Our Approach To Creating Content

At ChessForSharks, we strongly believe in creating high-quality and valuable content for our readers. That’s why we rely on human creativity and expertise for most of our articles. Our writers are passionate chess enthusiasts who create engaging and informative content that covers various aspects of the game. They make up 90% of our site’s content.

For the remaining 10%, we use automation to assist us in writing generic content that is not very complex or specialized. However, we do not blindly trust the AI output. We always edit and verify every piece of AI-generated content to ensure that it meets our standards of quality and accuracy. We also make sure that it provides useful information and answers the search intent of our readers.

We only collaborate with brands that we WHOLEHEARTEDLY believe in and trust. Our commitment is to maintain editorial independence and provide unbiased chess insights to our audience. Any mention of a specific chess product or service in our articles is because we genuinely endorse it and consider it valuable to our readers.
