I’ve now used both ChatGPT and Google Bard, which are two distinct AI tools. Which do you think is better, ChatGPT or Google Bard? Well, both have their own unique qualities and features. I asked both ChatGPT and Google Bard the same questions, and here are the differences between the two. I’ll let you decide which is better, ChatGPT or Google Bard.
First Question: Tell me about Bill Hartzer
I asked both ChatGPT and Google Bard to tell me about myself, Bill Hartzer. Google Bard didn’t know anything. I think this is surprising, actually, since I have a Knowledge Graph entry, and have for quite some time. So, it appears to me that the Knowledge Graph data hasn’t been moved over to Google Bard. I find this surprising because Google has this data. You’d think that they would have included it in Bard.
ChatGPT knows about Bill Hartzer, though, even though some of the information is incorrect. I had to use the OpenAI Playground because ChatGPT was having an issue (probably too many requests on their server?):
2nd Question: Domain Name Tweets
Let’s take a look at some questions regarding Tweets. The AIs are good to use for content generation, and sometimes it’s difficult to come up with Tweets for Twitter, for example. You can get a list of tweets from the AI, and then schedule them. For example, you could schedule 10 tweets over 10 days.
I asked Google Bard to give me 10 tweets about domain names specifically. I only got 4 tweets about domain names, the others were about SEO, PPC, email marketing, content marketing, and websites. So it wasn’t 10 tweets about domain names:
I asked the same of ChatGPT, to give me 10 tweets about domain names that I could use. I really like how it included hashtags to include as well. Perfect.
Search Engine Optimization Article
I asked both ChatGPT and Google Bard to write me an article about search engine optimization, and include certain keywords. I got two different articles, which is great. So both did a good job. However, Google actually gave me 4 different versions, which is fabulous. I can theoretically post one on a blog, and then post the other 3 articles on other websites. Or post those other articles on other websites and link back to the original article. Just a thought. The first one below is ChatGPT’s article, the second one is Google Bard’s article about SEO.
At the end of each article that Google Bard gives you, there is a source given, which is a link to the source of the article. ChatGPT does not give you the source.
So Which is Better? ChatGPT or Google Bard?
I think that it depends… there are certain times where I am definitely going to use Google Bard, such as the case of articles. I like the fact that it gives me 3 new drafts to use, so I get 4 different versions. But there are other cases where I will use ChatGPT, such as for writing Tweets and short posts. Right now I cannot give you a straight or definitive answer to which one is best. Time will tell, though, and maybe it’s personal preference?
