Clearly showing that SEO as we know it is heading more and more towards voice search, simply to ensure that customers can find what they are in need of faster and easier. Then there is Alexa, which is taking over household after household giving people a quick and easy way to schedule in meetings, order products online and play music when you just want to relax at the end of a long working day.
