However, I noticed that these posts contained SEO tips for voice searches without any research or data.
We decided to conduct our first large-scale voice-search SEO study.
What did this content accomplish?
This post has received 5.6K backlinks.
The best part?
These links were obtained without a lot of outreach.

You can add a few “Searches related …” terms” to your content.
