Business Roundup Week Ending March 3
Yoast’s Sam Alderson posted about Ai Content and whether it helps or hurts your SEO.
• AI-generated content is becoming increasingly popular due to its ease of use and scalability, but it lacks originality and authenticity.
• Algorithms can replicate existing patterns and preferences, resulting in content that reinforces stereotypes, bias, and exclusionary practices.
• Content creators must be aware of the data and algorithms used by AI tools to ensure their content is authentic, diverse, and inclusive.
• They should strive to create content that is accessible to the broadest possible audience to break the cycle of repeating the same content.
• Tools such as Yoast SEO’s Inclusive Language Analysis are available to help identify the non-inclusive language for a more equitable internet for future generations.

Speaking of Yoast SEO’s Inclusive Language Analysis, Edwin Toonen wrote a post about the updates to the feature in Yoast 19.14:
• Yoast SEO 19.14 includes the first wave of improvements to the inclusive language analysis.
• Fine-tuned list of non-inclusive phrases and expanded with more words.
• Added more alternatives for some terms to suggest changes.
• Improved feedback writers receive.
• Takes into account the context of phrases with function words, participles, and punctuation marks to determine if terms are used in a non-inclusive way and provide feedback for potential changes.
