Does Google semantic search mean less traffic for your site?
Naturally! Google has an envy problem right now and that is time people spend on Facebook. Naturally if it wants to increase time spent on Google’s properties it will have to offer more content right there instead of sending users to your site!
Is this good for users? Yes! Good for Google? Yes! Good for you? Not.
Well why do you feel you are entitled to get traffic from Google anyway?
Are we getting ready to see a massive overhaul of Google or just some expansion of what we’ve already seen for years. That’s the question. Either way, it appears Google wants to keep users more on its own sites and less on other people’s sites.
