Team 8 Digital put together a short list for you, that might give you a few ideas on the possible future SEO trends of 2017:

1. AMPs The trend for applying AMPs, or accelerated mobile pages started by the end of 2016. We are positive that there will be more pages that apply AMPs this year, which is, in fact, an effective way to further boost the user experience for your visitors who access your content via mobile, as AMPs reduce data usage, loading time, while getting you a better ranking - as Google is already favoring sites using AMP.

2. More rockstar content People just got tired of generic content. We have seen it all: short and catchy, long and fishy. We don't know yet that what will be that new kind of rockstar content specifically, but there surely will be a change in the trends of content requirements.

3. SEO + UEO User Experience Optimization, or UEO, is getting more and more attention in online brand and business building. With UEO on the rise, 2017 will be a year where user experience meets search engine optimization, as the earlier already affects your success with the latter.

+1 The rise of personal branding Even though personal branding has numerous advantages compared to usual branding techniques, it seems like most players in the online business did not yet take full control of the benefits of personal branding. As an important and successful SEO technique, the numbers will be surely on the rise.
