IMPROVE THE MOBILE EXPERIENCE OF YOUR WEBSITE

If users are turning more and more towards voice search, it is also because it is in the continuity of the mobile use of the internet which represents more than 50% of the use of the internet.

Indeed, most voice searches are done to search for a route or information in a mobility situation.

It is therefore essential to optimize your website for mobile use. To do this, start by checking the responsive design of your site. Your website must have interfaces that adapt to mobile screens. Also, remember to check the loading speed of your website. The faster she is, the better. Mobile users do not like waiting and do not hesitate to close the pages too slow, which could increase your bounce rate. To optimize the loading speed of your website, you can compress your images, delete unnecessary plugins or go to format AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages).

POSITION YOURSELF ON LONG TAIL EXPRESSIONS

To optimize your site for voice SEO, you can not settle for generic keywords. You must position yourself on long tail expressions, i.e., precise expressions generally used during voice queries.

ASK YOURSELF THE RIGHT QUESTIONS

Remember to use these long-tail expressions to formulate titles in the form of questions. Why? Just because when you do a voice search, you ask questions. This is why you should favor query formats. In particular to define your titles and subtitles. If your title matches a user’s word for word, you’re more likely to appear in the results of your query.

REMEMBER TO ADD AN FAQ PAGE TO YOUR WEBSITE

Speaking of questions … Creating a FAQ page to list the most asked questions by your users is an excellent idea in terms of SEO.

Use the comments left by your users to build a list of questions to post on your FAQ page. You will need to answer them clearly and accurately using relevant keywords and phrases.

It seems that we have gone through the key points that will allow you to optimize your site for voice search. One last tip for the road? Do you try to voice search! Nothing better to understand the functioning of the voice search than to experiment it by oneself. So grab your phone fast and ask for Siri or Ok Google!

  1. Awesome advice. I used long-tail expression research to figure out out my next blog post, but I can’t say it’s not challenging. You mostly have to ask the right questions to get to where you need to go for ideas. But it’s definitely worth it.

  2. This seems really interesting because I never thought about searches using voice. This seems like a big puzzle that needs to be solved but it seems confusing too!

  3. Great tips to optimize for voice search. I’ve seriously never thought of this before. I have a lot of blog posts starting with questions and subheadings that start with questions so that’s good. But I definitely need to get an FAQ page up. Great suggestion!

  4. SEO has been a good route to gain traffic for your website but I never heard about Voice SEO until now.
