What is semantic search?
The word semantic means ‘relating to meaning in language or logic’.
Semantic search is the clarity of intent when it comes to search engines and delivers the user more meaningful results; it’s more accurate and succinct to the users intention as oppose to robotic search results. You could think of it like conversational search, which provides more targeted and meaningful search results from the most relevant sources. The contextualisation of keywords is known as semantic search. Semantic search checks for context and intended meaning behind these keywords.
You should use relevant keywords and phrases in a more natural manner on your website and not just calculated keywords that merely seem to be relevant to a search query. Your content must be relevant to your brand, business, services and most importantly to what the user is searching for. Your content must also be shareable as social search has become a key player for SEO and semantic search, particularly when it comes to Google profile.
