SEO Keywords for the Future: Audio not Written Text
Is the future of SEO and Keyword Optimization Changing?
Is the future of SEO for keywords wrapped in Oral queries and not what you type in on your PC or mobile keyboard?
I started my morning with my usual habit: Log into C-panel and check the links in awstats on SkipperWorks, trying to figure out what keywords are being linked to!
If you aren’t in the know, I’ve had a huge problem with this nice collection of Chinese bots…haven’t figured out if they are really searching for information or just spamming my site…I mean 1,868,323 “Hits” so far this month and going strong.
They all link to one article….every one. I had almost as many 400 errors as hits from them. Took a chance and changed the title of the article…just added one word to the front end of the title and edited the perma link.
My Chinese bots dutifully followed the article, so now I am getting a soup can full of 302s instead of 400s.
But this interesting experiment isn’t what I want to talk about today!
Do You Spend To Much Time Learning SEO and not Doing?
I, unfortunately tend to stay to much in the “learning” phase of blogging, instead of the Doing it Now and make some needed cash! Just to put things into perspective, I definitely have a deficit when it comes to doing my SEO….find a good keyword and some extras and write an article including them all.
Think I was following a link from Lisa Magoulas and ended up on Moz.com and started reading an article by Will Critchlow about using voice queries to do searches on the phone….
His initial take was that voice navigation instead of typing in keywords wasn’t going to make it!
In his own defense he presented a lot of reasons why he came to this conclusion….The whole article is here: http://moz.com/blog/i-think-i-might-have-been-wrong-about-voice-search for your convenience in checking it out!
To make a long story shorter, Will thinks that Google has developed and is refining the process of doing “audio or voice” searches which combines minimum input with your personal information to return the results you want immediately.
Remember that laughed at social sharing thing called Google + that hardly anyone uses? Hangouts? Google Chat?
SEO and Your YouTube Videos…Sound Counts as Much as Text?
I know from listening to Ray Lane the Video Guy that he recommends repeating your YouTube video title and your major keyword (which should be in the title) when you begin talking on your videos…all for the SEO benefits…
He seems to think that these “Audio” keywords are just as important or even more important than those tags we enter and keywords sprinkled into the description.
Since Keyword optimization is part of my active quest for ranking my site (wrong goal, Google ranks Pages not sites!) I was happy to run across this article and some of the gold included.
It all goes back to why some of my videos rank quickly and others just sit there unless I Tweet or Facebook them to get some traffic! Definitely videos with a voice over, even not keyword optimized seem to do better than the ones with music.
Since you can now end up with a Google or is it Youtube transcription on your video…should you be doing your own transcript and attaching it to your videos?
If one is attached, you can edit it and include your marvelous keywords in the first line and sprinkle them down in the body and at the end….just as if you were writing an article to post on your blog…
Somewhere I read that the transcript doesn’t even need to make sense, just give the “robots” an indication of what the video is all about.
The reasoning was that most transcripts furnished by Youtube often don’t reflect exactly what is being said in the video…so the theory expounded was just add your keywords where you want them.
Which brings me to the real reason I was so interested in this article about Voice Querying instead of typing in keywords. I am looking for a program that will take the audio from a video and type it out for you….Instant transcript…instead of paying a service (can’t afford right now) to do the time consuming work for you.
I’ve looked at several add ons in Google Chrome but they aren’t rated that reliable just yet.
Anyone have the name or a link to a program they have used to produce transcripts that doesn’t break the bank?
I’d be interested…leave a comment and let me know!
Just below are two links for some really interesting info on SEO…I am an affiliate for both..so be warned! But they explain it so much better than I can here…worth reading the sales page for the good…think both also give away a free ebook just for looking.
