Generative AI makes review responding easy through templates, suggested responses, and AI-generated content, improving the brand’s reputation through more personalized customer interactions.
- Utilize Structured and Unstructured Data: AI uncovers hyper-local customer information from unstructured data, and surveys (structured data) complete the customer feedback loop, providing specific insights into customer preferences about products, services, and brands.
- Maintain Accurate Listings and Local Pages: Accurate listings and local pages boost visibility in local search. A tool like Chatmeter maintains local business listings at scale, improving local search visibility by distributing accurate information across directories and review platforms.

It streamlines campaigns and operations, tracks metrics across locations, and enables customers to access metrics for store comparisons, high-ranking content, trending hashtags, and follower growth.
- Google’s Evolving Stance on AI-Generated Content: In a significant shift, Google has updated its SEO playbook, dropping the emphasis on “content written by people” and focusing instead on quality content, regardless of its origin. This change, part of Google Search’s “Helpful Content Update,” signifies Google’s acknowledgment of the growing role of AI in content creation. The search giant is now monitoring “content created for people” to rank sites on its search engine, emphasizing valuable content that benefits users, whether produced by humans or machines.
