Google's next big step

Okay all just wanting some of your opinions…

The question is, what do you think Google’s next BIG change will be on the way that it will influence how a site is ranked.

eg. stuff like in the past of PR not being used/considered. If you were to guess, what would you think?

I don’t think that it will be a surprise to anyone that social media sites like Twitter are going to become a much larger portion of the ranking algo especially for QDF (query deserves freshness) type queries.

exactly, try using plurk too :slight_smile:

Well Google hasn’t (yet) confirmed that speed will affect the ranking despite the Caffeine update, but we keep seeing new features in Google Webmaster Tools that related to how fast your website is loading. New metrics have also been popping up in Google Analytics. I think the page load time of your website will end up playing a larger role.

I also agree with tke71709 in that search is moving to real time results. Being able to get info on breaking events is clearly a priority for Google and Bing. With both Twitter and Facebook launching real-time search engines, Google needed to respond, which they did.

well google announced the google caffeine could be their next generation infrastructure. if this is true its going to be big change…

Isn’t it exciting on how Google is making changes to improve their services. If I would expect something I’d say that showing results of your connectivity with other sites or your network be also shown. Say, if a query has been made and your site shows up in the SERP, there will be sites included in the sitelinks maybe, instead of just categories or pages of the site, for sites/blogs that are connected to you… although that may make stalking someone a little bit easier…mmmmm…

Larry Page is going to stand for president and I’m going to become a US citizen (see, even spelled it properly) so that I can vote for him.

Google is apart from our prediction, so we need to accept whatever may happen.

I am agree with Hyperbolik…
