    So as the year comes to a close, what is going to be your strategy for 2017 SEO,
    how are you going to optimise for Semantic Search (voice search), and other markups that Google wants to see.

    Early on in 2016 Search Engine Journal wrote an good article on Semantic Search. https://www.searchenginejournal.com/seo-101-semantic-search-care/119760/
    I've just started reading a book on it
    " SEO Help: 20 Semantic Search Optimization Steps That Will Help Your Business Grow by David Amerland " you can find more on the book at the authors website. http://davidamerland.com/seo-help-the-book.html

    If you haven't spent some time digging into google for some clues, Google likes hiding useful information in seperate locations here's three locations worth bookmarking and doing the reading.
    Learn all things Search
    Learn how you should markup the Web
    Learn how to Optimise

    What's going to be your strategy?

    Search is evolving
    Google is going to kill search

    beyond ten blue links
    with just AdWords

    to bring your content
    so you can give money

    to people

    to Google

    in much richer and faster ways.
    making Google richer faster

    I don't think google will kill search, that is their business. But yes, Google is getting to big to be good forever. They are definitely working towards becoming a monopoly of the world.

    I have no idea what you are trying to say here Tim? Feeling out of place by not knowing the episode, I went and watched it, and I still have no idea how to respond to you?

    The voice search numbers are growing, none of the platforms will disclose the percentage, but I'm guessing it's bigger than what we think.

    When voice search works it's slick, I've found is that it takes a lot of getting used to, more than the tech not working.
