Number of Headings

Next, you need to select several headings you want to include. Now you must be wondering how to determine the same right?

Well, the easiest way is to Google your researched keyword, see how many headings are used by the top 10 ranking websites, and use the same in your blog post.

How to use ChatGPT with SurferSEO for creating an SEO-optimized blog in 1 Click 42

You can use Chrome extensions like “HeadingsMap” to strip down the headings count of any page as above.

You can also get ideas from SurferSEO insights while writing your draft to determine what kind of content is ranking on top for specific keywords; this way you can easily build an SEO-optimized Blog post.

On the right side of your SurferSEO panel, there’s a range of sets of headings you can include in the Zimmwriter, as you can see below;

How to use ChatGPT with SurferSEO for creating an SEO-optimized blog in 1 Click 43

I suggest you include the initial set of headings, i.e. in the above example, 26.

H2 SubHeadings Data

Next, You need to select Set H2 Subheading Data in the next section, For this, you have three options available:

Option 1: Copy H2 From Clipboard

If you have your headings sorted already, then all you need to do is to copy the headings from your sheet or doc and click option 1 from the menu, and it will get pasted as below;

How to use ChatGPT with SurferSEO for creating an SEO-optimized blog in 1 Click 44

If you want to add manually, then you can start adding in the following fields:

How to use ChatGPT with SurferSEO for creating an SEO-optimized blog in 1 Click 45

Pro Tip: If the content you’ll write about is something beyond 2021, then you should start adding background to it as ChatGPT has not yet consumed data beyond 2021. Therefore, adding background will be ideal if you want your content to be factually correct.

To enable H2 Background, all you need to do is to check “H2 Background” and start adding background information for each subheading as below;

How to use ChatGPT with SurferSEO for creating an SEO-optimized blog in 1 Click 46

Option 2: Generate H2 Using Only AI

If you want to let ChatGPT handles everything, then you need to do anything select this option and let the tool generate H2 Subheadings for your content all by itself like below;

How to use ChatGPT with SurferSEO for creating an SEO-optimized blog in 1 Click 47

Note: The accuracy won’t be guaranteed if you are producing content about facts, informational or educational. Therefore, you must evaluate the content before jumping to the next step.

Option 3: Generate H2 using AI + Competition H2/H3

This is the most preferred option, as you can let the AI generate H2 headings and get an idea of what competitors are writing about similar topics.

It will give an edge to your content as you can easily compare & contrast with other articles on a specific topic.

To do that, You need to enter Subheading data from SurferSEO; You need to click on the heading tab on the right as below;

And now click option 3, and Zimmwriter will start generating relevant titles for your content.

Configure Options

After you’ve done with the Subheadings part, now we need to configure options in Zimmwriter’s SEO Blog post.

The first option is to select H2 Section length, I suggest you use “Medium” if the content is long-form and use “Short” if the format of the content is listicles.

Tone of Voice

Next is to choose the tone of the voice, you need to select the tone that best fits your content. Here are three types of voice available below;

How to use ChatGPT with SurferSEO for creating an SEO-optimized blog in 1 Click 51
  • Very Personal
  • Personal
  • Professional

Now how to select this for your content?

If it’s informal content like a travel blog, you should go with the Very Personal Tone. If it is something educational or informational, then a Professional tone will work best.

For other types of content between these two, you can select personal as this balances personal and professional tones.

Literary Devices

The next option is if you want to enable Literary Devices or not.

Literary Devices means usage of metaphors, Similes, etc

This one is the most important option, If you are writing a blog post to educate or inform, then I suggest you leave this checkbox unchecked as it won’t add any value to your content.

But if you are writing something entertaining, you can enable this by selecting the checkbox and your AI-powered content will be enriched with literary devices.

Audience Personality

Audience personality takes 12 Brand Archetypes as personality traits to represent your content. Now you must be wondering what are these 12 Brand Archetypes right?

These 12 Brand Archetypes are divided into four categories as below;

1. Caregiver – Nurturer, Supporter

2. Creator – Innovator, Designer

3. Explorer – Adventurer, Seeker

4. Hero – Achiever, Winner

5. Jester – Entertainer, Comedian

6. Magician – Teacher, Transformer

7. Lover – Companion, Romantic

8. Outlaw – Rebel, Rulebreaker

9. Ruler – Leader, Manager

10. Sage – Scholar, Expert

11. Everyman/Everywoman- Relatable

12. Sovereign – Patriotic, Powerful

So select the Audience Personality as per your need and make sure you choose the one that best suits your content.

For example, if you’re writing content about “Dogs”, then most probably your caregiver or if you are writing something about United State’s LAWS, then you are a Powerful or Patriotic person; therefore, selecting the right audience personality; your content can reach more people as it will be presented in a better way.

By selecting the Brand Archetypes, Zimmwriter AI-powered content will be enriched with related personality traits and tone of voice.

Option to Choose the Best Article

I personally use this because it does give the best outcome.

To enable this, you need to select the following option “Use Best of 2 for H2+FAQ”;
