Optimising websites for search continues to evolve. As there had been a greater emphasis on mobile search optimisation vs desktop the past several years, the future of voice search optimisation techniques for devices are now becoming just as important, especially for some industries. Just as mobile search differs from desktop search. requiring different SEO tactics and strategy, voice has its own set of nuances that requires a different strategy and methods for optimisation.
Voice Search is a function of a device that allows users to obtain search engine results through speech activation rather than by typing a search query. As the trend for voice command is embedded in more and more devices, so are search queries adapting to reflect the style of language used for the voice search.
The ease of voice search means that it is now used by all ages, so the scope for how it is used is vast. Infact, the greater it is used, the more that Google Voice Search and similar technologies are “learning” to recognise the voice commands and keywords. This means that, over time, Google learns not only the unique characteristics of your voice and the way you speak, but also your behaviours, browsing interests, and other personal information. Google is constantly also “learning” more about you as a consumer by analysing your browsing habits, shopping preferences, and other online behaviour - this is how Google provides tailored, relevant search results !
So, with the above in mind you may now be wondering how to go about adapting your website to being picked up in voice searches. Essentially if you are already using current SEO best practices, there’s very little you need to do differently. The downside is that if you aren’t using current SEO best practices, there will be a lot of work to do.

(An FAQ page can benefit some businesses) This also means that some voice search query strings can be longer than typical keyword search queries too.

Using Voice Search to Transform Your Search Strategy
To provide a positive user experience, people need to be able to conduct business from a variety of digital platforms. Entering a question into a search engine on a mobile device isn’t as easy as typing on a computer keyboard. These users want a more efficient way to get the information they seek. That’s where voice search comes into play.
How Voice Search Impacts Your Strategy
Instead of typing words into a search bar, voice recognition technology allows users to simply ask their questions into a device. As search engines process these conversational queries, keywords are no longer necessary, so websites are rewarded with high rankings when their content aligns with the user’s spoken request.
With the right tools, you can learn what your prospects are searching for and lead them to your website through relevant content. Several services help collect and analyze this information. Using these can help generate traffic and increase your ROI.
