Biggest Search Engine Announcement in SEO History

Sorry, I have no announcement to make here but I started this thread to provoke a discussion of like-minded individuals.

In your mind, and joking aside please, if a search engine was to announce something and precede this announcement with the tag line "The biggest announcement in search history for an SEO", what would you think they are talking about.

What in your mind can a search engine announce to the public and have such a drastic impact on the SEO community?

Can't we try to be serious? Otherwise I need to move it to the padded room.

Actually, it can lead up to something dead serious Barry.

Even though Daniel Dulitz covered the reasoning behind Google *not* having paid submit in the interview with Mike Grehan, if they ever did announce a PFI program it would turn our thinking upside down. I for one would be scrambling to be the first in line, credit card in hand. Or rather, would have been a while back, when I suspected it might be on the horizon because Freshbot activity sure made it look like the capability was there.

Now, with how scoring is, I'm not so sure. I think an argument could be made for it either way.

Marcia's right - if you required pay for inclusion to get on the larger search engines - especially Google. That would certainly be a major announcement that would overwhelmingly impat SEO.

AdWords as a business model seems to have removed that threat from Google, though.

The personal search is going to be a big one if it can be pulled off right - not least because of what it means to advertisers - does anyone remember the scene from Minority Report when Tom Cruise when customised ads ask him to buy a Lexus?

Even more specualtion - here's an interesting entry exploring the possibility of Google hooking up Orkut tech with user PCs, for custom Google networks:

Fuzzy logic has replaced probablistic computational methods for calculating link popularity and conceptual analysis has replaced keyword matching...making SEO that much more fun & interesting.

Death to keywords, long live concepts...would make for interesting design / textual considerations, no?

Google admits: We only keep the PageRank myth for webmasters - we actually haven't used it for years! Despite that, we're still loaded
and couldn't give a **** about search engine optimisation. AdWords is where it's at.

Search Adapts to GPS Capabilities for your Car.

Spammers protest against Search Engines because they can not optimize for GPS since 95% of algorithm weight goes to the searcher's GPS coordinates. SEO/SEM professionals jump for joy that spammers finally don't get their chance, but are left clueless as to what to do for their clients as well.
