If you want to keep your blog up to date and optimize it for the voice search then here some useful things to make it easier for you.
Optimize the Local-Friendly
People probably use voice search to get information about places where they want to visit. They often say like “find a gas station near me” or like “find pizza takeout in Austria” so it would be fine when you optimize your page for the keyword “pizza takeout Austria.”
Voice search can recognize easily “near me” and it will show the results in form of physical locations. So, it is important to list the local places according to the niche on where you are working. Google Business listing is one of the best places where you can sign up and add your business detail like location, nature, timing etc. which will directly show then results to the user using voice recognition and make sure yours is set up and accurate.
How People Speak
This is like a keyword search you are using for your business or blog, you should start thinking about what kind of questions can bring people on your site.
The best way to do this practice is by yourself voice search, better to ask the question you have in your mind and think what results come from your blog.
There is also best tool “Answer the Public” which can help you to find out the different kind of long-tail keywords you should use according to your site niche.
For me, if ask myself then I usually start with like how, why, where and who. I.e. I will say something like “Where is the nearest pizza place.”
Most of the voice searches are happens on mobile devices, and you have been working for the voice search to get your site in results then your site should be mobile user-friendly. Keep in mind Google is always a fan of responsive web design and they have preferred the mobiles first sites.
You are done with good mobile-friendly design and got suck on speed then there are less chances of sites to get in results. You need your site page to load as quick as possible. So the means if you want to participate in voice and mobile search, then your site needs to be fast and mobile friendly.
There are many tools available online where you can test your site about speed for web-based and mobile friendly in which one of the best is Google PageSpeed Insights.
Test and Test Again
When you have done with optimizing your site for voice search, then better to test the keywords you are optimizing for on more than two voice search platforms. Like some of them are Siri and Cortana because they’re always worth it.
After having these platforms then start test your queries as just like you were a normal person and see what results shows up. In those results, you can see your website starts to rank in voice search.
