New trend in SEO (2)

A few days ago, I wrote about a new trend in SEO which is Zero-click searches. It’s interesting because it’s a direction that Google is taking. Google wants to make it easy for users, but not necessarily easy for marketers.

The second interesting trend is more about the focus on contextual search. Google has developed technology that tries to interpret the intent behind how people search. They call it “BERT = Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers“. It is Google’s latest algorithm update. Its focus is to deliver results based on real search intent, considering context and natural language.

All marketers need to do is to publish high quality content that could actually answer customer’s questions. This will help with optimising for user intent and giving the most complete answer — which is what Google wants.
