Voice Search Optimization 2018
Voice Search Optimization 2018 – Are You Ready For It?
According to Google, 20 percent of all mobile search queries are voice search, and that number will only go up.
Yet for most SEO professionals, not much has changed in the way they optimize content for this new way to search. Now is the perfect time to pay attention to voice search and to start incorporating SEO strategies that can increase your chances to show up in voice results.
Voice search and personal voice assistants like Siri, Cortana, Google Assistant, Google Home, Amazon Echo and the Apple HomePod have shifted how people search. Instead of typing a cryptic search phrase like “hair stylist Chicago,” people using voice search can ask a question as if they’re talking to another person: “OK, Google, where should I go to get a haircut?”
Voice search continues to grow
According to ComScore, half of smartphone users use voice technology, and of those, one in three use it daily.
Here are some tactics to help you optimise your website for the oncoming voice search revolution.
