SEO compared to ChatGPT. Is SEO still important now?

In this new CHATGPT era now, I have been asked by most of my clients if SEO still important and need to focus due to CHATGPT is very famous now! What do you think? Let’s do a comparison here.

SEO also known as Search Engine Optimization and ChatGPT is a language model and both of them in fact are two different things that serve for different purposes. SEO is more referred to a digital marketing strategy that helps businesses optimize their website’s content and structure to improve their keywords visibility in search engine results pages (SERP) like Google, Yahoo, or Bing whereas ChatGPT is an AI language model designed to generate instant human-like responses to natural language queries.

Here are more differences between SEO and ChatGPT in term of purpose, scope, timing and audience:

  1. Purpose: SEO is designed to improve a website’s search engine rankings and visibility, while ChatGPT is designed to generate responses to natural language queries.
  2. Scope: SEO focuses on optimizing website content, keywords, meta tags, and other factors to improve a website’s ranking in search engine results pages. In contrast, ChatGPT is designed to generate responses to natural language queries, and its scope extends beyond website optimization.
  3. Timing: SEO can take time to see results, usually it will take a few months, as it requires ongoing optimization efforts and patience for search engine algorithms to crawl and index a website’s pages. ChatGPT generates responses in real-time, with no delay.
  4. Audience: SEO targets users searching for specific keywords or phrases related to a business’s products or services. ChatGPT’s audience is anyone who interacts with it, regardless of their search intent.

Overall, SEO and ChatGPT serve different purposes and are not comparable to each other. However, businesses can use SEO to improve their website’s visibility and ChatGPT to enhance their customer engagement through natural language interactions. Let us know what you think?

Wait a second? Anyone wonder how CHATGPT can generate responses in real-time? Where did they get the data from? Maybe, SEO still serves its purpose 🙂
