    No difference here yet. I'm wondering if this isn't an opportunity... will people want to find news articles and books when they are looking for a website?

    Yeah, it will be interesting how the users react to it. Are they going to like it, is Google going to grow their user base even more? Or are they going to prefer the traditional way. And then Yahoo's and MSN reaction to it.

    I was surprised to read that Google said they considered doing this as far back as 2001, but didn't have the resources to do it.

    I'm wondering if we're going to see a whole new type of spam (probably) New services to get your video on page 1 etc. Time will tell. Still not seeing too much going on but haven't really checked out a lot of terms.

    Sorry for bumping this (and I apologize if this is discussed elsewhere), but I was just reading something that bought up some questions regarding Google's Universal Search feature.

    Mainly, I'm curious as to what others think about this, and how they feel it'll affect SEO practices in the near future? Will something like this cause more work for others, when the old search was focused mainly on text content (and now ranking involves different types of media content)?

    The article I read was from SEO News: http://www.seo-news.com/archives/2007/aug/23.html (not sure how reliable this site is)
