Suppose you have a WordPress website which already has a regular audience. People who are familiar with your work would like to know if you wrote about some topic “X”. Would you like to guide them towards your best content on that topic?

Today they simply use the search box on your website. However, default WordPress search has a few limitations.

1. It depends on the user typing the exact keyword to trigger a match – slight variations of the keyword will not even work.

2. Unless you make the effort to install a plugin, the default search results in WordPress are sorted simply by date – which means the top results may not be the best ones.

3. For any user question, you the content creator are the best judge of what is your most relevant/useful content, and your default search results are not helping your users get the best material.

By creating a chat bot which can curate the best articles on your website and display them for spoken English-like queries, you get some control over how your audience experiences your best work.


The API.AI service for creating the chat bot is completely free.


This is a very short book which will take you less than an hour to read and you should have a working bot inside your website within a couple of hours.
