Google Integrates Google Suggests into search box
April 13, 2009 Author: Adam Lee
I’ve just noticed Google has integrated ‘Google Suggests’ into their search box. Apparently they did this a couple of weeks ago but i just spotted it, (sorry i’m a bit slow on this one!). http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/03/local-flavor-for-google-suggest.html Between Love & Goodbye film Balto III: Wings of Change video
For those that don’t know what Google Suggests does it is a tool that offers suggestions as you type into the search box with the number of results appearing on the right. It is really useful for search term research for SEO.
However, now it is integrated into the search box will this affect current search term research? People will think less about what they have to type and rely more on Google’s suggestions. Will mean sites need to optimise for less terms but the terms they do optimise for will be far more competitive as everyone will be optimising the same terms.
Have to keep an eye on the analytics to see if the longer tail terms start to drop off for traffic flow.
