    What will be the future of SEO?

    Since search engines, especially Google, are thinking of real time search and Google also has released Beta version www(.)Google(.)com(/)realtime then what will be the outcome of real time search. Will SEO survive?

    It will, realtime search could never replace the current way of searching. Authoritive sites might take the places of minisites again though since those might be more reliable according to Google

    The "Updates" part of realtime seems to encourage spammy behaviour to me. IE, if I want to be first on that page, I create an army of Twitter and Facebook update bots to do scheduled, random updates all day.

    I think the future of SEO is not going to be that much different from today's web situation. You know, nearly all of the major search engines like Google, Yahoo plus Bing have been moving from the on page and site specific aspects plus scores to the off page optimization elements which as you can guess in most cases involve addition of links. So it can be expected that even years from now, the top ranking sites would be the ones powered by better links and also informative contents.

  5. SEO will live with Google and die with Google.

    I think the realtime search concept is a brain fart. Yeah, there may be some people who are fascinated with Twitter and FaceBook, but most of those posts are so irrelevant that they are useless.

    It will probably end up being a niche. Replacing the current search model with one focused on a mix of social networks and news would likely be disastrous for Google because a large segment of their searchers just do not care about social networks.

    In other words, I would not be too concerned about realtime search completely replacing Google's search results.

    SEO is slowly moving toward legitimate marketing. So there will always be work for those that learn and improve.

    Top Dogger is correct...realtime info will be unreliable..people want good information when they search online...no a tweet or FB fanpage update.. Informative content and Link building(white-hat) will always be the cornerstone of SEO

    That could also mean that authoritative websites will take over, news websites, because those are the ones that bring the latest news which is reliable -- not just a random page
