Advice Local Adds Voice Profile Technology to Judy's Book
Advice Local, a local search technology and digital marketing solution provider, has integrated voice search capabilities into the web profile pages on its Judy's Book business directory.
This enables businesses on Judy's Book to be found via voice search using devices like Amazon Echo, Google Home, Google Assistant, and Samsung's Bixby.
"Voice represents a powerful marketing tool for business everywhere" said Bernadette Coleman, CEO of Advice Local, in a statement. "We are very excited about developing and deploying our voice technology solutions to help businesses worldwide. Voice provides deeper engagement opportunities than just about any other technology in our industry today."
Advice's Presence Engine automatically applies LocalBusiness Schema, Review Schema, FAQ Schema, and Speakable Schema, the voice optimization markup. Speakable Schema enables the web profile to share specifics about the business' listing with voice assistants. Speakable Schema identifies sections within web profilesthat are best suited for audio playback using text-to-speech (TTS). Adding this markup allows search engines and other applications to identify content that can be read aloud on voice devices.
