    I just noticed "Google Instant" today and I must admit it's pretty cool from a users stand point but what about us marketers?

    I think it's smarter to focus on local SEO these days anyway because if you live in a different city or region your going to get different results than everyone else.

    The results pop up instantly, I don't think the results change at all, the user just gets them quicker, if anything SEO long tail keywords is the key

    I don't think it'll change anything much. People are conditioned to using their search engines a certain way, and mostly people will still just type in and press enter (especially when using the little search field in the top right of most browsers, where nothing changes at all).

    Nobody thinks they might see what they are looking for before completely typing in their search?

    Are you sure? I think you should consider your sentence again after 3 months.

    Someone needs to find ways to take advantage of this.

    I bet mispellings is something that could be taken advantage of with this.

    how to use a tampon

    freaked me out since i have a young daughter and taught her awhile ago that was one of the best phrases to use to find out how to do something :)

    I so hope you're right.

    But I also know that there are so many people who are not very skilled at searching and that will cause long tail keyword traffic to drop.

    My dad for instance always starts a search by typing in the full url to google - including http and all to do a search.

    And a general comment to the people here who says that it doesn't matter because the ranking won't change; You are completely missing the point.

    Google Instant is all about letting people find a suitable page with as few keystrokes as possible - and few keystrokes and long tail keywords are just mutually exclusive.

    The impact of Google Instant will of course be clearly visible in your stats shortly, and then all speculation can stop ;)

    ive found with it that if i click their suggestion it gives a different result to when i carry on typing & search for the keyword,i think that will make a difference because no one likes typing , this looks like it will divide the traffic more evenly

    From a user stand point I personally think Google Instant is Quite annoying... Atleast thats my opionion... It looks like one of those pages with 5 banners saying "YOU ARE THE 9 999 999 VISITOR YOU WON CLICK HERE TO CLAIM PRIZE(VIRUS)
