I’ve been doing a lot of thinking recently about the future of SEO. As I see Google moving into more and more areas and pushing organic below the fold, I wonder about the future of SEO. Check out this search, which has half of an organic result above the fold on my 15″ laptop monitor:
I see Google revoking data access by removing access to their AdWords API, and I see (not provided) climbing ever higher in every vertical in which Distilled has clients. I don’t see Google as being friendly to SEOs – Google is monetizing everything, and the only way they can monetize organic listings (even though that is what they built themselves on) is through ads, so they’ll increasingly be more aggressive with ads while also moving into other areas.
