People conducting voice searches speak to the search engine using sentences,as if it’s a person, as opposed to short hand phrases which are used when interacting through a keyboard device.
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Google’s recent September 2013 algorithm update, was a major overhaul of the search engine and focuses on creating a more ‘semantic web’ which understands user search ‘intent’ more than prior. With the advent of greater voice based searches being conducted, this essentially creates a much smarter search engine which can decipher intent to a greater degree and return results which are more in line with user intent. Jumpfactor’s analysis indicates that the seo content marketing methodology of today will need to shift even more towards complete user focused writing while minimizing “gaming” tactics or “seo keyword” tactics which so many SEO firms employ today.
“Voice based search changes the SEO keyword paradigm, since more full phrases or sentences are typically used,” states Director of Search at Jumpfactor. “People conducting voice searches speak to the search engine using sentences, as if it’s a person, as opposed to short hand phrases which are used when interacting through a keyboard device. This will change the metrics for such SEO indicators as keyword density; likewise keyword volumes will change and become more diffusely spread across a larger spectrum of phrases since people speak in much greater permutations and combinations of words than they type.”
The days of being able to target very obvious short 'keywords' are over, and a more holistic approach of having deep and thorough content which discusses topics in detail, coupled with high quality social indicators and references, is the way of the future. Companies leveraging such a methodology within their content marketing and seo content strategies will gain benefit faster. Once again, this shift presents an opportunity for early adopters to gain market share by partnering with quality SEO agencies. Jumpfactor’s focus on helping Professional Service firms and technology firms, provides these end businesses with even greater opportunity since the need for domain expertise and deep content requires writers with domain experience.
“The days of do-it-all digital marketing agencies catering to all market verticals are numbered. Specialization is the key to being able to deliver quality content and high powered results for clients," states are client services manager at Jumpfactor. "Agencies embracing this concept will leap forward, while those who do not will be left behind.”
