    I don't know if you guys noticed but a lot of answer type popups are showing for review keywords. If you haven't check it out by googling best ____ .

    I personally feel if its permanent Google is really back to its early days and basically deteriorating in quality. Those boxes look tacky and shows that they basically want to take over the front page by showing ads and huge boxes so that nobody would bother scrolling down.

    Plus I am sure someone will pretty soon figure it out on how to game the box and have an awesome time.

    Even now for some of the keywords that I checked the answer boxes are not even taking content from sites that are on the front page.

    What are your thoughts?

    Just meta data that Google pulls from sites. If you notice though its always from authority sites, or sites that dominate a niche. Also it has to be a question big enough to HAVE an answer box.

    I've noticed answer boxes with some of the shittest products available on Amazon. Not to mention they are the #1 result in normal organics as well... completely dissipated the value of atleast having a #2 ranking for some of my keywords because Google likes kissing big brand ass.

    I don't like it either. It takes up the room of 3-4 regular SERP results. Won't be around long IMHO.
