Ever wonder how Google, Bing, etc figures out who gets listed in search results?  Most people don’t realize that the algorithms that the Search Engines use are more and more reliant on “readability”, not keywords.  And as “voice search” becomes more popular, readability will be everything.  As content managers and blog writers, we need to be aware of how our content and blogs read to the viewer – is it full of industry jargon, or can it be read and understood easily?
