On the 9th of September Krishna De and I organised a panel of SEO experts for an online discussion on the newly launched Google Instant and it’s impact on business owners.
Thanks to John Ring, David Quaid, Jill Whalen and Joost de Valk for joining us on such short notice and to Jessica Bowman, who couldn’t make the session, but provided some of her insights in advance. We were very lucky to get a great panel like this on such short notice.

The main view seemed to be that whilst the new interface will have an impact for many users, it probably will not be necessary for SEOs to change their strategies much — but mostly it’s a bit too early to tell and business owners shouldn’t panic, but as Jill Whalen commented, “watch the analytics” and see if there is an impact.
