Optimise your web content for voice search by observing the following techniques:

  • Use conversational language when writing.
  • Structure content in Q&A format where possible.
  • Ensure your local listings are optimised, as most people use voice search to get information about physical locations they want to visit (e.g. “where is a coffee shop near me?”).
  • Target long-tail keywords instead of short-tail keywords; while people tend to use short-tail keywords when typing (e.g. “voice search seo”), they are much more likely to use long-tail keywords when using Voice Search (e.g. “How do I optimise my website for Voice Search?”).
  • Use Google’s Structured Data Markup Helper to mark up your site with snippet-friendly microdata that Googlebot can easily understand.
  • Make your website as mobile friendly as possible by improving your mobile site speed, breaking up your content into scannable chunks, incorporating a responsive design and spacing out buttons to make them “thumb-friendly”.
