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.
