Web 3.0 is expected to alter the way we use the internet today, significantly. There are some recurring elements of the more evolved version of the internet that will determine our marketing and research efforts in the future. We expect to see a rise in the application of artificial intelligence as we see social media sights in the search for semantic data.

Along with this, we can expect to witness more virtual and augmented reality tools come into existence. There will be seamless connectivity around the world. This will affect the way people search on web engines and perform research online, without any doubt. So the way we answer queries will be affected as well as distributed users and machines can interact with data.

I believe a thorough understanding of the keywords, search engines, markup, and semantics will play an even bigger role in the coming years. What we need to do to derive absolute benefits from SEO practices in the age of Web 3.0, is to understand the interconnectedness of data.

We need to invest in research on how structured data can be converted into unstructured data. Have training that creates an in-depth understanding of the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) ‘smart’ devices and how to manage them to improve your position in search engines.

Web 3 in terms of applications that leverage permissionless blockchains on the backend will have very little effect if any on SEO, since the sites still use web 2 infrastructure, for the most part, it’s just accessing account data and confirming transactions through an API request that relays to the node that secures it on the blockchain. The backend really doesn’t affect SEO in any shape or form, as long as you stick to all the SEO best practices your web 3 services will be fine.

Now where the exception lies is in the hosting of domains, where NFTs are used to hash in a domain address from a server living on a distributed network. Search engines have no interest in these niche networks yet and feel no reason to index them which is why products like Blockscan exist to service users.

I think that in this part of web 3 you will have to rely on other methods of sending users to your site or having a mirrored web 2 presence on an ICANN domain and having it interlinked between your blockchain domain.

Until search engines support these domain formats in their index, there isn’t much you can do on those sites.

Honestly, in the near future, Web 3.0 isn’t gonna have much impact on SEO or at least it isn’t gonna turn around the fundamentals of SEO through which websites have ranked on search engines till now. Unless billions of people start using web 3.0’s, our search engines are gonna bind with SEO in the same way.

The web’s next difficulty in comprehending the data it offers is where the Semantic Web comes in. It is a method of marking and categorizing content to share, reuse, find, and combine information. This web extension allows users to communicate data in a standard format and records how part of the data connects to real-world objects using a defined language. All of this information about real-world things will be linked to databases.

Subsequently, these databases will be linked to others that hold information on the same real-world object. The term apple can refer to either the fruit or the technology company that invented the iPhone.You’ll be able to use a complex search query like I want to go on a week-long vacation to Barcelona, stay in a luxury hotel, and visit several famous museums with Web 3.0. The search engine will analyze your query.

  • Web 3.0 is widely viewed as the internet’s future.
  • Ownership and control are decentralized, unlike in the Web2 era.
  • Web3 was born out of the delicate ecosystem, which allows for more privacy, increased transparency, the removal of mediators, and the facilitation of data ownership and digital identity solutions.

Web 3.0 has the potential to help by providing a decentralized, anonymous service for directing searches through sources that have not been altered by the influence of one company.

This will include all types of web pages, including social media sites and news sites, as well as removing intermediaries that may filter or censor search results.

What this means for marketers is that Web 3.0 will increase business exposure because consumers can now quickly locate material about their needs more easily than they could before! As more people are forearmed with knowledge of what’s available online without being told by the man, they are likely to seek out these businesses over those who don’t know how to promote themselves on the new platforms.

This is what drives integrity in the markets – if a business is not providing what it promised, then customers can easily find out about it and take their money elsewhere.

On the other hand, businesses that are transparent and honest with their clients will be rewarded with loyalty and recommendations.

Web 3.0 is bound to create a more level playing field for all businesses as search engines become more democratized. It is important for businesses to get their Web 3.0 ducks in a row sooner rather than later, so they can take advantage of this massive shift in how the internet operates!

It indicates companies with more pull with the search engine when appropriately SEO-ed into the system. With web 3.0, the search engines are getting personally tailored to your preferences and dislikes. Organizations will start to pay enormous cash to gain a little more influence.
