news on Google

October 9, 2010

The Google Adwords Keyword Tool is now largely useless. Google announced at SMX that the tool will now only provide keywords that Google deems commercial. Read that as “profitable.”.

Real-time search is blowing up. Remember the Google “Caffeine” update? That was all about indexing the web and returning results as fast as possible. One speaker reported having a blog post indexed and ranking within one minute of publishing. On top of that, Twitter is geared up to process your queries as fast as you can enter them. Twitter can process 12,000 queries per second right now. Simple math makes that 1 billion queries a day.

Google has 97% of the mobile browser search traffic.   55% of queries are 3+ words and 20% of those are new queries         T. Friesen SMX East, New Yourk
