MCKINNEY, Texas, June 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Judy's Book, owned by Advice Local, has now integrated voice search capabilities into their web profile pages to ensure that client entity data is available and visible to voice search engines and voice devices.
This is a huge market advantage for Judy's Book customers. This enables the businesses on their directory to be found via voice search by Alexa on Amazon Echo devices, Google Home, Google Assistant and Samsung's Bixby.
Statista reported earlier this year that an estimated 3.25 billion voice assistants are in use today. Based on the adoption rate of voice assistants, Statista forecasts that by 2023 the number of digital voice assistants will reach around eight billion – a number greater than the world's population.
"Voice represents a powerful marketing tool for business everywhere" said Bernadette Coleman, CEO of Advice Local. Coleman went on to say, "We are very excited about developing and deploying our voice technology solutions to help businesses worldwide. Voice provides deeper engagement opportunities than just about any other technology in our industry today."
This new voice search technology really separates Judy's Book from other online directories and web properties. Advice Local's Presence Engine automatically applies LocalBusiness Schema, Review Schema, FAQ Schema and Speakable Schema, the voice optimization markup. The businesses listed in Advice Local's technology are fortunate to have all of this applied in real time to their business' listing on Judy's Book. This powerful combination ensures businesses will get found in desktop, mobile and in voice searches.
Speakable Schema enables the web profile to share specifics about the business' listing with voice assistants. The properties of Speakable Schema identifies sections within a web profile that are best suited for audio playback using text-to-speech (TTS). Adding this markup allows search engines and other applications to identify content that can be read aloud on voice devices.
