I've been reading about Google Suggest for the last hour and would like to hear what my respected fellow Cre8ers think about this rather significant change in Google's UI. I thought this article was especially good in outlining some of the potential effects this could have on KW research and user behavior.
I am still waiting for this to start appearing on my own computer. I guess others are already seeing it.
What I have seen is this application being used at YouTube and I didn't like it there. First, there is the issue of dropdowns - not really my favorite style of navigation and not just because of the historic SEO issues with this. What I found to be problematic was that with every letter I typed into the YouTube search box, the river of suggestions below it altered. This created a lot of movement right below my typing space and I found that to be a distraction to my eye.
Good or bad, this is a big change with numerous potential ramifications for anyone who uses Google, and I'd love to know what members think about this.
