A Miami Copywriter Explains Search Intent

Keywords are essential to your 2019 SEO strategy. It used to be that a marketer would do a little research and then present a business owner with a list of phrases to be included in their content. Search intent is now the focus. As a Miami copywriter, I can assure you that search intent is a powerful concept that should be considered when generating copy.

Search intent

Google now wants keywords to be as conversational as possible: phrases that people use when speaking with others – or with Siri, Alexa or another assistant. Informational intent is when someone wants the answer to a question. For example, “Where do people buy beetroot lattes?” or “When is the best time to scuba dive in Miami?”/“When are home sales lower?” or “What’s the best way to improve my curb appeal to sell my home?” Navigational intent is used to get to a specific website, such as www.sirenpublications.com. This type of search intent is only valuable if you are the destination site. Transactional intent is when someone is ready to buy and is searching for the best deal. Similar to transactional intent, commercial investigation is when searchers need a bit more time and convincing before making a purchase. 

Making search intent work for you

A website must reflect the needs of warm leads. Have articles front and center for those searching with informational intent. If a visitor is searching with transactional intent, have products and services on display as soon as they land on your page. Make sure they have direct access to your shop. You cannot do anything for navigational searchers unless you are the specific website they want. Have some fun with commercial investigators by creating graphics with price and feature comparisons.
