In an age of rapidly changing and growing internet technology, it’s amazing that no one has yet invented an artificially intelligent website. If you were to try to do a search for it online, you would get few if any results. Surely, though, developers are working on it. When the website that can “think” for you arrives, the internet will be a different place than it is today.

Your ideal website would not just sit there passively online while you did all the work of optimizing it for traffic, would it? Imagine having a website that didn’t just sit there waiting for traffic, but got out there and actively looked for traffic, even while you were sleeping and your PC was turned off. How would that work?

If search engines can do it, why can’t your website. In your case, it would be scouring the web, finding, analyzing and assessing websites, blogs, video sharing sites, article directories and forums on your behalf. It would be matching their content with yours, finding their position on Google and analyzing the results. Then, when you opened your browser in the morning and entered your password, you would know exactly what you had to do that day.

For your part, you might only have to tell the website to change the contents of your website and use different keywords or emphasize a certain product. If you didn’t want to take a hands-on approach, you could simply automate the website and let it decide for you. In theory, there’s much more it could do for you, too.

What if your website had enough intelligence to identify blog posts and forum posts that were related to the content of your website? What if it had a built-in ability to read captchas and install your pre-composed blog post and forum comments. If you gave it the right keyword combinations to look for, you would even be able to be sure of sending comments that were relevant to the posts.

For instance, you might have the words “targeted article marketing” as your keyword search term. A blog search for those keywords would probably come up with hundreds of recent entries. Your smart website would find entries with that keyword and then post a comment that said, “I really liked what you said about article marketing. Check out my blog. I’ve got a few ideas of my own.”

Conceivably, you could push the content creation and distribution limit even further. There are already programs that can search for articles for you, just as the big search engines do. Why couldn’t your website do that automatically and then even use a built-in article spinner to create original content for you? Article spinning software is already getting better all the time. One of these days it will be possible to have a program that can write perfect articles and submit them without you having to lift a finger.

It is almost a certainty that the day will come when the artificially intelligent website will be a reality. Whoever invents it first will reap the greatest rewards, because when they become commonplace, nobody will have an edge anymore. The internet will be a very different place when that happens. Let’s hope it’s a change for the better for everyone.
