Content is the best SEO tool on the Internet. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at what Google has done to promote original content (that you can read online):
One Google product, My Google, is “igniting curiosity and generating empathy.” This interface allows users to draw out content from a digital newspaper using a global search index and related snippets to create a customised story.

The Atlantic, my favorite publication, has done a fantastic job at getting a high level of engagement from its readers. I’ve discovered that people are responding to their voices through Twitter, and they’re using that platform to communicate with their fellow citizens.
All of these examples show that when done correctly, original content helps enrich users’ online experience by presenting more relevant content to consumers. And it’s not just content people consume: It’s valuable for them to consume.
On average, our attention spans have been shrinking, and we’re scanning for better-suited content to discover and stay updated on our favorite interests.
Cognitive deficits are the most significant issues affecting artificial intelligence, and how it contributes to our digital experience — as we become more distracted by technology, technological-driven problems will worsen. There’s nothing more discouraging than being mesmerized by a digital experience — or growing paralyzed by technology. What’s helpful is when technology catches up to users, which it has started to do.
The term “digital cocoon” describes how social media leads to negative social impacts. From a hacker’s perspective, organisations are falling behind in security strategies due to how complex the connectivity is across all environments, from platforms to applications to devices to content.
Bottom line: I’m a developer, and they’re already solving some of the more significant issues around data privacy and security. They’re helping everyone create privacy policies to protect the data they have on their customers. They’re enabling more personalisation, and they’re making it possible for everyone to build and run new services, like decentralised apps.
But there are still a lot of untapped possibilities in the world of artificial intelligence. There are no easy answers.
When we look at original content, we also realise that it affects the way we type on mobile phones and the speed at which we read, because we now have a deeper understanding of our context. We understand that people like to read when they’re busy, but we still find it important to read where we’re most comfortable, because, as Adele Balbierz said, “we don’t like to be on a grid.” The key is to ensure that rich content is on our experiences wherever we are — in-app, in online, through voice, through the mail, through our phone.
Content is not an easy thing for businesses to crack and master in the modern era. Just like consumers, content creators need to establish emotional connections, so that users will continue to be intrigued with your content and go online to learn more about it. Their journey will likely take them to where they’re looking — whether that’s on their phone, the subway, the study hall or their workplace.
There’s no shortage of platforms like Medium and Medium Stories that allow for intelligent content in today’s world. The services are providing the gateway and the familiarity, while a company like PayPal can take on a third-party role.
In today’s world, as with any good algorithm, we should accept that content itself is not as important as its implementation. We should focus on creating great content, wherever it’s distributed — digital or not.
