I personally do really like the new feature searching while you type. What do you think about it? Do you prefer the traditional “push-the-button” search approach?

RWW asks how will this change affect your companie’s search engine optimization? <name> tries to answer the similar question on if SEO will still be required in 5 years.

For me the more interesting question is how did google do the software engineering part? How did they get it to answer millions of search querys in real-time?

  1. Will instant lead to the end of the long tail? In my opinion – YES! SEO’s have often heralded the power of the long tail but with the release of Google instant the likelihood of users typing in 4,5 or 6 word keyphrases is unlikely.

    Just my 2 cents!
