Artificial Intelligence-Powered WordPress Plugins: Yes, They Exist!

Artificial Intelligence has been growing in use and application over the past five to ten years. It’s super convenient to see machines and code learning and evolving, and human life has just been made easier with Artificial Intelligence. 

There’s Google Nest, Amazon’s Echo and Alexa, and there’s Apple’s HomeKit. These simply make the lives of end-users easier. With just a command, thermostats and lights can be set. Music can be played or turned off. Weather information can be reported. Tasks and schedules can be set. Texts can be sent. All with voice commands. Pretty convenient, right? 

And then there’s Artificial Intelligence right in your phones and browsers. From TikTok to shopping apps, to Google, and then there’s Meta/Facebook/Instagram which takes our information and spins them back into retargeted ads, this is the side of Artificial Intelligence that’s a tad creepy, annoying, and even invasive. 

But just as there are good and bad sides to everything, including technology, the trick is always to focus on what’s good and what’s useful.

More and more companies are joining the rush to get into Artificial Intelligence, and the WordPress Development Community is no stranger to that terrain. Enter the AI-powered Plugins. 

Why would you need an AI-powered WordPress Plugin, you ask? Well, aside from you may already be using it on your WordPress-powered websites, some functions and processes in running a website need constant updating. 

For example, spam is an ever-growing, ever-evolving annoyance for website owners and admins. If spam-stopping technology got stuck years back, it wouldn’t be able to keep up with the new ways that spammers now inundate comment sections and even website forms. 

Another major reason and example would be website Search Engine Optimization. Search Engine Optimization, SEO, is based on keywords. And these have to be up-to-date for the website to be able to keep abreast of the changes in Search Engine Optimization standards.

Another great way that Artificial Intelligence can be used in WordPress Plugins is in content analysis and curation. There are AI-powered plugins that map which of your articles get the most traffic so you can optimise which articles to promote or feature. There are also AI-powered plugins that help you link your relevant content to each other, making sure that related content also gets pushed to your readers. 

There’s even an AI-powered plugin that allows you to analyse the emotional impact of your content, giving you the power to adjust your content for maximum emotional impact on your readers. The relevance of this is that the higher the emotional impact of a piece on your website, the better engagement it will draw. 

So, what does CLDY recommend that you install, to give you better results for your website? 

Here’s our recommended list: 

Akismet. Keep the spam away with AI-powered anti-spam analysis and automatic spam comment removal. Akismet is the industry-standard spam deterrent, and machine learning is used to keep it up-to-date. 

WordLift. Aside from giving you SEO analysis and recommendations, WordLift also creates a representation of your content that is optimised to be readable to Search Engines. This, essentially, super-powers your SEO strategy for your WordPress Website with AI. 

Image SEO Optimizer. If your website already has an extensive library of images and it would be tedious for you to go in one by one and add ALT texts to each image, this can help. 

WatsonFinds. This is the AI-powered plugin we mentioned that analyzes your content for its emotional impact. It gives your content a score on how the emotional impact it creates on your readers. You will have to manually adjust your content until the score improves and reaches the emotion you’re aiming for, but it’s pretty helpful in giving you direction on how to adjust your content in a way that creates maximum emotional triggers in your readers. 

Alter. Sure you’ve been using Related Posts plugins. But how about using an AI-powered solution that knows your readers’ preferences and pushes the content they will respond to best? In Psychology, behaviour that is reinforced becomes a habit, and people are always creatures of habit. Why not create a feedback loop on your content based on your audience’s behaviour and make sure that they see only the content that’s best tailored for them?

As mentioned, one of the best ways that AI has been used as WordPress plugins is through Related Posts and Content Creation plugins. Related Posts plugins allow similar content to be pushed to your readers, and most of them provide internal linking capabilities. 

MyCurator Content Curation. A super-powered content curation plugin that not only provides feeds to related content, it also allows you to create new content easier and faster. It allows you to train the plugin and gather the content you want to work on, provide the snippet and the image for you, and with just a bit of tweaking and personalization, you have a post you created on the fly! 

Related Posts for WordPress by Bibblio. Learns from user behaviour on your WordPress website to push relevant content that’s tailored to your user. With the Related Posts customised according to existing user behaviour, you’ll be recommending posts they wish to read. 

Recommendo. Uses the same principle as Related Posts for WordPress by Bibblio but it has the added functionality of giving better recommendations the more your readers interact with your content. This function reinforces their behaviour by fine-tuning the content pushed to them.

Aside from these plugins, there are yet other plugins that are AI-powered. The ones we list next may have better alternatives, but since they’re AI-powered, machine learning might give that plugin an edge.

After The Deadline is an AI-powered grammar, spelling, and style checker, which includes: 

  • Contextual Spelling Checking
  • Advanced Style Checking
  • Misused Words Detection
  • Grammar Checking
  • Error Explanation

While Grammarly has punctuation checks and will check for missing articles and even genre-specific writing style checks After The Deadline is a fully-free, Open Source solution that’s worth checking out. It may help you write better blogs and better content for your website, but if you find that Grammarly Premium is a better option for your WordPress Website, stick to what’s comfortable for you.

Quttera Web Malware Scanner. A full malware scanner and remover software. It also detects hacking incidents, code injections, Trojans, Backdoors, Worms, Spyware, and the like. They also have active Blacklist Monitoring to actively check if your website is on search engines’ blacklists because of malware or hacking incidents. It’s a full-suite solution that you might want to try. 

WordPress is always better with plugins. Knowing the right ones to use is key. Artificial Intelligence is no longer a fascinating new frontier, but it is now a reality in our daily lives. Leverage the power of plugins engineered with Artificial Intelligence, and you might see how it optimizes and fine-tunes the way your WordPress Website operates.
