Dominating Search Engines in 2018

What You Should Know to Stay Ahead of Your Competitors
SEO is an engine that never stops. If you want to move to or remain at the top of the search results, you may need to modify your strategy. A method that was working for you perfectly a few years ago might not yield the same results now. You do not need to be an expert to know which changes to make, but you should remain informed about the latest trends. Implementing just a few modifications, such as creating more useful content, improving page loading speeds, and accommodating voice searches, could help you gain an edge over your competitors.

Top SEO Strategies for Today’s Marketers

When search engines impose changes or create new algorithms, the purpose is not to make life harder for online marketers. Generally, the primary objective is to improve the quality of search results. Everyone benefits when the experience is increasingly more useful for people performing online searches.

Consider the following techniques for enhancing the user experience, which can subsequently help you to achieve search engine domination:

  • Voice Search – More online users will rely on voice search now and in the future. Since the new smart speakers are activated by voice, this trend will likely become more commonplace than ever within a year or two. This means that keywords will still be quite relevant, but you may need to alter your usage to reflect the kind of queries being used in search engines.   
  • Page Speed – Whether people come to your website via your landing pages or they are repeat visitors, the pace at which they can access each page is important. This is especially crucial because of the high number of mobile devices in use, which require websites to perform specific optimization to increase page speeds. To get started, you can take Google’s page speed test to determine how your site rates.
  • Valuable Content – Value-driven material will never go out of style. However, what constitutes useful copy will continue to evolve as searches become more refined. Lengthier posts, cited sources, and information that solves problems for users will all be crucial site components in 2018.

Content is vital to your marketing strategy. The quality and volume of your content help drive your SEO rankings. The thing to remember is that SEO is just a skeleton without content. Content without SEO is just pretty fabric without a purpose. Many businesses produce content for SEO purposes. After all, you want your website to rank in search to gain customers. But if you forget about the human audience, your content won’t get consumed, shared and re-consumed. When you focus on your user first, making your content relevant and useful, your audience wants more, leading to better SEO rankings.

For some searches, videos are getting more notice for more interactive and informative information for users. Another addition to search is the rich FAQ snippets or “people also ask” boxes. Google’s “mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.” Understanding that Google and other search engines aren’t created for your online marketing efforts can help you provide the right content to maximize your SEO strategy. FAQs were once an afterthought. Today, FAQs can boost your organic search efforts in multiple ways. Almost every page has the potential to function like an FAQ page.
