Why did we Build These Apps?
Because our digital marketing clients include some of the top brands and largest sites in the world, we at Stone Temple realize how important it is to be ahead of the wave on any technology or development that could impact how people search, get information, and decide what to purchase.
But sometimes data isn’t enough. Sometimes to really know a technology you have to do it. You have to build it.
So that’s why we decided to learn how to create our own Actions on Google and Alexa Skills to answer SEO questions. Our apps allow any user of a Google Assistant-powered app or device (such as Google Home) or any Alexa-powered Amazon device (such as the Echo series) to get a quick answer to over 100 (soon to be over 240) SEO-related questions.
