New Year, New Search Trends: What’s in Store for Your Business SEO in 2021?

2021 brings cautious optimism for many businesses, and with a new year comes new search trends. 

2020 showed us the necessity of pivoting our businesses for the better, adding more value and delving more into online offerings. 2021 will be the continuous improvements of last year’s marketing efforts. 

As a Perth digital marketing agency, we don’t have a crystal ball into what 2021 will bring for local, national and international businesses. But we do have insights, inklings if you may.

UX and SEO set to be more harmonious than ever 

User experience (UX) and search engine optimisation (SEO) will be more harmonious than ever. 

In May 2020, Google stated that they will be taking ‘page experience’ into account in their search rankings. 

What does this mean? 

Essentially, running the Google initiative, Core Web Vitals, to assess: 

  • Webpage speed, 
  • Website responsiveness, and 
  • Visual stability. 

In 2021, it’s more important than ever to have your website enhanced for SEO and UX.

The ever-changing role of SEO 

Organic search was ‘in’ and paid search (generally) wasn’t in 2020, due to unpredicted budgeting slashes many businesses were forced to make. 

Organic SEO equates to keyword research and link building to help your website rank higher on search engines. It’s a more traditional digital marketing strategy, which made a comeback last year. 

What does this mean? 

  • With economies recovering from a global pandemic in 2021 and beyond, businesses need more affordable and cost-effective marketing strategies, such as organic SEO. 
  • In 2021, businesses should use their experiences in 2020 to readily and adapt in an instant to what their customers want.
