Website content for spoken search

Cut the waffle, web content needs to work with spoken search terms

Voice search and web content

Google recently released their guidelines for ‘eyes free technology’ – you know, the voice assistants such as Siri, Google and Alexa that we’re all being encouraged to use on our smart devices. I have to say, I use Siri every day – she’s on my iMac, iPhone and iPad and I think she’s great.

I’ll point you in the direction of two useful articles that are worth reading:

You can read them both in detail but the key points to take away are:

  • All of the platforms expect voice requests to become increasingly common
  • Spoken responses are very different from the ones that people will type on their keyboards
  • Keep things simple if you want to rank well for voice search requests
  • Cut the waffle

I’ll keep this post short. Have a good day.
