Question Are Search + Your World Results Better?

It appears "Search Plus Your World" can be either useful and interesting or quite unhelpful. The outcome is largely determined by the search time you are using and the content available on your Google+ account.

My colleague wrote about this is in a blog post: http://searchdailynews.blogspot.com/...ld-google.html - and I just thought I'd ask here what SEW readers' thoughts were...

Do you think Search + Your World Gives better results or does it just restrict your view of the world?

Re: Are Search + Your World Results Better?

I rarely go to facebook. I set up an app on Facebook to take my site RSS feed and post it up there automatically. I got more than 25 subscribers so I got the Facebook.com/myURL for that page.

Did you see the new WSJ article about how Google is changing? Over the next months they will be rolling out a new look. The first result will be generated by Google to answer the search query so that users will not need to go to another website to get their answer.

I guess they have been working on this for years - in secret. This will affect about 10 to 20 percent of the queries. Plus, it will hurt webmasters who will not get the traffic because GOOG will answer the query at the top of the results.

For instance: let's say you type in "How tall is Mount Everest". The first result will be the answer provided by Google via their best guess from indexing the web. The next result will be Wikipedia etc...

Re: Are Search + Your World Results Better?

I find myself having to log out of Google all too often because the only results it gives me are pages I've already visited. If all I wanted to do was navigate to pages in my History, I'd use my browser URL bar, which nowadays is smart enough to recognise URLs in my history based on key terms

Re: Are Search + Your World Results Better?

I have been hesitant to check my SERPS lately. Too afraid. But we still get some traffic, but not as much as we used to.

I think it is a good idea to log out before checking though. Thanks.

Re: Are Search + Your World Results Better?

I also find myself having to log out of Google all too often, especially if I want to see the "real" search results. There are so few people logged into Google searching Google that it's a necessity nowadays (to log out).

Re: Are Search + Your World Results Better?

no marketing friendly... when will Google start realizing we are part of the user experience - without us paying their business model fails

one of these shifts may lose them a big chunk of advertisers - while the push to localize was intended to get more small businesses advertising it has lessened big brands getting the right roi at times
