Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past six months, you can’t fail to have seen -or at least heard about the plethora of new AI tools exploding onto the market and quickly revolutionizing the way many of us live, work, and run our businesses. 

From the ground-breaking ChatGPT and competitors such as Bard and Bing AI to a host of image generators and optimization tools, it’s fast becoming the case that no matter what you need to do, there’s a way to do it faster, better, or both, with artificial intelligence. 

That includes building high-quality websites. 

Below, we look at ten top AI tools that you can use to streamline how you build WordPress sites and optimize them for success

9 AI Tools for Building High-Quality WordPress Sites 

1. Elementor AI 

Although Elementor isn’t specifically an AI tool, over 13 million WordPress users create their websites with this industry-leading page builder, so we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention its new AI capabilities

Although said capabilities are still in their infancy, they’re nonetheless impressive. 

For example, the new smart content generation features do a great job of making content creation tasks more efficient. 

Simply enter a prompt such as “create a catchy headline for an article about WordPress AI plugins” or “draft a product description for a blue Chiffon Dress,” your content is automatically generated. 

Although the initial results are impressive in their own right, you can also use the on-screen controls to tweak it, such as by changing the length or adopting a different tone. 

Elsewhere, the plugin also lets you harness the power of artificial intelligence to generate custom CSS and HTML code. To read more about these, see our guide to using AI with Elementor

An AI image generator is apparently in the works, too, though for now, Elementor’s text generation features will no doubt make life easier for its millions of users. 

2. Uncanny Automator

Few plugins provide as many time-saving solutions for WordPress users as Uncanny Automation.

The plugin’s primary purpose is to automate your workflows, putting regularly-occurring tasks such as sharing new posts on social media on autopilot. 

However, where Uncanny Automation comes into its own is it integrates with ChatGPT via OpenAI’s API. 

Once the two tools are connected, you can use them in almost infinite ways. 

For example, you could: 

  • Post automated, AI-generated replies to blog comments and forum posts. 
  • Improve customer service by adding a ChatGPT-powered WhatsApp chatbot that answers visitors’ questions and directs them to the most helpful content relevant to their inquiry. 
  • Populate your blog with User Generated Content (UGC) by creating a new post whenever a visitor submits a form. 

The best part is that all this requires zero coding knowledge. The visual interface makes setting up your AI automation as quick and easy as possible. In contrast, the ability to create as many automated workflows as you like makes Uncanny Automator a must for time-starved site owners. 

3. CodeWP

A pioneering platform in automated web development, CodeWP is an AI code generator designed exclusively for WordPress that is as useful for experienced developers as it is for rookies. 

Suppose you’re a WordPress professional creating unique solutions for your clients. In that case, the ability to type in a prompt and generate code in seconds is guaranteed to save you time, making you more efficient and turbocharging your productivity. 

Suppose you’re new to WordPress and prefer to make your sites easier by using drag-and-drop page builders like Elementor above or Visual Composer. In that case, you’ll still benefit from CodeWP, which can generate custom CSS,  HTML, and javascript to improve your site’s functionality. 

What excites us about CodeWP is that it can be used to generate code for custom WordPress plugins.

In the screenshot above, you can see the response to the following prompt: 

“Create a WordPress plugin that adds a custom meta box to the post editor screen, allowing users to enter additional information.”

The entire thing was produced in mere seconds with zero syntax errors, making this a must-have for anyone looking to expand the functionality of their website beyond WordPress’ core capabilities. 

4. WordLift 

WordLift is an excellent AI-powered optimization tool that scans your content and applies relevant schema markup in all the appropriate places. 

As an experienced search engine optimization professional will tell you, Schema is an essential tool for helping Google learn more about your content, a process that can result in increased visibility in search results via featured snippets. 

WordLift does all this for you, offers an in-depth SEO analysis, and makes smart recommendations on improving your content further, such as through optimized images and internal linking. 

5. AI Power 

AI Power is an all-in-one toolkit for WordPress powered by OpenAI. 

Like many plugins of this type, most of its features focus on smart content generation, with beginner-friendly tools for creating blog posts, images, and custom forms. 

However, AI Power excels because it helps you improve the quality of your website’s user experience by incorporating a ChatGPT-driven chatbot into your site. 

Although you can customize your chatbot in an infinite number of ways according to the needs of your user base, the easy-to-use chatbot builder comes with pre-made templates for common use cases such as customer service and technical support. 

When you’re done, you can build your new customer support tool into your website using either a short code for in-page embeds or a widget that fixes the chatbot permanently to a header, footer, or sidebar. 

6. Adobe Sensei 

There’s much more to creating high-quality WordPress sites than simply attractive visual appeal. 

Ultimately, the websites that reap the most rewards in organic traffic and repeat visits deliver flawless on-page experiences, making it effortless for users to find the information or resources they’re looking for. 

That’s where Adobe Sensei comes in. 

Using artificial intelligence in web design to a new level, Sensei can design new customer journeys and optimize your existing ones with effective content personalization, AI-powered audience insights, and more. 

These insights include predicted customer behaviors based on specific customer attributes and conversion goals, which soon prove indispensable when making informed decisions about engaging with customers once they land on your site. 

While Sensei may not be a WordPress plugin, it can still do a great job at helping you plan your UX (User Experience) designs and determine the best way to tailor your content to meet the needs of different demographics. 

7. Quttera Web Malware Scanner

So far, we’ve focused almost entirely on using AI to design, build, and optimize the user-facing components of your website. Still, it’s important to remember that many factors contributing to a high-quality WordPress site occur behind the scenes. 

That’s especially the case with WordPress security, with tools like the Quttera Web Malware Scanner running in the background to keep your site, data, and customers safe from cyber attacks. 

The plugin utilizes AI to learn from each new malware threat and adapt accordingly, ultimately strengthening your site security continuously with no extra input on your part. 

This artificial intelligence scan engine combines useful features such as blacklist monitoring, post-scan reports, and an intuitive user dashboard. It is a solid alternative to leading WordPress security plugins like WordFence

8. AI Engine 

AI Engine is another comprehensive WordPress toolkit powered by ChatGPT-4. 

Much like the AI Power plugin we looked at, AI Engine combines content generation features with chatbot-building tools. Also, it adds a handy ChatGPT assistant to your WordPress dashboard to help you complete quick tasks on the fly. 

However, where it truly excels is that it allows you to create and save templates for everything from blog post layouts to SEO analysis of your content, making you much more efficient regarding the day-to-day tasks that help you grow your website from strength to strength.

9. Swift Performance AI

Swift Performance AI boasts that it’s the most innovative WordPress performance plugin on the market, and it’s hard to refute such a claim. 

The platform deploys AI to handle a whole host of essential performance monitoring and optimization tasks, including preloading important images and fonts and optimizing javascript to ensure your website always performs at its best. 

The AI at the heart of this plugin constantly learns about your site, the demographics it attracts, and its peak traffic hours. It can continually fine-tune its approach so that your users consistently enjoy the highest quality experience no matter when they visit you or what device they use.

Creating High-Quality Websites With AI Tools: A Final Summary 

Artificial intelligence tools may still be relatively new, but from the list above, they can play an invaluable role in creating high-quality WordPress sites.

Whether you’re generating a brand new theme or bespoke plugin with CodeWP or focusing on user experience enhancement with the likes of AI Power and Adobe Sensei, every single aspect of the design and management of your site can be streamlined.

As a result, you can significantly cut down the time it takes to create unique, high-caliber WordPress sites optimized for your conversion goals with no coding knowledge or technical ability required.
