Agility Writer

Last Update 23 days ago

Advanced mode lets you control the outline based on the top-ranking search results and generate longer, high-quality factual articles that are ready to rank #1 on Google.

Step 1. Setting up your article

  • If you already have an article title, you may use it here. 
  • If you do not have a specific title, use the Get an Article Title feature with your target keyword and region. It will analyze data to give you the best article title match. 

Step 2. Core settings

With your title and target audience set, it’s time to prepare your long-form, search-engine-friendly content. Here are the key features you should not miss:

Output Language

Advanced mode offers more than 15 output language options including Non-English such as Malay, Japanese, and Chinese. 

Main Headings

You can set this up manually and choose up to 10 main headings (H2 headings). With Auto mode, the system can generate the most optimized number of headings (H2 & H3 headings) for your topic based on other similar articles online.  You can also customize your generated outline after this result. 

Article Structure

For more diverse-looking content with a mix of text, quote, bullets, and tables.
  • Advanced (Standard) - The system will decide the article's length and format (text, long text, quote, bullet list, and maximum of 3 tables)
  • Advanced (Detailed): Recommended for articles heavy on statistics and data. Otherwise, an Advanced (Standard) setting will do.
  • Standard Text: All-text output, recommended for simple, personal blog posts.
  • Long-text: For that highly informative, authoritative article.

AI Model

You may choose the Full GPT-4 Turbo for the highest quality results, but this will require extra 1-2 credits depending on the number of headings you choose.

If you select a foreign language, it is recommended to also choose the Full GPT-4 Turno model.

    • Standard (GPT 3.5/4) - Writes a standard GPT 3.5 model + GPT 4 (handling complex tasks and important headings) 
    • Full GPT-4 Turbo - Handle complex tasks and all headings using full GPT-4 model.
    • Claude 3 Sonnet (Beta) - Similar performance with GPT-4 model, generate the final output using Claude API. 
    • Claude 3 Opus - the most powerful model from Claude.

    Factual Data

    This gives you the option to select your credible data sources or simply let the AI search from the top sources.

    • Standard Factual Data – Crawl live factual data for every paragraph, ideal for articles that do not require a lot of numeric data.
    • In-depth Factual Data – Crawl live factual data for each paragraph for non-product related content.
    • Custom Factual Data – Enter up to 3 URLs and let the system crawl live data. You can also leave the Factual Data Source field empty and allow the system to pick from the top search results. The best option for data-driven articles.

    Writing Style

    This recently added feature allows you to personalize the article style further based on your niche. Among the choices are Conversational, journalistic, academic/technical, personal, and authoritative.

    Specify the group of people you want to talk to with your article. Examples: Homeowners, students, business owners, etc.

    Tone of Voice

    Let the system know the writing style or tone here. Example: professional, informal, educational, etc.

    Point of View

    Set the author’s point of view here.

    Introduction Style

    Choose from four introduction styles:

    • Concise - write a short and concise introduction
    • Engaging - write an interesting and more extended intro
    • Authoritative (Authorship) - Engaging intro with author's expertise to build credibility. Make sure to include Author's background in the project settings
    • Comprehensive Insight - Provides an in-depth understanding of the topic incorporating various perspectives.

    Conclusion Style

    Choose between a Concise, Engaging, or Expert Opinion conclusion for your article:

    • Concise - write a short and concise conclusion
    • Engaging - write an interesting and more extended conclusion
    • Expert Opinion - conclude your article with a unique perspective from a fictional expert.

    Step 3: Create Article Outline

    Before generating the article outline, please ensure to input any relevant keywords if applicable. These keywords will serve as essential elements to craft the outline, drawing from SERP headings.

    Click the "Create Outline" button to initiate the generation of three different article outlines. This process might take 2-3 minutes, as the system needs time to analyze the top search results to produce the final outline.

    If you prefer a more tailored approach to generating your outline, you can utilize the "Custom Instruction & Knowledge" option for additional customization. Learn more about how to use this feature here.

    After the outlines are generated, select the one that best fits your needs. You can also take better control of your output with the POWER-UP GUIDE, which includes specific templates and instructions for every heading generated in your headings. Discover more about these features here.

    Step 4: Advanced Settings

    This is for your additional customization needs, although majority of the setting options can be already addressed in your core settings. Below are some of the options that you may find helpful:

    1. Key Takeaways

    Tick this option if you want to include quick summaries of your article.

    2. FAQs, Meta Description, and Title

    5. Add Styling

    This will add bold style on important terms across the articles.

    6. Improve Readability

    You can do this early on in your core settings by choosing In-Depth Factual Data or Custom Factual Data. This may also reduce word count of your article output.

    7. Authority Links

    Auto-add up to 5 outbound authority links to high-domain authority links as part of the SEO optimization.

    8. Internal Links

    Enter your internal URL or any other custom link you want to be included in the article.

    9. Entity Enrichment

    10. Change H3 to Bold

    This is an easy way to create a neat article that does not have too many heading tags but still retains the outline you prepared.

    11. Disabling Transition

    If you tick this, our system will not generate transition sentences in between headings.

    12. Exclude Quotes

    Avoid including quotes in the article. By default, the system will automatically insert quotes with the Advanced article structure.

      13. Negative Terms 

      Instruct AI to avoid specific negative terms, separating each word by commas. 

      14. First-Hand Experience

      Incorporate personal insights and experience at various points in the article to enhance its Experience, Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness (E-E-A-T). First-person point of view and Full GPT-4 will generate the best results.

      Step 5: Image Settings

      Generated images will be hugely based on the content of your H2 and H3. You can check this link for more information on generating AI images.

      Step 6: Publishing Settings

      Select a site where you want to auto-publish your article to once it is completed. You may check the WordPress publishing Guide for more information. 

      Step 7: Add to Writing Queue

      Click the "Add to Writing Queue" button to begin generating your article. The process may take between 10 to 20 minutes, depending on your specifications.

      Best Practices

      • Opt for a more advanced AI model (such as Full GPT-4 Turbo, Claude Sonnet, or Opus) when writing in foreign languages or utilizing complex custom instructions.

      • Activate Entity Enrichment to enhance the density of entities in your content.

      • Enable FAQs to optimize the use of input keywords.

      • Use custom factual data or in-depth factual data to achieve higher quality content.

      You have reached the end of the Advanced Mode! All that’s left to do now is to sit and wait for your article to be generated.
