What’s the Future of SEO?

The good news is: the number of searches on Google keeps growing.

The bad news is: decreasing clickthrough rates on organic results ( especially in mobile), fewer big companies are dominating the world’s Google search results and more results answered entirely in Google’s SERPs.

As Google answers a higher and higher percent of queries in the results themselves and refers out less traffic to websites, we’re all gonna have to think about how we influence search audiences through what Google shows rather than just focusing on driving traffic to our own sites.

A big part of SEO’s future will be on the SERP rather than driving traffic to websites.
