    Google Predictions for 2013


    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.

    They will place more emphasis on the paid results and more than likely start charging for products to appear on their "shopping feature".

    I agree that there will not likely be any major updates, after all they will have their work cut out removing any bugs from the last two updates they implemented.

    Again as mentioned they will aquire more and more businesses and they will receive instant rankings due to being part of Google therefore knocking us competition even further down the rankings

    Google will adjust to a new playing field and competition when Microsoft announces that they have taken controlling interest in Facebook and will include the Bing search algo as part of the "New Facebook" configuration.

    I think we'll see Google continue to make it more difficult to be on page one without shelling out lots of $$. Only the big dogs will show there, making Google more of a directory than a search engine (at least for commodity e-commerce.) Why do you need Search if all you'll see on page one are house-hold names? As a result we'll see an increase in Search Engine e-commerce alternatives such as market places like Etsy, ebay, etc. In other words, more specialty marketplaces where the shopper by-passes search and goes directly to the source for a refined search.

    Good call Alex. I am always researching what's next at Google (as should all of you) and considered this as my prediction: Google will remove more and more features of analytics and make it a pay service for the masses in 2013. I do think that will happen someday, but not in 2013.

    That's a good call
    It makes me wonder though if the tax avoidance will have any impact on Google in the UK.
    Starbucks have just agreed to pay an extra 20 million quid, VOLUNTARILY!!! That's mighty big of them, but it just goes to show what an impact the news, and protests have had on their UK business.
    Google surely have to come up with something, after all we seem to be sat here (us in the UK) with our cap in our laps waiting for donations, but are people going to turn away from Google, I don't think so, people always seem reluctant to change their internet habits and their isn't an equal search engine out there.
    Coffee is pretty much the same wherever you get it from.
    It would be funny if it wasn't so serious!

    Updates wise - there can't be many major updates on the horizon...... can there?

    They can't keep ignoring Facebook and Twitter! Even more social less links.

    The trends will continue....

    Capturing global markets will get more difficult... Micro relevant content will become increasingly important to mico/geo markets..

    Google will settle multiple anti trust cases by opening up its non-organic search to other providers ie alternatives to Google ads will be displayed in Google results...

    Some people will win... and some will loose......

    My prediction about Google updates of 2013 is about to improved its paid result as some we can see on ask. We are quickly seeing updates in Google algorithm that changing result on daily basis that’s mean consumer are unable to see similar result on daily basic. Earlier it was easy to say that if our site on the top 10 then it will not get down fast but now what updates take other sites on your one that can’t be seen however the Google adword result still remain same and no effect of Google algorithm
