digital marketing on laptop

Around the turn of each year, there is always a lot of interest in digital marketing trends and marketing innovation. The year 2022 will be no different, in fact, it will be much more so, because the epidemic has put downward pressure on marketing budgets, forcing marketers to seek for new cost-effective tactics. These cutbacks are constant across sectors, and we should expect them to affect businesses of all sizes. Competition is a driving force in the digital world. And, if you want your company to succeed, you need keep up with the latest technologies and methods for enhancing your internet visibility. At Search4Local we believe that these following digital marketing trends and predictions are likely to be prolific in 2022, helping your business stand out in your industry.

Zero-Click Searches

When you have a question, you simply ask it in Google and then click on the article that best answers your query or provides you with the information you require. However, you may find the solution in a paragraph near the top of the results page. These boxes, known as Position Zero (rich snippets) in search engine results, often include an image as well as all of the information you’re looking for in one easy-to-read box. You don’t need to click on an article because you already know the answer. It is important to consider how your company may alter page titles to highlight what visitors will find when they visit your site. Being the subject of a zero-click search indicates that you’ve made it halfway and that people are interested in what you have to offer. The important factor to remember is that viewers are then likely to follow through to your website, meaning your content has to support your rich snippet and be as informative but to the point as possible. After all, content is king.

Embrace Local SEO

For local businesses, your Google My Business listing gives useful information and aids in determining your geographic location. With a Google My Business listing that includes a geographically defined service area, it’s easier to come up for “near me” searches. Customers can also learn more about your company from Google Search results. Your potential consumer will be able to check your open hours, address, and star rating left by other users at a glance. You can also use your search listing to advertise products and sales. If you haven’t claimed your Google business listing yet, you should do so immediately and maintain the information up to date.

Increasing Page Speed

A slow-loading page is the most common reason users leave a website within a minute of arriving, and even a second or two of delay in how the page loads might damage your conversion rate. You can speed up your page load speeds by optimising your images and removing any huge picture files. If there are any, reduce their size to less than 100KB.

Internal redirects, particularly redirect chains that go through numerous redirects before arriving at the correct URL, and internal connections to redirects, can also be reduced. Reducing them can improve your Google authority and page load times. We believe page speeds to be more important then ever with the increasing competition in industries and Google now prioritising user experience.

AI Powered Optimisation

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the technology behind a variety of services, including content production, chatbots, and search engines, and it has grown in popularity since the outbreak of COVID-19. We believe it to be even more prolific in 2022 with it posing many benefits.

AI can analyse consumer behaviour and search patterns, and use data from social media platforms like Instagram and blog posts to help businesses understand how customers find their products and services. Google is one such business that has placed AI at the centre of its business model. Its use of AI has helped their search engine to better grasp what consumers are looking for and what kind of material best serves their search intent over the previous few years. Google knows what consumers are looking for and what type of material will best meet their needs. Another benefit of AI is its adaptability, as its automation features are used for a variety of digital marketing platforms and we expect to see more added in 2022.

Alternatives To Third-Party Cookies

Google Chrome’s privacy efforts may have a significant impact on some aspects of marketing and advertising, while other strategies may remain mostly unchanged.

If you’re an advertiser or marketer who relies on third-party data or individual data for precise online audience targeting methods, you might be concerned about how you’ll handle this shift.

Despite the fact that some major changes are taking place, new options are also emerging. Personalisation and consumer targeting can be achieved without compromising user privacy using techniques like Google’s Privacy Sandbox or FLoC (Federated Learning of Cohorts). CRM technologies, polls, and interactive content will all become more important in the future for marketing success.
