Looking at these stats all we can say is Local Voice Search, Be Prepared!
Near Me SEO Strategy
500% + growth in “near me” mobile searches that contain a variant of “can I buy” or “to buy” over the last two years. (Google Search Stats), Therefore “near me” is no longer just about finding a specific place. It’s now about finding a specific thing, in a specific area, and in a specific period of time. Local businesses take note and do not ignore this gold mine of opportunity
Featured Snippet & Rich Text
There may be many snippets, however, the one that really counts is rich snippet. This allows users to see the most relevant information on the search page itself
Do not neglect the power of convenience. If your website does not offer convenience for the user to find data or navigate to what they want they will simply leave your website. So a well executed user experience will ensure great results and go a long way in bringing scores of new visitors to your landing pages
