Making documentation discoverable in search engines


Writing documentation is great. Writing with the intent to make your content easily discoverable is better. Search engine crawlers are users that parse your content to show it to humans. Let's look at the little things you can do to make your content bot-friendly.

If you shout "OK Google", Google will shout facts back at you. Visual and voice search mean that your content may not be consumed in its original format. Want to know more about making sure your content travels well? This is the talk for you!

We'll discuss wonderful topics : - search intent - search experience - meta titles & descriptions - content hierarchy - B.E.R.T. (machine learning used to improve Google search results) - voice and visual search

...but also provide tangible tips that you can integrate in your writing process.
