Google released a number of new features yesterday to make your search experience that much better. With the recent explosion of Twitter (a micro-blogging platform), much criticism has been addressed regarding the relevancy of Google search results. Twitter and OneRiot have development advanced real-time search engines to provide you with latest trends which are virtually instant. For example, if you search for BNP on Twitter, OneRiot, and Google, you get completely different results. The latest BNP page found on Google was 9 hours ago, while Twitter provides pages that are just seconds old. How is Google going to keep up with the latest trends and real-time search results that users are becoming accustomed to? This is main concern Google Marissa Mayer addressed at Google’s Searchology event May 12th.

Yes obviously! If these new features are adopted by users it may mean that websites will, in the future, need to consider how a person is searching and not just what they are searching for when deciding on a SEO strategy.

If you spend a few minutes testing out Google’s new search engine features and comparing the results it’s evident that SEO will be impacted to a significant degree. The good news is that the date feature encourages fresh information development. The bad news is that brands will have to work that much harder to maintain relevant, updated content... or will have to be more creative in social media to make up for minimized SEO control in search.

I hope I’m not jumping the gun but if I had to guess I would say this is the biggest change to Google in recent memory. At a very fundamental level, it puts the SERP relevance in the hands of the searcher rather than squarely on Google’s algorithm.SEO’s are definitely going to have to become more holistic to compete- possibly adding video, blog posting and other content creation to their services.
