Get Ready for the Google Search Revolution: Introducing Search Generative Experience (SGE)

Google is shaking up the search landscape once again with its latest innovation: Search Generative Experience (SGE). But what exactly is SGE, and how will it impact your online presence? Let’s dive in.

What is SGE?

SGE is Google’s newest feature that provides AI-generated overviews in search results.

What to Expect

While the full launch date of SGE remains unconfirmed, rumors suggest it might debut at Google’s I/O event on May 14th, 2024. There’s also speculation about its availability—some say it will be behind a paid subscription, potentially impacting Google’s Ads network.

Impact on Traffic and Strategies

The impact of SGE on organic and paid traffic will vary depending on its launch state. If behind a paywall, the impact may be minimal. However, if launched without one, businesses will need to reassess keywords and pivot strategies to target queries AI can’t answer, focusing on more transactional keywords.
