Just when you thought your content strategy was set, virtual assistants have given rise to a new, faster way to find information.

One of the biggest trends today? Local voice search. Google® has shared that phrases including the words “near me” are growing 146% year over year.

If your business is ready for voice search, keep these few tips in mind as you optimize your site content:

#1. Make sure your Google My Business™ is up to date.

#2. Ensure your name, address and phone number are consistent across your site and in your listings.

And #3. Ask for reviews. Positive reviews help you rank higher in local search.
