This surge is propelled by factors like decreased institutional response time, early adopter benefits, and the demand for data-informed decision-making, enhanced customer experiences, and cost-saving prospects.
Our third PR prediction for the Year of the Dragon 2024 combines data with search engine optimisation (SEO), and automation.
We predict there will be a jump in pSEO as a means to leverage data to answer search engine outcomes at scale.
What is pSEO?
Programmatic Search Engine Optimization is the creation of numerous SEO-optimized web pages on a large scale, often using existing data and pre-programmed rules.
By automating the generation of keyword targeted pages, usually from a database, brands can produce thousands of website pages based on a template with information inserted based on the search engine request.
For example, if you type in 'Weather in Hong Kong' the following page may be served.
Now, type in 'Weather in Singapore' and the following page turns up.
This is programmatic SEO. You are seeing a template with the insertion of data to answer the search query. The template's look and feel stays the same with only the content changing. The relevant content is served according to the keyword 'Weather in Singapore'.
Here are some benefits of programmatic SEO:
Programmatic SEO allows for the creation of a large number of keyword targeted pages, which can help businesses target a wide range of low-competition keywords and increase their search engine visibility.
Better User Experience
By targeting long-tail keywords, programmatic SEO often results in clear call-to-action pages, leading to higher conversion rates compared to pages with vague or unclear CTAs. Travel websites are a good example of this.
Better Search Visibility
pSEO helps businesses rank for hundreds of different searches related to their products or services, improving their search engine rankings and visibility.
Requires Less Effort
Automation plays a significant role by reducing the manual effort required for creating and optimizing content.
Data Driven Approach
Programmatic SEO allows businesses to use data from a database, such as product prices, weather, or location information, to create content that is relevant and useful to users.
There are many pSEO opportunties for brands with troves of data. Particularly in the travel industry.
With HKers love of travel, and the fact Christmas, New Year, Chinese New Year and Easter holidays are close together, it's travel & tourism brands who stand to gain the most from pSEO in the next few months.
These figures indicate that the Asia Pacific region is a major hub for both inbound and outbound travel, with millions of trips being made each year.
