What is Keyword Research?
A Critical Marketing Exercise
Before exploring the features of Content at scale or any other AI writing tool, it is critical for our readers to understand that successful ranking of content writing on search engines is only attainable through proper keyword research. Whatever AI content tool you are using, always invest the time to build a good keyword strategy.
Keyword research is the very foundation of a successful Search engine optimization (SEO) strategy. Have a solid keyword research strategy and watch your content climb the search engine ranks faster than you can say ‘Google’s first page’!
For more information on how to carry out keyword research refer to the detailed keyword strategy here. Semrush or other keyword research tools can be utilized to identify low-competition-high-value keywords that you can target.
What is Content at Scale?
Content at scale is a type of artificial intelligence technology (AI Writing tool) that enables content creators to produce high-quality, consistent content quickly and efficiently.
It is the first AI platform of its kind that allows users to publish material in bulk that is:
- Fully optimized;
- Of highest quality;
- Readily optimized for SEO;
- Can bypass AI detection tools and plagiarism scanners;
- Producing facts backed up with a source;
The key advantage of using a platform such as Content at Scale is in its ability to generate unique and personalized output in a fraction of the time with as little input as possible such as one keyword or a URL of an already existing blog post.
This technology uses natural language processing (NLP) algorithms to analyze large amounts of data and generate unique, relevant content based on the input provided.
One popular application of Content at Scale is SEO optimization; Before initiating content creation, Content at Scale’s AI engines crawl top-ranking sites for the chosen keywords to ensure that generated content is based off top performing pages. This process guarantees that the final product is of high-quality and readily optimized to rank.
From a technical perspective, Content at Scale uses Generative Pre trained Transformer (GPT) technology which consists of two natural language processing and semantic analysis algorithms working in parallel to three artificial intelligence engines.
What makes Content at Scale Unique?
Other AI writing tools on the market require constant input throughout the drafting of an article, requiring further SEO optimization through other tools (eg. Surfer SEO) to make sure it is search engine optimized.
Content at Scale enables content creators to give the engine one single input (to be discussed in detail later) in order to render a high quality article automatically in a matter of minutes, which is already SEO optimized (including meta description). It will take you a maximum of 10-20 minutes (depending on the article) to brush up your content and voila’ – ready!

How to Use Content at Scale 2.0
This section shows a step-by-step process on how you can write long form content using Content at Scale’s AI writing software in just a few minutes.
1) Once you create an account you’ll be prompted by an empty dashboard. To start off, you must click on ‘create project’.
2) Input project details, including website information, project context (which is strongly recommended) and details of the target audience. This is required only once if you will be targeting one audience and publishing content (1 article or more) on one website.
3) Once you Create your Project, your Dashboard will look similar to the one portrayed in the screenshot below. To start creating content, click on ‘Add Content’.
4) As already mentioned, Content at scale works best if you pick your informational keywords, articles or multimedia strategically. As shown below, there are several input methods.
5) Depending on the input option selected, Content At Scale will require further information. For the purpose of this example we selected “From a Keyword” as it is the one that prompts you with most data fields. If you choose from YouTube or existing blog post URL you are only required to provide the specific URL to create your content.
- Informational Keywords: Input one keyword or upload a number of keywords in batch (in a .CSV file).
- Word Count: Should represent the number of words generated by the AI copywriting software. This determines the length of your article. Make sure to apply a relevant word count that is relevant to your audience.
- Additional Context: Marked as optional, this input should establish topical boundaries. If left blank, the AI engine will create content more freely, exploring different topics around the chosen keywords. This makes the article more comprehensive but less focused on a particular topic.
- Customizing content: Click on the ‘customize button’ to be prompted with a list of headings to be included in the ai written content. At this stage, users can add, remove or reword headings which will instruct the AI to produce content accordingly. Users can opt to re-run the process of generating the article if they missed on something. It is very generous of Content at Scale to run re-generations of an article with no added cost (no credits used). Thumbs up Content at scale!
- Instant vs Queued output: As a last step, users choose whether to create content immediately or submit it to a queue. It is strongly suggested to submit keywords to a queue if multiple keywords are uploaded on a .CSV file. Content at scale would otherwise use up credits to immediately create multiple articles.
6) Once you are satisfied with the input fields for your content, go grab a cold beer or cocktail and In a few minutes you will see that your article has been created with status “Ready for Optimization”. The next Step requires you to edit/add more content in the content editor before publishing.

Content At Scale AI Detector & Plagiarism Scanner
Search engines such as Google adhere to strict guidelines when it comes to measuring quality content. If a website or platform contains AI-generated content, search engines penalize content and at times remove it completely from generated search results. This can greatly decrease website and/or content visibility and reduce traffic drastically.
As part of their product offering, Content At Scale provides a highly effective AI detector that helps users identify content flagged as ‘AI-generated’.
This content can be easily removed and updated to safeguard from the content police out there. Content at scale’s AI detector is currently available for free for the general public and is now integrated in the content editor of Content at scale version 2.0.

It is highly recommended to use the AI content detector and publish content with a score of 90% or more. Lower scores may be captured by the AI detection crawlers applied by search engines. As AI is a new technology, it is advised to run the generated content across multiple AI detection services.
Another very effective and cheap AI detection service is Originality that provides a score reflecting the AI’s confidence that content was produced by an AI tool using GPT-2, GPT-J, GPT-NEO or GPT-3
This also applies for the plagiarism checker provided by Content at scale, which is embedded within Content at scale in the same way AI content detections is.

The AIO Writer’s Framework
The advancement of GPT-4 and Content at Scale’s proprietary NLP algorithms has yet to produce AI-generated writing that’s immediately ready for publication.
This is because AI lacks the ability to capture personal experiences, client emotions, and unique tones. To address this, the C.R.A.F.T. framework was developed to help writers effectively navigate the AIO approach.
By following its principles—cutting fluff, optimizing with keywords, incorporating visuals, fact-checking, and building trust through personal narratives and authoritative links—writers can transform AI-generated content into engaging and accurate pieces. You can find a more comprehensive explanation of this framework from Content at Scale themselves.
Content at Scale Vs Other AI Content Writers
Content at Scale is unlike anything else on the market. Other content writing software covers one layer of the multiple algorithms running on Content at scale. This enables the platform to generate high-quality content with as little human intervention as possible.
When looking into the detail of the features offered by Content at scale as opposed to its competitors, there is one element that is missing from the rest. The functions vs focus templates for users on conventional AI writers require users to choose a template or framework to give context to the AI engine. Content is also formatted in certain ways as predefined by the chosen template.
Content at Scale is an AI writing machine that writes whole long-form drafts from as little as a single input such as a topic or keyword. This shows the power of the AI engine running this software, offering limitless combinations of creating unique content as opposed to predefined content with other competitors.
Content at scale is the perfect tool for publishers, business owners, and bloggers who want an AI writer to provide an entire blog post with little to no intervention by human writers. Jasper and other competing brands on the other hand are useful for users looking for an AI-writing assistant that helps create ad copy faster and other frameworks with heavy human intervention along the creation process.
Another distinction between Content at scale and other content writers is how SEO is managed. Content writers such as Jasper allow for an integration with Surfer SEO to optimize content production with respect to a target keyword pulled from high ranking websites. Content at Scale on the other hand provides an on-page SEO checklist within the native editor together with all NLP keywords pulled from top ranking articles.
