SEO Focus: Organic Search Results Facing Competition from Voice Search
Several recent articles and reports have touched on how organic search no longer has the market cornered on how people find the information they’re looking for.
Does that mean users are becoming more comfortable with relying on pay-per-click ads? Not necessarily.
As mobile search volume has surpassed that of the desktop variety, voice search is also on the rise.
Meanwhile, machine learning continues to better understand and predicts users’ behavior, and that will continue to change the look of search engine results.
Here are a few takeaways when it comes to the latest developments in organic search, voice search and machine learning:
- A Stone Temple Consulting study found 60 percent of people want more results available via mobile search in lieu of visiting a webpage. Are digital marketers adjusting their strategies accordingly?
- There are a multitude of incentives for consumers to turn to voice search rather than typing a query into a search engine. This trend will likely accelerate, rather than fizzle out.
- New consumer behaviors, driven by improved voice technology, must be accounted for.
- The first shake-up being driven by voice search will be for eCommerce businesses. They will need new digital marketing strategies to keep pace.
- Closer analysis of how voice search, along with machine learning, could substantially change how marketers view the value of organic search results.

Featured Service: Website and Digital Asset Audit
Given what you now know about how organic SEO is facing competition from other modes of search, it’s important to not only optimize your website, but to have other marketable, lead-generating assets. When businesses first make an inquiry into Eminent SEO, we often start with an audit before we have them commit to a month-to-month contract.
Our auditing services actually go well beyond the prospect’s website(s). We also evaluate all other brand collateral – online and offline – and evaluate whether these assets are legitimately bringing attention to the brand – and if it’s the right kind of attention. From there, we will offer suggestions and submit a proposal for how we can build up the prospect’s online presence and brand, month by month.
If you’re unsure if your website and digital assets are bringing in the right kind of traffic and want to put your best foot forward, give Eminent SEO a call today at 800.871.4130.
