Why Are SEO Services Needed

SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” Its a process of getting your website ranked up on the organic listings of search engine results pages (SERPs).

SEO services are the services SEO agencies or consultants provide to improve your website according to the stringent rules of search engines like Google.

Some of these services include: link building

MediaOne has special proprietary ways to improve your website for you to get there.

Unlike paid campaigns which are subject to fierce bidding wars that often result in non-profitable marketing, SEO is lower cost and stable.


Consider this if you run an SME.

You rank for a keyword like “office furniture” or “accounting software” or “tuition agency”.

It appears as #3 on Google Page 1.

The search volume for that keyword is 1,000 per month.

You can expect 9 sales for that keyword alone. If your gross income is $1,000 per sale you can get $9,000 per month.

Its possible to rank for 5 related keywords or equivalent. Then make $45,000 per month.

MediaOne does this – and more – for its many clients big and small. Including enterprise clients who need to turn over millions per month.

Find out how.

Other Questions About Finding The Right SEO Services

Finding the right SEO services in Singapore can indeed be a daunting task. However, it is crucial to ensure that you are in a position to select the right agency for your organisation since this will ultimately determine the overall digital marketing performance of your company. It is also equally important to note that bad SEO services can actually undermine the overall ratings of your company and this will ultimately get your website penalised in the mid to long term.

There many SEO agencies that operate in Singapore and thus, it might be difficult for one to identify the best one that can improve the overall ratings of your website. As most people are not experienced in digital marketing, it might be tough to identify a capable SEO consultant for their needs.

We thank you for considering MediaOne and hope these questions can provide you with an understanding of how we work. For further questions please do call us at (65) 6789 9852 or email us at [email protected] for a FREE and NO-OBLIGATIONS consultation.

Our team of professionals will come up with a comprehensive SEO strategy that is compliant with all Google best practices. We will start by carrying out a technical SEO audit of your site to identify areas that need to be fixed then identify a list of best keywords that you should be targeting.

It is very important to manage expectation quite early during your engagement with the SEO agency of your choice.

The main objective of eliciting the services of an SEO agency is to improve the overall rankings of your website in terms of the overall rankings of your site. It is therefore important to ascertain the overall expected improvement in terms of the ranking of your site by Google and other such engines. Be that as it may, it is important to note that no SEO agency worth its name can give an accurate answer to this question.

This is supported by the fact that Google search engines use a generic algorithm that can be difficult to accurately predict. However, an SEO agency worth its salt should at the very least offer you with an estimate in terms of the rankings improvement you should anticipate over a certain period of time. As much as this estimation may not be accurate, it will indeed go a long way in enabling you have a rough estimate in terms of what to expect from the agency and this will indeed go along way with respect to managing the expectations of the clients.

This information will also enable you ascertain whether or not you are getting value for your money.

For MediaOne we usually guarantee 30% of keywords in 6 months and we USUALLY exceed those targets!

Backlinks play an integral role in search engine optimisation. In fact, this is one of the primary factors that Google uses to rank websites.

We will scour the internet for authority sites that can link back to your site to show Google that your site is also an authority.

We will also continuously monitor the backlink linking campaigns to ensure that there are no bad links that you could affect the credibility and ranking of your site.Link building is increasingly becoming a significant issue that most SEO agencies must take into consideration. This is due to the fact that Google is now cracking down on what can be described as stuffed links and these are links that one simply embeds in the content without due consideration to the popularity of the content that they are linking to.

This therefore implies that one should be very good at what they do in order to attract many people to link to their sites.

In light of this fact, it is important for one to ensure that the agency that they are using is in a position to employ the most effective link building techniques that will not undermine the overall rankings of the websites that they are trying to promote.In establishing the nature of link building services that the agency will be offering you should specifically seek to ascertain what types of links they intend to integrate into your site.

This is caused by the fact that they are different types of links and not every type might be suited for your site. In addition to ascertaining the type of links, it is also important to ascertain the number of links that the agency intends to build each and every month.

This should help you budget for the SEO services properly.

Most agencies usually outsource the actual SEO work. In light of this fact, it is important to have a direct communication with the individual doing the work.

It is thus important to have a one on one conversation with the person doing the work so that it is possible for one to air their concerns directly to the person working on the site optimisation. It also important to note that some agencies usually have account managers that are involved in direct communication with the clients and as such, clients might not have an opportunity to directly communicate with the person undertaking the optimisation task unless they specifically request the agency to do so.

Here at MediaOne you will be assigned the following personnel who will take care of your every campaign aspect:

  • Digital Marketing Consultant (primary point of contact)
  • SEO Consultant (Manager)
  • Assistant SEO Consultant
  • Project Manager

Most often than not, SEO agencies in Singapore deploy a team of experts to undertake various optimisation tasks especially large tasks. In such a scenario, each member of the team is usually assigned different aspects of the entire SEO process and this is mainly meant to ensure that the entire process is conducted in a speedy fashion and also in a manner that will enhance the overall efficiency of the entire team.

In such a scenario, you should request to meet the entire team that is working on your website with a view of establishing what task each and every member of the team will be undertaking at any one particular time. By doing this, you will be in a position to establish who to go to in case there are issues that you to have addressed in future.

With MediaOne, you will be contacted by our team shortly after confirmation with proper introductions on how your campaign is to be carried out.

It is important to find out which modalities the SEO agency will use while optimising the content.

One of the main functions of any SEO initiative is the actually process of optimising the content. Content optimisation simply means revamping the content so that it can easily be tracked by search engines.

There are several aspects of content optimisation that you must establish with respect to the Singapore SEO agency you intend to work with. Some of the issues that you must establish include whether or not the agency intends to create a new copy of your content or opt to work with the content that you already have in place.

In addition to that, you should also seek to know whether or not the agency will develop new landing page. Finally, you should establish other aspects regarding the modalities that the agency will use.

For MediaOne we will show you how we optimise your website structure, meta data, content and fix errors for site. We will also provide you with full 24×7 ranking tools to show you how we are optimising your link profile and improving your keyword rankings.

We will send you regular reports of all changes that we implement on your website. We will also give send you a weekly backlinks report detailing the number of backlinks that your site has received throughout the week.

Yes, we take pride in being among the top SEO agencies that are known for complying with all Google best practices. This aspect has helped us to ensure that our clients get ultimate results from every campaign.

Note that Google implements more than 500 algorithm updates per year and all of them are geared towards improving user engagement.

We have a set of automated and manual tools that help us to process information accurately and within a short period such as Ahrefs, Semrush, Majestic. This helps save our clients and agency time and money. All the tools that we use are legit and have the capacity of ensuring that your internet marketing campaigns are a success.

We will carry out on-site SEO, off-site SEO, and technical SEO. All these processes will help create a fully functional website that is user-friendly, responsive, and in line with all the set search engine regulations.

Singapore SEO agencies just like agencies in other parts of the world work with clients that are distributed all over the country.

This therefore implies that it is possible for one to find that the agency that they are working with is also performing a similar function for or two of their competitors.

The main reason why one should work with their competitors is the fact that such a scenario might present serious conflict of interest issues that can ultimately have a significant impact on the overall product.

For instance, the agency in questions might be offering superior services to your competitors based on the amount they are able to pay and as such, you should seek to ensure that the quality of service offered to you matches that which is offered to your competitors.

For MediaOne we limit 3 same keywords to only 3 clients at any one time to be fair.

It is also equally important to establish if the agency has had the opportunity to work with a high number of clients in the past.

Any SEO agency worth its salt should have adequate references in terms of the number of clients it has been able to successfully work for in the past. This information can easily be obtained from third party organizations but it is also advisable that you try to get the information directly from the agency that you intend to work with.

In obtaining information regarding the number of clients that agency has worked with in the past, it is important to ascertain the nature of the clients in question. This is because, in case the agency has been able to work with reputable organizations in the past, then this is an indicator that the company might actually be good at what it does.

For MediaOne we have worked with an excess of 800 over clients locally and internationally, from GLCs, MNCs to SMEs and sole-proprietorships. We are able to tailor solutions for each size and requirement.

Yes we would probably have worked with or are working with one of your competitors and that is normal since we are a popular service. However you can be assured that our service comes with experience and complete confidentiality. That means you will benefit from our experience working on your competitor’s campaign while your campaign objectives are kept secret.

The task of search engine optimisation is quite engaging and the SEO agency will definitely require you to meet regularly with them.

The main objective of these meetings is to establish your exact needs that will enable the agency have a clear understanding of your overall expectations.

Be that as it may, such meetings will definitely interfere with your day to day schedule and therefore, it is important to have an estimate regarding the number of times that the firm intends to meet. The client should therefore seek to know how many times per week they will be required to meet with the agency and thus make advance arrangements and adjustments to their schedule with a view of accommodating the agency.

This will go a long way in ensuring that whatever the meeting schedule, you are not inconvenienced as a client and at the same time you do not inconvenience the SEO agency in question.

For MediaOne we usually meet a client a few times in order to scope out his requirements and customise a solution that will fit his budget and requirements.

After which we usually correspond via email and telephone because the ranking results will show for it self. Face to face meetings may be required for large customised SEO programmes.

Over the years, we have worked smart to come up with a payment structure that is affordable and convenient for all our customers.

The budget is based on the specific things that will be done on your site. Once we evaluate your site, we will generate an overall budget that will help you plan.

We will also agree on the payment structure to ensure that we are on the same page from the word go.

MediaOne has a few payment plans – please discuss with our friendly Digital Marketing Consultants today!

Keywords refer to those terms that are included in a website and whose main function is to facilitate the identification of the website on the World Wide Web.

It is therefore important to ascertain the exact number of keywords that the Singapore based SEO agency will be tracking. MediaOne usually tracks 10 to 20 keywords but this is not adequate especially for much larger websites – we are currently tracking 50, 100 over keywords for major clients.

It is advisable to identify an agency that can track between 20 to 50 keywords per campaign at least. This is due to the fact that most websites usually have much larger content and an agency that can only track less than 20 keywords will definitely be inadequate for many websites that feature larger amounts of content.

One of the most important aspects when it comes to keyword selection is that the keywords should be tailored to reflect the nature of your website. This is because Google is able to track superimposed keywords and drop those sites that embed such keywords simply for the purpose of improving their rankings.

In addition to that, it is also important to note that the keyword that is used is one that encourages conversation and not one that simply seeks to attract traffic.

Your MediaOne consultant will provide you with a well research list for you to choose from.

SEO Services

what are seo services

SEO services are performed by qualified SEO agencies and SEO-trained personnel to help websites rank up on search engines.

SEO services include keyword research, onpage & offpage optimisation, website audit & fixes, content, link building, SERP ranking, SEO consultation & reports.

Resources To Help You Understand More About SEO Services

You might be new to search engine optimisation (SEO) so we have prepared more information so that you can see for yourself how it really works:

SEO is the process of improving your website’s structure and content to attract more organic traffic. The majority of these new visitors usually come from search engines, hence the name SEO.

Although starting might pose a challenge, SEO has great results in the long run. But, how does it work? To succeed in SEO, you have to optimise your content such that it resonates with your target audience. Make sure that you invest in keyword research, as this is the number one ranking factor for most search engines.

Besides content, search engines also your website’s usability. If your website is easy to use, you are likely to rank higher on search engine result pages.

What Are The Most Important Things I Need To Know About SEO?

Learning SEO yourself isn’t demanding, nor is expensive. With a reliable internet connection, you can learn as much as you want. Although it’s an option, you don’t have to pay to be proficient at search engine optimisation.

Here are the steps you need to follow to become a master at SEO.

Understand the objectives of SEO

While every business has its unique objectives, all desire to make more sales and get more people to their client base. By investing in SEO, your site ranks higher on search engine results pages, meaning that you get more organic traffic.

However, you need to know how search engines work before you improve your site rank. Google and other search engines have software called spiders that crawl websites to find and index their content. When a user types a search query, the search engine returns relevant content.

It’s worth noting that your site won’t be visible in search results if it isn’t indexed. If you want your site indexed, you can request Google through their URL Inspection Tool.

Identify UX Signals

Search engines aim to provide the most relevant results to users, meaning that user experience (UX) is vital to your SEO campaign. Whenever you modify your site ensure that you prioritize users so that its design, functionality, and contents suit their needs.

Algorithms like Google’s RankBrain analyse user behaviour to know the type of content they like. This works through machine learning and provides details on the patterned practices of users.

The organic click-through rate (CTR), which is the percentage of searchers who click on a particular search engine result, is a metric that Google uses to analyse user experience. It is useful for evaluating the relevance and appeal of a website’s content compared to others.

Another signal used for measuring user experience is dwell time, which is how long someone stays on a page before returning to the SERP, which is also significant to search engines. It has an impact on your SEO rank.

Depending on the type of search query, a longer dwell time shows that a user is interested in your offerings or has trouble finding what they were after. You can use the search term to find out what of the two is more accurate.

These metrics reflect give you a clear picture of your SEO campaign as you make adjustments and seek to optimise. It’s crucial to pay attention to UX signals if you want to rank higher on search results.

Invest in Keyword Research

You can’t succeed in SEO without keyword research. When you include the search queries that people use frequently, you are more likely to rank higher in search results.

The two types of keywords are long-tail phrases and short terms. Of these, the former is more effective at driving traffic to your website. For instance, if a person searches for ‘’best shops for mobile phones’’, they are likely to get detailed results than another who searches for ‘’mobile phones’’.

The best way to know the keywords that relate to your industry is by investing in automation tools. These platforms can also help you find out what keywords your competitors are using, ensuring that you always stay at the top of the game.

Differentiate On-page and Off-page SEO

Optimising your web pages and content isn’t enough to get you to the first page of search results. You must have a sound off-page optimisation strategy.

On-page SEO is all about creating valuable content and making your website easy to use. On the other hand, off-page SEO depends on others’ opinions about your website. To excel at it, you need authority sites to reference your content, as well as get several mentions, likes and shares from social media platforms.

Invest in Link Building

Link building is among the top ranking factors on Google, the world’s most popular search engine. When authority sites refer to your content, it shows to search engines and internet users that it’s relevant and valuable.

There are several ways to build links, you can request mentions from top sites or publish guest posts. Alternatively, you can build a social media presence.

What are some of the Most Important SEO Blogs I Should Follow?

Whether you’re an expert or a beginner, you need occasional advice on how to improve your SEO campaign. One way you can do this is by reading the best blogs on the subject.

 These include:

What Are Some Benefits of SEO?

The most obvious benefit of SEO is increased visibility in search engine result pages. This benefit has several other positive effects, the best of which is increased traffic to your website. When more people visit your website, you are more likely to record increased sales.

Investing in your site also improves site authority. This means that internet users are more likely to trust your content and brand at large.

Does SEO Lead to More Traffic and Sales?

Yes, it does. As mentioned above, optimising your site improves your rank on search results. Since most users click on the results on the first page, you are likely to get more visitors, which in most cases results to increased conversion rates and sales.

What is the most important Google Ranking Factors?

 The most important ranking factors are:

  • Content – Google will rank your website first if you provide valuable content.
  • Site optimisation – besides content, your site must also be easy to use.
  • Links – linking to authoritative sites improve your site’s credibility.

What are Some Google Penalties?

Content is Google’s most vital ranking factor. Thus, providing inaccurate of offensive content usually results in penalties. Your site might get de-indexed, meaning that it won’t be visible in search results. Keyword stuffing and other malpractices can also lead to de-indexing.

What are On-page Best Practices?

On-page best practices entail improving your content and website’s structure. Ensure that you provide quality, relevant, timely, and accurate content. While doing this, remember to build a site that is easy to navigate and has a user-friendly interface.

What are Off-page Best Practices?

Off-page optimisation is about getting other sites, especially the authorities in your niche, to link to your content. You can achieve it through guest blogging or actively reaching to authority figures to backlink to your site.

What are Content SEO Best Practices?

Content SEO involves providing posts that is relevant to your target audience. To achieve this, you must invest in keyword research. More importantly, know what’s trending and the pain points of your customers.

What are Local SEO Best Practices?

Local SEO focuses on targeting potential customers living within your business’s locality. It starts with creating a Google my Business profile, where you provide your physical address, operation hours and contact information. You can also get more people by including relevant information in your ad copy.

What Are Some International SEO Best Practices?

International SEO needs you to focus your content and optimisation on a broader audience. This means more time invested into keyword research, as the needs of people living in other countries are different from those living in your locale.

How Does Keyword Research Help SEO?

Keyword research is undoubtedly the cornerstone of a successful SEO campaign. When you know what your target audience types into search engines, you create content that they find interesting. This, in turn, translates into higher conversion rates, and potentially, more sales.

What are Some Common Link Building Techniques

The most common link-building techniques are cold pitching and guest posting.

Cold pitching is an approach where you send requests to authority sites in your niche. If they accept your request, they link the bank to relevant content posted on your site. This way, you gain more credibility in search engines’ eyes.

On the other hand, guest posting is where you post your content on authority sites, such as Forbes,, and Medium. Because these platforms usually have a huge following, including a backlink to your site in the content you post can increase the traffic to your site.

What Are Some Common SEO Strategies?

Here is a list of the most effective SEO strategies:

  • Competition Analysis: it’s essential to know what tactics your competitors are using, as this helps you develop better strategies.
  • Keyword research: when you include what your audience wants in you content, you are likely to get more visitors to your site.
  • Targeting: to improve the effectiveness of your SEO, target specific audiences. For instance, you might optimise for specific gender, age, income range, etc.

Why Should I Hire an SEO Agency or Expert?

From a layperson’s perspective, SEO seems simple. After all, what’s difficult about optimising your content and site structure? In reality, it’s much more complicated. That’s why you need to hire an agency or an expert.

Enlisting the services of a professional can help take your business to greater heights, as they have the experience and knowledge needed to succeed in the industry. More importantly, they have an in-depth understanding of Google’s and other search engines’ algorithms, giving you a better chance of ranking higher on search results.

What are Some of the Best SEO Tools I Can Use?

Like other marketing strategies, SEO needs automation for better results. Here are some platforms you can use to boost your campaign.

  • SEMrush: This is useful for keyword research and competitive analysis. It also shows you how competitive particular keywords are and their relevance to your online business.
  • Google Analytics: this helps you analyse the progress of your SEO campaign. Precisely, it shows you where most of your traffic comes from, the most relevant keywords, and so on. It also offers suggestions on how to improve your website for better results.

How Much Should I Budget on SEO?

The amount of money you spend on search engine optimisation depends on the size of your business and your objectives. If you want faster results, you might want to invest in automation tools, and this requires paying more money than people using organic methods.

Normally, SEO takes at least six months to start showing results.  When incorporated with other digital marketing strategies, such as social media and email marketing, the results might be faster.

What Are Some Trends in SEO?

The digital marketing industry is ever-changing, and so is SEO. What worked before may not work in the future. The best way to stay ahead of your rivals is by keeping up with the latest trends, such as:

  • Voice Search: with the increased use of smartphones, voice search is becoming more popular. For instance, Android smartphones come with an inbuilt digital assistant that allows you to search the internet by simply talking.
  • Search Intent: this is what a user is after when they visit a search engine. In the future, you’ll need to create content optimised for getting users to the end of the sales funnel.
  • Content Depth: ensure that your target knows as much as possible about your business. Despite the busy nature of today’s lives, people are looking for more information, more than ever. Sites with comprehensive content tend to have more traffic.
  • Automation: investing in automation tools is a no-brainer – they help you save time, and more importantly, they are useful for creating better content.
  • Local Search: Google recently started prioritising local news in search results, an indicator that local SEO is here to stay.

SEO 2022 – Comprehensive Marketing Trends and Tips

2022 will be a huge turning point for SEO. It will be a year of change and no change for SEO.

You probably haven’t noticed, but Google hasn’t fully unleashed all of its capabilities yet. SEO has just started to see big algorithm updates that they have been working on for years.

It’s like an overhaul that doesn’t change anything but adds layers of perfection to the existing structure.

It turns out Google doesn’t want you to over-optimize anything. They don’t want you to get too creative with your content, and they certainly don’t want you to get carried away with SEO anymore.

The best SEO in the world right now isn’t done by optimizing content. It’s done by creating as much high-value content as possible.

Google wants you to produce tons of high-quality material for your niche, and they’ll do the rest.

You no longer need to make a huge effort with SEO. Google will take care of it.

Google’s algorithms are getting more and more complex, but at the same time, they’re also becoming more common sense. It will be like Google is checking on your site every second of each day, just to make sure that all is well.

Trend 1: Online Shopping

Big brands have to catch up.

They’re going to have to make sure that their products and services are well presented online. They will be forced to provide video tutorials for individual products, price comparisons, and discounts galore.

The number of digital buyers is expected to hit 2.1 billion people by the end of 2021, up from 1.66 billion in 2016.

That’s nearly a third (27.8%) of the world’s population.

In 2021, online shopping sales are predicted to reach $4.89 trillion. That’s more than double the amount that was spent in 2015.

This will lead to a huge shift of interest from traditional physical stores to digital e-commerce shops and marketplaces.

It also means a new breed of consumers with little or no real-world shopping experience.

So, what does this mean for SEOs?

Google is shifting towards creating a more seamless online shopping experience. Retailers can now list their products on Google shopping for free — no commissions or any other fees.

That means Google is making space for retailers, eliminating the struggle for expensive premium listings.

To top it off, they introduced the shopping graph, which helps sellers put their products in front of more buyers, and buyers find the right products.

The shopping graph is AI-enhanced. Meaning it can understand different types of products and brands. It can also analyse their relationships with other products to improve relevance.

As a result, shopping results are now showing far more product content than just titles and prices. You can expect to see star ratings, availability estimates, and full product descriptions in the future.

The shopping graph is also integrated into the Google search engine. That means that products will appear in your results, depending on how relevant it is to your search.

Google shopping puts a lot of emphasis on the following information:

  • Your website
  • Product prices
  • Reviews
  • Videos
  • Inventory data and SKU

Using this information, Google will deliver the most relevant search results and product pages in real-time, and that’s just part of the generated shopping experience.

Even better, Google has also implemented a new feature that allows users to run their search queries using screenshots. If someone sees a product they like, they can use Google Lens to search for it on the internet.

For example, let’s say you see a friend with a shoe you like. You can just take a screenshot and search for that shoe on Google.

Google will identify the shoe and give you similar options on where to buy it.

How to Optimize Your Site for this Trend in 2022

Learn to create keyword-rich product listings. Google will use the information you provide to determine your product’s relevancy to the queried search. For e-commerce sites, instead of optimizing your entire site for product keywords, focus on individual products.

Go through your products and focus on optimizing them individually. Include lots of images, videos, and descriptions to provide shoppers with a rich information environment.

Be sure also to reference other products in your listings to draw a relationship between them.

Modern SEOs need to look into the future and start building their brands, not just content.

Trend 2: Conversational Queries

Next up is conversational search.  In 2022, people will search for information naturally. They’ll ask questions, and Google will understand what they’re asking.

Google’s algorithms are getting better all the time. With conversational queries, you can ask follow-up questions to get more info about a product or service. It will even anticipate your question and offer answers.

Let’s say you’re on the phone with a customer support rep, and they’re helping you find something. You’ll just ask Google: “How does this work” and it will pull up the information on the product, so you can see how it works. That is especially helpful in services like real estate or insurance where people need more information.

Around May (2021), they launched LaMDA (short for Language Model Dialogue Application), a machine learning model built for dialogue. It’s an open-source neural network architecture recently invented by Google, and it’s changing the way people interact with search engines.

The model is based on the concept of memory networks which has grown in popularity. It uses short-term memory — known as working memory — to facilitate deeper dialogue, so Google can understand complex questions and generate more accurate answers.

How to Optimize Your Site for this Trend in 2022

Simple, start optimizing your site for voice search.  Also, think about how you engage with customers in your business. Create a friendly conversation where they feel at ease asking questions.

Also, consider creating FAQ pages for your products to give people the information they need before reaching out to customer support.  Updating your blog with voice search optimized posts will help too.

Voice search focuses on Natural Language Processing (NLP) to interpret the user’s intent. It’s more complicated than a keyword search and requires a more human-like understanding of language. NLP is already prevalent in smartphones, home assistants, and voice assistants like Siri and Alexa.

Here’s how you optimize your site for voice search:

  • Targeting Phrases: The way users phrase typed queries isn’t the same as how they phrase verbal queries. For instance, a user can type “the best digital marketing agency in Singapore,” but verbally, they’ll search “what’s the best digital marketing agency in Singapore.” Optimizing for verbal phrases is the best way to target conversation keywords.
  • Keeping Answers Short: Hit the nail on the head by focusing on simple answers. Your content should have a short blurb where you directly dive into the question and provide an answer and more detailed coverage in the content that follows.
  • Consider Vernacular: Different regions have different dialects, so consider these when optimizing your site. Focus on words that are specific to where you’re targeting. For instance, dialects in Portugal make use of words like “seguranca” (security), while Spain prefers “Seguridad.” These small localization changes can help you rank better.

Trend 3: The Rise of Visual Search

Visual search is the cover that no one wants to leave out.

Voice assistants like Siri, Alexa, and Google Home are driving the trend. These devices have image recognition capabilities that allow them to receive images from users using terms like “What does X look like?” or “How can I style my hair like this?” Then they deliver results by recognizing the object in the picture.

Also, according to Invespcro, more than 36% of online shoppers say they have used visual search. It’s also predicted that within the next couple of years, visual search will dominate mobile commerce.

In fact, more than half of users say they find visual search more beneficial to them than text queries.

As the technology progresses, visual search will become even more accurate. Currently, visual search can only recognize simple images like plants, machines, and books. But in the future, it will be able to identify people’s faces and discern objects by comparing them with other product images.

How to Prepare Your Site for Visual Search

Make the most of your images. When you upload pictures to your website, consider optimizing them with SEO basics like naming and alt-text.

Tag Products in Photos: When people search by image, they want their results to be more precise. Tagging products in photos will help Google place better results on relevant pages and rank them higher.

Use Geotagging: Take advantage of Google’s business pages and add geotagged photos for products with specific attributes, like size, colour, or shape. Also, consider including them in customer reviews.

Trend 4: Video Marketing

Even with the surge in visual search, videos are still one of the best ways people can learn about your products. Video marketing is also vital to highlighting your business’s culture and giving customers personal insight into what you do.

More than half of consumers say they rely on videos to make purchase decisions, and approximately 1/3 of people are more likely to buy the product after watching a related video.

Along with YouTube videos, users can also search “How to” keywords on other platforms, like Facebook or Twitter. For instance, if you own a health supplement company, one of your videos might show how to take the supplement correctly.

Additionally, Google is rolling out new features that allow users to find information quickly using videos. Here are a few of the features:

  • Clip Markup: You can markup specific points in a video to provide users with specific information about the content. This way, they can pull up your video on YouTube and open it directly to the part where you discuss product features or benefits.
  • Seek Markup: Seek markup informs Google about the URL structure of your video. That way, Google can display key moments of the video. Using machine learning, Google can automatically examine your video and segment its content.

While you don’t necessarily need to add SeekToAction properties, you can still use them to help Google understand your URL structure better and direct users to the most relevant parts of your video.

How to Optimize Your Site for this SEO Trend in 2022

Simple, start by incorporating more videos into your site content. If you already have videos, consider using the markup tools mentioned above.

Keep your video content short and to the point. Don’t waste people’s time – get right into what they’re there for!

Spend some time brainstorming questions that people might have about your product, then answer them with a video on one of your landing pages.

As for the Seek Markup and Clip Markup, you want to make sure you’re using detailed, keyword-rich markups.  These will direct users to the most relevant portions of your video and help Google understand your video context better.

For example, if you have a video on money-saving tips, you do not want to label your markups as tip 1, tip 2, etc.  Instead, you want specific keywords to reflect the steps of your video.

For instance:

Markup 1: “How do I save money on groceries?”

Markup 2: “Turn off lights when you leave a room!”

Trend 5: Answering Complex Queries

Google will focus on answering complex questions come 2022.

We’re used to them providing direct answers for simple questions like:

  • Where can I find a good cup of coffee near me?
  • What is the Best Cell Phone Data Plan (2GB, Unlimited)?
  • When does Starbucks open and close?

Now, they’ll start providing more complex answers as well.

For example:

  • What’s the cheapest way to fly from New York to Seattle?
  • What should I bring to an interview?
  • Who should hire me?

Keep in mind that these are not direct answers, but rather Google providing multiple resources for users to learn from. The goal is to supply them with all the information they need in one place.

For that reason, Google introduced MUM (Multi-task Unified Model), an AI-driven model that minimizes the steps that users have to take to find the information they need.

For example, say you’re planning for a trip to Singapore. They may issue separate results for flight schedules, hotels, attractions, and food. MUM will provide you with the relevant information only instead of querying everything related to the keyword.

They may issue queries like:

  • Best hotels in Singapore
  • Cheapest flights to Singapore
  • Discounts on parks in Singapore
  • Weather for Singapore
  • Top places to visit in Singapore

Users need all this information to plan their trips. The problem is that they have to run multiple, separate queries and sort through the results to find what they need.  With MUM, everything will be in one place.

If you’re a site owner, this means that your content should cover all major types of queries. For example, if you have a travel blog, make sure it’s got information about flights, hotels, food recommendations, and travel tips.

MUM is an algorithm update that considers the user’s intent and prioritizes the information they need. It also learns from users and personalizes results based on their needs.

How to Optimize Your Site for this SEO Trend in 2022

Start creating content that fully answers complex queries. Focus on providing useful content rather than just links to more information.

Try to be as comprehensive as you can, tackling multiple queries in a single article, blog post, or piece of content.

For example, if you’re writing about travel tips for Singapore – include information on flights, hotels, attractions, and food recommendations. Focus on giving your user everything they need to plan their trip in one place.

The point is to try and create content that prevents the users from going elsewhere to look for more information. Do your research and make sure you have everything the user needs to make an informed decision.

Trend 6: Core Web Vitals

Google’s core web vitals is an algorithm update that focuses on site speed, mobile-friendliness, and page load speed. It was first released in May 2020.

The name refers to the core metrics that Google will monitor for a website: loading speed, mobile compatibility, and page size. They’re all directly related to the user’s experience.

According to Google, if your site or page loads in more than 3 seconds, 53% of users will abandon it. Google wants you to know that site speed matters. That’s why they’re on a mission to make mobile pages load faster, regardless of the device used.

That said, here are three core web vitals to focus on in 2022:

  • First Content Paint (FCP): This is the time it takes for a page to display its first bit of content. The point here is to make sure that your pages load with the most relevant information right away.
  • First Input Delay (FID): This is the time it takes from when a user clicks or interacts with an element until that action is shown on the screen. In other words, this is the time between a click and when something happens in response to that click.
  • First Meaningful Paint (FMP): This metric measures how much meaningful content is displayed within your site. Google wants your pages to load as quickly as possible. So, if you can display at least 50 meaningful pixels in under 1 second, then you’re on the right track.
  • Cumulative Layout Shifts (CYS): These metric measures page layout changes over time. It’s used to identify when the layout of a page or site has changed, which is an indicator that it may be done improperly.
  • First Interactive Element (FIE): This metric measures how long it takes for a web page to become interactive and respond to user interactions and actions.

How to Optimize Your Site for this SEO Trend in 2022

Make sure your site loads in less than 3 seconds, ideally less than 2.

Page load speed matters. You should measure the performance of your pages via Google’s Lighthouse and Web Page Test tools.

You can also use speed racer tools to see how quickly your site loads against your competitors’ sites.

You can improve your site speed by:

  • Minifying JavaScript and CSS files
  • Optimizing images (compression, file size, etc.)
  • Removing unnecessary plug-ins or widgets
  • Using a content delivery network
  • Reduce the number of HTTP requests for your site’s assets by bundling them together. Optimize your HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to load as quickly as possible
  • Upgrading your hosting to a web hosting plan that is optimized for speed

12 SEO Tips for 2022

If you’ve been following the latest SEO trends, then you should be.

If not, now is a good time to start.

In 2022, these are the core SEO strategies that will give you an edge:

  1. First-party Data Hub with SEO Traffic

With companies like Google pushing to retire third-party cookies, there is a growing emphasis on first-party data.

First-party data refers to the information you collect about visitors who interact with your sites, such as email addresses or purchase history. That way, you don’t have to rely on tracking pixels or cookies.

Search plays a big part in this.

With Google evolving into an AI, its search results will be more personalized. To stay ahead of the trends, you need to create your own data hub on your website connected to your SEO strategy.

With SEO, you can attract qualified visitors to your site, after which you want to nurture them into leads and eventually customers through email newsletters, remarketing, and more.

Creating a first-party data hub is essential, as you want to connect your different marketing channels and build your brand.

If you want to increase the ROI of your business by 2022, then make sure that all of your tools are connected via one central platform.

  1. Refreshing Existing Content

In 2022, the most successful businesses will be those that constantly refresh their content.

This is a big deal for SEO. If you want to stay relevant to Google’s algorithms, you need to continue refreshing your website’s content.

That’s because refreshing old content, especially those published two or more years ago, helps revive it.

Refreshing your content also means making the necessary changes that the internet requires over time by incorporating new video formats, images, and other features.

Most importantly, it means creating fresh content in line with the latest trends in search engines, including voice searches.

  1. Personalized Search Results

As we’ve mentioned before, personalized search results have been on the rise and will continue to be in 2022.

This is primarily due to the increasing use of AI by search engines.

What does that mean for your SEO strategy?

It helps to focus on creating content relevant to your target audience: use demographic data, customer personas, and psychographics to inform your content creation.

  1. Outbound Links to Relevance

By 2022, there will be a significant shift in the number of outbound links search engines use to rank websites.

It all boils down to relevance.

Search engines will focus on giving users results that are more relevant and useful.

If you want your site to be relevant, you need to link to other relevant sites.

This is especially important for authority websites or site with large followings online—the more reputable the link, the better.

  1. SEO Will be Integrated into Customer Service

In 2022, there will be an increase in businesses that use SEO as a customer service tool.

SEO can be used to provide instant updates on topics related to your business. That means developing resources that are easily discoverable by customers.

A prime example is how some companies are incorporating SEO into their FAQs.

By adding keywords and information about your products or services, you can make it easier for customers to find what they’re looking for.

  1. Increased Use of Voice Searches

Voice search is on the rise, and by 2022 it will be the primary way people search for information online.

If you want your website to be successful in the future, then you need to start focusing on optimizing your content for voice searches.

You can do this by using long-tail keywords, natural language, and FAQs.

  1. Optimize for Different Search Media

Text will always be the dominant search medium in 2022.

However, there will also be an increase in image searches and voice-activated assistants, including smart speakers such as Google Home or Amazon Alexa.

What does that mean for your SEO strategy?

To stay relevant, you need to optimize your site’s content for both text and images.

Make sure users can search using their voices or images.

If you haven’t already, start incorporating long-tail keywords into your website’s content and optimize it for visual search.

  1. SEO Will be More Targeted Towards Specific Industries

SEO is no longer an industry-wide strategy.

By 2022, it will be more focused on specific industries and niches.

This is because different industries require different strategies to rank high in search engines.

What does that mean for your business?

You need to start focusing on niche-specific SEO tactics.

You can do this using long-tail keyword, developing customer personas, optimizing for local SEO, and using SEO tools specifically designed for your industry.

  1. Greater Use of Artificial Intelligence

By 2022, AI will be used extensively by search engines to deliver better results to users.

What does that mean for your SEO strategy?

SEO will become more personalized.

Meaning should start focusing on creating personalized content tailored to the individual needs of your site visitors.

Start using demographic data, customizing your messages for different personas, creating FAQs, writing comprehensive blog posts (covering everything the user needs), providing instant updates, and more.

  1. Focus on User Search Intent, Not Keywords

In the past, SEO was all about using the right keywords to rank high in search engines.

However, this is no longer the case.

By 2022, user search intent will be the primary focus of SEO.

What does that mean for your business?

Always wear your customer’s mind, and focus on creating content relevant to their needs and interests.

This can be done by understanding what they’re looking for, using long-tail keywords, and providing valuable information that meets their needs.

Be sure to cover everything you suspect your searchers might want the answer to before they even think to ask.

Leave no room for doubt that your content will answer their question and resolve their concern.

So, how do you meet users’ search intent?

You can start by looking at what’s already ranking for your search term. For example, if you’re targeting the keyword “planning a trip,” go to the search results and analyse the sites already ranking for it.

Then, try to understand why those websites are ranking high.

    • What type of content do they have?
    • What kind of keywords are they using?
    • What are their tone and approach?

Once you have a good understanding of what it takes to rank for the keyword, you can build your site’s content around it.

  1. Build Dynamic Evergreen Content

In the long term, you want to build content that is evergreen.

By this, we mean content that is relevant and provides value for a long time. Evergreen content does not become outdated because it’s constantly updated and maintained.

What does that mean for your SEO strategy?

You need to focus on building high-quality dynamic content that is relevant for years on end.

Think about critical topics in your industry and start creating comprehensive content around them.

Don’t be afraid to go in-depth and provide valuable information that your audience will appreciate.

You can start by listing down all the questions and concerns your customers have and then address them one by one in your content.

For instance, if you run a liquor shop, then here are some of the questions that people might have:

    • How many types of liquor are there?
    • What is the difference between vodka and gin?
    • What is the best way to serve a martini?

By answering these and other questions, you’re providing value to your readers and creating high-quality content that’s relevant for years on end.

  1. Optimizing for Google Discover

Google Discover is an advanced search engine that provides users with personalized recommendations.

It’s now one of the most popular Google features, ranking right behind organic search results and Google Ads.

What does this mean for your SEO strategy?

One key element of SEO in 2022 will be optimizing for Google Discover.

This means adding visuals to your content since this feed uses visuals when displaying content to users. So, make sure you have a cover photo to accompany your article.

You also want to make sure you’re creating targeted content that caters to your specific audience.

2022 is just around the corner, so it’s time to start gearing up for these changes.

We hope this guide has been helpful and given you a good understanding of what you need to do to stay ahead of the curve.
