How SGE Will Dramatically Change Your SEO Traffic #2620
November 28, 2023

In episode #2620, We delve into the impact of Google’s search generative experience (SGE) on SEO traffic. SGE, an AI-generated response providing instant answers in search results, is poised to alter the click-through rate (CTR) model, resulting in lower CTRs for top-ranking positions. We stress the importance for content creators like us to produce comprehensive and up-to-date content to stay competitive in this evolving landscape. Furthermore, we observe a shift in user behavior, with longer search queries contributing to an elongated tail of search terms.
