0:10 Everyone is starting to use devices like Alexia, from Amazon, to perform voices searches. Today I'm going to share with you how you can generate more search traffic using Voice Search.
0:30 Voice Search Optimization Tip #1
So the first tip I have for you guys is to make sure your site is compatible with HTTPS framework. If a website is HTTPS, from what we found, it's much more likely to generate traffic from Voice Search. We've noticed that over 65% of the results from Voice Search are from sites that have HTTPS.
0:50 Voice Search Optimization Tip #2
The second tip I have for you is to build authoritative domain. This isn't going to happen overnight. You're not going to be the next Forbes or Huffington Post or Business Insider, but you can still be an authority within your niche. What we found is sites that have a lot of links, a lot of amazing content, social shares, good user experience, overall, they're an authority because they deserve too, are the ones that are getting the lions to share of the Voice 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, 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 one to be the leader, you're not going to get the traffic from Voice Search.
1:45 Voice Search Optimization Tip #3
The next tip I have from you, and this comes from my friend, Brian Dean if you want to do well in Voice Search you need to make sure you're 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 going to get that traffic. Do you know how fast your website loads? Leave a comment below. If you don't go to Google PageSpeed, put on your website, let us know what your scores and how fast it's loading.
2:11 Voice Search Optimization Tip #4
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 2,200 words perform better than pages that are 500 words, or 600, or 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 rhyme writing an article that breaks down SEO and a whole beginners guide to it, maybe I'll have a heading called, What is SEO? 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 in in-depth content and use short answers because that makes it easier for Google to give people the answers.
3:10 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 it won't make up the majority of your traffic, but you need to get on top of things because eventually it will become way more popular and you don't want to be scrambling at the last minute to get that extra search traffic.

You’re very welcome!
Thanks for these amazing tips
You are welcome!
Please think about WordPress article writing practical tutorial
Thanks for the suggestion.
Yes we love to watch
You’re awesome, Neil and you have a really nice smile too. 😊
Thanks, Justin!! 🙂
Another High Quality content video. I’ve been reading Kissmetrics blog since so long. I know this guy is always updated and has upgraded techniques.
Glad you liked it!
I can always count on Neil’s suggestion!
Ever since 3 years ago I found his blog, I’ve kept my eyes opened for the latest digital marketing tactics.
Even though Neil has been cutting down on blog post production, I can see that he’s been doing other great things like teaching us the latest SEO tactics.
My page speed is currently at 3.7s, not too fast, but I am in the middle of optimizing it now!
Definitely going to try to get Alexa to show my answer!
Thanks for the continued support!
Love this one. I added a Q&A to one of my sites last year to help protect me with this. I also added HTTPS this year. You rock my man. P.S. Do the Alexa device use answers from Google search when showing results? What platforms must your content or service be on for them to give the person asking the answers?
Great vide! How do I know if something got searched with voice?
Search Console and Google Analytics have been discussing adding these features
Nice, I’m starting to see 200 -300 visitors/month on my site. Been working on content since January. Neil Patel
Hey Neil! Thanks for the video. Very informative! I have a question. Should I wait till the front-end of the website is ready and then start doing content writing or should I start it right away?
Start right away. Start building a stockpile of content.
Thank You very much!
confused, so is a good format. question h1/h2, few sentences then the rest of the details. this would seem problematic since all my paragraphs are two or three sentences. are we assuming google only reads the first to the searcher
I wouldn’t assume that. Look at the way my blog is structured. It works well!
Thanks sir for all information. It is really helpful.
You are very welcome!
thanks Niel, I got a 99 out of 100 @ google page speed tool. 3,5 secs
Thanks, I can get headstart in voice search while my competitors don’t care about this
Go for it!
Great Video Neil!! I wanted to know if both our seo and ppc landing pages have the same content should be nofollow/no-index our ppc pages to avoid duplicate content issue?
You should change up the content
Thanks, Neil, really appreciate this information, although all of the advice does really apply to “traditional” SEO and not really focused on Voice Optimisation. Regards from the UK.
