There’s a fervor in the AI writing assistant market. According to Growth Market Reports, the market for AI-powered copywriting tools is exploding by 15% year over year.
One of the most popular use cases for these AI writing tools is Search Engine Optimization. More specifically, it seems like marketers who leverage websites’ blogs have picked up on the fact that their output and effectiveness can be significantly increased with the help of current natural language processing.
While there are some key winners in the space of AI writing assistance at the moment, today we are going to be looking at a new entrance to the market that claims to have some very unique features.
Juice.ai is an AI writing assistant built specifically for bloggers looking to increase organic traffic on Google. Not only can it produce an output of 1500-word articles with a single click, but it also claims to pack some very powerful SEO-focused tools that other writing assistants don’t have. This includes an advanced long-tail keyword research tool.
At present, juice has two main features:
- A Long-Form Article Generator
- A Low-Competition Keyword Research Tool
Let’s dive into both of these components individually and see how they stack up!
The main feature of Juice looks very similar to some of its competitors. You simply feed in the title of an article you would like to create, click the generate button, and wait 30–60 seconds while Juice generates a first draft complete with images, YouTube videos, HTML tags, and more.
The constant quality itself is mostly very good. I found that sometimes, it wasn’t factually accurate, but that seems to be a limitation that all AI writing tools currently have.
Juice gave me usable articles 60–70% of the time. While I would like to see 100% usability from the outputs that they gave me, it’s hard to be mad because their per-word pricing is incredibly low.
I don’t know if there are any AI tools out there that allow you to generate so much content for relatively little money. After generating a usable article, it’s pretty easy to improve and enhance it via the Juice editor. At first, I was a little unsure about editing directly with Juice itself. I never really got into the habit of editing things – much directly in the AI tools. When using Jasper.ai, for example, I pretty much always got my first draft out of the app as soon as possible.
Juice makes it feel like you’re supposed to edit the article within the Juice app itself. Even better, they give you some pretty useful features to quickly change or add to sections of your article.
To be clear, I don’t think Juice has the absolute most advanced AI when it comes to the actual text it outputs, or at least not yet. But given its pricing and the ease with which you can create new articles and enhance existing ones, I didn’t find that I was limited because of the AI itself.
Once I got the hang of it, I was pumping out 40–50 finished articles per week. That’s at least twice as many as I was able to output when using Jasper, and frankly, the quality of my finished juice articles was just as good if not better than those that I made with Jasper.
Keyword Research Tool
Okay – this is where Juice started to amaze me in ways that the current offerings as far as AI writers haven’t. Juice has a feature they dub “the keyboard explorer” which they tout as a very basic, but extremely powerful, long tail keyword research tool.
It reminded me of Ubersuggest by Neil Patel or Long Tail Pro (one of the original keyword research tools). Juice.ai co-founder Derek Sturman, who ran a profitable SEO and public relations agency before creating Juice, claims to have developed one of the most sophisticated, or as he calls it “the most sophisticated,” formulas for determining the competitiveness of any given long tail keyword phrase.
Juice combines classic web data scraping with advanced artificial intelligence inference to quickly find and generate popular Google queries. It then computes several data points for each keyword phrase to come up with a straightforward rating, from 0 to 100. This is to illustrate how valuable a keyword will be to the publisher who builds content around it.
I’ve always been skeptical of keyword research tools. For Ubersuggest, for example, I’ve found it to very rarely give me a good idea of how competitive a given keyword phrase is. I’m not sure if the data just doesn’t get refreshed enough.
However, when I saw that it was reading keywords with a CPC of thousands of dollars with a low competitiveness rating, I started to question how accurate the long tail keyword guides are.
I was similarly skeptical of Juice’s version of this concept – that is until I had a chance to try it. As part of a marketing push, the Juice team gave me access to some keyword phrases discovered and vetted by their keyword explorer.
They challenged me to use the keywords and see how fast the pages targeting them started ranking. They told me that if they didn’t rank noticeably faster than other pages I had been publishing, I’d get access to their biggest plan, absolutely free, for 1 year.
As part of the deal, I could use Juice to create content built around those keyword phrases or use any AI writing tool of my choice. They also suggested I could try doing one or two without any AI assistant, but who has time for that?
The goal was simple: they wanted me to publish articles targeting those keyword phrases and witness for myself just how quickly those pages ranked.
I was not disappointed – 7 of the 10 articles I created started ranking on page one within 3 days of my publishing them. It was a good mix of articles generated with Juice (and with articles created with Scalenut).
The craziest part was just how easy it was to use the keyboard explorer. I just had to type in a short tail phrase related to my niche, and I was presented with thousands of options to pick from.
I’m not exactly sure how this feature works or what it’s doing, but I was blown away by how simple it made keyword research. Sure, sometimes I wanted to check out specific statistics related to some of the keyword phrases I was using via SEMrush.
However, after doing this for one or two of the keyboard phrases, I got impatient and didn’t even bother. I’m very impressed with this feature, and frankly think it’s the best thing about Juice right now.
It’s honestly pretty dizzying how many AI writing apps are out there. I use and even subscribe to a number of them. But with juice, I got a refreshing moment of clarity. Sometimes I feel like SEO tools try too hard to give you all the available data. There are an infinite number of stats, data points, dos, and don’ts, etc. when it comes to SEO.
What I like most about Juice is that it does one thing, and it helps you do it as quickly and efficiently as possible whereas other AI writing tools focus on all sorts of use cases like email writing, product descriptions, or social media posts.
Juice is born and bred to allow you to pump out meaningful targeted blog content at scale. There are already a bunch of crazy success stories from some of its users.
As an SEO professional, that’s all I care about, and Juice.ai delivers, especially for the price. I encourage you to try it out. I bet its simplicity will make it one of your go-to tools for basic content strategy.
