this purpose.

In essence, the quality of AI-generated content heavily relies on the quality of the prompts provided. Crafting detailed, specific prompts ensures the generated content is not only informative but also engaging and well-structured. Including reputable sources and relevant quotes enriches the content, making it more trustworthy and credible. High-quality illustrations further enhance the reader’s experience, making the content visually appealing and easier to digest.

Remember, the goal is to create content that resonates with readers, offering them clear, concise, and valuable information. By leveraging the capabilities of advanced language models and incorporating rich, contextual media, you can significantly elevate the quality and effectiveness of AI-generated articles.

Use the right tools for generating AI content and learn to write the right prompts, as this is the key to your success!

If you still have doubts that search engines do not de-index content created with AI, consider this article (the very one you’re reading), created using OpenAI’s GPT-4 Turbo. It appears high in Google rankings because it offers valuable information, not spam.
