Jack Thornburg, VP of Organic Growth at UpCity, says that the rise in voice search usage has been a trend UpCity has been keeping an eye on for some time.
“While voice search technology isn’t relatively new, I won’t be surprised to see it skyrocket in usage in the near future,” Thornburg says. “As technology continues to adapt, the previous drawbacks of voice search will be ironed out alongside the advancements of artificial intelligence to make it more efficient.”
“The reason this is so important for digital marketers to keep an eye on,” Thornburg adds, “is because people don’t type the way that they talk. If your SEO strategy isn’t already planning for voice search, it’s important to start now, before you fall behind the competition. That’s why we provide resources for businesses to find SEO experts at UpCity, to help keep on track in this ever-evolving market.”
