How to Make AI Content Undetectable

Artificial intelligence is here and doesn’t seem like it’ll be going anywhere any time soon. 

For many people, that’s not a problem at all. For others, the opposite is the case. They often consider artificially generated content repetitive, unengaging, robotic and simply unwanted in their websites and work generally. So, they tend to avoid it entirely.

For what it’s worth, the latter class of individuals cannot exactly be blamed. 

AI, especially when used poorly, produces content that many people perceive to be far lower in quality than what an experienced and talented human can produce. (Note the italicized words. That’s for emphasis.) 

As such, they disregard the information there, even if it’s helpful, or simply do not read the content at all.

If your audience, or even a portion of it, happens to fall into the class of individuals who aren’t too big on AI content, it might be worth making your AI content undetectable. That way, you can provide useful solutions to them via your writing without necessarily setting off any alarms in their anti-AI dispositions. 

In our article, we’ll share a few tactics to help you achieve that while retaining the trust of your readers and even beating AI content detectors, too. 

Understanding the Basics

Before going ahead with the tactics and strategies for avoiding AI content detection, it’s important that we first understand a few ideas. 

What is AI Content Detection?

We can split this into two basic parts – human AI content detection and AI-assisted AI content detection. Yeah, the second one is a bit of a mouthful. 

Where the former is concerned, it’s not much of a practice, so, we’ll describe the process instead. First, a person reads an article or a piece of writing. Then, based on little more than intuition, they decide whether content was generated by artificial intelligence or not. 

Needless to say, this method isn’t reliable. If you’re like Paul Graham (check the comments and quotes) you might find yourself at loggerheads with hundreds, if not thousands of people who disagree with your opinion on what was AI generated or not.

The latter, on the other hand, is the practice of using a tool specifically designed and trained to recognize patterns for the purpose of determining whether AI was utilized in the content creation process or not. 

Unfortunately, this method isn’t exactly reliable either, especially considering how some tools have been reported to give a lot of false positives. However, that’s an entirely different conversation.

There are several AI content detection tools on the market, but one of them has grown in popularity over the years – 

It scans pasted or uploaded text and uses a modified version of Google BERT model alongside a 160gb database of text to determine whether an article was AI-generated or not. 

Then, it provides a probability report, telling the user that their content piece has an x% chance of having been generated by AI or written by a human.

What Triggers AI Content Detection?

Seeing as human decisions are often based on intuition and, sometimes, data, we’ll focus largely on AI detection tools here.

To answer the question, the triggers for AI content detection largely depend on how the tool was programmed to begin with. 

Without going too deep into the technicalities of the matter, some tools are sensitive to writing styles. Words that are typically very formal and uncommon in regular discourse often signal that a piece of content was AI-generated. 

Outside of the ambiguity of words, in practical use, many people have found that tends to flag content that’s void of errors as AI-generated. 

This might indicate that robot-like perfection and precision might also be a trigger for AI detectors.

Many of these tools work by recognizing patterns, using natural language processing. Whatever patterns are associated with AI tend to raise red flags with AI content detectors. 

The only problem is that nobody knows exactly what those patterns look like. AI was, after all, trained on human content. So, whatever AI produces is, in theory, something that a human can or has produced in some form or the other.

Strategies and Tactics to Make AI Content Undetectable

In no particular order, here are a few tips that might be useful when you’re trying to avoid detection in your AI content either by humans or an AI content detector:

1. Choose the Right AI Content Creation Tool

This is our very first piece of advice on the matter because it might be the most important thing in your journey to humanize your content.

Not all AI tools are created the same. ChatGPT, for example, has different versions. There’s GPT3.5, which is designed for speed but is, for lack of a better word, outdated. 

GPT4 is much smarter and much more capable of creating great content. However, it still needs proper prompting to produce extended content without cutting off in the middle or simply being overly repetitive. 

GPT4 Turbo and GPT4o are different versions as well, each with their strengths and weaknesses.

Many AI content writers are built on one or more of these large language models because building one of your own is incredibly capital and effort-intensive. 

You know, the type of stuff you would only do when you’re incredibly liquid or backed by a company that is. 

Some AI content writers build their tool on GPT3.5. It enables them to produce content quickly and at reduced costs because GPT3.5 is simply cheap. There’s no other way to describe it. But, the price of reduced cost is subpar content quality. 

GPT3.5 simply isn’t sophisticated enough to produce the same type of content that more advanced (and more expensive) GPT versions can create. As such, GPT3.5 content is likely to be flagged as AI-generated. 

So, if you must use AI for content creation, select something that’s just as committed to quality as it is capable of generating content. 

KWHero, for instance, is built on GPT4 Turbo and is able to produce consistently great content without compromising on quality. This helps to significantly reduce the chances of being detected as AI-generated content. 

You should definitely give it a shot.

2. Take the Time to Write High-Quality Prompts

Considering how AI models have been marketed, especially at the height of the hype, we can understand why you would expect it to do what you want without needing to give too many details.

Most people would simply type “write an article about the importance of originality in content creation” into ChatGPT and they would expect things to go perfectly. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way as AI tools need a lot of context to provide the details you need.

So, when prompting, you need to specify the tone, the perspective of the writer, the angle through which the content piece should be approached, etc. 

It’s a little bit like trying to generate AI images with prompting. The more details you provide, the more details you’ll find in your image.

Thinking of and writing these prompts can feel a little like a chore, though. This is especially so when you do all you think you need to do but still come out with a result that’s quite there yet.

Thankfully, some tools help mitigate this problem. 

KWHero, for example, gives you the chance to write specific prompts for every section of any article you’re writing. That’s right, every section.

That way, you can maintain continuity in the article, adhere to a certain tone all through, discuss every section from your preferred angle, etc. What’s more, you can specifically tell the tool not to repeat certain points as repetition is something AI tends to do when it’s “forced” to meet a certain word count. 

Outside of these, you can also include a prompt in the additional guidelines of KWHero just before writing an article.

What you’ll get is a piece that’s as close to your original vision as possible, not low hanging fruit for AI content detectors.

3. Avoid Being Repetitive When You Write

Artificial intelligence, especially ChatGPT, has a habit of repeating certain words and phrases. It’s become so common that people hardly need to think twice before realizing that something was written by ChatGPT. 

See this Reddit thread for example.

The model could be doing this for any number of reasons. One could be the same reason humans repeat words and use redundant phrases – it needs to hit a word count requirement. 

To put that into perspective, more often than not, when you ask ChatGPT to create content, even if you specify the word count, it’ll usually write no more than a thousand words or so. 

If you find a way to bypass its desire for brevity, it might be forced to repeat words and this pattern will likely be sniffed by AI content detectors. 

So, try not to be repetitive when you write. If you’re having a hard time figuring out whether or not your content says the same thing or word multiple times, have someone read your piece and give feedback. 

Better yet, have someone read it out to you. You’ll instantly pick up the instances of repetition that could be edited. 

4. Use Human Anecdotes and Experiences in Your Writing

One key difference between humans and AI is that the latter is artificial. It’s, quite literally, in the name. It has no family, friends, lived experiences or anything along those lines. 

Maybe a thousand years into the future, our robot overlords will have evolved to have families and keep us around as pets. But, for now, it has nothing but algorithms and codes that it uses to follow your instructions. 

So, when you tell it to write about the best grills under $700, it will not tell you about that one time it accidentally put too much salt on what would’ve otherwise been a juicy steak at a neighborhood BBQ party. 

It won’t tell you how its six-year-old had made her mom jealous by preferring its steak to her mom’s oven-grilled turkey. Why? It simply hasn’t lived those experiences.

The presence of those is more likely to help you keep your content undetectable. 

You can go about including them in your content in three different ways:

  • Edit the content after generating it with AI to include your experiences.
  • Write the content from scratch and include your perspective and experience.
  • Prompt the AI to include the experiences before generating the content. KWHero’s section-by-section prompting feature provides an excellent opportunity to do this. 

5. Take the Time to Edit Your Content Thoroughly

This might sound cliche but artificial intelligence is not meant to replace humans entirely. Instead, its purpose is to complement the efforts of its users. 

The mistake people make, however, is that they see artificial intelligence as a replacement for the time and effort they’re meant to naturally put into creating good content.

An alternate way to see artificial intelligence is as an assistant that helps you research and create a first draft to work with. That way, you’re not stuck staring at a blank screen for hours, trying to figure out where to even begin.

So, whenever you use AI to write content, it might be a good idea to read through it thoroughly and make adjustments. Unless you’re using a really outdated version of artificial intelligence, you shouldn’t run into problems with grammatical accuracy. 

But, you want to edit the content to include more active voice usage, to sound more like how you speak naturally and to vary sentence lengths and structure. 

By doing so, you would quite literally be making the content more human and less likely to be detected by AI content detectors.

6. Write Your Content Yourself

It might seem a little obvious but one of the easiest ways to avoid AI detection is to write your content yourself. Of course, this entirely depends on what type of AI detector you use., for instance, tends to generate an uncomfortable number of false positives.

But generally, your audience shouldn’t have any trouble believing your content is human-written if it was actually human written. You can still use tools like KWHero to improve the rank-worthiness of the article by including the recommended NLP terms like so:

7. Try a Paraphrasing Tool 

We’ll advise doing this only when it’s necessary. Typically, that’s after you’ve been flagged for AI use by a detector. 

Examples of paraphrasing tools you can consider include Quillbot and Grammarly, among others. These two help to rewrite your content to varying degrees and they should create sufficient variation in your sentences and paragraphs to beat AI content detectors.

Should You Be Trying to Avoid AI Detection in the First Place?

Technically speaking, you really don’t need to work so hard to avoid AI content detection. Yes, people seem to think that its quality is lower than what a human will produce and, in some cases, that is true. 

But, for the most part, Google doesn’t quite care about whether content is AI generated or not. 

Heck, Google itself is actively working to improve its own AI tool.

What Google is particularly concerned about is the quality of content, not necessarily its means of creation. Specifically, Google wants to know that articles are helpful and follow the principles of E-E-A-T. 

As long as you toe that path, you should be good. But, we do understand that sometimes, you really do have to pass AI content detection with your audience and with tools. 

So, feel free to try out any or more of the tactics we recommended earlier.


AI content detectors can be bypassed, depending on what your final draft looks like. You just need to make sure that you’re deploying the right tips and tricks.

That said, while you should try to keep your content as human as possible, you shouldn’t obsess excessively over the results of AI content detectors. 

For starters, they tend to give a lot of false positives. Plus, Google is far more concerned about content quality than the source of the content itself.
