Quick ChatGPT SEO Playbook Guide

When looking to be relevant in your particular niche, it takes more than a couple blog articles to rise to the top. Here are some quick ChatGPT prompts you can use to improve your rank.

help me come up with a topical map for my blog that has the best chance of helping me rank for long tail keywords that are specific to my keyword "YOURKEYWORD" and give each a clickbait style title. Provide a list of 50 titles, and prioritize transactional intent topics. next to each title, add the best longtail keyword phrase that title should be targeting. Do not duplicate keyword phrases.

Next you will want to write an article about that keyword:

Now create an outline for an article titled "YOURTITLE". Write it as an experienced cosmetic surgeon specializing in men's procedures, and write it for men over the age of 50. 

The above example was used for cosmetic surgeons. You want to make sure ChatGPT is writing from the perspective of the expert you are writing about. Once you have the outline you want, then have ChatGPT write an article about the topic.

Now write the article in a casual, helpful tone, (or in Alex Hormozi/Oprah style) and insert personal anecdotes if they help illustrate a point. Include H2s and H3s as needed, and expand on key points or add more if needed to hit at least 1000 words. 

Now you will want to focus on the title for maximum clicks.

create 10 click-bait style titles for the article. All titles generated must be optimized for keyword phrase "YOURKEYWORDPHRASE"

Once you have your new title and have personalized the content a bit with your own personal insights (DON’T JUST USE CHATGPT’s OUTPUT) you should paste the whole article back into ChatGPT for one last pass in order to optimize for your keyword.

is the following article optimized for the keyword phrase "YOURKEYWORD"? If so, just tell me it's ok. If not, make it optimized with minimal rewriting. Put your changes in bold. Here is the article: 

You should be all set now! 🙂 If you have any sales pages, you may want to spruce them up a bit and here is how…

Is this page optimized for the search term "YOURSEARCHTERM"? Does it include enough semantically related terms to be thorough? If so, just tell me it's good. If not, add what needs to be added to be fully optimized, but make sure it reads naturally and makes perfect sense. Use bold text on all new content and keywords you add. Here's the content:  

then to sweeten the page a bit more…

lets add an extra keyword-rich section at the bottom. Make it benefit-driven, and read naturally. 

Once the new text is returned. Make sure to do 1 last check:

is the new page with the changes and the extra section now fully optimized for the term "YOURTERMHERE"?

The PC must support TPM 2.0

I was able to disable the TPM check for a Windows 11 installation in VMware Fusion, but when trying to install some newer Windows Insider updates, I got an error when trying to install updates.

The error was:
The PC doesn’t currently meet Windows 11 system requirements.

The PC must support TPM 2.0

The fix was surprisingly easy. I just had to encrypt the VM in VMware Fusion, then add a new device: Trusted Platform Module.

Powered back on and the update was able to proceed.

This PC can’t run Windows 11 on ESXi 7

When trying to install the latest version of Windows 11 on my lab ESXi 7.0 host, I encountered the following message:

This PC can’t run Windows 11

I verified that I had met the minimum system/hardware requirements:
Windows 11 System Requirements
Proc: 1 Ghz
Storage: 64GB
System firmware: UEFI, Secure boot capable
TPM: version 2.0
Graphics card: directx compatible

What I soon realized was that my ESXi host did not have TPM 2.0…

Time to work around the issue…

When you get the error picture above simply press Shift + F10 and this will bring up a dos prompt. Type regedit and hit enter.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup and create a new Key called: LabConfig

Create inside the LabConfig Key a ByPassTPMCheck DWORD (32-bit) with the value of 1

Click OK after editing the value data and then close out of all of the screens. Once you click on the red x in the corner of the setup screen, the setup will start again and ignore the TPM requirements.

vCenter failed to configure network

Well I thought this was fixed in the latest version (7.0U1c) according to the release notes but apparently it wasn’t. If you are like me you are simply trying to deploy the vCenter appliance with standard IPv4 network settings and the setting will not take.

I’ve had various error messages like: ‘IP configuration not allowed‘ and ‘IP configuration failed‘ as well as: “This vCenter Server cannot be used or repaired because a failure was encountered. You need to deploy a new vCenter Server. Failure details”

This should be a relatively easy deployment but this bug definitely throws a wrench into the mix.

Luckily I’ve put some time into troubleshooting this so you don’t have to.

The best way I’ve found to work around this, is to simply just redeploy the appliance and to not fill out any of the networking configuration settings. (Make sure to set a password)

This will allow the appliance to inherit a DHCP address and allow you to complete the setup once deployed. You can also try to manually adjust the DHCP setting on the appliance.

You will first need to get to the shell. In the browser console of the vCenter VCSA press Alt + F1

Then login with root credentials and type: shell

then run /opt/vmware/share/vami/vami_config_net

this will allow you to temporarily set DHCP for your appliance to gain access to the setup.

You can reboot the appliance and you should now have an IPv4 address to continue the setup with. Let me know if this helps you or if you found an easier way to fix in the comments below.

Shortcut to change Alienware Monitor Input

Whether I’m gaming or sending out business emails, my alienware monitor has always been right in front of me. It has great performance for gaming and amazing color range for editing videos or photos. Long story short, there are many things I love about the monitor… but switching inputs is definitely one of the things that can be improved. Let’s explore two ways to make changing the inputs quicker and easier.

Solution 1:

Depending on your model (mine is the aw2518h) you may have the option to set “Shorcut Keys” under the Personalize option using you monitor buttons.

Alienware 25 Monitor

This will be the easiest way to quickly switch from either input directly from the monitor.

Solution 2:

This solution requires some additional software to be installed but will make for an easy switch using a simple command.

Let’s first start with downloading the Dell Display Manager Application:

Make sure your display is supported, there is a list of compatible systems at the bottom of that link.

Please change appliance (OS) root password before attempting an update

I’ve been working today to get my home lab updated and came across a vcenter update message while running the Pre-Update.

It appears that I need to change the root password for the OS as it expired.

A quick google search and I found a VMware KB article on how to update the password.

  1. Connect to the vCenter Server Appliance with an SSH session and the root user credentials.
  2. Use the following commands to get to the command prompt:
shell shell.set --enable true

3.Change the root password using passwd command.
4.Verify the root account password has been changed using:chage -l root       
5.Re-attempt the upgrade again.

Thats it! Run the pre-check again and update!

AWS Outposts vs Google Anthos vs Azure Stack

While there is no one strategy to rule them all, hybrid cloud seems to be the enterprise strategy of choice. This strategy involves operating different workloads across different infrastructure environments including private cloud, public cloud, and at the edge.

While public cloud has been in the spot light in recent years we have seen a renewed focus on private cloud with the ability to burst or move data and workloads anywhere. In comes Azure Stack, Google Anthos, and AWS Outposts.

Been working hard on my branding and figured I should put up some wallpapers. So I had some fun with photoshop this morning and made a couple. I tried to get logo front and center with some style. Will use these for instructional videos in the background on my desktop. Enjoy !
