Well the big news today is that Google are rolling out their new Instant Search. To learn more go here Google Instant: It Searches Before You Type
Basically, as you are typing, the search results are dynamically changing to predict what you are searching for; you never hit the enter button to search anymore.
I really have no clue how this will affect traffic for certain rankings but it will certainly create a bit of an unpredictable mess!
Looks like an awesome feature IMO
That is one hundred and twenty percent bad news! I really do not mind waiting the time it takes to hit the button that reads [google search] so long as I can still click on the [i'm feeling lucky] button!
Is this an end to Googlemancy?
This is certainly gonna have some huge effects on the current estimated search volumes for any given keyword. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.

These guys should be in politics. It's a win-win for Google. Isn't it great when a well-laid-out plan comes together?
