Using these specific questions, you can develop the content. This content is surely going to answer a lot of questions by the audience.

Upon clicking any question, a drop down shows some clickable links which take you to entirely different SERPs. If you are able to rank your website against majority of those questions, you are definitely going to get more leads and, hence, better conversion rate.

To conclude, we can say that semantic SEO is an approach that cares about relevancy, value and the immediate questions that searchers would ask.
