Voice search has become the new engagement in the field of SEO. As the number of mobile users increases, the voice search also reflects a massive growth. Google Home, Siri, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa, exemplify this phenomenon. We can optimise our content to make it voice search-friendly by using the natural language with concise answers to satisfy the users. We can also include long-tail keywords and practice writing longer content as it is observed that voice search queries are longer than typed queries.

It is not the cheapest form of content but it is highly engaging. Using it we can design creative content and give a good picture of your product in the minds of customers. You can effectively use social media for video content, for instance: Facebook Live, Instagram TV, and reads. Moreover, you can even create your own YouTube channel and take the advantage of YouTube SEO through YouTube videos. One can also attach the web link to the video but while making a YouTube video we should add a good title thumbnail and Metadata to it.
Interlinking is new to SEO, it is time-saving as compared to external link building, so interlink is better. It is rather quick and free and helps to improve the ranking of the page. While using the internal link you should confirm that your link is on the correct and relevant anchor text and should decide the page on to which the internal links will be placed.
