Ahh... guys... I think we might have a problem Code: http://thenextweb.com/google/2011/06/14/google-announces-instant-pages-delivers-common-result-pages-instantly/ Can anyone else see the implications of Google being able to filter out and control to a much higher degree what content it believes is good and not what we tell it is good. I think that as the months go by we are going to see less and less importance on the types of ranking factors that we all use now days to a much more social oriented way of deciding content value. My thought: As the G knows more and more about our networks, friend circles and habits it will take more of what our networks are viewing and referring to more often as the indicative indicators to quality content. just think about it, Google knows what I search for, what sites I look at most often and what my networks are, it also knows what sites I interact with and who else interacts with me. In a nut shell the G will return results based on how my network surfs and browses not on how many articles and links the site has. So how can we find the work around? Somehow control the social and people networks... Thoughts?
