What is Voice Search?

Voice Search is exactly what is says on the tin! It means searching with your voice rather typing through a search engine on your mobile, tablet or computer device. The experience is aimed at being a much faster and personalised journey for the user and their desired search.

There are a number of ways voice searches can be made through digital voice assistants such as Cortana, Siri, Google Assistant and Alexa along with home hub systems such as Amazon Alexa and Google Home.

Optimising for Voice Search

In order to optimise voice search, it’s about making sure your website is detectable through more conversational queries. People search very differently when using their voice instead of typing of device, we look at the following key elements to help adapt your content:

  • Optimising for micro moments where users need immediate and ready to use information
  • There tends to be a lot more question based searches through voice search, this means adapting content or creating new content for ‘how to’ ‘what is’ etc
  • Search queries in voice search tend to use ‘I’, again it means adapting to this to accommodate searches like ‘can i ..’ or ‘do i…’
  • Ensuring your optimising site for localised queries such as ‘near me’, e.g. ‘plumbers near me’
