Voice search – it’s coming faster than you think, and I am already having clients ask how they can get ready now.
Here is some information to get you started thinking about what you need to do to be ready for voice search.
First what exactly is voice search?
Voice search is where you speak into a computer or smartphone and the device then performs a search for you returning relevant information and reading the most relevant information to you.
So how can you even get ready for something like this?
- Make sure you take time to do a content review. Clean up, slim down content, review page titles and page meta tags and slim and trim what you have to be concise.
- Use two and three word search phases as the focus of your content. Voice search will not be focused on the long tail phases.
- Make sure you have your full address including city and spelled out state and your phone number that is clickable on all your website pages. To place on near me searches you have to have your location spelled out! Search engines will deliver your content for near me searches only when you are in close proximity to the end user.
- Work to improve relevancy of your content and start to strip down your pages and break long content into multiple pages so that pages are on one topic, searchable by search engines and deliver answers to questions.
