3 SEO Tips for Voice Search Optimization: Get Ahead of the Competition NOW

3 SEO Tips for Voice Search Optimization: Get Ahead of the Competition NOW

have you been optimizing your website for voice search well if you haven’t you’re really gonna get screwed because in the future everyone is starting to use devices like Alexa from Amazon to perform voice searches hey everyone i’m neil patel and today i’m gonna share with you how you can generate more search traffic using voice search so the first if i have for you guys is make sure your site is compatible with the HTTP framework if a website is HTTP from what we found it’s much more likely to generate traffic from voice search we’ve noticed that over 65 percent of the results from voice search are from sites that have HTTPS the second tip I have for you is to build authoritative domain this isn’t gonna happen overnight you’re not gonna be in the next Forbes or Huffington Post or Business Insider but you can still be Authority within your niche when we found this site to have a lot of links a lot of amazing content social shares good user experience over all their authority because they deserve to are the ones that are getting the lion’s share of the voice their search traffic and if you yourself don’t have an amazing site or amazing experience and you don’t feel your authority that’s okay just do something to fix it make your content better make your design better outreach to people who link to your competitors and ask them for a link go above and beyond with your marketing to be the leader if you’re not willing to be the leader you’re not gonna get the traffic from voice search the next tip I have from you and this comes from my friend Brian Dean if you want to do all on voice search you need to make sure your website loads fast it needs to be precisely 4.6 seconds or faster that’s more than 50% faster than the average webpage so if your website loads fast you’re more likely to get the traffic from voice search if it loads slow probably not gonna get that traffic do you know how fast your website loads leave a comment below if you don’t go to Google PageSpeed putting your website let us know what your score is and how fast it’s loading last but not least you need to have short answers within your content here’s what I mean by this if you want to go after voice search similar to normal SEO pages with over 2200 words perform better than pages that are 500 words or 600 700 the more content you have the more Google can index you for different terms the more traffic you can potentially get within that content you want to have quick short answers for example if I’m writing an article that breaks down SEO and a whole beginners guide to it maybe I’ll have a heading called what is SEO and then I can have a one or two sentence answer to what SEO is that’s an example of in-depth content right how I can use headings and end up content and use short answers because that makes it easier for Google to give people the answers so if you follow all of those tips you’ll be able to generate a lot more traffic through voice search I know it’s not popular yet I know won’t make up the majority of your traffic but you need to get on top of things because eventually become way more popular and you don’t want to be scrambling at the last minute to get that extra search traffic so thank you for watching if you enjoyed this video leave a comment like share subscribe let other people know about it and thank you very much if I can do anything to help you let me know in the comments and I’ll respond I’ll try to get you the most traffic possibly from voice search

  • Neil, you're awesome….

  • Thanks sir for all information. It is really helpful.

  • This is crazy!
    I was just looking into "How do I get my site to become cheetah fast?" and all i come up with is :

    Image optimization (deleted most of them)
    Reduce Http requests ( down to 57 still want to go lower )
    And only keep plugins you Actually use (i have 6 active) and else something about a 'lazy load'?

    I'm brand new just winging it honestly.

    I even deleted all 200+ revisions but apparently that doesn't really help anything haha

    Anyway, I'm on a journey and i was just thinking about getting in contact with you, as I'm in San Diego and look it here!

    You post exactly what i need at the time i was thinking about it.
    How synchronistic!

    Thank you Neil!

    My site generally loads at 3 seconds and no more than 4 but for business purposes , i need this site at 2 seconds flat or faster.
    I know it can be done.

    Do you have any tips on how to make a site seriously " too fast" i really need this site to be impressive and highly converting right from the launch, which is July 5th

    Thanks in advance love the content and your vision.

    *Please excuse this extra long comment for a simple question.

  • I'm confused about the first point, about https. 65% of voice searched results are https? Google says 73% of all pages loaded in chrome are https. Doesn't this reflect an overall shift to https, and not specific to voice search? How does the method of searching relate to the protocol?
