Now in 2016, this is the top SEO trend that video content will overtake written content in terms of engagement, reach, social signal and overall ROI. Google has experimenting this in search results by showing the video based ads. Well a little tip by me is that always try to add a video related to the blog post which will boost the ranking.

The content of social sites will be indexed faster

The content of social websites already gets indexed by the Google by now its will be indexed faster in 2016. If you search anything in Google, you will get Facebook post or Twitter tweets in search results. This means Google has made a deal with social networks (Facebook, Twitter). Well in 2016 this SEO trend will continue and the content of those websites will gain more appearance in search engines.

The power of News and Event reportage will be diminished by aggregated content

The content which is posted frequently will get more ranking then the news or event content in 2016. In other words, the website which posts regular and instantaneous content will overtake the news websites. By this, there will be more visibility for editorial and evergreen content in search results.
