featured snippets and Google update 2020

Latest Google Update & What You Have to Know About Featured Snippets

featured snippets and Google update 2020

As you know, regular Google updates are nothing short of unusual to see for a digital marketer. Last year, one of the biggest changes that affected website rankings across the board was definitely the https update and the SSL certificate requirement for all companies who were conducting business online. In 2020, Google is taking a closer look at Featured Snippets. 

What Are Featured Snippets? 

Featured Snippets are designed to provide a searcher with an answer that is relevant, concise and conveniently visible. Essentially, they provide every user with adequate solutions without having to click for specific results. If your website appears on top of Google searches, it’s called a position zero. Being in the center of searches is highly beneficial for getting organic traffic and thanks to featured snippets, in the past websites were able to appear on the first search page more than once. 

This year, Google is trying to declutter page one search results. In other words, URLs elevated to position zero with a featured snippet will no longer appear anywhere else on page one. This clean-up is known as deduplication. 

What does that mean for users? 

Quicker searches affecting in finding clean, relevant information. For marketers, this may not be the best news as it may limit the chances for higher organic traffic, click-through rates and more exposure.  

What can you do to alleviate the effect of these changes?  

Keep creating relevant, unique and interesting content! Focus on providing useful answers for all queries and don’t forget about voice search optimization!

2019 Voice Search Optimization

How to Master Voice Search Optimization in 2019

2019 Voice Search Optimization

Voice search has been making strides in the recent years and we’re not surprised. After all, it is a more convenient way for customers to find what they’re looking for online. Not to mention, it’s way quicker to ask your phone for an answer than it is to type it out. The more important question now is: have you incorporated voice search optimization into your SEO strategy yet?

If the answer is no, don’t wait any longer. According to ComScore, by 2020 50% of all queries are expected to be voice searches. More interestingly, 30% of searches will take place without a screen.

As a business owner or marketer, you probably wonder now what are the best ways to master voice search optimization this year? We have the answer.

How to Master Voice Search Optimization in 2019

  1. Focus on Question Phrases – Surely, voice queries contain conversational words and are longer but that doesn’t mean you need to use long-tail keywords in your content. Instead, think how your audience speaks about your business, products, and services to come up with the best keyword strategy.
  2. Answer the Public – Not sure what questions people are asking regarding your industry? Answer the Public is a great resource to use when working on your copy. Just make sure you’re including the question and the answer in your blog posts or company listings.
  3. Claim your Google My Business Listing – If you’re trying to target local customers, you need to make sure they can find you first. For example, when someone uses voice search to find an “ad agency in Delaware”, hopefully your business will come up thanks to the keyword strategy you have in place. However, if a potential customer wants to find ”ad agency near me”, this is where your claimed Google My Business listing can help. Make sure your business is up to date with correct address, contact info, open hours and website link to get the most out of local SEO benefits.
  4. Be Mobile-Friendly – Let’s be honest, attention spans are only getting shorter these days. Time to make sure your website is up to speed! Being mobile-friendly also includes easy navigation and clear web design. To check how your website is performing on mobile devices, you can use Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test Tool.
  5. Focus on Featured Snippets – You know those highlighted points on top of your search page? This is where you should aim to appear! This so-called “position zero” is a prime real estate for voice search. While there’s no definite answer on how to get there, you can certainly help it with your conversational tone and relevance of copy. This is why it’s so important to know what people are looking for! Remember to utilize Answer the Public platform when creating your content or working on your Google listing bio.voice search tips

Here’s Why Your Business Needs to Invest in Competitor Analysis

competitor analysis

Imagine this. It’s a new year and you are a small business owner. You are committed to taking your business to the next level and trying new marketing tools to achieve your goals. However, you are unsure of how much you should be spending. Should you run the risk of spending too little, causing yourself to be overpowered by your competitors with larger marketing budgets? Or what about the risk of overspending and a possibility of losing your leads to those who are quicker than you? This is where competitor analysis comes to play.

There is no exact science to what your business should be spending on marketing/ advertising, but through a thorough competitor analysis, you’ll have a good starting point.

 

COMPETITOR ANALYSIS

You may be wondering what exactly is a competitor analysis? In short, it is a report that is a compilation of what your competitors are doing online. Such research outlines their strengths and weaknesses, but most importantly, the opportunities and potential your business has to be successful in the digital realm.

If you’re still wondering whether your business needs to invest in a competitive analysis in 2019, here’s another good reason. Unless your competitors employ a dark web wizard who is able to hide all of their online actions (which I guarantee they do not), they are leaving a small digital footprint from which we are able to draw and interpret data from. We are also able to compile estimated search volume and bid prices for specific keywords on major search engines. Not to mention, generate an intelligent estimate as to what your competitors are spending on a monthly basis for certain keywords.

competition Analysis

Are you wondering how this helps you?

Well, with this data we are able to guide your marketing investment decision based upon what available marketing dollars you have. More simply put, we consider your available budget and suggest the route that is most beneficial for your business. This saves your business from failures such as getting caught in the middle of an unwinnable pay-per-click war with a competitor with a substantially larger marketing budget than you.

 

Ready to invest in your future?

Famous WSI Results is proud to offer a competitor analysis from now until 1/31/18 at half the cost! For $495, we will put forth our proven and tested practices towards giving your business the competitive edge it needs to take the next step in 2019.

Here Are Our 2019 Digital Marketing Predictions

Here Are Our 2019 Digital Marketing Predictions

Here Are Our 2019 Digital Marketing Predictions

Can you believe it’s almost time to say goodbye to 2018? As we close in the fourth quarter, we can’t help but reflect on this part year. There was surely a lot going on in the digital marketing world! From Google Chrome security updates, Facebook and Instagram algorithm changes to rise of new smart technology, we can’t wait to see what 2019 digital marketing tactics are going to trend!

Speaking of the new year, do you have your new marketing strategy in place? If you still haven’t thought of new digital marketing trends that 2019 might bring, here are our predictions: 

 

2019 digital marketing trends to watch out for: 

 

  1.  Optimize Content for Voice Search – Now is the time to brainstorm new keyword strategies that will cater to all those customers who love using the latest smart technologies (Alexa, Siri) in their search queries.
  2. Diversify Your Content Strategy – In the past year, digital creators and marketers focused more on long-form content (+2,000 words) to rank higher in search. However, it’s been proven that blogs or articles don’t have to be long to be considered valuable. That’s why it’s good to focus on both short and long-form pieces in the new year, so you can cater to those with shorter attention spans as well.
  3. Consider Influencer Marketing – This form of marketing/ advertising will only continue to grow in the next year. Partnering with influencers and content creators to promote your products or build brand awareness is an excellent and effective way to organically reach more valuable customers.
  4. Produce More Video Content – Video is already getting a boost in search from all voice queries, so don’t neglect it in 2019. Producing video content is a great way to liven up your marketing strategy!
  5. Invest in Chatbots – According to Forbes, research “predicts that the chatbot industry will grow significantly as enterprises are enabled to substantially reduce operating costs”. Needless to say, consider investing in this kind of a 24/7 customer service representative to take your business to the next level in 2019.

 For more on the future of marketing, please read this WSI article.

8 Holiday Marketing Strategies To Try This Season

holiday marketing tips

With Thanksgiving only about a month away, now is the time to get your holiday marketing strategies in place. Don’t know where to start? Think of ways to connect with your customers emotionally and tap into the spirit of giving back. 

If your goal is to increase conversion this busy holiday shopping season, we got you covered. Here are 8 holiday marketing strategies that will maximize your advertising efforts. 

 

8 holiday marketing strategies: 

 

  1.  Offer Special Deals – Reward your best customers for their loyalty throughout the year by giving exclusive discounts or personal gift based on their purchase history. 
  2. Create Holiday Landing Pages – Create holiday landing pages that you can send customers to from your social media and emails campaigns. Be sure to have several different designs and do some split testing to determine the highest converting pages. 
  3. Start a Social Media Campaign – Use holiday specific images, hashtags and special offers to attract customers willing to spend. This is the time when they are starting to search for deals! Encouraging social media interaction will also get people in the holiday spirit of shopping. 
  4. Focus on an Email Campaign – Use email more often to get customers excited about upcoming deals. Make sure to triple your marketing efforts on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Offer a contest, game or countdown to get more engagement. Don’t forget to add a popup subscribe form to your website and welcome new email subscribers with a discount code as well. 
  5. Focus on High Sales Days – Take advantage of the highest selling days of the season. Offer special promotions for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. 
  6. Give Back to the Community – Show support to the community by sponsoring a food drive or collecting clothing and toys for needy families. Many of your customers are looking for ways to make the season more meaningful by sharing with those less fortunate. 
  7. Send out Holiday Cards – Let your customers know how much you appreciate their business by sending out a holiday card with a personalized special offer just for them. For example, if Customer A repeatedly purchases a certain product or service, provide them with a coupon for that particular item. Continue to send out cards that may invite them to a special event, sale, discounts or free gift promotion. 
  8. Create a Holiday Video – Get your team together for a fun and inviting holiday video. There’s nothing more personal than sending good wishes to your customers and showing your fun personality at the same time!
