We are seeing a a shift in search technology, search behavior and how we interact with content. This requires a new way to look at inbound and content marketing. You need to take a more strategic and holistic approach by focusing on the topics themselves, not just the links and keywords which relate to the topic. Early adopters of topic clusters have seen their inbound traffic improve by 40-50%.
We are seeing a shift in search technology, search behavior, and how we interact with content.
Our search behavior has changed the last few years. Content is everywhere, but a lot of it has poor quality. We therefore use longer search queries to find the best results. Google has also reported that 20% of search queries on mobile devices are voice searches, - this is usually sentences or multiple words. A study conducted by Ahrefs of search volume by keyword length, found 64% of searches are four words or more.
