So Why Should You Care About Voice Search Facts?

We understand. You are already super busy running your business and have little time for anything else. Especially something that involves search engine optimization!

Before you get all excited about this new option, we need to caution you! Voice search is not for everyone, every business, or every application. And even if it is an option for you and your business, you have some work ahead of you.

Is Voice Search for You and Your Business?

Well, that pretty much depends on you and your business. As you can see from these voice search facts, specific industries, and verticals benefit more than others. So better not expect too much at the beginning. Instead, imagine what your target audience is searching for on your site. Can this be easily articulated in a spoken question? And what kind of search results can users expect? These are the type of details we help our clients determine as they get started with voice search.

Starting With Voice Search

As you can see from this voice search facts infographic from SEOTribunal voice search has been around for a while! We had no idea it has been around a lot longer than us. And many of you are already familiar with voice search assistants such as Siri and Alexa. So it is not that big a jump from there to voice search. But there are some additional considerations.

Because voice search is relatively new, few business websites are fully prepared to take full advantage of it. There are a few things you must do before you can get started with voice search. They include improving your user experience and optimizing your website content.

Once you have that part done, you can start implementing your voice search strategy. Keep in mind that this is emerging technology, and it may take you some time to achieve measurable and sustainable results. But that doesn’t mean you should not give voice search a try. As these voice search facts illustrate, this emerging strategy will only gain in importance. Why not align your search marketing strategy now, so you are ahead of the curve?
