Everyone’s familiar with Search Engine Optimization for your website, right? But have you thought about your VOICE Search Optimization?
The rise of voice-activated devices like Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant are once creating a new way for you to engage with customers and key audiences. One study suggests that 58% of consumers have used voice search in the last year to locate information about businesses. That number will continue to grow as devices become more sophisticated and new laws encourage more hands-free device use, especially when driving.
According to Google, Voice Search is currently being used for finding directions, dictating texts, asking the phone to make a call, and finding moving times. These are still pretty basic requests, but voice searches are becoming more sophisticated all the time.
Here are some facts:
- 46% of voice search users search for a new business daily
- 27% visit a website after a search
- 22% of smart home speaker owners have made a purchase using the device
- And it’s not just young people using voice—both old and young consumers are taking advantage of voice search.
