It's that time of year again! Gaze into your SEO Crystal Ball and tell us what it says. Last year was nuts as we had to relearn what we think we knew on at least a couple of occasions.
What are your predictions for 2013?
(Here are the predictions for we made for 2012)
My prediction for 2013: It will be a quiet year for earth-shattering updates. We won't have a panda or penguin sized earthquake next year. Instead we will see BIG updates in the search results page as Google continues to step on organic results by placing its own web properties ahead of us. We have already been moved down by hotel, translation, showtimes (and lots more) queries. I predict that next year up to 20% of all queries will return a Google property above the organic results.
I also think this will be a newsworthy story and Google will get some negative press because of it.
